"I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family"

Why is the President using the language of honor killing?

Would he have said the same thing about a white woman?

Would he have said the same thing about any man?


An honor killing or shame killing is the murder of a member of a family, due to the perpetrators' belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonour upon the family, ...

Human Rights Watch defines "honor killings" as follows:
... The mere perception that a woman has behaved in a way that "dishonors" her family is sufficient to trigger an attack on her life.

I see that Twitter and Reddit and even 4chan have taken note of this, but the MSM seems to have missed it.

(Just as an aside, I find the expletive "motherfucker" to be pointless, weird, hugely vulgar and tinged with misogyny, and, while I have quite a colorful vocabulary I don't generally hesitate to use and come from the 60s when that one was rather popular, I have never used it in all my life.)
