I'm not saying he isn't sexist. I just think Chula put a lot of stuff in there that wasn't misogynistic.

I would also like to ask Chula what he thinks of Hillary for the way she dealt with Bill's rape accusers?

I didn't read every one of them. What are a couple that you would say are sexist? I might agree, but I'm just curious what a couple would be that you'd say are sexist.

There really weren't many. A lot of them were just rude, some of them objectified women in fairly sexist ways though.

Not sexist:

2007: When he compared women to architecture

This appears in his bible of business wisdom Trump 101: The Way to Success:

"Beauty and elegance, whether in a woman, a building, or a work of art, is not just superficial or something pretty to see."

Sexist:

November, 2010: When he asked men to rate women

According to a report in the New York Post, former female contestants on the show complained that Trump consistently objectified women.

Mahsa Saeidi-Azcuy claimed: “So much of the boardroom discussion concerned the appearance of the female contestant - discussing the female contestants' looks - who he found to be hot.

“He asked the men to rate the women - he went down the line and asked the guys, ‘Who’s the most beautiful on the women’s team?’"

Gene Folkes, a 46-year-old financial adviser, said: “I think it was most uncomfortable when he had one [female] contestant come around the board table and twirl around.”


I also feel the sentiments toward breastfeeding as sexist, in my opinion. If you don't like seeing it, fine, but to make such a scene and call it disgusting?

2011: When he called breastfeeding 'disgusting’

Trump was in court testifying in a deposition over a failed Florida real estate project when lawyer Elizabeth Beck asked to take a break to breastfeed her three-month old daughter.

Trump and his team objected, so she pulled out her breast pump to prove it. In an incident that the Republican presidential candidate "does not dispute", he walked out of the room, telling Beck she was "disgusting".

What definition of "sexist" would you be using so that rating women or focusing on them sexually or in terms of appearance would somehow be sexist?

Full Definition of sexism. 1 : prejudice or discrimination based on sex; especially : discrimination against women. 2 : behavior, conditions, or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles based on sex.
Sexism | Definition of Sexism by Merriam Webster

I think that quote made it quite clear he was objectifing the women of the show and stereotyping them as eye candy. Not to mention that fact that he made a woman walk around the table and twirl? Really?

I'm not certain how she dealt with accusers. Partisan articles about it I throw out. This is the quote she gave that they try to define as threatening.

ďI think weíre going to find some other things. And I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.Ē

This thread the past few days has been about Trumps own words. Not what people accuse Hillary of supposedly saying 25 years ago.

If you can provide some solid quotes from her that truly show threats and/or blackmail I'll comment on them.

Okay, I agree that this discussion better belongs in the Hilary thread, and I'll post the articles there, but as far as the 25 years ago thing isn't that exactly what we're doing with Trump right now?

What she supposedly said vs. what Trump has actually said is the bigger issue. I should have made that clearer.
