The other day my super politically reactionary cousin was defending Herr Drumpf as being a good example of a leader and gentleman.
I do my best to stay calm and level headed, so I asked what she thought about all the women who have come out and made statements about things that he has done to them? Most of the things he’s alleged to have done were unwanted harrassment.
But there were also quite a few women who attested that they were quite happy “Doing the Dude” for any number of reasons.
My cousin’s reaction?
“They are all lying. Women will do or say anything to get attention, especially at the expense of a famous man.”
This caught me by surprise. There have been, and still are, quite a few famous men that don’t have a dozen women chasing them around with sexual allegations.
There also have been, and still are, quite a few women who generally tell the truth.
There also have been, and still are, quite a few men who are well known to make a habit of preying on women.
Finally, there is absolute evidence that Der Drumpf has cheated on his previous wives, evidence that was presented in divorce court.
So what’s the deal with my cousin?
I figured it out the other day, and here’s an article that helps lead us in the right direction.
It must have happened to her.
The only way my cousin would discount ALL women as liars, is if she has to believe that ONE women in particular, is also a liar.
Who is that woman?
Someone who threatened to come between her and her husband.
In order to save her own peace of mind, my cousin had to consider that “other” woman as a liar. That means her husband was still faithful to herself, and that means that her marriage is sound.
It also means that my cousin has become the other other woman. For it is she who is fooling herself about a relationship that no longer exists.
It also means that, of all the other women out there who stand by His Hole-ness for all his alleged sexual exploits, there’s a chance they are reacting like my cousin for similar reasons.
Is it possible that there is such a large population of “other” other women?
What do you think?
