pence to the rescue

Stuck on the nature of Donald Trump’s twitter insult at Senator Kristen Gillibrand.

someone who would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them)

I suppose “would do anything for them” is an allusion to prostitution.  Gendered, perhaps, as we think of sex workers as females as a matter of course (or gay male), but it also strikes me that it is an insult that would be leveled at a male politician.  (Politician = Prostitute, and no offense to sex workers.)  And one I presume the next Democratic gubernatorial candidate of, oh, say, Montana (ie: somewhere without any strong Berkley-ish influence)  might decide to employ.  So, would we be demanding now that the insult be shaved over to the male gender or eliminated altogether?

Of course, it really isn’t presidential to spend time insulting on twitter, but as we know… this president plays by his own rules.

Meanwhile, in ponderance of the thought on Senator Al Franken’s ouster — I don’t know… in future dealings that fall somewhere short of Weinsteinian proportions, and — for you Democrats out there, opens up a Senate race in 2018 for the Republicans to partake right at the edge of the Trumpian “blue collar white” rust belt rally…

Mock it all you want in terms of the gender dynamics, but… Can’t we install the Mark Pence Rule?
