How many of Trump´s French-first-
lady´s-´shape´ critics are 60ish women?

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 7/17/2017 10:00:16 AM

Over in tweetville, there seems to be a building Twitter-storm over something that occurred four days ago - President Trump´s compliments to France´s first lady, Brigitte Macron, on her figure. "You´re in such good shape. She´s in such good physical shape. Beautiful," Trump told the French President´s wife, who was standing next to first lady Melania Trump. They are yelling sexism, claiming sex-harassment, bellowing about commodification, claiming looks-ism -- all for the pretty innocuous remark. The president didn´t comment on her boob size, her rear end shape, what he´d like to do, what he thinks her sexual history might be, or anything

did they gang up on Himself when he snuggled up for a selfie w/ the Swedish minister at Mandela´s funeral while Michelle fumed at his side? now THAT was inappropriate - at a funeral no less.

No need to insult "60-ish" women to make the point. More likely, it is the militant feminists of all ages and, of course, Trump-hating liberals who are critics of Trump´s compliment to Ms. Macron. I can´t speak for all women, but compliments are always welcome for me!

Are these the same critics that pointed out Michelles toned arms every chance they got?
Or how in shape the Wookie was? How fabulous her wardrobe?
These same people criticize a compliment to a woman over 60? Let´s just say, I have worked very hard to get back into a shape other than round, I would love acknowledgement of my hard work.

As a former Creative Director for a large AAAA agency, I would never have approved an ad with a message that was certain to alienate half of the client´s target audience. How can this Reebok ad be good for business?

#4, I am going to picture you as looking fabulous! You get that for your hard work. I used to be super thin and now I have rounded out, all in the wrong places. There was a time when I would have cared, now I don´t give a flying flip. With me what you see is what you get. I quit smoking cold turkey after 45 years only to find the shortest route to the kitchen.
I enjoy a compliment too. I think it is mostly a friendly way of saying ´how are you? I´m glad to meet/see you.´ Everyone says it in a different way, even POTUS.
I bet our POTUS didn´t offer Mrs. Macron a cigar!

After seeing that absurdly pc Reebok "response," I am so glad I´ve never bought Reebok shoes.

Yes, Trump´s remark may have been a bit awkward. But I doubt Mrs Macron was offended; agree with the author that more likely she was secretly delighted at the compliment (which I believe I´m allowed to say, being a 6oish woman myself).

Well - it wasn´t the ideal thing to say. He might as well have told her she was looking awfully spry.

But with serious jet lag after being in the air for so long and so many times recently - he can be forgiven. He meant well and at least was being honest and complimentary.

Well, you can flame me all you want but I would be offended---just as I was when he said unjustified, uncalled for, disgusting things to Carly Fiorina. The problem is, it ages him. He´s living in the past in a time when a guy in the office could say, "Hey, baby, you´ve got a sweet fill-in-the-blank" and a woman was supposed to be thrilled with the comment.
"You´re in great shape..." for WHAT? For your age? For being an older woman? For being a woman? This type of comment is patronizing; always has been, always will be. Who is HE to judge? Who asked his opinion?
For those making excuses for his cheap behavior, let me pose the following question:
Would you excuse and praise the spouse of another world leader if she told Trump, "You´re NOT in good shape"...and would you brush it off as just being "honest?"

You go #4!!!

And I don´t know what you could say to Mme Macron, Frankly, I find her quite unattractive (wouldn´t say it at any other time, though). She isn´t very pretty and her fashion sense is scary.

The harlequin thing she was wearing last week was just one of her fashion mistakes. She has worse taste than Michelle Obama. (He might just have been frightened by what she was wearing..he IS married to Melania, after all.

But she has a great figure. I´d just be gracious and say "Merci" if Trump noticed my hard work (which it is). She obviously works on her figure, so he paid her a compliment -maybe not how I would, but he was trying to be nice.

Leave it to the libbie snowflakes to complain. Like they have the market cornered on good taste and gracious behavior...yeah.

The media-driven health & fitness craze has bombarded the world for the past few decades. As a result, there are now work-out gyms throughout this country where, ´shape,´ is everything. In light of that fad, Pres. Trumps´ compliment for the French First Lady was entirely appropriate. ...Just another, ´sign of the times.´

Sidebar: That same media ignores reporting the numbers of injuries incurred due to related accidents, improper exercise & related exercise equipment.

Rush was talking about this, I was shaking my head at the foolish stuff that people, and mostly women, it would seem, get cranked up about. Can´t compliment her? OK, Wow. This anti-PC man still compliments women when they look nice.

A female caller commented that it would have been OK if he had said "Melania and I think you are in great shape." but not OK for him to say it without bring her into it. When questioned, she said, "Well, it sounds like a come on."
I punched the off button at that point, my insanity sensor was pegged and starting to overheat, plus I needed a break from the craziness.

Wow, some people are just entirely nuts. I am glad that the women in my life are not like some of these loons.

Only the idiots on the left could take a complement, and perceive it to be an insult. Everyone is obsessed with their body, eating the right foods, going to the gym, but if you mention how good they look, you have committed a PC violation.

Clinton Scandal Only Deepens —
So Why Is Trump, Not Hillary,

Posted By: RockyTCB- 7/21/2017 6:55:02     Post Reply
Corruption: Amid the trivial fault-finding by the media of President Trump´s every move, it´s important to note that the very same pundits who now rip Trump have completely ignored the growing scandal of Hillary Clinton´s pay-for-play tenure as secretary of state. It´s reasonable to wonder why no charges have yet been filed, yet the media, blinded by their Trump hatred, seem strangely incurious. The legal investigative think tank Judicial Watch recently released 448 pages of documents that it dug up from the U.S. State Department, the fruit of months of Freedom of Information Act requests and document-digging. The documents are damning,

Good Government: This week, the White House announced that the Trump administration had put the brakes on new regulations. A report found that Congress has been the least productive in more than 100 years. And the jobs and incomes picture took a turn for the better. Could these somehow be related? Much as they don´t like taxes and red tape, businesses hate uncertainty more. It makes planning hard and inhibits risk-taking. The problem is that an activist government produces lots of additional uncertainty. President Obama´s endless attempts to goose the economy with Keynesian-style gimmicks (like the worse-than-useless "Cash for Clunkers") while also

Nuclear Threat: President Trump has imposed a new bunch of economic sanctions on Iran for its misbehavior, including continuing its military nuclear program and its ongoing acts to destabilize and dominate the Mideast. Good move. We hope it´s a first step toward withdrawing from a bad nuclear deal and undoing the damage that President Obama did by lifting sanctions on Tehran. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, 16 entities and individuals have been sanctioned for aiding "illicit Iranian actors or transnational criminal activity."

What Should The GOP Do Next On Health Reform?
How About Following Hillary Clinton´s Lead

Once the GOP gets tired of the circular firing squad over its failure to pass an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, it might want to take a look at how Hillary Clinton handled a similarly embarrassing health care disaster during her husband´s presidency. Despite the fact that Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House in 1993, Clinton couldn´t even get her "Health Security Act" to the floor of the Senate. The main reason for her failure — aside from her political ineptitude — was a series of "Harry and Louise" ads put out by the insurance industry. In one of them,

Budget: The House Budget Committee´s new budget proposal makes a game and laudable attempt at bending down the spending curve and moving the U.S. toward a fairer, simpler tax system. But it already has rival plans within the GOP itself. The 10-year budget, which sketches out spending and taxing priorities from 2018 to 2027, makes a game effort at reducing spending, shrinking the welfare state, cutting regulation and restoring sanity to our tax code. It´s already being savaged by the media for its "draconian" cuts, which is a good sign. "The status quo is unsustainable," said GOP Rep. Diane Black, chair of

Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care

Or is he just batty enough to think he could run for public office again? Regardless of motive, he´s written a mess of phony claims, straw men, red herrings and projections in his jawbone bid to save Obamacare.

Numbers Game: The Senate Republican effort to repeal ObamaCare has faltered, making it the latest victim of a seriously flawed report saying it would have cost 22 million people their health insurance. The Congressional Budget Office, which has become the official scorekeeper of the impact of health reform despite its miserable track record, said that the Senate repeal-and-replace bill would leave 22 million more people uninsured by 2027 than if ObamaCare remained in place. Before that, it said the much different House repeal-and-replace bill would leave 23 million more without insurance. Heck, the CBO said that simply repealing ObamaCare without

The news only gets worse from there. The program´s unfunded liability over the next 75 years is now $12.5 trillion, which is up from $11.4 trillion last year and $4.7 trillion a decade ago.

The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe. The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe.

The threat of an expanding special counsel investigation into President Trump’s finances has rattled his conservative base with fears that the New York billionaire could be brought down by shady business deals — not collusion with Russia. Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller has widened the scope of the Russia investigation to include Mr. Trump’s business deals, according to a Bloomberg News report. The president had warned that such a move would cross a line. “Those transactions are in my view well beyond the mandate of the special counsel, are unrelated to the election of 2016 or any alleged collusion between the Trump

Today the White House touted the accomplishments of the administration in the first six months, and the list included: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.” Of course, the president’s not so focused on that part of Sessions’ record lately. As noted in the Jolt, Trump declared in an interview with the New York Times, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.” Tensions between a president and attorney general aren’t new

We just learned that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is in a battle against brain cancer. Yet, he´s not letting that stop him from still speaking his mind on foreign policy. Reports suggest that President Trump has ended a CIA program to arm and train anti-Assad rebels in Syria. The senator said that is unacceptable and used it to suggest the Trump administration has yet to offer a comprehensive plan on Syria. He also predicted that Russia will be huge fans of this development, since they want to see Bashar al-Assad remain in power.

If Sen. John McCain were to leave the Senate before his term ends in 2022, the governor would decide who fills the vacancy. McCain, who revealed Wednesday that he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, made no indication he intends to step away. "Further consultations with Senator McCain´s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate,” his office said in a statement. But were circumstances to require that McCain be replaced, that person would have to be a Republican, as McCain is, and would serve until the next general election, which happens every two years
