If a Republican/Conservative says something remotely negative or puts out a stereotype about someone’s sex or race, they are branded a sexist or racist with no forgiveness. If a Democrat/Liberal does the same – they misspoke, or that was in the past, and all is washed clean.
MSNBC Host Chris Matthews got caught on an open mic salivating over Donald Trump’s wife in an unprofessional way. I understand he’s a man, but while you are on your job, especially these days, you have to be aware of your surroundings.
“Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good,” Matthews could be heard saying. “I could watch that runway show.”
Watch the incident here:
Yes, Trump has said some outrageous things, but how many of the thousands he has employed through the years have come forward to say he is a racist, sexist, bigot, etc? It seems they don’t exist.
If Matthews were a Republican on Fox News saying this about a female, any female, he would have been fired, lynched by the liberal media, and probably drawn and quartered after being burned at the stake for saying this stuff. But because he is a hardcore Liberal working for ultra-Liberal MSNBC, he will get the usual “just boys being boys” pass that all Liberals get when they are idiots.
How about this? What would be the results if Matthews said that about Michelle Obama? All hell would break out. Chris would be called a racist misogynist. His job would be on the line, actually, perish that thought.
You’d sure think these folks would know when there’s a hot mic.
I’ve always felt the people who cry racist or sexist are the people who are the most hung up on sex or race. They think everyone else can only see sex and race because that is how they think. My wife has said she has had much worse dealings with other women being nasty or condescending in the workplace than any man. Yet women will talk about men being sexist pigs.
Doesn’t mean they don’t exist, but maybe it’s not as many as some would have you believe.
