CHICAGO, Feb. 29, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Revolted by the idea of a "President Porno
," among other reasons, more leading American women began openly revolting against Donald Trump's White House bid over the weekend ahead of March 1 GOP Presidential "Super Tuesday" contests in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and Wyoming.
They included Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard CEO who ripped Trump and his endorser of Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the candidate Whitman had been funding until Christie's recent exit from the race. "Donald Trump is unfit to be President," she said in part.
Donna Baer, Chicago-based author of Strong Happy Family: Unexpected Advice from an Ivy League Mom of Ten
, launched 21 million messages to churches, synagogues and Super Tuesday voting households with robo-calls and videos like this
. To about 100,000 pastors and rabbis she said, "we want you and your congregation to know all about Donald Trump's disgusting involvement in pornography, infidelity, vice… the degrading exploitation of girls and women…. marital cheating and misogyny."
Rebecca Hagelin, a Florida resident and former Heritage Foundation officer, wrote Sunday of "the King of Sleaze" Trump
who spewed filth on Howard Stern's show; of strippers, lap-dancers and porn at the Trump Taj Mahal casino; of Trump's personal attacks on Carly Fiorina as well as Megyn Kelly who, he said, had "blood coming out of her wherever"; of Trump's disdain for "flat-chested" women; of Trump's notorious adultery and promiscuity; of his almost-incestuous declared inclinations to date his own daughter (who has modeled revealingly); and of Trump's third wife Melania Knauss Trump "the would be First Lady [who] has her own record in pornography" and fully nude modeling. Both are easily accessed via search engines.
Without mentioning porn, Whitman's statement attacked Christie's naked cravenness, saying, "Chris Christie's endorsement of Donald Trump is an astonishing display of political opportunism. Donald Trump is unfit to be President. He is a dishonest demagogue who plays to our worst fears. Trump would take America on a dangerous journey. Christie knows all that and indicated as much many times publicly. The Governor is mistaken if he believes he can now count on my support, and I call on Christie's donors and supporters to reject the Governor and Donald Trump outright. I believe they will. For some of us, principle and country still matter."
Columnist Jennifer Rubin of The Washington Post wrote, "Trump's rise was enabled by many people just 'doing their jobs' -- the mainstream media, talk show hosts, backbenchers in Congress, etc. But none will be as morally culpable as Christie if Trump succeeds. Why? Because he knows better, and because the threat -- and it is a threat -- of Trump as commander in chief, or anyone else unfit for that job, was a central motivation for Christie's run."
Author Donna Baer
had similar criticism for ex-candidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, whose daughter and former campaign manager, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has become a Trump campaign advisor. Baer expects Huckabee, a former Southern Baptist minister, to endorse Trump ahead of Tuesday's voting in Arkansas and 12 other states. She said she is troubled that feminists, female journalists, her home-state governor Chris Christie, Huckabee and Evangelical leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr. are all "climbing into bed with a pornographer, cheat, strip-clubber and woman-degrading boor."
