Well, the left is predictable if nothing else. Surprise – it’s the kickoff to “World Breast-Feeding Week.” What an odd coincidence that an article just happened to be posted at the New York Times just days before the commencement of “World Breast-Feeding Week.”
We’ve all heard the claim by attorney Elizabeth Beck that Donald Trump had an absolute meltdown during a 2011 deposition. The innocent Ms. Beck merely asked if she could take an hour break to pump some milk for her three-month-old daughter.
That’s when Trump “got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there,” Beck told CNN.
Yet both Trump and his attorney recall the incident a bit differently. Attorney Allen Garten said, “She was disgusting. She was attempting to breast-feed – to pump in the middle of a deposition, in a deposition room with five lawyers and was not excusing herself.” Garten said that Beck had “orchestrated the stunt because, ‘she ran out of questions and she didn’t know what to do.’”
Beck said Trump displayed a “lack of self-control,” and added, “What kind of leader of the United States would that be? Is he going to behave that way when these negotiating treaties with China or Russia?”
And there it is. The New York Times, CNN and all the other lefty outlets are scared to death of The Donald. This isn’t about breast-feeding or women’s rights. It’s about a attempt at a gotcha piece on Trump. That’s it!
Yet they will all try to make it about breast-feeding and women’s rights. And so they did on Friday, in the first in the nation primary state of New Hampshire, where in Concord, the state capital, “Nursing mothers joined advocates at the Statehouse lawn on Friday to emphasize that women who breast-feed in the workplace should not face discrimination or retaliation, kicking off World Breast-Feeding Week.”
“I’d like to have us think back and remember when women lost their jobs because they were pregnant,” said Democratic state Sen. Martha Fuller Clark of Portsmouth. “We’ve come a fair way since then, but unfortunately, nursing mothers today continue to be discriminated against in public and in the workplace.”
Yes, it’s all about the sainted nursing mothers and by extension, their precious bundles of joy, for without their precious gifts, there would be no need to produce breast milk.
Martha Fuller Clark, hard leftist Democrat, is all about the mothers and their newborns. Or is she.
See, that’s the thing. Old Martha happens to be a board member in good standing of the New Hampshire [liberal] Women’s Foundation that works closely with and “invests” in both Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) and NARAL.
And she was proud of the fact that she, “Senator Martha Fuller Clark stood shoulder to shoulder with PPNNE’s CEO, Nancy Mosher, on the steps of the US Supreme Court as we challenged the unconstitutional parental notification law passed in 2003,” where a minor must have parental consent before authorizing the murder of her child.
These leftist hypocrites don’t give a horse’s rear end about breast-feeding women – and certainly not about the children who partake of it. You can’t be a supporter of Planned Parenthood and NARAL, and also claim to be all about nursing mothers and their precious babies. Certainly not after what we now know – what we’ve now seen of the barbaric Planned Parenthood organization. Own up and pick one.
So come on Dems – we see through your pitiful attempt to take out The Donald and resurrect the “War on Women.” Yet I don’t think it will work this time, because you on the left, media included, are simply ill-equipped for someone who won’t take your crap, roll over and beg forgiveness – like the McCains and Romneys.
You’re already demonstrating that you can’t deal with Trump or Cruz or anyone else who has decided not to take it anymore. You may just find yourself playing defense for a change, and frankly it will be fun to watch.
