If I were those woman spacewalkers, I wouldn't want to talk to the Pres. Trump for his sexual abuses and perversions with women.
It is perfectly possible that they had absolutely no desire to talk to Pres Trump, however he is (currently) responsible for the program that put them in space, so like it or not they had to suck it up. Oh wait, I probably should have used a different phrase there.
Their only other option was to find another country/ another space agency to sponsor them. Good luck with that.
It is a bit like flying in the 737 MAX (if/when it is ungrounded).
For all the talk of people saying they will never fly on one, if it is the only flight from PQR to XYZ then you either take the MAX or start walking....
Much as I despise Trump I do agree that this latest gaffe ranks pretty low in the pantheon of mistakes he has made.
Perhaps we should cut him some slack and simply recognize he is an old and sometimes confused man who makes mistakes. Lots of mistakes.
It could happen to anybody.
The fact he is POTUS makes it a little different, but that isn't entirely his fault; there are 62 million voters who are guilty of putting him in this position.
Nothing to see here; move along please.
