Trump Attacked Ukraine Ambassador After She Refused To Hang His Picture At The Embassy

Are we supposed to be surprised that he's a sexist pig?

“President” Donald Trump made a phone appearance on his beloved Fox Network this morning, calling in to Fox & Friends to try to clean up some of his mess in the wake of the formal, public impeachment hearings that have been underway for the past two weeks.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that Donald will be going down for his crimes as more and more impeachment witnesses confirm, through their first-hand experiences, the account of the individual who originally blew the whistle on his corruption.

So, Donald is now doing damage control the only way he knows how — through an appearance on the state-run Fox News network.

And, as so many other things in Trump’s life do, the whole thing was a rather messy dumpster fire.

In the course of the interview, Donald accidentally admitted to the world, while trying to discuss the corruption of the Biden’s that he’s so hell-bent on, that he is in fact as big a champion of corruption himself as we all believed he was.

And the worst part of it all — his transgressions didn’t stop there.

During the phone interview, it seems it simply couldn’t pass up the chance to launch yet another attack on the former Ukranian ambassador that he personally had ousted, and impeachment inquiry witness, Marie Yovanovitch — this time seeming to attack her for simply being a woman. Oh, and the fact that she wouldn’t hang a picture of his smug mug on her office wall.

Trump was evidently quite vexed that Republicans haven’t done more to smear and attack the former ambassador, making the claim that she got special treatment simply because of her gender. Because yes, that’s how it works, women are treated so well around here.

“The ambassador — the woman — I said, ‘Why are you being so kind?'” Trump fumed in the interview. “Well sir, she’s a woman, you have to be nice.”

He then went on to list off the things he feels Yovanovitch did wrong during her time as an ambassador — such as refusing to hang his photograph in the American embassy in Ukraine.

“This ambassador that everyone says is so wonderful, she wouldn’t hang my picture in the embassy,” he stated. “This was not an angel, this woman, okay? And there were a lot of things that she did that I didn’t like.”

Are you surprised? Because I’m not.
