Trump must apologize to women everywhere

Popularity 8Viewed 2672 times 2016-10-19 17:13 |System category:News| Trump, must, apologize, women, everywhere

Recently, the American public was disgusted and horrified by the despicable lewd and vulgar remarks about women which were made by Donald Trump.

 

The remarks were uttered during appearances on Access Hollywood and the Howard Stern Radio show. They were discovered by the Washington Post and CNN.

 

In the video clips and tapes, Trump indicated his desire to sleep with a married woman and his rights to make sexual advances to women given to him by his stardom status.

 

The remarks proved beyond any doubt his immaturity and his disrespect for women. They came from a man who should be an exemplary model for others, especially youngsters, to follow. They are issued by an individual who is seeking to occupy the highest office in one of the most powerful nations.

 

There are no logical explanations to justify Trump’s disgusting behavior. His unacceptable conduct led most of the prominent members of the Republican Party to withdraw their support of his candidacy. Several withdraw their endorsements and few explicitly expressed their views that he should drop out of the race and be replaced by Mike Pence.

 

Nevertheless, during the second presidential debate, he defiantly rejected their suggestion of him dropping out of the race and minimized the significance of the withdrawal of endorsements by important members of his party. Furthermore, he tried to deflect the issue by focusing on the infidelity of Bill Clinton.

 

Some may suggest that the incident is an American matter that concerns the citizens of the USA. However, his boorish behavior toward women is demeaning to women everywhere including the Chinese ladies.

 

Despite the outrage that followed the disclosure of the remarks, Trump issued a faint apology in which he attempted to justify his ludicrous and disgusting remarks by stating that they were spoken in locker room banter during private conversations long time ago.

 

He, also, attempted to redirect the wrath of anger toward Bill Clinton, the husband of his opponent by stating that Bill Clinton issued worse remarks during their golf games.

 

All leaders of our world, especially that of the USA, have moral responsibility to condemn the remarks and assure their female citizens that those remarks are issued by a man who has showed on several occasions that he lacks the maturity to appreciate and respect members of the gentle gender.

 

They should use their influence, with their native citizens who reside in the USA and have the right to vote, to insure that such a boorish and crude man will never hold a public office including the presidency of the USA.

 

Moreover, the USA should issue a sincere apology to women everywhere for being insulted by one of its citizens.

 

Women organizations worldwide must issue statements to express their horrific reactions to the remarks.

 

Citizens worldwide ought to boycott his television programs as a minimum punishment for his disrespect for women and treating them as sexual objects.

 

The media venues worldwide must condemn the remarks in order to instill assurances within their readers that such conduct is unacceptable and will not be tolerated regardless of the status or the nationality of the individual who commits such a conduct and behave in an undignified manner.

Finally, on behalf of the male gender or to be precise those who hold the ultimate respect for women worldwide, I apologize for having them being subjected to such despicable remarks.

 
As for Mr. Trump, he should acquire some humility and maturity to issue a sincere apology to women everywhere. In addition, he needs to alter his attitude toward members of the gentle gender before running for the presidency of the USA.

Trump never apologizes to anyone for anything, because in his own mind he never makes any mistakes and knows everything.

I consider this call for an "apology" from one election contender as hypocritical and misplaced. Why focus on one person's vulgarities which were uttered in PRIVATE and in the PAST but ignoring far worse traits in both the current presidential candidates, such as dishonesty, lusting after power, venality and membership in the U.S.A.'s top elite?

Mr Trump had no idea his comments were being recorded, and they happened at a time when he wasn't thinking of running for the presidency. Therefore a demand for an apology is ridiculous and bigotted.

Sava verbatim:
"...he needs to alter his attitude toward the members of the gentler gender before running for the president..."

I consider this downright sexist talk. What "gentler gender" (I can imagine, but isn't this stereotyping one gender at the expense of the other? And why should they be treated differently from the other gender?).

Of course, Mr Trump expressed himself crudely, vulgarly - but is he the worse contender than his rival?

Don't you think as a married man he has been through many a judgement before you added yours? He doesn't need the public's assessment of him; he has his wife and daughter's.

Honestly, I oppose Trump for his rabble-rousing tendencies and all Republicans because they are just servants of the wealthy. But this concentration on his (bad) attitude toward women simply avoids his main faults - which I think the average voter just doesn't really understand. What a stupid election!

President Rodrigo Duterte used more offensive language prior to being elected, saying he ‘should have been first’ in rape of Jacqueline Hamill.
Hi mealy-mouthed insincere 'apology' afterwards followed by his offensive comments about any number of people show his true colours as a head of state: a man playing to an uneducated (male) audience.
He, like many men who think themselves unassailable, shows himself for who he really is with such comments.

That's a paradox that he'll ever apologize to anyone. He's an arrogant individual. No respect for him
