Here is what the idiot said: “All right you’ve got a woman of the President of the United States and the Mullahs say, ‘We are not going to deal with you. We don’t like you. We don’t think you are as good as men. The Muslim world does not accept equality. You know we’re not dealing with you.’ So right away there is a deficit there, no?”
So…. He’s just going to ignore all of this:
- Indonesia, the most populous Muslim-majority country, elected Megawati Sukarnoputri as president
- Pakistan, the second most populous Muslim-majority country, elected Benazir Bhutto as prime minister…… TWICE
- The third most populous Muslim-majority country, Bangladesh, elected Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hasina as prime ministers
- Turkey elected Tansu Çiller, as prime minister in 1993
- In 2011, President Atifete Jahjaga was unanimously elected by the Assembly of Kosovo for the Muslim-majority region of Kosovo
- In 2010, after acting as interim leader following the Tulip Revolution, Atheist Roza Otunbayeva became the President of the Muslim-majority Kyrgyzstan
- From 2001 to 2002, Senegal’s Mame Madior Boye was Prime Minister
But no, women in power won’t be taken seriously….
At least not in Right-Wing Republican land, anyway.
I love it when these morons try to hide behind world affairs and cultures to spew their own agenda vomit.
