Mr. Donald Trump is a well-known sexist as he tends to not only objectify women but also criticize them for their looks. This time, he assaulted Rep. Maxine Waters by calling her ‘a very low IQ individual.’ Maxine Waters in turn demands impeachment.
Trump’s sexist nature
Donald Trump has been verbally abusive since we know him. It has been so even before his presidential campaign. In the early 90s, he once called women ‘beautiful pieces of ass’:
You know, it doesn’t really matter what [they] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.
He also reduced an Olympian to her looks in November 1992. Trump said that Katarina Witt, German gold-medal winning ice skater, was:
Wonderful looking while on the ice but up close and personal, she could only be described as attractive if you like a woman with a bad complexion who is built like a linebacker.
Insulting Maxine Waters
It looks like such sexist remarks, criticism, and objectification of women are simply built-in his mind, and you can do nothing about it. On March 10, Trump described Rep. Maxine Waters as ‘a very low IQ individual.’ The congresswoman didn’t hold back and responded to the attack. She simply pointed out the obvious fact that ‘everybody knows who this bully is.’ She followed up with:
If he thinks he can stop me from talking about ‘impeach 45’, he’s got another thought coming. I am not intimidated by him. I’m going to keep saying that we need to impeach him.
Maxine also described Donald as ‘a dishonorable human being’ and called him ‘a conman.’ She ended her response with:
That’s who he is. That’s what we expect [from Trump]. And I’m not surprised at all.
“Everyone knows who this bully is. This President has attacked more more women, more individuals – name calling … this is what we expect of him.”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin commented on the incident saying that:
You know he likes to put names on people. He did that through the entire presidential election, including all the Republicans that he beat. These are campaign rally issues.
Some people responded aggressively against Donald Trump’s assaults and verbal abuse:
I seriously CANNOT listen to him anymore!!! His rallies are devoid of substance and filled with hateful rhetoric

That’s what’s expected of him? But why should you have to take it from him? Just because he’s president doesn’t give him the right to be verbally abusive, does it?

However, there are a lot of people defending the president:
He is attacked everyday by the left and the media…they just can’t handle the fact that he defends himself and gives it right back to them????????

But he always speaks truth! When you don’t know the difference between Korea and Crimea well… when all you know is impeach well…

Maybe, Trump’s constant insults are just a part of a political game, or maybe, they are indeed a part of his really dirty personality. Who knows?
