Wolfram and Hart’s new partners*

It runs in the family:
“I’m of that mindset — and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days,” Trump began. “If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position.
That’s the quote that all the newsies are going with, but the whole thing is appalling:
The hosts then joked about pulling up pictures of naked women on the computer screen in their recording studio.
“Wouldn’t it be funny if we showed tits and then Donald sued?” one asked.
“I’d feel harassed!” Trump Jr. joked. “This is my get-rich-quick scheme. I’m now suing you guys because I feel uncomfortable.
“And by the way, that’s what happens in the world. I can play along, I can be fine, and then I can decide randomly — ‘Uh oh, you now have crossed the line, even though I’ve been going with it.’”
Now besides the obvious point that the radio show hosts are not Udsay/Qudsay’s boss or coworkers, yes that is harassment. It leads to a hostile work environment, regardless of gender. Reverse the gender or the sexual orientation of any of the participants or the porn, and you still will come up with harassment. It’s the very definition of sexual harassment.
What is so hard to understand about this?
* I’m never sure which Trumpling is which, nor am I sure it matters.
