Bimbo. Fat pig. Slob.
These are just a few of the words Donald Trump has used to describe women. On numerous occasions, Mr. Trump has taken to his Twitter account to launch misogynistic attacks. From Rosie O’Donnell to Bette Midler, Ariana Huffington to Megyn Kelly, no one is safe from the 120 character bashings. Trump has obviously never heard the saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
For a man with two daughters you might think he would be more sensitive to sexism and the plight of women, well, you would be oh so wrong.
Here is a list of some of my favorite (read: least favorite) quotes to and about women from Mr. Trump:
“Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.” – Oh, and in case you couldn’t tell, he was talking about himself. That’s right, not only spewing ridiculous and sexist mumbo jumbo, but in third person! Well done, Mr. Trump, well done.
“I mean, we could say politically correct that look doesn’t matter, but the look obviously matters, like you wouldn’t have your job if you weren’t beautiful.” – This one was aimed at a reporter covering one of his Miss America pageants. I have a feeling he was expecting this to go over as a compliment, but ummmm….it didn’t. It went over exactly as it sounded, sexist.
“It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees.” – I’m too busy choking on my own vomit to even have anything to say about this one.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever.” – We all knew when Megyn Kelly got on Trump’s bad side during the Republican debate, he would have plenty to say. But like any respectable man, when things aren’t going your way you just chalk it up to good ol’ menstruation.
“Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?! I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?” – If you know you’re not “s’posedta” say it, then maybe just don’t. This jab was aimed at Carly Fiorina, and no matter what your political views, it is just not cool. Women in politics face enough adversity without having Trump to deal with.
Obviously, the list goes on and on; countless instances of criticizing a woman on her looks, or her lack of femininity. This election season, there is no bigger threat to women than the sexist, patriarchal, tiny-handed candidate, Donald J. Trump.
In this new anti-Trump campaign video, watch women read more hateful quotes by the Republican’s leading nominee. And please get out and vote, because this joke will not be so funny come November.
