Trump's Presstitutes Circle The Wagons Around Trump And Porter

Donald Trump's utter disregard for the beaten former wives (and girlfriend) of his former White House Secretary, Rob Porter, is spreading across the GOP like a runaway tax cut. We should have anticipated the strategy from Trump's presstitutes and surrogates following his own concern-free remarks in defense of Porter.
Trump's remarks: 
Well, we wish him well. He worked very hard. I found out about it recently, and I was surprised by it. But we certainly wish him well. 
bviously, tough time for him. He did a very good job when he was in the White House. And we hope he has a wonderful career, and hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him. But it was very sad when we heard about it. And, certainly, he’s also very sad. 
Now he also — as you probably know, he says he’s innocent, and I think you have to remember that. He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent. So you’ll have to talk to him about that. But we absolutely wish him well. Did a very good job while he was at the White House. 
Thank you very much everybody. Thank you.
Trump didn't speak one word about the women who reported Porter's past abuse.l not even the women with the now internationally viewed black eye.

It is time to explore a few surrogate and presstitute defense of "he/him" Porter. Watch as Ben Stein struggles with the illogical strategy to indirectly invalidate the reality of Porter laying a black eye on one of his wives. The video is eight minutes long, I encourage clicking-off the video after the first 2:38 minutes. Two minutes of embarrassing equivocation is not easy to watch.

Of course, Trump dispatched his seasoned presstitute to the airways for Sunday morning Trump rationalizing and implied defense of the wife beater Porter.


All said there were none who compared to the idiotic manifestation of a noted GOP /ENC talking head: Alex (I have a real tan better than Trump's makeup) Castellanos.  

Before the piece embed of the Crooks & Liars article with Castellanos, how about watching a few minutes of pure Fox News demagoguery which totally supports the perception of Fox News as Right Wing state TV. What follows is shameful.

ABC Panel Rips GOP Strategist For Saying Not To 'Stone' Men Accused Of Assault

Things didn't go so well for GOP strategist Alex Castellanos when he tried to make the men out to be victims during a discussion about accused wife-beater Rob Porter on ABC's This Week. STEPHANOPOULOS: Alex Castellanos, in this way the president is actually pretty transparent. What we saw in that Oval Office pool spray, what we…

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Punditry follows path of lies! (UPDATED)!!

On April 17th, 2012 ThinkProgress-ECONOMY honored Equal Pay Day by publishing a cogent article related to continuing differences in pay for men and women. The article also depicted via chart how women and certain minority groups lag behind white males' pay in a major way.

Writer  Annie-Rose Strasser  developed the themed article around the reality that women must work well into 2012 to equal the level of pay for their male coworkers (or males in the same or comparable jobs.  
 " ......the day that women completed the extra 3.5 months of work they needed in order to make an equal amount to what men earned in 2011." 
Strasser introduced the following chart by stating a less well-known act of facts about male/female pay inequity.
........ it’s not as well known that the pay gap is much worse for some women than others. For instance:

Women make less by industry: Women tend to work in lower-paying industries: 68 percent of jobs in education are held by women, as are 78 percent of health and social assistance jobs. But even within those industries where they are the vast majority of employees, women are paid significantly less than their male counterparts. This chart from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the percentage of men’s income that women make in given sectors. In some of the biggest industries for female employment, men still make significantly more:

Strasser further illustrates pay inequity as follows. Black and Latina women suffer inequity not shared by their white (female) counterparts.
