Hillary Clinton Has Epic Response To Trump Saying She Uses The ‘Woman Card'
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had big wins in Tuesday's primary elections. Clinton won four states, and Trump won five.
Both candidates have taken big leads against their competitors in the race to become their respective party's presidential nominee.
With Clinton and Trump looking to the general election, it's likely we're going to see an increase in sexist comments made by Trump about Clinton. Trump made that clear on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Trump has said Clinton is using the “woman's card” — aka calling on people to vote for her because she's a woman — because, you know, Uteruses United, or something. As everyone knows, historically speaking, being a woman super helps you get elected as president.
At a primary night press conference on Tuesday, Trump was asked how, exactly, Clinton uses the “woman's card.”
Trump reportedly said,
The only thing she's got going is the woman's card, and the beautiful thing is, women don't like her.
He added if Clinton was a man, she'd get less than 5 percent of the vote.
However, as Vox pointed out, women like Clinton a lot more than they like Trump. In a Morning Consult poll, 43 percent of women said they had favorable opinions of Clinton, and only 34 percent of women had favorable opinions of Trump.
Fifty-two percent of women said they had “very unfavorable” opinions of Trump.
During Wednesday morning talk shows, Trump continued on his misogynistic tirade.
At her primary night victory party on Tuesday, Clinton came with a clap back for Trump's remarks.
Clinton reportedly said,
Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, ‘woman card.'
Well, if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.
Mary Pat Christie, Governor Chris Christie's wife, seemed to disagree with Trump's taunts. She was standing behind Trump on Tuesday night at the press conference.
When Trump said the only thing Clinton has going for her is the “woman's card,” Christie gave what may be the baddest political side eye we'll see this year.
The primary season continues through June. The parties will pick their nominees at their conventions in July.
