Recently, our President said that the Kamala Harris, the Attorney General of California is the best looking Attorney General in the US. “She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country — Kamala Harris is here.” There are nine female Attorneys General in the US. The President just gratuitously insulted eight women (including seven Democrats) who he has to work with in the future.
This reminds me of the Gilligan’s Island episode with the beauty contest. Each of the three ladies on the island had a supporter, Mary Ann/The Professor, Ginger/The Captain, and Mrs. Howell/Mr. Howell. Gilligan was the tie breaker. The lesson of the episode was that men should not compare the looks of women they know. It creates personal conflict. Any American boy of the President’s age should have seen this episode many times and taken the lesson to heart. Perhaps they did not have Gilligan’s Island on Indonesian TV.
