Donald Trump and the war on women - begins with beauty at home

Washington Post Politics

Melania Trump is a Slovene-American jewelry and watch designer and former model. She is married to American billionaire real estate developer and 2016 U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump. She was born April 26, 1970. Personally, although Melania is obviously gorgeous, she is the problem women have with Donald Trump.  In fact, women can't see themselves in her charisma.  She's too beautiful, too Slovakian and too Trumponian. It's not like women look at her and say, "Yes, that's who I want to be like."  Rather, they say something else, and it's not very nice.

Donald Trump can’t stop saying nasty things about women. 
It could cost him. (Ya think? Hello?)

"You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs' and 'disgusting animals.' ..."

"Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women's looks. You once told a contestant on 'Celebrity Apprentice' it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees."

"Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who was likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?"

Now, a nasty new feud escalated Thursday between Donald Trump and his chief Republican rival "Cruz to loose" over their wives. This regressive dialogue set off a new wave of alarms among establishment Republicans, who fear that the GOP front-runner "Trump the Chump" would drive away female voters in a general-election fight with likely Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. (Although pollsters are finding women seem less than enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton as our president, they find Donald Trump "the chump" even more distasteful. Of course, Mrs. Clinton's leadership experience is certainly self evident, as well.)

Trump’s gender problem flared again this week as he and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas traded insults while Cruz’s wife, Heidi, became the target of vitriol on social media from Trump and his supporters. 

At one point, the real estate mogul retweeted an unflattering image contrasting Heidi Cruz’s appearance with his wife, Melania, a retired model.

“The images are worth a thousand words,” read the caption on the photo that Trump tweeted to his 7.2 million followers.

Obviously, political wives must have a sense of competition and ambition for them to stay in the spotlight, while their husbands are usually being maligned by the public and media. Certainly, Heidi Cruz seems to made of the "right stuff" but not entirely sure about Melania Trump.  Although she's a bona fide beauty, her life has been surrounded by adoring fans who admire her physical attractions. I doubt Melania is accustomed to the intense ridicule her billionaire husband Donald Trump is now exposed to as a result of his new "reality show", where he wants to be elected leader of the free world.  

Meanwhile, as Donald Trump sees endless reruns of the Megyn Kelly question of the year, "You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs' and 'disgusting animals.' ..", his credibility is running in an inverse correlation with the exposure of this debate exchange. Moreover, it's being reinforced by the ugly exchange with Senator Cruz about his wife, Heidi- a meaningless dialogue that makes no sense.  

It doesn't take a political rocket scientist to see how Donald Trump has a Trumponian problem with women that's only going to get worse. Here's my one woman opinion: Trump should pull out of the GOP presidential nomination race before his narcissistic nihilism takes down yet another of his failed line of businesses and his wife's jewelry brand, along with him.
