Aimee Patton

A pleasantly eccentric take on politics

Even though the first GOP primary debate was days ago, the nation is still talking about it.  Fox News knew EXACTLY what was going to happen and they got it served up on a Trump-sized platter.  You should have just stuck a couple of white, leather couches up there, served everyone champagne and had Andy Cohen moderate the whole thing, because it was 100% D-R-A-M-A.  The Real Housewives Reunion had about as much substance as the GOP debate.


I think we all agree, the best part was the Megyn Kelly/Donald Trump exchange.  After the exchange, Trump said about Kelly, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump said during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday night. “Blood coming out of her wherever.”


Social media has gone CRAZY for days over this quote. Donald Trump said Megyn Kelly asked him questions that made him mad, because she was on her period! Oh snap!  I was about to get my angry typing on and rip him a new one and then I starting thinking about this quote and couldn’t stop laughing.


But Aimee – he said she was on her period. That’s so offensive to women. Where is your feminist anger and rants that we’ve all come to love?


If you read the quote, he first said she had blood coming out of her eyes.  I’m a woman and I had my period for many years.  Never ONCE did blood come out of my eyes.  If you are a woman and you are having your period and blood starts coming out of your eyes – GO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.  I know I’m not a doctor, but trust me something is seriously wrong.


Second – he said blood is coming out of her “whatever.”  I know many of us have special names for our girl parts – even Oprah called hers a vajayjay, but I’ve never heard it termed a “whatever” before.   If there are people in America calling a vagina a “whatever” now is NOT the time to consider defunding Planned Parenthood.  We need all the sexual education we can get in this country.


I do agree, however, that Trump is NOT an expert on women menstruating.  Here is how I picture him dealing with his wife’s time of the month.   Wife #3- “Honey I don’t feel so good.  I think it’s that time of the mon…”


Trump interrupts mid-sentence, “Go grab one of the Trump jets and pick one of my resorts.  Rest there until your womanly time is over.  Make sure you go to the spa and have a mud bath, seaweed scrub and full body massage.  Come back to me when you are 100%.  See you in a week to ten days.  By that time I’ll have made another 15-20 million.”


I don’t think he was saying Megyn Kelly was on her period, he was trying to say she was angry.  I think he just completely fumbled whatever quote he was trying to say for her being angry.  Like this for example, “Trump isn’t the smartest knife in the picnic basket.”  You know what I was trying to say, but I messed the whole thing up.  That is what we will now be calling a Trumpism.


Here is what everyone seems to be missing.  What he did after the debate was retweet (basically endorse) people calling Megyn Kelly a bimbo.  Let that sink in for a moment.  He doesn’t like questioning from her during a debate, so he allows people to call her a bimbo.  Trump has a history of this when it comes to women who challenge him.


Fast forward for a moment and lets say for shits and grins that he wins the presidency (I’ll hang on for those of you who need to go barf just thinking about that.) The reality is that there are powerful women leaders  that he will have to negotiate with. How’s it going to play if he gets angry and calls Angela Merkel a bimbo?


The Fox News debate was a political piece of cake.  He’s in the spotlight, with an audience of people who all agree with the politics of the people on stage.  You can’t get an easier set up and he still lost his composure.  He was riding the bike with training wheels and he couldn’t stay on it.  Wait until the training wheels come off and he’s in a debate against a Democrat with an audience who isn’t friendly.  Politically correct or not, is this who you want for President?


For those who support Trump – look at his website.  I’ve asked this question many times and I’ll continue to ask it.  If he’s a serious candidate what’s his plan?  There isn’t an issues section on his website.  He doesn’t discuss anything in detail except to say he gets ratings and runs successful businesses.  He’s going to make America great again.

Oh really?




Unfortunately running a business is not the same as running the country.  Maybe he’s going to roll out his details in 9 pm variety show on NBC?  That will get great ratings.


I’ve been asked why do I care?  Let Trump run and he’ll lose to Hillary.  In politics, nothing is certain.  I like good politics on both sides and I like a strong election.  I am a Democrat, and I want a Democrat to win, but there is always the chance that might not happen.  If that’s the case, I want a good candidate on the Republican side that is what is best for America.  Trump isn’t it.  Calling a woman a bimbo for a line of questioning that you don’t like isn’t being anti-politically correct – it’s just wrong.

    you said it all: I want a good candidate on the Republican side that is what is best for America. Trump isn’t it. Calling a woman a bimbo for a line of questioning that you don’t like isn’t being anti-politically correct – it’s just wrong.

    cannot add anything to it. Brilliant, and to the point.

  2. Some guy says:

    Well, I don’t agree. I think it’s pretty clear what he meant by “wherever”.

    The ironic thing about Trump is that while, yes, he is more personally obnoxious than most of his rivals, on the other hand he is the only one that will come right out and commit GOP heresy by saying, for example, that single payer healthcare is better than Corpor-O-Care.

    So I’m really not sure which Republican candidate I’d rather see nominated if I had to pick just one.

    Probably Kasich as he does seem to have the amputated stump of a conscience… but he seems more likely to be a VP level guy…

    “Andy Cohen” Who?

    “100% D-R-A-M-A” WTF?

    “The Real Housewives Reunion” What?

    “Oh snap!” Oh what?

    “I know many of us have special names for our girl parts – even Oprah called hers a vajayjay.” WAY TOO MUCH information here!!

    “If there are people in America calling a vagina a “whatever” now is NOT the time to consider defunding Planned Parenthood. We need all the sexual education we can get in this country.”
    And by “sexual education” we assume this is Ms. Patton’s euphemism for “killing unborn babies”?

    “You know what I was trying to say, but I messed the whole thing up.” This blogger’s rare admission of truth.

    “..lets say for shits and grins.” Ms. Patton’s increased use of profanity, is representative of her increasing mood disorder.

    “I like good politics on both sides and I like a strong election.” EXCUSE ME!!!! Ms. Patton is now flat out telling lies!! She most certainly does NOT like “good politics” on both sides. She’s so EXTREMELY unbalanced in a partisan way that she NEVER has a positive thing to say about the conservative message or messengers, while swallowing and regurgitating the liberal lines like a Democrat automaton with an eating disorder!

    Ms. Patton is showing her complete ignorance for how the national political system functions in this country. I’m sorry to report that she’s a DUPE.

    Readers, fasten your seat belts, and let’s go off the beaten path into the deep woods of the Truthful Forest.

    You can still make a difference on the local level in politics, and I encourage all who have an interest here to pursue it. On the national scene, especially our Presidential elections, I’m sad to tell you that you have ABSOLUTELY NO INFLUENCE. YOUR VOTE DOES NOT MATTER.

    Even if you consider yourself of above-average intelligence, you’re socially and politically aware, you read voraciously…….you’re no better off than those who’ve completely tuned out of politics in favor of sports and entertainment.

    FACT: In our Presidential election charade, if you choose to participate, you’re presented with a pre-selected candidate from the two controlled parties. And you thought you actually had a choice!! The two national parties are in fact members of the same tribe competing for leadership. An analogy is offered for understanding…..the Democrat and Republican nominee are members of the same fraternity/sorority who wish to be the chapter President for the next term. During the election, they will compete against each other, but with the understanding that after the vote, they will close ranks and remain brothers/sisters pledged to the same organization.

    Simply from a scheming diabolical point of view, those who’ve put this system into place were quite clever. Most people aren’t paying attention, and so voluntarily remove themselves from any discussion. Then, you have a minority of people who are trying to pay attention, but are captured by the false Right/Left debate charade. Those who self-profess to be political junkies are typically competitive people and extremely prone to a single party alignment, with little consideration for other views. So, each Presidential election cycle, the controllers offer up a choice of “chocolate” or “vanilla”……”hamburger” or “hotdog”….pick your own analogy. The beauty is that by offering you the illusion of choice, when things don’t get better after the election, it MUST be YOUR fault!! You didn’t choose the “correct” candidate!!! Once you’ve accepted the flawed 2-party system at the outset, you’ve been captured and neutralized.

    Most Americans report that they want NEITHER Jeb Bush nor Hillary Clinton to be the next President. Think about that for a minute. And then ask yourself, “why are they both still in the race?” and “why does the media keep reporting that they’re the frontrunners?”

    FACT: 400 Families Represent 50% Of Money Raised by 2016 Presidential Candidates So Far (August 2015)
    This conclusion came from a study by Princeton and Northwestern universities. See (Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens) at

    FACT: The U.S. is an Oligarchy:
    “Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But we believe that if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened.”

    So, as for Ms. Patton blogging about the Donald Trump versus Megyn Kelly contrived idiotic sideshow, what a waste!! A waste of Ms. Patton’s time and effort, getting waylaid by a corporate media clown show. And let’s be clear, both Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly are clowns, cut from the same soiled cloth of narcissism, self-promotion, and a desperate need for attention from strangers.

    The Bush and Clinton families are both organized crime families. A cursory review of either family tree will reveal details which should have prevented both from ever reaching high political office. But, and here’s the final TRUTH, this country itself on the national level is run like a crime organization.
