<p>Amidst the media&rsquo;s wall-to-wall coverage on Friday morning of Donald Trump&rsquo;s late-night tweetstorm about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, MSNBC host Tamron Hall bemoaned the idea that this is a collective degrading of political decorum because it&rsquo;s a <strong>&ldquo;substantive&rdquo;</strong> because it concerns whether Trump can win over women voters.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Of course, this admission by Hall serves as a glaring double standard concerning how the prevailing thought has been that invoking any number of Clinton scandals both salacious (Bill&rsquo;s sex scandals) or not salacious (Clinton&rsquo;s e-mail server, Clinton Foundation) are boring distractions and could drive voters to Hillary Clinton who somehow feel sympathetic.</p>
