The picture above is that of a “nasty woman”. The female of our species may be smaller, but few men go through life without ever beating a hasty retreat from an angry woman. In fact, Proverbs records such a retreat as an act of wisdom.
Proverbs 21:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 Better to dwell in a corner of a housetop,
Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
Imagine Donald Trump’s anguish. For three 90 minutes sessions he had to put up with a tongue lashing from Hillary Clinton. If he were married to her, he could have escaped to a luxurious rooftop at one of his mansions. Instead, he was trapped in close proximity with a nasty, cold blooded woman determine to verbally eviscerate him. It goes against every instinct and social convention for a man to take such abuse without heading for rooftops.
So how did the news media report the matter? Well, Trump slipped up. He stated the obvious and shared his misery: “Such a nasty woman”.

Well, Hillary Clinton is a woman. She certainly has made every effort to make sure we know it. And as Donald Trump observed, she debates like a “nasty woman”.
What can we do about it? Well, we might want to think long and hard about who is most responsible for making this presidential campaign something so unsuited for children to watch. Meanwhile, let’s all pity and pray for poor Bill Clinton. May he always be able to find a quiet rooftop.
