No pressure, no diamonds

July 24th, 2020 – The Lincoln Project today released a new video, “Maxwell 2,” contrasting the way President Trump speaks about women that call him to task with his recent sympathies for accused child sex trafficker Ghislane Maxwell.

Coming on the heels of misogynistic comments made by a Republican House Representative, the video serves as a reminder of the way President Trump’s shameful rhetoric towards women has permeated the Republican party.

“President Trump has repeatedly shown disrespect towards women, but he often voices a particular disdain for those in leadership roles,” said Sarah Lenti, Executive Director of The Lincoln Project. She added, “It’s reprehensible that the one woman he is able to muster some compassion for is the alleged leader of a child sexual abuse operation.”

As the President continues to reserve his respect for women to a select few, the majority will lead the charge for his removal in November.
