An Entire Administration of Misogynist Wrecks

[Content Note: Misogyny; xenophobia.]

The Trump Regime is truly an administration of pathetic, abusive men (and a few women) who hate women. And, like most vile misogynist wrecks, the members of the Trump Regime are intimidated by any woman who doesn't prostrate herself in service to their patriarchal agenda. Like Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Even "the generals," who Donald Trump told us were the strongest men in the nation and who are supposedly the "moderating" influences in his shitshow of an administration, are at core just shivering misogynists who have to insult any woman who asserts herself as their equal (or better). Like John Kelly.

Jason Leopold at BuzzFeed: John Kelly Called Elizabeth Warren an "Impolite Arrogant Woman" in an Email.
White House chief of staff John Kelly called Sen. Elizabeth Warren an "impolite arrogant woman" in a private email he exchanged last year with his top aide following a telephone conversation with the Massachusetts Democrat about the Trump administration's travel ban.

"Absolutely most insulting conversation I have ever had with anyone," Kelly, then serving as the Secretary of Homeland Security, wrote to Kevin Carroll, who was then his senior counselor at the Department of Homeland Security, in an email from Feb. 8, 2017. "What an impolite arrogant woman. She immediately began insulting our people accusing them of not following the court order, insulting and abusive behavior towards those covered by the pause, blah blah blah."

Carroll responded to his boss's criticisms of Warren in an email the same day. "Too bad Senate Majority Leader McConnell couldn't order her to be quiet again!"
Fucking hell.

Imagine if the "most insulting conversation" you "ever had with anyone" was talking to Elizabeth Warren about policy. What a truly privileged life John Kelly has led.

I suppose observing such a thing makes me an impolite arrogant woman, too. Oh well. Nevertheless, I persist.
