The presidential candidate is now claiming his sexist demeanor is all for ‘entertainment.’
In an interview with Las Vegas’ KSNV-TV, Donald Trump reassured anyone disturbed by his ongoing sexist behavior that it’s all a goof! “A lot of that was done for the purpose of entertainment. There’s nobody that has more respect for women than I do,” the probably-not millionaire said. Which, if anything, just shows that Trump has no idea how entertainment works.
So we’ve come up with a list of entertainers—even somewhat misogynistic ones!—who display more respect for women than Trump does.
1) Daniel Tosh
In 2012, Daniel Tosh was accused of making a gang-rape joke at a female audience member’s expense, which many saw as the natural extension of his already offensive brand of comedy. But hey, he apologized eventually! Something Donald Trump has never done.
2) Mike Lazzo
The creative director at Adult Swim said the channel has the lowest number of women in the writer’s room because “women don’t tend to like conflict, comedy often comes from conflict.” Adult Swim has also been criticized for launching a TV show aimed at the alt-right. On the other hand, Lazzo has never said women should be “punished” for having abortions, nor has he ever been in a position where he could have the power to institute any punishments. So, yay?
3) Scott Adams
The “Dilbert” creator often takes to his personal blog to rant, but his post “The Humiliation of the American Male in 2016” takes the cake for whining about reverse-sexism, culminating with “STOP TELLING ME IN YOUR MIND THAT WOMEN HAVE IT WORSE IN THIS COUNTRY THAN MEN!” But in the same post, Adams says he is voting for Clinton, and that she is “a strong role model for women and deserves massive credit for that.” Adams has also never shamed Miss Universe for gaining weight.
The rapper once said he couldn’t vote for a woman to be president because “women make rash decisions emotionally.” He, too, apologized, and also has never been close to a position to make it federal policy to pay working mothers less than men or childless women.
5) Ricky Gervais
Both Ricky Gervais and Donald Trump have victim-blamed victims of sexual crimes: Gervais for leaked nudes and Trump for rape in the military. But Gervais also gave us David Bowie singing “Little Fat Man,” which is more charming than any “entertainment” Trump has produced.
Um, hooray for Hollywood?
