Trump Accuses Tough Questioner of Being a Bush Plant
The heated Republican nomination process is a comedy gold mine. During a recent event, Donald Trump fielded tough questions about women’s equality.
Trump provided a stereotypical answer and moved on. Following the event, the billionaire accused Jeb Bush of planting an intern to ask him difficult questions.

NBC News reports:
The woman, identified as Lauren Batchelder, demanded to know if Trump would ensure that woman are paid the same amount as a man if he became president and if she would have say over her body.
Trump responded that a woman “will make the same if you do as good a job.” In response to the abortion question, Trump simply said, “I’m pro-life.”
The Bush campaign responded that she has never been paid but volunteers at events.
“Like many in NH, Lauren is a student at St. A’s who is passionate about and active in politics and attended this event on her own accord. While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign, we can’t help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women,” a campaign aide said.
