Attention women who support the president: Standby for incoming. If you thought the Megyn Kelly Chronicle and subsequent “Trump is a Sexist” narrative was merciless during the campaign, this latest Mika Brzezinski face-lift flap is going to cause a DEFCON 2 response from the aging American feminists among us.
And that means you, my friends, will be in the line of fire.
In every good verbal conflagration, there seems to be one incident that ignites the inferno. Of course, this is promptly forgotten when words start flying like the pellet spray from a .12-gauge shotgun. Such is the case in the hullabaloo between boob-tube co-host Brzezinski and the President of the United States.
Co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Ms. Brzezinski has made no bones about the fact that she doesn’t think much of Donald Trump — and that’s putting it nicely. (I could hyperlink that last statement for you, but then we wouldn’t have any space left to write about the subject at hand.) Anyway, a couple of weeks ago Brzezinski unleashed a verbal assault on the president that put an exclamation point on her personal narrative:
Well, I think he’s such a narcissist. It is possible that he’s mentally ill and away. This is on the table. I said it months ago, and now everybody is starting to say it like it’s new and it’s ok. He’s not well. At the very least he’s not well and he’s so narcissistic he does not believe the rules apply to him.
Mika then went on to question the president’s sexuality. I’m not making this up — you can find that here. Naturally, President Trump responded in his typical counter-punch style, and a Twitter war ensued:
I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..

…to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

Unable to stop herself Mika tweeted the following in an apparent attempt to tweak the president regarding his sexuality:

Okay — time to remove Twitter from your children’s smartphones. One would think that would be quite enough, but leftist media outlets like The New York Times can’t restrain themselves and let the verbal inferno Peter out all by itself. The esteemed Gray Lady had to put her two cents in and run to the defense of the MSNBC co-host by broadening the scope of the nasty-grams into an all-out assault against women.
Yesterday Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman penned an article with the narrative that Trump’s comments were sexist. “Mr. Trump’s attack injected even more negativity in a capital marinating in partisanship and reminded weary Republicans of a political fact they would rather forget: Mr. Trump has a problem with half of the population more likely to vote,” opined The Times.
Really? Perhaps The Times reporters should read their own publication. In an article headlined “More White Women Voted for Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton,” they wrote, “…nearly twice as many white women without college degrees voted for Trump than for Hillary and of college educated women Hillary won by only a narrow margin – 51% supported Hillary to the 45% who supported Trump.”
So, can we accurately say the President has a problem with women who vote? That would be a definite no. And this may be because American women (no matter their level of education) are an intelligent bunch who vote on issues, not sexist commentary designed to feed their insecurities. Women in this country care about pertinent matters that affect their lives, businesses, and children — things like jobs, the cost of health care and public safety.
In fact, in the 21st century, an influx of women who vote in the U.S. do not necessarily identify with feminist issues and are more apt to vote as people rather than a political identity. This becomes evident when you dig into the election numbers. At some point, the leftist establishment media is going to have to look at the facts and stop running their collective mouths about a narrative that went out with the mini-skirt.
As Ms. Brzezinski powers up her smartphone poised to keystroke another invective with well-manicured gel-tips, she might want to think things through. The president is not likely to take her vituperation on the chin or with grace. That’s just not his style. He’s much more likely to keep hammering away until she shamefully crawls under the pew – facelift and all. It may not be a kind or gentle way of dealing with one’s critics, but it’s proven to work, and work well — for Mr. Trump.
Even his wife Melania, who was encouraged to join the fray of mean tweets was smart enough to stay out of the firestorm and perhaps even offer Mika some sound advice. “As the first lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder,” Mrs. Trump’s spokesman wrote in a statement.
If Ms. Brzezinski doesn’t want to take the advice of the president’s wife, she could also turn to another trusted source about what to do in such a time as this:
A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.
Proverbs 15:1 (NLT)
And that may, if fact, be the best advice of all for both parties.
