The hypothetical of the moment goes as follows: what if Hillary Clinton were the candidate grabbing opposite-sex colleagues without their consent? What if men, rather than women, were being objectified and drooled over during the presidential election?
So, uh, Trump. As should not come as any surprise, but somehow kind of does, Donald’s “locker room” talk about non-consensually grabbing women’s genitalia was not, as he’d claimed during the second presidential debate, merely “words.”
One of the creepiest aspects of the second presidential debate was the way Trump seemed, from his body language, almost to be stalking Hillary Clinton. When she moved to one side, he followed. He stood behind her, often with very little distance between them, silent, frowning, looking like he was growling. Body language expert Janine Driver called his movements a pre-assault indicator and said that she was getting “really nervous” for Hillary because he was “like a dog starting to get anxious.” Screenwriter Adrienne Parks wrote in Huffington Post that this was a kind of “upstaging,” where he was trying to seize power and divert attention away from her and back to him. “This was infuriating to all of us who have ever been forced to stand our ground on the rigged white male playing field”, she wrote. “I felt the unfairness of it to the bone. This was live televised assault and battery with intent to maim, politically rape, and kill.”
