Donald Trump Accuses Hillary Clinton Of Playing The ‘Woman Card’

Trump’s sexism will be his downfall

As Donald Trump inches closer to becoming the Republican party’s nominee, he’s toned down the offensive off-the-cuff remarks to appear more presidential. But Trump’s attempts at respectability have always been a one step forward, two-steps-back proposition. Even though his unfavorability ratings with women would most likely tank his campaign in a general election, he still can’t stop himself from beating up on Hillary Clinton for being a woman.


Tuesday morning on “FOX and Friends” Trump suggested that Secretary Clinton’s campaign is only successful because of reverse sexism. “I call her ‘Crooked Hillary’ because she’s crooked, and you know the only thing she’s got is the woman card,” Trump said. “That’s all she’s got, and it is pandering.” But Clinton had a great response that proved she’s unafraid to fight back against Trump’s grade-school antics. At a victory rally in Philadelphia, Clinton said: “The other day, 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.”

After Clinton’s comments, Trump doubled down on his baseless sexism. “She has got nothing else going,” Trump told supporters at a victory rally in New York. “Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get five percent of the vote. And the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her.” His bullying tactics with Clinton are similar to when he belittled “Little” Marco Rubio for his age, mocked Carly Fiorina for her looks and shamed Megyn Kelly for menstruating.

As Clinton and Trump head into the general election, Trump’s favorability with women will be a massive anchor around his neck. A Gallup poll found that 70 percent of women have an unfavorable opinion of Trump---a rating that may eventually deal Clinton into the White House.

Walmart workers issued a "wake up call" to Alice Walton, an heir to the retailer's $500 billion fortune, in New York on Tuesday by marching to Walton's penthouse and demanding her company pay its 1.5 million workers a living wage and give them reliable, stable work schedules.

The protest was partially a response to the company's so-called "Great Workplace" restructuring initiative which Walmart began testing last year and plans to roll out in at least 1,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores by the end of 2020.
