Trump Clings to Traditional Gender Roles in Mocking Long-Haired Male Protester

DONALD TRUMP

Donald Trump essentially called a male protester in a man bun "a mama's boy" while feminizing him and criticizing his hairstyle. 

Donald Trump has a long-standing obsession with traditional gender roles. Early in Trump's tenure in office the hashtag #DressLikeAWoman began trending following a report that the guy who uses Scotch tape on the back of his overly long ties prefers that the men who work for him be "sharply dressed" and that women "dress like a woman," whatever that means in Trump's world. During a self-congratulatory rally in Duluth, Minn., Wednesday, Trump mocked a male protester who failed to conform to the what Trump believes are normal gender roles.

When a protester sporting a man bun and carrying an enlarged photo of Trump with admitted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein crashed the rally, Trump ordered security to haul him out of the venue while also feminizing the man by addressing him with a term typically reserved for women or at least for people who share a level of intimacy.

"Get him out of here. Go home to your mom, darling," Trump said, also implying that a man with long hair must surely be a "mama's boy."

But the leader of the country wasn't finished hurling his '50s-era gendered barbs at the man. Once security removed the protester from the premises, Trump continued with his sexist bombast.

"Was that a man or a woman?" Trump queried to a cheering audience. "Because he needs a haircut more than I do. I couldn't tell [if he was a man or a woman]. He needs a haircut."

Of course, it's not surprising that Trump, a man reportedly furious thatSaturday Night Live feminized the men in his administration by casting Melissa McCarthy as former press secretary Sean Spicer and Kate McKinnon as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, would continue to play to his base by mocking any style that doesn't entirely adhere to decades-old gender stereotypes.
