5 of the worst things Trump has said about women

Once again Donald Trump has insulted our ears with some more smack-talking during a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. As always, he targeted women. *cough Trump hates women cough*

Erratic tantrums, the long ramblings of a madman and a god complex so severe it's hard to tell whether Trump is a toddler suffering from bum rash or in fact your deranged uncle who lives underneath a bridge. I’m sure Donald Trump’s head of PR/spin doctor has not slept a wink since the onset of his 2016 Election campaign. But frankly my dear, I just don’t give a damn.

The latest: women should be punished for getting an abortion.

No guys, this isn’t Iran in the 1970s.

The Huffington Post reports that Trump condones punishment for women who have an abortion. (If all goes according to their plan, abortion will be made illegal in the U.S. should the Republican party take up office in the next election). He said there should be “some sort of punishment” for women who decide to terminate pregnancies. Naturally, Trump’s position was received with the utter disgust it deserved.

After going on a tearful caffeine bender (I presume), the spin team released a statement trying to backtrack. It read: "If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman," Trump said. "The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. My position has not changed -- like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions."

Here are 4 more horrible things Trump has said about women OR as Trump would call it “Tuesday afternoon”:

1.    He truly believes that all women are gold diggers

A 1990 Vanity Fair article quoted him saying: “I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?” And his 1997 book, Trump: The Art of the Comeback also said that all women hate prenups: “The most difficult aspect of the prenuptial agreement is informing your future wife (or husband): I love you very much, but just in case things don’t work out, this is what you will get in the divorce. There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her.”

2.    Sexual harassment in the military is natural

“26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together? ” – Trump tweeted on 8 May 2013.
Victim-blaming king, crowned.

3.    He called a woman “disgusting” for wanting to pump breast milk

A lawyer facing Trump in 2011 asked for a break to pump breast milk for her infant daughter, he reacted very poorly. Watch:

4.    Women are nothing without their looks

In his 2006 book, Trump 101: The Way to Success, he basically says that women are nothing more than aesthetically pleasing objects. The Huffington Post has also reported that he has said that women on The Apprentice need to rely solely on their sex appeal to succeed.
