Trump Warns Hillary Against Playing ‘War on Women’ Card
Donald Trump warned Hillary Clinton on Wednesday against using the woman card.
“The Hillary Clinton staged event yesterday was pathetic,” Trump said in a tweet, referring to a Clinton rally Tuesday in Keota, Iowa, where a young girl who said she had asthma asked how to deal with bullies. Clinton told the girl she had had a lot of “terrible things” said about her and later added that the country “shouldn’t let anybody bully his way into the presidency,” apparently referring to Trump.
“Be careful Hillary as you play the war on women or women being degraded card,” Trump added in the tweet.
The Hill reports:
Trump’s warning comes after he stirred controversy by saying Clinton “got schlonged” by then-Sen. Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary race.
The Republican primary front-runner has been accused of misogyny for using the Yiddish term.
Trump said the term is “not vulgar,” citing a National Public Radio report in 2011 that used the term to describe Walter Mondale’s defeat in the 1984 presidential campaign.
He also said it was “too disgusting” to see Clinton walking back on stage from a bathroom break at Saturday’s Democratic primary debate.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Clinton’s communications director urged people to condemn Trump’s “degrading language.”
The billionaire businessman was previously accused of making a sexist remark about Fox News host Megyn Kelly, when he said she had “blood coming out of her whatever” at the first GOP debate.
