-- Sally Kohn, "Trump maxing out his 'man card'"

Quote of the Day
Make no mistake about it, a substantial portion of the American public is supporting Donald Trump -- some implicitly, others explicitly -- because he is a man. More precisely, Trump's version of misogynist machismo matches theirs. Think of this reactionary backlash as a vintage fad in American politics: certain voters longing for the days of crew cuts, flagrant racial oppression and unimpeded sexual harassment. In their minds, the good old days. This mindset is quickly going out of fashion but some stubbornly cling to the past.
