Trump's Buddies: A group of angry, white, abusive males

Some men just keep insisting on being clueless on top of our country's hierarchies, and will do whatever it takes to stay there. Trump is in great company.

Such is the case with Donald Trump and his right-hand advisors. According to the Chicago Tribune, we have New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who is notorious for bullying the press, thrice-married, notorious adulterer Rudy Giuliani who went to the Republican National Convention and led the call to "Lock her up," top policy adviser Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who has questioned whether the conduct Trump boasted about is really sexual assault after all, and Trump confidant Newt Gingrich who went on Megyn Kelly's Fox News show and screamed and pointed his finger at her, accusing her of having an obsession with sex.

Roger Ailes was forced out of Fox News for multiple alleged, gross acts of sexual harassment, and Corey Lewandowski, Trump's fired campaign manager, was caught on tape manhandling then-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.

"Might there be a pattern here? White, unhinged men, most well past their prime, acting abusively toward women."
