The latest scandal du jour the disgustingly dishonest “mainstream media” are attempting to hang on the Trump administration involves a now-departed staffer whom few outside of the White House had ever heard of before this week.
His name is Rob Porter, and according to credible reports, he is a serial wife abuser.
Reports last week based on interviews with former wives Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby noted that Porter, formerly the White House Staff Secretary for President Donald J. Trump, repeatedly physically abused both of them, even giving Holderness a black eye during one incident.
The “scandal” is this: Apparently, the FBI gave the Trump White House four separate warnings about Porter’s abusive tendencies towards his wives — not all women, just them — but the Trump administration, according to the media hype, ‘callously refused to do anything about him because hey, we all know Trump and Republicans hate women.’
The fire was further fanned by Trump himself when he appeared to defend Porter by pointing out that his ex-White House staffer “said very strongly…he’s innocent.”
The same disgustingly dishonest presstitutes are also going after one of the most honorable men to have ever served an administration — former Marine general and current Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly for allegedly doing ‘too little’ to get rid of Porter. Four FBI warnings, they say, should have been enough, and anyway, never forget, ‘Trump and Republicans hate women and this just proves it…again.’
Well, without defending the indefensible, there are explanations for why Porter was still given a temporary security clearance, why he remained on the job until the scandal story broke, and why the president and Kelly have expressed confidence in him — most of which has to do with the fact that he was very good at his job. What is less clear is why his two ex-wives waited until now to tell their stories.
What is also less clear is how the disgustingly dishonest fakestream media can claim with straight faces that Republicans and Trump are the worst abusers of women as their favorite Democratic supporter and donor Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein faces sexual assault charges in California, as well as criminal sexual assault investigations in New York and London. Surely the media hacks pretending like the Porter scandal is “the one that will finally bring Trump and Republicans down” haven’t forgotten about their favorite liberal-progressive serial abuser of women, right?
Or all the other Left-wing entertainment, media and elected figures who have sexually abused women — right?
Then, of course, the most famous elected Democratic abuser (and accused rapist) of women is former President Bill Clinton, who has been accused of sexual assault, rape, and lying under oath to Congress about his sexual acts with former White House intern Monica Lewinski, a fib for which he was eventually impeached by the House. At the time, Hollywood lined up to defend Clinton — not because he’s a great guy but because Hollywood has its own sexual assault problems, obviously. (Related: Four NEW women accuse Bill Clinton of sex assault.)
In May 2016, actor Elijah Wood, star of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, said Hollywood was rife with child sexual abuse. In an interview with the UK’s Sunday Times, he said that he was protected from the abuse while growing up, but other child actors were regularly “preyed upon” at parties by leading industry figures.
In response to the allegations against Weinstein, James Gunn, director of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” said he has many female friends who have often talked about being sexually harassed in Hollywood as they pursued acting careers.
And let’s not forget newly-minted civilian former Sen. Al Franken, who was photographed doing exactly the same thing to a woman as Trump and Republicans are accused of doing (minus the photographic evidence, of course).
If there is a political affiliation whose followers are more abusive towards women, that would be the Democratic Party. Never forget it.
