Trump the actual sexist

“Clinton’s focus on the female gender is sexist,” (Aug. 14) so says Diana Rickert, a writer for Illinois Policy Institute. So what if women vote for her because she is a woman. There will be men and women who won’t vote for her because she is. So what if women vote for her because they know she won’t punish them if they don’t behave or take away their right to their own body. Or demean them.

There still is discrimination against women, physical, financial and mental and no better example of abuse of women than Donald Trump’s continuous insults of woman who cross him. He labeled Carly Fiorina too ugly to be president. To quote Carly: “It’s still different for a woman” and she is right.

When interviewed about “The Apprentice,” Trump said that all of the women flirted with him and that was to be expected. “The early victories by women on ‘The Apprentice’ were to a very large extent dependent on their sex appeal,” wrote Trump, later adding, “I believe we’re all equal except women still have to try harder and they know it.”

So Hillary, go for the support of women. Trump is too ugly to be president.
