Donald Trump’s Savage War Against Women

No question about it - the world is warming to Donald Trump

Donald Trump claims to cherish women, recently telling CNN anchor Jake Tapper that, “I cherish women. I want to help women. I’m going to do things for women that no other candidate will be able to do. And it’s very important to me.”

However, as Huffington Post reports, over the years Trump “has consistently insulted, belittled, sexualized and stereotyped women. He has also taken the time to personally insult individual notable women like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rosie O’Donnell, Cher, Bette Midler, and others.”

During the first Republican presidential debate Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Trump how he would handle “the charge … that [he is] the part of the war on women.”

“You have called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’, and ‘disgusting animals,’” Kelly told him, adding “Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees.”

Trump laughed off the question at the time, saying that he didn’t “have the time for total political correctness.” However, a day later Trump unleashed a tirade against Kelly calling her a “bimbo” on Twitter and telling CNN host Don Lemon her questions were “ridiculous,” and calling her “off-base,” adding, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”

Below is a collection of some of the worst of Donald Trump quotes lashing out at women in reverse chronological order:

1. “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?” (Rolling Stone, September 2015)

2. “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” (Twitter, April 16, 2015)

3. “How much money is the extremely unattractive (both inside and out) Arianna Huffington paying her poor ex-hubby for the use of his name?” (Twitter, April 6, 2015)

4. “I mean, we could say politically correct that look doesn’t matter, but the look obviously matters. Like you wouldn’t have your job if you weren’t beautiful.” (Trump speaking to a female reporter, featured on Last Week Tonight later that same week, September 2014)

5. “26,000 unreported sexual assults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?” (Twitter, May 7, 2013)

6. “While @BetteMidler is an extremely unattractive woman, I refuse to say that because I always insist on being politically correct.” (Twitter, October 28, 2012)

7. “During one down period, I referred to him in print as a ‘financially embattled thousandaire’ and he sent me a copy of the column with my picture circled and ‘The Face of a Dog!’ written over it.”(New York Times columnist Gail Collins writing about an encounter with Trump, 2011)

8. “Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world I would say to myself, thinking about me as a boy from Queens, ‘Can you believe what I am getting?’” (Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life, 2008)

9. “Rosie O’Donnell’s disgusting. I mean, both inside and out. You take a look at her, she’s a slob … ” (“Entertainment Tonight,” Dec. 21, 2006)

10. “… she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” (ABC’s “The View,” March 6, 2006)

11. My favorite part [of ‘Pulp Fiction’] is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up. Tell that bitch to be cool. Say: ‘Bitch be cool.’ I love those lines.” (TrumpNation: The Art of Being The Donald, 2005)

12. “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me— consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.” (How to Get Rich, 2004)

13. “It’s certainly not groundbreaking news that the early victories by the women on ‘The Apprentice’ were, to a very large extent, dependent on their sex appeal.” (How to Get Rich, 2004)

14. “There’s nothing I love more than women, but they’re really a lot different than portrayed. They are far worse than men, far more aggressive … ” (The Art of the Comeback, 1997)

15. “Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.” (The Art of the Comeback, 1997)

16. “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.” (The Art of the Comeback, 1997)

17. “I have really given a lot of women great opportunity. Unfortunately, after they are a star, the fun is over for me.” (ABC’s “Primetime Live,” March 10, 1994)

18. Women: “You have to treat ’em like shit.” ( New York magazine, November 9, 1992)

19. “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” (Interview with Esquire, 1991)

21. Speaking of his then-wife: “I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?” (Vanity Fair, September 1990)

21. “When a man leaves a woman, especially when it was perceived that he has left for a piece of ass—a good one!— there are 50 percent of the population who will love the woman who was left.” (Vanity Fair, September 1990)
