"10 years ago I was working in the restaurant at Donald Trump's golf course..." [View all]

This article from today's LA Times has stirred up a lot of memories and feelings that I had tried not to think about for the past several years. Those feelings are difficult to ignore when your former boss is running for president of The United States of America. There's little escaping hearing his name and seeing his face on a daily basis, unless you want to go live off the grid in the back of beyond, which doesn't sound half bad.

10 years ago I was working in the restaurant at Donald Trump's golf course, the one mentioned in this article. It's located about 5 minutes from where I grew up. I worked there before he bought the place and continued to work there after. I brought him his eggs for breakfast and his favorite clam chowder for lunch countless times. Somehow I passed for being attractive enough to wait on him. I know I wasn't his first choice and I wasn't his type. He didn't make me stand there while he put his arm around me and made the other men at the table tell me how beautiful I was like he did to my friend. I didn't get sent home or not scheduled for work on the day's when he was visiting the property, but plenty of my female coworkers did. I was in my mid 20's at the time and I could tell that was pushing it for being able to be in The Donald's presence. He wanted to see girls still in their teens, the thinner and prettier the better. If you didn't match this you could expect to not be scheduled, you could expect to be in line for getting fired.

I guess the reason I'm writing all this is to offer another true example of this man's deplorable character. Sure, there are much bigger issues at stake in this election. Trump giving the "you're fired" to women who didn't match up to his unrealistic beauty standards is not number one on the agenda. But it does highlight the disturbing nature of his mentality. Being a woman and consciously choosing to vote for this man, is choosing to vote against your gender. It's choosing to let this sexist bully get away with discrimination against not only women, but immigrants, minorities, and the working class.
