Donald Trump defends calling Stormy Daniels “Horseface.” Also claims to have “instinct for science.”

Does he even own a mirror?

Courtesy of HuffPo:

Trump, in an interview with three AP reporters, was asked about the backlash over his horseface put-down.

“Sir, as the president of the United States, is it appropriate to call a woman, and even one who is making serious allegations and who you are in litigation against, to call her a horseface?” one of the AP reporters asked.

“You know what? You can take it any way you want,” Trump answered. When the reporter asked how people should take it, Trump said:

“Did you see the letter? She put out a letter. I had nothing to do with her. So she can lie and she can do whatever she wants to do. She can hire a phony lawyer. You take a look at this guy, a stone-cold loser. Take a look at his past.”

(This letter he refers to by the way was the one that Daniels was coerced into writing so that Michael Cohen would not make her life “hell in many different ways.”)

The “loser” swipe was directed at Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who frequently trades insults with Trump on Twitter. Avenatti slammed Trump after the “horseface” tweet, calling him a “disgusting misogynist” and “an embarrassment to the United States.”

Keep in mind that this is the president of the United States attacking the appearance of the woman that he slept with, compared to his daughter, and then paid to keep her mouth shut about his tiny penis. 

If all of this was not enough to make you want to flee to Canada we also have Trump explaining his particular brand of genius about science. 

Courtesy of CBS News:

Despite the president’s protestations, there is little dispute among climate scientists around the world, who warn that climate change could be nearing a point where trends cannot be reversed. Earlier this month, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a major report warning that the planet would face catastrophe in the near future if the phenomenon is not addressed.

When the AP brought up the consensus of scientists, however, the president responded by saying that other scientists agreed with him.

“No, no. Some say that and some say differently,” Mr. Trump said. “I mean, you have scientists on both sides of it. My uncle was a great professor at MIT for many years, Dr. John Trump. And I didn’t talk to him about this particular subject, but I have a natural instinct for science, and I will say that you have scientists on both sides of the picture.”

“I have a natural instinct for science” is one of the least scientific phrases I have ever heard. 

Science is based on cold hard facts, not intuition or “instinct.” 

Trump is just the latest in a line of science-denying Republicans who are stubbornly resisting the acknowledgment of facts that could save this planet from disaster. 

Perhaps if he were a little more educated he would not refer to women as “horseface.”

    “One Event at Trump’s D.C. Hotel Includes a $10,000-Per-Person Photo With the President Opportunity”
    “A PAC run by Vice President Mike Pence and GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who is running to become the next Speaker of the House, has spent over $225,000 at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., including $7500 at Trump’s Bedminster golf course, which goes to the D.C. hotel.”
    “Fast Company names these politicians: Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisc.); Reps. Tom Reed (R–NY), Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.), Lee Zeldin (R-NY), and Republican John James, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Michigan, as having received endorsements after spending money at a Trump property.

    On Monday, James was forced to apologize after a Nazi swastika was found in footage of his campaign ad. He claims it was a mistake. Some Democratic strategists say that’s impossible. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted out an endorsement for James.

    Also on the list is Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY), whose PAC spent a mere $292 at Trump’s D.C. hotel.

    But wait, there’s more.

    Next week President Trump will headline a fundraiser at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. for New Jersey Republican assemblyman Jay Webber, who is running for Congress. “The October 25 event seeking hard money contributions, includes a $20,000-per-person roundtable with Trump and a photo with the president for $10,000-per-person,”
    the New Jersey Globe reports today.”

      Republican John James, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Michigan, as having received endorsements after spending money at a Trump property.

      =======================
      They just had the debate between Debbie Stabenow and know nothing James. Clearly he has no policies other than to support trump 2000%. I checked out his campaign site and besides declaring he is a right to lifer and runs his family business, his only platform seems to be he flew a helicopter in the Iraq war.

      Also Donnie Jr has shown up to campaign for him.

      I shutter to think what will happen in MI if this token black republican gets elected because he did not answer any of the questions of what he will do for MI. Bad enough trump wants to kill off the Great Lakes, we don’t need a senator to help him.

        Debbie Stabenow has been a great senator for Michigan. She’s not the kind of person to dominate the airwaves but she has worked hard and steadfastly for Michigan’s industries, farmers and for the preservation of the Great Lakes (our state borders Lakes Erie, Huron, Saginaw and Michigan). I sure hope that Michigan’s African American population recognizes how hard she has worked on their behalf and on the behalf of the entire population. This James guy is a creation of the Koch Brothers and the far right. Like Clarence Thomas, he should be ashamed of himself for cozying up to them.

    Don the Con has an “instinct for science”! If he has an “instinct for science,” then I’ve won three or four Nobel prizes for chemistry, biophysics and mathematics. Actually, I hated chemistry because I was afraid of breaking a beaker in lab or blowing up the classroom and I was never good at mathematics, only at plain geometry because it made, for some reason, sense to me.

    If he’s “got an instinct for science” I would hope at some time a reporter might ask him to describe the steps in the scientific process.

    I have a natural instinct for LYING and SCAMMING, there I fixed it for him.

    Also you don’t inherit your skills for a certain profession. So he just proved he knows nothing about science.

    OT/FYI
    “The 39th president called Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the highest court in the land “a very serious mistake” while speaking to a civil rights class”
    ““Whether or not [Kavanaugh] attempted to rape a woman … I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing,” Carter can be heard telling the students in a video posted to Facebook. think he did attack her sexually and I know that I saw him lose his cool.”

    “Science is based on cold hard facts, not intuition or “instinct.””

    Wrong.

    There are no cold hard facts in scientific hypothesis. You should have learned that in high school.
