Newly released audio proves that Donald Trump has managed to hand down his atrocious misogyny to at least one of his sleazeball sons. During an interview with The Opie and Anthony Show in 2013, Donald Trump Jr. had the audacity to say that women should leave the workforce if they can’t handle it during a discussion about sexual harassment:
If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. You should go maybe teach kindergarten. You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know.
He went on to say that “you have to draw the line somewhere” but didn’t explain where that line was. Clearly, we know that the family doesn’t believe that grabbing women by the pussy is a big deal, so where that line is, nobody knows. What’s worse is that this disgusting piece of human trash has made deplorable comments about women in the past as well. A tweet from 2011 has recently surfaced where Little Trump made a joke about sexual harassment in the workplace:

Like father, like son, apparently.
Men like the Trumps and their supporters are the people who perpetuate the rape culture in the United States. They are the reason why so many women fail to report sexual assault. They are the reason rapists like Brock Turner get light prison sentences. The are the reason we cannot walk down the street without some creepy guy screaming at us. They are the reason we have to teach our daughters how to protect themselves and give them stun guns and mace. They are the reason people like Clarence Thomas are able to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States. They are the reason it is so important that we flood the polls on November 8 and elect Hillary Clinton. We cannot allow OUR children to think this kind of behavior is okay, even if Donald Trump taught his kids that it is.
