Trump ramps up sexism on morning cable shows
We shouldn’t expect less from this misogynist.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Trump was asked about Clinton’s comment during her own Tuesday night victory speech that “if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!”
Trump responded by trotting out the sexist “shouting” trope that is often deployed against Clinton.
“I haven’t quite recovered, it’s early in the morning, from her shouting that message,” Trump said. “And I know a lot of people would say you can’t say that about a woman because, of course, a woman doesn’t shout, but the way she shouted that message was not — ooh. I just, that’s the way she said it.”
On ABC’s Good Morning America, Trump recycled another sexist line from his Tuesday night speech — that if Clinton were a man, she wouldn’t be doing as well as she is.
“It’s not sexist, it’s true,” he said. “It’s a very, very true statement. If she were a man, she’d get five percent.”
Finally, on CNN’s New Day, Trump offered up this doozy — “When I came out, I was competing against 17 very capable people… and a woman.”
