As a parent, this bothers me. It brings up the question as to why he would do it?

Obviously it’s intent is to send a signal. “Like I am master”; “I’m beyond Reproach”; “I am in complete Control”; “My needs trump all Others”.

It also says I don’t care what society thinks; I’m doing exactly what I want.

With today’s technology, were it a misplaced squeeze, it could have easily been reshot and spliced. And with Republican hopes of a Senate victory, you know their top analysts all looked at it before it was sent out?

Puzzling… why was it left in?

Yes, it supports the Republican’s version of family values.. “keeping it in the family” But it also shows a very callous nature on the person playing the role of the father…

What it shows is that in that arrangement, a daughter’s place is to serve the needs of her father, and not what I always thought should occur… a father’s role to grow and nurture his daughter…

When one places this scene in context with his last election, where his Vietnam-ed missing limbed opponent was deemed to be too un-American for Congress… you see a psychologically disturbing trend…

This is one sick man, folks.. This is the last thing Congress needs right now.

You really have to ask… why would anyone do this?

And I won’t even bring up what it does to the daughter who now has to live with this the rest of her life…

Her first college date: “Oh…. so you’re THAT daughter….”
