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

Quote of the Day
This weekend, the New York Times ran a story based on interviews with dozens of women who worked with and interacted with Donald Trump throughout his career. The aggregate portrait is unmistakably skeevy. Here's Trump making Miss USA contestants line up and watch as he personally ranks which women are hottest. Here's Trump only wanting the good-looking women in his office to take lunch orders in meetings. Here's Trump waving around a copy of the New York Post in which Melania boasted that Trump was the best sex she'd ever had. Here's Trump groping a woman during a business meeting. It's like reading a script from "Mad Men," except the events are real and took place in the 1990s, not in the 1960s. Part of the dramatic appeal of "Mad Men" was the contrast with how far we've come since. Donald Trump, it would appear, didn't get the memo.
