Trump embodies the worst of male sexual entitlement and rank misogyny. And white evangelicals put him and keep him in power. White evangelical Trump supporters are all that stands between this thug and the law. That Trump exploits his position to have sex with women who aren’t all that into him isn’t an indictable offense, but it is a sad reflection on a small, insecure thug not to mention a reflection on his white evangelical enablers who put this mobster who threatens people into power.
When even the GOP-shill Wall Street Journal says this you know Trump is going down: “mistakes of character tend to catch up with everyone and that’s what is now happening with ..Trump and his many women.” The WSJ (in its own way) just predicted the end of the Trump “presidency.”
Given Trump’s history and his lifelong habit of surrounding himself with buffoons and hooligans, Daniels’ threat story doesn’t seem all that far-fetched and is all too believable. Trump’s thugs have threatened many people over the years as was detailed in this New York Times story.
Trump has well-known and longstanding ties to organized crime as was proven in this Politico story. And he has made a career of publicly threatening journalists or anyone who crosses him with physical violence.
