Donald Trump has ruined yet another holiday. As today is Mother’s Day in America, Trump decided to put a damper on everyone’s celebration by sending a message that almost no American woman would want to hear.
Taking to Twitter, the president posted an extremely uncomfortable 80-second video to send his own special ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ message. While Trump couldn’t look more forced and scripted in the video with his weird squinty eyes and facial expressions that were completely absent of any joy or genuine emotion, his words were pretty disturbing as well.
In the video, Trump spoke about the contributions of women and mothers throughout U.S. history whose “love and courage and devotion” helped shape the country. Trump said:
“America’s strength has come from the love and courage and devotion of our mothers. Through their grit, determination and incredible spirit, they pioneered the West and settled the frontier.”
Those are rather strange words coming from the most misogynistic, sexist president we’ve ever had in office. Then, things took a turn for the worse as Trump brought up his own mother, Mary MacLeod, who passed away in 2000. Trump said:
“I learned so much from my mother. She was just incredible. warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person.”
It didn’t start off too badly, and Trump almost sounded human for a second. But then Trump said this — making every viewer cringe:
“So much of what I’ve done and so much of what I’ve become is because of my mother. I miss her a lot.”
Now, Trump’s mother may not be around to feel this embarrassment, but we can only imagine how humiliated and upset she would be to see what Trump has become — and the fact that he is crediting her with his horrific leadership and bigoted behavior. Trump probably thought this would be a compliment to her, but it is obviously a serious insult!
