Trump World Grab-Bag--A Collection

Radical cleric Pat Robertson is incoherent. But you knew that.

The Far Left is....livid?  They want to....kill babies? Lesbians! Planned Parenthood!

It's a little like Robertson just read off a sheet from a round of Right-Wing Talking Point Mad Libs. (Adjective, verb, plural noun, get the idea.)*

I'm still working out how I know lesbians with kids if they can't have babies, and how abortions are anything but an individual choice. (Has anyone ever gone into the clinic, asked about an abortion, and really said, "Honestly, I'd have it, but you know, the lesbians make me feel like maybe I'll just adopt a small dog instead"?)  It's kind of funny in a funny/sad way that Robertson equates women's power solely with our ability to sometimes produce offspring.  (Anyone want to volunteer to explain straight privilege or childless by choice to the clueless fellow?)  Wow.

Pat Robertson is officially as relevant to our culture as ballet flats to a conger eel.

*So everyone can experience the cluelessness:

Meeuwsen: There are lots of government-funded agencies in this country. Why do you think the President picked that one above all else to say, ‘not one penny’.

Robertson: Well it’s the left; it’s this culture of death. The far-left is livid about killing babies. They want to kill do this, they want to destroy. You go back, and I don’t want to play all this psychological stuff but nevertheless, if a woman is a lesbian, what advantage does she have over a married woman? Or what deficiency does she have?

Meeuwsen: Well she can’t have children

Robertson: That’s exactly right. And so if these married women don’t have children, if they abort their babies, then that kind of puts them on a level playing field. And you say, nobody’s there to express that? Isn’t that shocking, well think about it a little bit ladies and gentlemen.

I have to give bonus points for not having kids as a "deficiency". Or, the Freudian: "what advantage does she have", because honestly--a woman wouldn't actually worry about a late period quite the same way if she's been with her girlfriend that she would if she's been with a guyfriend. The whole scenario is totally birth-controlled. Which kind of is an advantage. True story.
