In an interview this morning with Fox News, Donald Trump lamented that Hillary Clinton was a woman who is publically acknowledging that she is a woman. He said that Clinton was unfairly trading on her gender, “She’s playing the woman card,” Trump said (You know the woman card, an all-powerful card worth 78.3% of a regular card).
Trump was referring to Clinton’s recent interview with the Des Moines Register. In that interview, Clinton addressed Trump’s recent use of the phrase “got schlonged” as well as his disgust over her use of the bathroom. She told the Register that she “deplore[s] the tone of his campaign,” adding:
“I think he has to answer for what he says, and I assume that others will make the larger point about his language. It’s not the first time he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism. Again, I’m not sure anybody’s surprised that he keeps pushing the envelope.”
Trump told Fox that “mentioning sexism” was what amounted to playing the woman card. The Republican primary candidate then indicated that former President Bill Clinton, who is campaigning for Hillary, is “fair game.”
He also shared some enlightening thoughts about sexism and gender politics on Twitter:
