Why ’50 Shades of Grey’ doesn’t forgive Trump’s behavior

November 1, 2016 - Fifty Shades of Grey

Last week we wrote a mainstay about Newt Gingrich perplexing to contrition Megyn Kelly by observant she’s “fascinated with sex,” and a uninformed spin of “50 Shades” emails appeared.

“What star or protected space do we live in, and how does ‘9 1/2 weeks’ and ‘Shades of Grey’ sum so most income if it wasn’t for females profitable to see a movies?” one male wrote. “Every lady dreams of this stuff, yet when it doesn’t spin out good or usually like a film they spin on you.”
