Equal-opportunity skepticism

Let’s be fair to Donald Trump. No, seriously. That’s not a joke. When it comes time to judge the presidential candidates, we should remember what they say about geese and ganders, and apply the same standards to all members of this growing gaggle.

Both males and females of this species should get equal treatment, in other words. That’s where the fairness to the biggest goose of all comes in. A presidential campaign by anyone should be a brutal trial by fire.

We hear nonstop from those who want Trump out of the White House that anything goes, even to the point of judging his opponents less harshly. This particularly applies to those of the female persuasion. Already we are hearing complaints that women candidates are being required to cope with personal questions that the men are not. Who they slept with in the past is one (Kamala Harris); how abusive they have been to their subordinates is another (Amy Klobuchar). “Double standard,” their supporters bellow. “Guys are not held to the same criteria.”
