What must it be like to walk through life with absolutely zero self awareness? I imagine it would be much like Donald Trump, noted misogynist and sexual predator, tweeting a self-congratulatory screed about how much he’s helped the women of America. Yesterday, the president tweeted, “I have done more for WOMEN than just about any President in HISTORY!” and crowed about the upcoming 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment.
