Condoleezza Rice Gives The Best Response To Donald Trump Wishing She Was A “Bitch”

Condi Rice dropped the mic

Even back in 2006, Trump was saying that he could do a better job than the current White House. In televised remarks surfaced by Deadspin, Trump was filmed saying that he didn’t really care if former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was a nice person. Rather, Trump implied in not-so-polite terms that Rice was too soft with foreign countries and leaders.

“I wish she was a bitch, said Trump, “I don’t care if she’s a lovely woman. I want somebody that can go and make deals.”


Trump made the comment during a keynote address at the Learning Annex Real Estate Wealth Expo at the Javits Center in New York City, according to the Huffington Post.

In remarks a year later, he reiterated that the United States didn’t need just sound bites and photo ops with dictators from Rice, but rather someone who could negotiate deals. Trump, of course, suggested that he’d do a very good job—as would about 20 other people he knows.

Rice fired back this week, albeit laconically. To CNN she wrote of his remarks, “Exactly. Can't wait until November 9!”

Rice has opposed a Trump presidency, but hasn’t been actively supporting a Republican candidate. On October 8, Rice wrote on her Facebook wall:

"Enough! Donald Trump should not be president. He should withdraw. As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”

There was some speculation that Rice would run as Governor Jeb Bush’s running mate, but Bush dropped out of the primary too early to know what would have happened.

Past remarks by Trump have been surfacing in a flurry just weeks before the election. The now infamous hot mic remarks about grabbing women by the genitals because he could—because he was a star—has sent his election campaign into a tailspin, with Clinton now leading polls by double digits.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
