ICYMI: Donald Trump Insults Women Four Times In Four Days
Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433
Donald Trump is a sexist bully who has attacked and insulted women for years, but this week, he’s stepping it up and doubling down, launching new attacks every single day. There is no question that Trump does not care about or understand women — and every day, he shows us why electing him would be a disaster for women and their families.
Trump started his latest string of insults on Saturday, attacking a Muslim woman whose son died fighting for the United States in the Iraq War.
In an interview with USA Today columnist Kristen Powers published on Monday, the GOP candidate insulted working women across the world when he said that he would expect his daughter, Ivanka, to “find a new career” or company if she were sexually harassed by her boss at work. He made the comment in a conversation about Roger Ailes, the former Fox News chief whom multiple female employees have accused of demanding sex from them in exchange for career advancement.
Of course, Trump was not content to insult only Muslim women and working women. He decided to publicly mock a woman holding a crying baby at his rally in Ashburn, Virginia, on Tuesday, and then kick both the mom and baby out of the event.
Then, at the same rally, Trump turned his attention to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Do you think she looks presidential?” he asked the crowd. “I don’t think so.”
Of course Clinton doesn’t look presidential. Every president the United States has had for 240 years has been a man. But Trump was likely not referring to the glass ceiling when he commented about his opponent’s looks.
Before this week, he had called women “fat pigs” and “dogs,” said women should face “punishment” for having abortions, and allegedly called a female attorney “disgusting” when she requested to leave a deposition in 2011 to pump breast milk.
