Last night, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton met for their first presidential debate. The big story was that Trump repeatedly interrupted and talked over Clinton.
It is sad commentary on the entire debate if the candidates interrupting one another is the “big story”.
Feminists immediately seized the opportunity to decry Trump as sexist and his behavior as misogynist:
To the men amazed Clinton hasn’t snapped: Every woman you know has learned to do this. This is our life in this society. #debatenight
