    Some might say - who cares about what Elizabeth Smart says. I think many do. I think many consider her to be a hero in her own story of survival.

    The worst part about it is listening to people trying to belittle it, just saying, 'Well, it's locker-room talk, it's locker-room banter,' " she says. Anyone belittling sexual violence, sexual abuse, they're doing a huge disservice to victims of violent crimes, violent sexual abuse. There's no justifying it — ever."

    But, it's okay for Hillary to say it.

    When a Mormon runs for president, he's a member of a religious cult. When a Mormon complains about Donald Trump, she's a hero.

    Is that what you see in her ? She's just another Mormon ?

    I find it pretty low to belittle Elizabeth after what she went through. It's actually pretty soul-less.

    ETA: She's not a hero for putting Trump in his place. Do you know her story?

    So is referring to her as a bimbo. Truly disgusting.

    It's a straw man anyway. Where did I ever mention anything about being Mormon.

    Hillary didn't say it. Betsy Wright, a member of Bill's campaign coined that term. You could argue that HRC may have spoken through or encouraged her, but those words didn't emanate from her lips.

    Oh. And I've said it.

    And some people think I shouldn't have said it as well.

    Seriously.... Never heard of her. Who is she?

    I've heard of Jean Smart. And Maxwell.

    Why does anyone care about this person? Is it her harp skills?

    Obviously Trumps comments are detestable, and will probably cost him the election. The sad part is that you are stuck with Clinton who is a filthy corrupt POS.

    I literally have no words to the above. Maybe because you're based in Canada and her story wasn't big there.

    Thats what happens when you mess with the Clinton News Network and her corrupt band of special interests.

    No I wasn't based in Canada until 6 years ago, unless her story is recent...

    2002. Maybe you're too young then. I really don't know many people, if any, that doesn't know the name at the very least. Huge story. Especially since she was found.

    No one knows who the person is or why her opinion would be anymore relevant than anyone else's.

    I already posted a summary of her life above. Did Trump kidnap and rape someone since the last time I saw the news? Anything is possible this election season.

    Do the math, ZA.

    Born in 1987. Abducted at the age of 14. That puts her incident at 2001. Seeing that you became an ex-pat 6 years ago, you were definitely old enough to know her story as it was national news for those 9 months.

    So your lack of knowledge of this can be only of ignorance or naivety. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that it is the latter, but only just.

    And beware of those Mormons; they are closer to winning the White than Trump this election.

    BL.
