Donald Trump's War on Women
Trump's Sexism On Display
“She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions,” Trump told CNN’s Don Lemon, referring to Fox News host Meghan Kelly “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever."
”You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass."
“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.”
“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."
“I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”
"Lyin' Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin' Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!"

"Nobody respects women more than Donald Trump."
Why Do Some Women Still Support Donald Trump?
Recent statistics clearly reflect that presidential candidate Donald Trump has lost a considerable amount of support among women. However, there are still a significant number of women who continue to stand behind Trump, despite his sexist statements. Who are these women and what exactly keeps them so loyal? It might be fair to say that these are women who see their husbands in Donald Trump. Tough, crude, boorish and completely uncensored might be a few of the adjectives that could best describe their better half. It is unlikely that such women could be categorized as feminists while it is extremely likely that it is the man who wears the pants in their family.
There is no reasonable explanation for any self-respecting woman who could support Donald Trump. This is a man whose misogyny is legendary. This is a man who believes that women serve their most important purpose in life on their backs. Donald Trump does not view women as anything other than sexual objects, and some say that includes his own daughter to which he once stated "Yeah, she's really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren't happily married and, ya know, her father ... "If Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her," Most recently "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" uncovered a 1994 clip where Trump was asked by a host what traits his 1-year-old daughter shared with then wife Marla Maples. Trump responded by stating "Well, I think that she's got a lot of Marla, she's a really beautiful baby, and she's, uh, she's got Marla's legs. We don't know whether or not she's got this part yet, motioning to his chest, "but time will tell."
While I do not believe that Trump is inclined to sexual perversions regarding his female offspring, I do believe that his statements more clearly reflect how he sees women, regardless of their age or their relationship to him. Such views cannot and should not be disregarded or ignored. Nevertheless, Trump continues to have women flock to his rallies like rock groupies, barely containing themselves from throwing their panties at their American idol. There are apparently some things in this world that simply defy logical explanation.
