Posts Tagged ‘Mia Love’

I have been trashed once or twice on Facebook. Among the most hurtful accusations was that I am a Republican. I have been a registered Democrat since 1968.

Donald Trump was way out of line today. His remarks about Mia Love were sexist, misogynistic, and untrue.

1. She has not lost, yet. That race remains undecided as I type.

2. His play on her name was crude and distasteful.

3. Any elected official should feel s/he can appeal to the sitting president for assistance in a hostage situation without her/himself being held political hostage to that president.

I do not agree with Mia Love on any of her policy positions. In fact, I disagree strongly. But she did not deserve to be spoken of as if her party affiliation somehow put her at Trump’s beck and call. In fact it was worse than sexist and misogynistic. There was a racist undertone.

Being a Republican does not make her his personal property. The 13th Amendment abolished that. I haven’t seen anyone speak up about this. So I will.

This race is still undecided. I hope McAdams prevails. Mia Love, however did not deserve the disrespect accorded her by the man who went on to insult members of the press for asking questions at the same event today and, further, revoked the press pass of one of them.
