Donald Trump is a piece of shit who does not value women at all. He is an admitted serial sexual assaulter who was elected because America is filled with garbage like him who also do not value women (yes, even the women who voted for him are misogynists). And while some might expect that he’d have left his sexist baggage at the door of the White House, that has not happened. In fact, he reportedly had a conversation about justices on the Supreme Court that focused on their looks and health.
According to Axios, Trump had a private conversation with sources who claimed he said he’d be appointing four justices to the highest court during his first term. When asked who the four were, the president named Scalia who he’s already replaced and Anthony Kennedy because there are rumors he wants to retire:
Ok,” one source told Trump, “so that’s two. Who are the others?”
“Ginsburg,” Trump replied. “What does she weigh? 60 pounds?”
“Who’s the fourth?” the source asked.
“Sotomayor,” Trump said, referring to the relatively recently-appointed Obama justice, whose name is rarely, if ever, mentioned in speculation about the next justice to be replaced. “Her health,” Trump explained. “No good. Diabetes.
Apparently he thinks Justice Ginsburg’s weight impacts her ability to serve. RBG is 5’1″ and her weight is perfectly healthy (it’s not 60 pounds), unlike the dumbass president who is constantly shoving fast food in the hole in his face. He has a way higher chance of falling down dead from an unhealthy lifestyle. And the crack about Sotomayor’s diabetes proves he is a fucking moron.
Type 1 diabetes is dangerous, but it is also manageable with proper medical care and a healthy lifestyle. Justice Sotomayor has said that she pays attention to her body and regularly monitors her blood sugar. IMore than 3 million Americans live with type 1 diabetes and many of those are children. Instead of reassuring these Americans that he will do everything he can to make sure they have the best healthcare available to them, he is sabotaging the Affordable Care Act and making jokes about a Supreme Court justice dying. Despicable.
