Those looking for evidence that President Donald Trump's misogynistic attitudes and tone have effectively penetrated cultural needs seek no further than the conservative leadership conference in Washington on Tuesday
where Attorney General Jeff Sessions reiterated a group of high school students from "Locks they ", the bullying mantra of the Trump campaign against Hillary Clinton, his opponent of 201
While President Trump's legal (and other) problems continue to increase – and sessions have some of his own problems – that's hard to believe or any member of the administration would so energetically continue to sound a parole-cry that has proved worthy. Of course, Clinton was cleared up. And ironically, Trump's administration and campaign are now being investigated.
But this is not a management that recognizes irony. Their livelihood depends on selling something to the American public that they consider justified Clinton's loss and Trump's victory. And the fact that a group of conservative high school students started the song proves that the Trump rhetoric worked. Not only the current voters but also some of the future have adopted and accepted the President's evil habits of bullying, misogyny and lies.
The message? The one who has the loudest, meanest, deepest voice wins. (And although Trump has more than once tweeted his regret over the choice of sessions and bitterly condemned him for refusing Russia probing, you can bet he tacitly approved the performance of the AG yesterday.)  But cursing Defeated female opponent (the first woman to get a major party nod to run for president as it happens) – and generally relying on misogynistic rhetoric – is not the best political move. Republicans can not count on enforcing them: Women's participation in political affairs is now at an all-time high, probably because they're fed up.
A Brookings Institute Report from January found this for the first time In American history, young women are more politically engaged than their male counterparts. A Gallup poll from 2018 also documented an increase in American dissatisfaction with women's position in society – 37% expressed dissatisfaction, compared to 26% in 2008. Trying with women does not seem the right way to go ,
But it has worked for Conservatives before, and many men before that, and so they'll probably keep going until it does not work. Is it worth it to be outraged that sessions make inspirational children laugh? Send the message that misogyny is acceptable and facts are not
It is – but it's not all that surprising. Trump is not a man, and this is not an administration that has arrived where it gets up or realizes facts. It's one in which gas lighting is just part of the daily schedule.
And in November we can show them that we do not have to stand up for it.
