Trump’s Machismo

The 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump was the epitome of machismo toughness, talking about how he would “beat the shit out of ISIS,” would use more extreme torture than water boarding, make Mexico pay for a border wall and be a winner. He called Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly a lightweight bimbo (she is trained as a lawyer) and implied her tough questions were due to menstruation. He insulted other women like Carly Fiorina and Rosie O’Donnell for their appearance, saying he is against “political correctness.” He told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice that it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees, implying a sexual act. He even entered into a debate about the size of his hands and by implication genitals in a debate with Senator Marco Rubio.
