Michael Savage Shows His Misogyny. Again.

Michael Savage Shows His Misogyny. Again. April 12, 2018

Trump sycophant Michael Savage is once again putting his rank misogyny on display with an attack on Stormy Daniels. She is, according to him, a “low-life slut.” Not a word about his buddy Trump, of course, who has had a string of mistresses and cheated on every wife he ever had.

MICHAEL SAVAGE (HOST): Irrespective of whether [Michael] Cohen paid off some low-life slut who may have slept with the president — that is not a crime by the way, as you’ll hear from my defense attorney. It’s not a crime to pay anyone hush money, I don’t know if you know that. There was no crime here. So what are they trying to do? They’re trying to investigate Cohen’s emails — everything they can find, emails, you name it, phone records — to try to get something else. That’s a smoke screen, the Smoky Daniels. If they can find something else that implicates someone in Trump’s family in some business dealing that may have been a little offbeat — off the beam, or a tax thing that Cohen — I’m saying “if” now. Anything that he can get his hands on. What they will do is indict that family member, and try to destroy the family member. And once they have that family member in the vice, if they get that far, through Cohen’s private correspondence, what they will do is they will present Trump with a very Machiavellian decision, rock and a hard place, either step down with honor or we’ll put your X in jail, meaning the relative. That’s what I think is going on here.

So if she sleeps with a lot of men, she’s a slut. But if he sleeps with a lot of “sluts,” he’s….what? Not a slut, obviously. He shows not the slightest hint of recognizing the hypocrisy of what he said and that’s because he thinks women should be held to a different standard than men. It’s because he’s a sexist, plain and simple. Men get to determine their own sexuality and they get to determine the sexuality of women too, in his world. And if a woman dares to use her body in an unapproved way, he will demean and dehumanize her.

But it’s more than that. I have no doubt that Savage thinks that Trump is a super extra special manly man because he’s slept with a lot of women, but the women he slept with are clearly low-life sluts. I’m not sure who those extra virile guys are supposed to be having sex with, then, do you?
