it is profoundly unfair to discriminate against women at the workplace because of their biology.
That women give birth is as unfair as gravity, which keeps us from realizing our dream of flying. But it is not wrong to acknowledge it. The point was — and remains — that this biology is inconvenient. Why is acknowledging the inconvenience "sexist"? Can a true statement ever be unfair? How about these:
- Blacks have more pigment in their skin than Whites.
- Women have uterus.
Are these two racist and sexist respectively? And if they aren't, why an equally correct statement about employee's pregnancy being an inconvenience is?
By stating that this is an inconvenience to employers, Trump is stating that this unfair state of affairs should continue.
Stipulating for a second, that "unfairness" equals "discrimination", is he even stating that?
While a tortured interpretation is required for Trump's words to appear remotely sinister, Hillary Clinton's dismissal of rape-accusations as "Bimbo Eruption" is Ok with you... The hypocrisy is so thick, you can cut it...
It was racist primarily because there was absolutely no basis in fact
But there was basis! His father was from Kenya and traveled there with his pregnant mother. Whether she returned to States to give birth or not was not at all obvious.
people claimed, despite contradictory evidence, that he was born in Africa
I haven't seen such claims — certainly none by Donald Trump. The evidence — still posted on White House web-site — only appeared in 2011.
and was a Muslim
A son of a Muslim is a Muslim — fact. And converting to any other faith, as Obama has done, is a capital offense under Sharia — but Obama's religion is a different topic, let's not get distracted.
as if either condition disqualified him from being a US citizen
No, his citizenship was not in doubt. Whether he was a natural born citizen was questioned. And McCain faced similar questions — which, for some reason, have never been denounced as "racist".
