How does the grass grow?

American conservatives have a problem with the female body and its reproductive functions.

Mr Trump’s comments are in line with the mainstream of American conservative views of women. You’ll recall the Missouri Republican Todd Akin, who argued that the bodies of women who suffer “legitimate rape” have the ability to “shut down” pregnancy. Rush Limbaugh, the de facto leader of the conservative movement in America, called Sandra Fluke a “slut” after she testified before Congress about birth control coverage in health care insurance. Don’t be fooled by the faux outrage of these conservatives now.

Mr Trump is the rapacious Id of the Republican Party. That’s why the Party seeks to repress him now.
