The fact the Donald Trump doesn’t regret his comments about Megyn Kelly is mind-blowing — because any self-respecting person would be embarrassed for having told such a stupid joke in front of the entire country.
Even if you think it wasn’t sexist, even if you consider him some kind of hero waging a war on political correctness, there’s still one thing you can’t deny: The joke was dumb. It’s the exact kind of thing you’d hear at open-mic night at a bar, except at least most of those guys have the sense to feel humiliated once they realize no one’s laughing.
Trump is not a hero to be praised. Trump is not an enemy to be feared. Trump is a hack in a trucker hat.
Think about it. There are hundreds of think-pieces on a remark that’s about as worthy of thoughtful consideration as anything written in Internet comments sections by a loser living in his mom’s basement.
Having any kind of emotionally charged response to such a juvenile comment just pumps up Trump’s already inflated sense of self-importance. I’m a woman, and although Trump’s comment was clearly sexist, it just wasn’t creative enough for me to waste any time or energy getting upset about it.
