Trump vs. Obama: Talking About Women

One champions women’s rights, the other bashes their looks.

Over the past month, President Obama’s job approval rating has been rising. Many observers believe that this is happening not because of any particular policy decisions but simply because he looks stable, thoughtful, and presidential compared to the candidates attempting to replace him. The contrast between Obama’s cool, stately demeanor against Donald Trump’s boorish, bullying antics is easy to see.

When it comes to how they feel about women, there are massive differences. Obama has championed women’s issues by supporting equal pay, ending discriminatory practices in healthcare coverage, and creating a task force to protect students from sexual assault. On the other hand, a new poll by Reuters found that 50 percent of women have a “very unfavorable” view of Trump. While on the campaign trail, Trump’s actions against women have shown little more than contempt. He’s bashed the appearances of both presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and the wife of Ted Cruz, and has even made comments about reporter Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle.

Here are some other Trump quotes that make it easy to understand why women view him unfavorably.

“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

“If I were running The View, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I’d say ‘Rosie, you’re fired.’”

“Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision.”

“A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.”

“I like kids. I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them; I’ll supply funds, and she’ll take care of the kids.”

“If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?”
