Donald Trump Breast Pump Shaming

Donald Trump berated a lawyer who was deposing him because she needed to pump breast milk for her baby, according to the lawyer and to Trump. Elizabeth Beck eventually came down on the losing side in the case, possibly because she brought her baby to the office and was tickling it while pretending to listen to the proceedings. At some point Beck asked for a one hour break so she could pump the milk, a standard courtroom procedure. Trump freaked out, apparently convinced she was stalling or at least was using the Sharper Image catalog to her advantage:

"He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You're disgusting, you're disgusting,' and he ran out of there."

Somebody's got some issues. Trump took to Twitter to defend himself, which naturally came in the form of shitting on Beck:

"Lawyer Elizabeth Beck was easy for me to beat. Ask her clients if they are happy with her results against me... Beck lost the case and I got legal fees. Also, she wanted to breast pump in front of me at dep."

I'm all for breastfeeding in public. The more the merrier. Do it at Sunday mass, funerals, fucking stock vestings, whatever briefings the community organizer gives you to fight off the zombies, it's all good. Perhaps the pump is a bit much though. Maybe leave it at home and mix up some formula instead of running the generator and monitoring the PSI of the hoses hooked to your nipples while you're in a fucking meeting. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just kind of distracting. The results speak for themselves. The baby was twelve years old.
