Michelle Obama issued a powerful rebuke of Donald Trump on Thursday, calling on men and women alike to reject his "intolerable" misogyny and his boasting about being able to sexually assault women because he is famous.
"Too many are treating this as just another day's headline, as if our outrage is overblown or unwarranted, as if this is normal — just politics as usual," the first lady said during a rally in New Hampshire, referring to Trump's 2005 words of being about to grab women "by the pussy" and kiss them against their will. "But New Hampshire, let's be clear, this is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This is disgraceful. It is intolerable — it doesn't matter what party you belong to, no woman deserves to be treated this way."
I am not a fan of Republican policy proposals, but Trump goes beyond politics. He's the grotesque boss we have all had, the child in adult's clothes, the man who would say anything to get the "prize" he wants. He's an embarassment to us all that he is even on the ballot.
