Donald Trump & His PR Clearly Don’t Understand The Meaning Of Rape

Originally posted on 97.9 The Beat:

Donald Trump Presidential AnnouncementDonald Trump?s accession to the GOP presidential candidacy throne has been swift, but not without Trump-isms that read as glaring red flags not only in his presidential candidacy, but in his general life view.

Take, for instance, Trump?s inflammatory comment regarding how he envisions Mexican border control should be improved, labeling Mexicans as rapists and criminals. His reasoning?

“I mean somebody’s doing it!… Who’s doing the raping?”

Donald Trump and his PR team have a narrow definition of rape, though—one that excludes Trump, doesn?t fully encompass the meaning of the term, and trivializes victims.

The Daily Beastpublished an article last night critiquing Trump?s assertion regarding people of Mexican descent in light of the, until now, brushed-over skeleton in his own closet. The publication was careful in choosing its headline: ?Ex-Wife: Donald Trump Made Me Feel ‘Violated’ During Sex.?

Donald Trump Accused Of Hiring Actors To Attend Presidential Announcement

Originally posted on News One:

Presidential candidate Donald Trump is keeping his promise to create jobs, even if the job is to cheer him on at his campaign events.

The businessman allegedly took part in astroturfing, the act of paying people to attend a political event to create the image of natural supporters, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Actors were paid $50 for the less than three-hour event to sport t-shirts, signs, and show love for Trump, who announced his bid for the 2016 presidential race at the Trump Tower in New York Wednesday.

Trump workers were also accused of trying to lure bystanders into the building to attend the event.

An email from Extra Mile Casting was sent to background actors yesterday:

Hi there—

This is an event in support of Donald…

Adrianne Curry defends fawning over Obama ‘DM’: I was stoned, Twitchy sucks; Updated

Originally posted on Twitchy:

As Twitchy reported yesterday, very special snowflake Adrianne Curry couldn’t contain her glee over receiving very special spam from President Obama. The Obama campaign has resorted to using direct messages to solicit donations and whatnot, but for Adrianne, it was different. It was like he was talking only to her.

Today, she’s not feeling quite so lovey-dovey. You see, evidently, Adrianne was stoned at the time the DM graced her inbox, and when she sobered up and found out that Twitchy had written about her experience …

She was less than pleased that we had shined a spotlight on her utter vapidity:

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Yesterday, lefty talk show host Mike Signorile urged a gay Romney supporter — twice — to mix up a poison cocktail and off himself in order to avoid the slow death that would come with a Romney victory. Behold the tolerance:

Signorile’s comrade Dan Savage must be beaming.
