Republicans Slut-Shame Megyn Kelly, Reward Trump

...what professional political observers missed was the fact that Kelly is a woman, a woman who put on the spot a man who happens to be the front-running presidential candidate of a party that boasts misogyny as its calling card.

The backlash against Kelly was not long in coming. NewsMax, the right-wing click-bait site, dug up Kelly’s 2010 appearance on the Howard Stern Show, touting it in its newsletter under the headline: “Megyn Kelly Rollicked With Howard Stern: Breasts, Penises, Sex,” as if talking about having sex with her husband was somehow on par with the misogyny exhibited by Trump. Then again, in the Republican mind, women who like sex—even sex with men—are to be vilified always, because a woman admitting to liking sex with a man is somehow far worse than a man displaying his contempt for and objectification of women.

1. I don't think she should be refered to as 'S' in any context

 

Even Trump wasn't suggesting that she was, he was disparaging her for the mere fact of being (biologically) a woman

2. How is this playing with Republican women, I wonder?

 

You could not design a more destructive campaign strategy than this (in terms of the general election)

5. Megan Kelly ridiculed and participated in shaming Sandra Fluke.

Gleefully joining in with Limbaugh and O'Reilly. Yes it is wrong for Republicans to go after her like this, but she has used the same tactics.
