Donald Trump said some awful things in his Assess Hollywood Video from eleven years ago. Pretty gross things. He called himself a b****, going after a married woman. He said someone had some nice t***. And of course we all know, he used the "p word", that he could actually "grab em by the p****" because he was a star.
But none of those words were the most disturbing. We all know that people do say some of those words behind closed doors.
The most disturbing word he said in the whole transcript -- for me -- was the word".."it."
He said this when referring to an attractive woman he was about to meet. Billy Bush, his hang out mate for this latest disaster, had just made the comment, on seeing the woman from afar in the bus, "Uh yeah, those legs, all I can see is the legs."
And Trump's comment was, "oh, IT looks good".
"It" looks good. Not "she looks good," or, "she's beautiful," or "she's pretty", which alone was not the first thing a person should say about someone else, but nonetheless is somewhat understandable, as she was a Hollywood TV star. No, his reaction was, "IT looks good."
It. He didn't see an attractive woman there. He didn't see an attractive human being. What Donald J. Trump saw was an object in front of him. A thing, a toy, an object for him to play with, to fondle, to grope, to kiss, and hopefully for him, eventually to "f"".
I am not a psychologist, but it seems to be me these are the impulses not of a mature adult, but a teenager, or child, or maybe even an infant. Actually, it doesn't seem even to be a human instinct, it seems more of an animal one. An animal wants to devour something else for its own needs and pleasures, without empathy or thought for the other person or thing.
It. IT looks good. A normal person may say that about a new car, or truck, or maybe an instrument. "Man, that looks good," you say about some object you really like. Sometimes people even personify objects, making the object human. Some men call their car's "she", or some woman may give a male names to their cars.
But how many of you have ever called a person an IT. Even in the most street vernacular when we were teenagers in Jersey, we might have said, "man, she's fine," when an attractive girl walked by. (As an adult I wouldn't say that now, but I may think it). However, we never said IT was fine. As teenagers, we many have been aware of our hormonal impulses and were not ashamed to admit it when we saw an attractive woman. But even in those immature, adolescent days, we never called a women or even a man we didn't like, IT.
"It" symbolizes everything we need to know about Donald Trump. Calling someone IT signifies that a person does not even acknowledge that another person who we share this planet with, is really a human being, an animal, or even a living thing, like a plant. "It" signifies something is just a thing, an anything, a nothing. IT is a piece of metal, or wood, or glass, not a human being.
It all makes sense, now. IT is not too far from THEM. It started with the Birther thing and Obama. He was not "one of us." He was a THEM. By not being a white American, Obama did not deserve the respect and treatment of not just being the President of the United States, but even a citizen of the United States. Trump did not give Obama the dignity and respect of even being a person.
Then came the Mexican illegal aliens. Aliens. Not immigrants, but Aliens. Foreigners. Rapists, murderers. People not like us. Really not even people. Just things.
Then came the Muslims. They were not us. They couldn't be trusted. They were THEM. Not us.
