Trump's "ignorance": "He was what he was. Twinkle in his eye, larceny in his soul. Everybody in his rich-guy social circle knew about his wide-ranging ignorance," Wolff wrote. Campaign aide Sam Nunberg reportedly attempted to explain the Constitution to him and got as far as the Fourth Amendment before Mr. Trump became bored. Disgraced Fox News chief Roger Ailes told him he needed a "son of a b****" as chief of staff, rather than his first preference, Kushner. Conway told him, "You can't just hire your children." Ailes suggested former House Speaker John Boehner. "Who's that?" asked Mr. Trump.

After a phone conversation with the president-elect on visas for high-skilled workers, in which Mr. Trump allegedly claimed that Silicon Valley companies could use his help after the unfavorable Obama years, Wolff says media mogul Rupert Murdoch told him, "Donald, for eight years these guys had Obama in their pocket. They practically ran the administration. They don't need your help." Mr. Trump apparently replied that they "really need these H-1B visas." Murdoch, according to Wolff hung up the phone and said, "What a f****** idiot."

"nuclear war" and "treason" are the words in the news, the president's team has begun to voraciously eat itself alive, and bill and hillary clinton's house is on fire.

How many very serious history books will now include the phrase "Kushner shit is greasy" thanks to this cluster fuck of a time period?

this is a very misleading tweet. he doesnt say that. what he says if what if you were a white woman and treated the same exact way. he is implying maybe not everything is racists and maybe people just treat women shitty. it is a valid argument

It's a valid question, but he answer is that there is no chance in hell that a white woman takes as much abuse as a black woman.

What he says is, if you want to see racism everywhere, then you will. And that people are obsessing over victimhood. He then uses one weird barometer to "prove" his point...that white women get harassed too. Which is not a measurably demonstrable example of similar experience across race at all.

That racism creates additional struggles for black women beyond what their counterparts experience is, in fact, not hard to prove. Also, it's kiiiiiind of evident in the fact that two white men felt comfortable going on television to share a story about how one of them scolded a black woman for thinking she has it rough.
