"Suburban housewives" trump is so and so out of touch.

SurfaceTension: How big is the Venn diagram intersection of "can afford to live in the suburbs" and "single income family?" Can't be all that big, can it?


My family falls into that category.  Except my wife is the income and I am the stay-at-home dad who volunteers for Democratic candidates.

But he already has the evangelical vote.

Officer Barrelroll: Pissing off working women by talking about being a housewife is a solid strategy.

Are we sure Trump aced the part of the cognitive test that showed he knows what year it is ?


Does he think all women are housewives because of Leave it to Beaver or because him and all his buddies have trophy wives who don't really work?


Now I'm picturing Trump as being so proud of Ivanka because she actually got a job instead of just marrying Jared and being a trophy wife, that like her having a job puts her in the 1% of women who actually work, she didn't want to just sit at home she is a go getter who actually went out and got a job, in her dad"s business as an executive and isn't it great that she could start out as an executive and not in the steno pool. She isn't one of those steno girls, just looking for a husband she's actually like smart and works like a man at a man's job not one of those womanly jobs just goes to show how special Trumps are, but not Tiffany her mom was an American everyone knows European Trophy wives are what real succesful men have like Trump did twice meaning he can be forgiven for marrying an American but she was hot, too bad her daughter isn't as hot as Ivanka, Trump would date Ivanka if she wasn't his daughter but Tiffany, if Tiffany wasn't his daughter he eouldn't date her, sure he'd Fark her but date her, no. And look at Tiffany going to law school and not getting an executive job like Ivanka, did he ever tell you how Ivanka got an executive job right out of college, how smart is that? Started right up as an executive, and she still got a rich husband. A success times two, an executive and a trophy wife. And she's smart listen to her name off the state capitals, man Trump thinks he really wishes he cod get someone so hot and succesful and smart like Ivanka

inglixthemad: A_Listless_Wanderer: The "suburban housewife" is nearly extinct. Every adult woman I know has a job.
The fact that the Trump Campaign is targeting housewives is just another example of how out of touch conservatism is with America.

No reason for an adult woman to sit on her arse at home, at least after the last kid leaves for kindergarten. Doubly so if the woman is educated, which is likely since women passed men in receiving 4 year degrees in the early 1980's.


Trust me, I know. I'm currently a housewife because both kids are <5. I have been freelance writing to keep my resume from having a large hole, but that is more for intellectual stimulation and so I feel like I'm not "just a housewife". Once kid #2 hits first grade, I hope to switch to full-time work. I am waiting until 1st grade because kindergarten here is 1/2 day. There is an option for all-day, but the wait list is  long.

Didn't white women vote for the Braying Jackass by a 53-47 margin?

That's why he's pandering to them: He got a bare majority last time; he's counting on all of their white racist husbands to vote for him again; and he's trying to cut off everyone's right to have their votes counted except for white racists and their wives.

But he put it in quotes!! He totally meant to use it as a catch all for housewives, househusbands, working wives, working men... Totes what he meant to do...

I'd say that he needs to stop beating this dead horse because he's not getting anywhere with it. Then again, maybe that's a benefit for us?

I think Trump is conflating "housewife" with "trophy wife" as a woman with no job.

Rather than fearing integration, a housewife's bigger fear is being traded in for a newer model.

Arm candy has a sell-by date. Just ask Trump.

I had my eyes opened in '08 when Obama was running and I went to a neighborhood event. I had no idea that my little neck of the woods was so diverse.  And it made me happy.  It made my world seem a little bigger and I knew I lived in a good place because EVERYONE wants to live here. And I decided that it really doesn't matter to me what color or religion my neighbors are, so long as they keep their lawn mowed
 
2020-08-12 10:03:04 AM  

Grungehamster: KarmicDisaster: What program is he talking about? Oh, right, Trump.

Under the Obama Administration, in July 2015 HUD promulgated the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule pursuant to the Fair Housing Act. It requires cities and towns which receive Federal money for any housing or urban development related purpose to examine whether there are any barriers to fair housing, housing patterns or practices that promote bias based on any protected class under the Fair Housing Act, and to create a plan for rectifying fair housing barriers.

AKA, if you are going to get federal funds you have to do a review to confirm you aren't creating conditions that discriminate against minorities. What an outrage; Trump promises that you can keep the riff raff out!

And again: it is putting the horse back in the barn several decades late if you are trying to keep minorities out of the suburbs.


Like he ever knew. The closet he ever got to the burbs was watching Leave it to Beaver.

There's only 1. She's 88 years old, racist and mad as hell. Covid-19 will kill her before she casts a ballot.

It's even more ridiculous because Trump's own base is overwhelmingly low-income (as well as low-education, low-intelligence, etc.).

/Yes, I know what he *really* meant by "low income."

I'm assuming you don't live in the Bible Belt. Do you know how many evangelical women down here are proud to look down on women who spit in God's eye by wearing pants and getting jobs outside the home?

My fantasy is Trump will ask biden, during one of the debates, if he has had a cognitive test. Biden will respond by saying yes I will take one right now. And say, "person man woman camera TV."

Biden can then ask Trump if he knows where that is from.

In my fantasy Trump doesn't remember

Sid Vicious' Corpse: And I decided that it really doesn't matter to me what color or religion my neighbors are, so long as they keep their lawn mowed

HA, so true. There's this huge house a couple doors down from me (white pee-po) and they cut their grass maybe once a month. They also party constantly and have loud music booming and I live like 200 yards from them, so if I can hear it from inside the house, I dunno, maybe they're on PCP. The black family next door and the Asian immigrants behind me are much better neighbors. The Asian family weeds their yard by hand, which is weird, but hey, it's not attracting snakes like the other one.

Trump's first wife was a working woman and she ran his hotel empire while he was running around the country trying to get attention for himself.  She did the job better than he could and after they divorced, he said that he would never let any future wife work.

In the North of England white refuge communities still exist unfortunately. When I moved to West Yorkshire I was inadvertently put in one of them by my relocation package from my new employer. I didn't notice at first because I worked long hours and socialising was limited to begin with. Later, after a few months it hit home.
The local estate agents were called Whitegates ffs. I was called "trouble" by the locals when I "accidentally" imported an Asian friend into the area when her marriage broke up.
Even there the wives have jobs, cost of living is colourblind.
 
2020-08-12 10:24:43 AM  

Lumbar Puncture: Aside from the racist dogwhistle, Trump still thinks housewives exists like he doesn't even realize the trickle down economics of his party never trickled down and so most married couples in the suburbs are dual income households.


Oh, fancy. You're able to survive in a household with only 2 incomes.
 
2020-08-12 10:25:48 AM  

New Rising Sun: I wonder how many of the people he's targeting this statement toward actually resemble the image he's trying to conjure up?  Like, are tons of his supporters *really* living some dream Leave it to Beaver existence?  Is that what life is like in middle of nowhere, plains state suburbs?  I honestly don't know.  If it were 1990, sure I could believe that, but after two recent economic downturns, are lots of people still making that happen, or is the 'suburban housewife' really also going to work full time so they can make the payments on the mortgage that bit them in the ass around 2008 after the new rates kicked in.  Is he pandering to people treading water, barely keeping their head high enough to breathe, by saying 'yup, my legion of super swimmers will vote me to a 2d term'.


No, no they aren't.

That sort of lifestyle may have held on through the 70's and even the 80's in more rural parts of the country, but the economic reality is that no, it hasn't been practical in over 20 years pretty much everywhere.

The housewife, in the 1950's conception of the stay-at-home wife of a typical middle-class man who doesn't need to work because her husband makes plenty of money for all (with the couple being white, of course). . .so she stays home and cooks and cleans and raises the kids and watches soap operas in her spare time. . .died at least a quarter century ago in the last vestiges, if not a half-century ago in most of the country.

Trump's appeal to "suburban housewives", trying to scare them about Joe Biden bringing "low income housing" to their suburbs is foghorn (not a dog whistle) aimed squarely at the housewives of the 1950's to 1970's. . .who are either dead, or elderly boomers now.
