The first thing that I noticed watching 60 Minutes, after her unnaturally enormous breasts and her obvious dignity, was that she is a very smart person. She talks so to the point that she would be an excellent editor (writer). A smart cookie.
It’s easy to see how Trump liked her. She’s his type of extremely good-looking and just like him, she’s strong-willed and exceptionally smart. Allegedly, he said: Just like my daughter Ivanka. In an extramarital affair, it is logical that he didn’t say: Just like my wife, but this is also what attracts him in his present wife: she is her own person and presents herself well to the outside world (trophy quality). People like Trump can be very lonely and it’s nice to have company, feel that you’re not alone.
(Not that affairs really satisfy our need for intimacy, as his alleged repeat behavior proves.)
Now, one of the prominent things she stressed was that her alleged “sex” (intercourse) with Donald Trump was consensual. No one forced her. She is not a victim.
This is a good example of someone extremely bright who doesn’t get it yet, because emotional smartness doesn’t always keep up with our intelligence.
I realized exactly what I’d gotten myself into. And I was like (DEEP LONG SIGN), “Ugh, here we go.” (LAUGH) And I just felt like maybe– (LAUGH) it was sort of– I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone’s room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, “well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this.”
THAT is EXACTLY what the #metoo movement alleges. That especially many men take opportunity as permission, and that many women feel as if they have no voice to protest and power to resist (confirmed by haughty men).
Ironically, one of her most important reasons for the interview was to claim that she was not a victim. Her words though state that she was. She thinks victims need to be pathetic.
No, proud women can fall victim too. Just as Monica Lewinsky now finally admitted, decades after she was taken advantages of.
Admitting victimhood does not disgrace the victim. We never blame the victim. Victims get to stay proud, also when everyone knows.
I hope she gets it quicker than Monica.
