Michelle Obama's Speech
After last week’s leaked recording in which Donald Trump bragged about degrading women and condoned sexual assault, Anderson Cooper asked Trump if he had ever assaulted a woman. Trump unequivocally said, “no.” He lied to the nation.
In the past 24 hours, numerous women have told their story about the time they were assaulted by Donald Trump. There is the reporter, the businesswoman, the secretary, the woman at Mar-a-Lago, and the 21-year old beauty pageant contestant. Then there are the stories of Trump walking in on teenage beauty pageant contestants while they were changing, and the time he declared “I’m going to be dating her in ten years” about a ten-year-old girl. More stories are sure to come.
The President should be a role model – someone our children can look up to and aspire to be. Donald Trump is the opposite of that. Electing him will perpetuate a dangerous culture of disrespect toward women that teaches our sons that there are no consequences for their actions, and teaches our daughters that they should live in fear. The President should represent the best America has to offer, not the worst.
Trump's comments towards women have been disturbing since day one. He has called women “fat pigs,” “slobs,” and “dogs,” but his physical actions towards women are disgusting and indefensible. What he attempted to brush off as “locker room banter,” was much, much more than that.
Donald Trump possesses a fundamental disrespect of women so strong that every voter in CD2 should take note, and then vote against him. He must not become our President.
