Editorial: Media’s mythical war on women

The liberal news media, in an effort to push the mythical Republican “war on women,” are quick to point out Donald Trump’s politically incorrect comments on women.

This is exactly what the Democrats want.

The only reason Hillary Clinton is the Democrat frontrunner is because she is a woman and liberals believe that more women – including Republican woman – will look past her massive shortcomings and vote for her as president.

That strategy in part explains how a conservative city like Tulsa ever elected liberal Democrats like Susan Savage and Kathy Taylor as mayor.

On a national level, it worked for Barack Obama as he got almost all of the black vote in 2008 and 2012.

Republicans are not at war with women. But in 2012, the liberal media began the myth that the GOP opposed all forms of contraception. The real issue was that conservatives don’t want to be forced to pay for someone else’s contraceptives.

And Trump isn’t helping matters.

He should have apologized after his campaign manager grabbed a Breitbart reporter. Instead, Trump and his campaign attacked the reporter.

And Trump should have never put out an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz, the wife of Trump rival Sen. Ted Cruz.

Trump should have said that Democrats are at war with unborn women with their support of legalized abortion.

Trump is finding it harder and harder to disguise his low regard for some people – including women. Look for Hillary Clinton and the liberal media to hammer him through the convention for his lack of graciousness toward the fairer sex.
