Analyzing Trump’s Attitude Towards Women after ‘Morning Joe’ Attacks

President Donald Trump - His unpopularity is leading to Democrats surge for 2018

Trump is at it again with his aggressive rants and complaints on Twitter.

This time as in many others before, he has targeted Mika Brzezinski, female co-host of MSNBC’s the ‘Morning Joe,’ using inappropriate language to reference her physical appearance. Here we find yet another instance of Trump showing his disrespect for women on social media.

On Thursday, in two separate tweets, Trump claimed that Brzezinski has a “low I.Q.” and also alleges that she was “bleeding badly from a facelift.”

Trump’s Twitter attacks are nothing new. This most recent instance reinforced Trump’s negative attitude and behavior towards women. Throughout his presidential campaign and up to now, Trump has been under a considerable amount of scrutiny for his inappropriate language towards women.

In an op-ed for the Washington Post,  Brzezinski and Scarborough delved into the growing concerns for the well-being of the United States and whether or not Trump is fit to be the POTUS. One main theme highlights Trump’s lack of respect towards women.

“It is disturbing that the president of the United States keeps up his unrelenting assault on women. From his menstruation musings about Megyn Kelly, to his fat-shaming treatment of a former Miss Universe, to his braggadocio claims about grabbing women’s genitalia, the 45th president is setting the poorest of standards for our children,” they wrote.

In 2015, this attitude surfaced on media platforms when Trump referenced Kelly’s menstruation cycles in an interview. After the first Republican primary debate, Trump claimed that Kelly questioned him forcefully due to her menstruation cycle.

“There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever,” said Trump in an interview with CNN.

Over time in what seemed like clockwork, reports became public as women began to speak out about Trump’s behavior in the workplace. In a report published by the New York Times, several women came forward to share unwanted sexual advances by the president.

“He kissed me directly on the lips. I thought: ‘Oh, my gosh. Gross,” said Temple Taggart, a 21-year old Miss Utah. “He was married to Marla Maples at the time. I think there were a few other girls that he kissed on the mouth. I was like, ‘Wow, that’s inappropriate.”

Over time, it has become commonplace to see Trump behave with outright disrespect towards women.

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.,) who typically declines comment concerning the president’s Twitter antics, publicly commented on Trump’s attack on Brzezinski.

“Obviously I don’t see that as an appropriate comment,” said Ryan. “What we’re trying to do around here is improve the civility and tone of the debate, and this obviously does not do that.”

In past events, Trump has also targeted female public figures such as Rosie O’Donnell, calling her “disgusting,” with a “fat, ugly face.” In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Trump also spoke about his one of his female opponents in the presidential race, Carly Fiorina.

“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?” said Trump. “Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?! I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

After all of these attacks, the question most Americans are asking is: When will enough be enough?

The rhetoric and language that Trump chooses when speaking about women is degrading and inappropriate. Though Brzezinski is the latest victim of these attacks, how many more of these insulting comments is he going to get away with?
