In the aftermath of Thursday’s Republican debate, I have just one question: Why are we still putting up with this nonsense?
Seriously. Watching the whole thing was a lot like being Will Ferrell in “Zoolander” — like taking crazy pills. But while there were plenty of WTF moments in the debate — remember Huckabee’s digression about pimps and prostitutes? — it was inevitably Donald Trump’s night to shine. And by shine, I mean be a complete turd.
He really went the full Donald throughout the event, but there was one moment in particular that really encapsulated both the man and our whole wider sorry current state of affairs. It was when Megyn Kelly observed to him, “You call women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.'” Trump was quick to fire back, “Only Rosie O’Donnell” — the former cohost of “The View” whom Trump has indeed referred to as “a real loser… my nice, fat little Rosie,” and complained about having “that fat, ugly face.” The audience, in response, cheered, laughed and applauded.
