“How Trump Made Hate Intersectional”:
“It’s harder to talk about grabbing women by the pussy if there’s also a woman in the circle, and that in turn makes it harder to blindly assault. It’s harder to casually say nigger when there’s a black person in the circle, and that makes it harder to beat a black kid senseless without fear of repercussion. It’s harder to say faggot when someone queer is in the room, which lessens the ability to casually bully a gay person to the point where they take their own life. Yes, there’s hate spread throughout this country, but it stems from the sickness that involves stopping at nothing to keep spaces fully white, allowing white people to continue with behaviour that is no longer universally accepted in the real world.” [Daily Intelligencer]

From Ivanka Trump’s interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine:
“ ‘Of course [once he (President Obama) was elected] I wanted him to succeed, but he’s proven to be a very ineffective leader. He has just not risen to the occasion. He doesn’t have business experience or a business mind.
“ ‘He’s [Donald Trump] the best equipped to deal with the most important issues this nation has, which is ultimately that we’re suffering under a massive burden of debt. We need a very acute financial mind to get us out of this mire.
“ ‘America is the largest corporation on the planet.
“ ‘You wouldn’t hire a novice to run a similarly sized company in the private markets.
“Donald Trump thinks his daughter would be ‘a huge asset’ if he prevails. ‘There’s never been anybody like Ivanka in the White House. I think she’d be an amazing addition,’ he says, although he declines to speculate if she’d have an official position. ‘That’s so far in the future,’ he demurs.”
Since Donald Trump called off his over-before-it-started bid for the 2012 presidency, it might be very far in the future. Like 2016.
