Readings: The very deliberate, sexist cruelty of Donald Trump

The Week:

Trump workshopped the “horseface” nickname among White House aides and friends before firing it off, The Daily Beast reports, and he thought the tweet would be “politically advantageous.” Some at the White House reportedly told him that going after Daniels would be unwise, but Trump disagreed, apparently feeling that hitting back at her would fire up his conservative base. Daniels has alleged she had an affair with Trump in 2006, an allegation Trump denies.

Dear conservative Christians: He means you. He thinks you like it when he slurs women. He thinks you like it when he slurs a woman he slept with while his wife was taking care of his infant son. He thinks you get “fired up” by that behavior.

Why would he think differently?
