Trump told a NY Times female reporter, “You are a disgusting human being”

When Megan Twohey of the NY Times questioned Donald Trump about the women who accused him of improper physical conduct, Mr. Trump called her a “Disgusting human being”, not because she is a reporter but because she is a woman. Mr. Trump’s personal attacks on Megan Twohey and other women epitomize the actions of a man with affluenza. From a sociological perspective, I question whether Donald Trump is solely to blame, or is our society that governs this behavior and excuses it as “normal” behavior, a major contributor? Unfortunately, women still fear retribution for reporting unwanted sexual advances, which is why it is even more important as a society to strive for transformative change in traditional thinking and beliefs about women.
