Because Donald Trump and those on his team are so predictable, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his vice-presidential choice Kamala Harris have been preparing for an onslaught of misogynistic and sexist rhetoric. A group of influential women activists and leaders have offered a warning for media covering this “historic moment”: Avoid sexist stereotypes. It’s part of the “We Have Her Back” initiative. Trump didn’t waste any time on Tuesday after Biden announced his pick and immediately called Harris “nasty” during his briefing. Trump did that repeatedly just in case we didn’t hear it the first time.
The attacks on Hillary Clinton in 2016 were an indication of what’s going to happen during this election cycle. Fans of this president wore “Trump that bitch” t-shirts, and violent rhetoric toward Clinton rang out at Trump’s godawful rallies. So, when we ran across Eric Trump’s Twitter timeline in which he “liked” a tweet basically calling Harris a whore, it wasn’t too surprising. And it’s sexist — terribly sexist. And it wasn’t Harris that paid a porn star to have sex with her.
Eric liked the second tweet below:
Here’s the original tweet and notice the number of likes it got:
Raise your hand if you think Harris was a whorendous pick. 🙋♀️

Twitter users were disgusted but not surprised.
The misogyny will run deep the next few months.

As Joe Biden says, we’re fighting for the soul of this nation, and Eric Trump just proved that point. There is no bottom with Trump’s adult children, except for Tiffany — the latter of which Trump seems to ignore. I wonder why that is. Trump is the one that cheated on each of his wives. Donald Trump is a whore.
