9 Times Donald Trump Said Things To Women He Wouldn’t Have The Guts To Say To A Man
You probably heard this this week that instead of worrying about some of the more pressing matters going on, including the GOP health care plan or focusing on his Friday meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Donald Trump was going after one of the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. No, not Joe Scarborough, but Mika Brzezinski (his soon-to-be wife), who’d spoken on the show recently about the president having fake TIME magazines with his face on the cover in his office. She also said this:
“Nothing makes a man feel better than making a fake cover of a mag about himself, lying every day and destroying the country.”
Your 45th president somehow found out about her comments and tweeted this:
While quite a few people were upset by his comments, it was honestly business as usual for a man who has the thinnest skin of all the mammals on earth. He has actually gone after Brzezinski in the past (she, herself, has said regrettable things, including blaming rappers for White people’s use of the N-word…). But I couldn’t help but notice, despite the fact that a lot of people say all sorts of things about the Donald, he finds the most enjoyment out of going after women (not Black women though, I think he knows the dragging that would ensue). And as I explained to my husband last night, while people have a right to defend themselves when a person, man or woman, speaks negatively of them, there’s something quite disgusting about hearing or watching a man argue with women. Where is this vitriol with men? He even has a history of going after the wives of men he doesn’t like — not the men. And while his character is as clean as a toilet, he has the nerve to go after the looks of women and what they’re capable of in relation to the men in their lives. Bet he wouldn’t speak to Putin out of the side of his neck…
Check out nine other times he went after women much harder than we suspect he’d ever go after a man.
This is a feud that has carried on for years. Trump has called O’Donnell everything from “crude, rude, obnoxious and dumb” to “a loser.” But one of the most disrespectful digs was at her reveal that she’d struggled with depression:
She announced last week that she suffers from depression. They called me for a comment, and rather than saying ‘I have no comment’ or ‘isn’t that too bad oh, that’s so bad,’ I said, ‘I think I can cure her depression,’ — most of you heard this. ‘If she stopped looking in the mirror, I think she’d stop being so depressed.’ And they said, ‘It’s a horrible statement, it’s a horrible statement.’ What’s so horrible about it? She attacks me. She said I had terrible hair. You know, it’s amazing. She calls me comb-over, she calls me — but we’re not allowed to attack.
I’ll let this one speak for itself.
In an Rolling Stone story from 2015, Trump talked openly and very ugly about Carly Fiorina who was also in the Republican race for president:
When the anchor throws to Carly Fiorina for her reaction to Trump’s momentum, Trump’s expression sours in schoolboy disgust as the camera bores in on Fiorina. “Look at that face!” he cries. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Trump took an especially low blow at Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington and her split from ex-husband Michael Huffington, who is bisexual, in 1997.
In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, Trump came for Megyn Kelly (known for her affinity for a White Jesus and Santa Claus — I didn’t forget) after she confronted him in one of the first Republican nominee debates about being sexist. He wasn’t happy about that. Here’s what he told Lemon about that debate moment.
“I knew it was going to be a big crowd, because I get big crowds, I get ratings,” Trump said. “They call me the ratings machine. And she gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. You know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base.”
Trump has said just about everything you can about Hillary Clinton since running against her for president, but one of his more disrespectful jabs came before they ever faced off with one another on the campaign trail. When speaking in 2015 about the idea of her running for president, he said, “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?”

Here’s another one I’ll let speak for itself.
When things heated up between Senator Ted Cruz and Trump in the race for Republican nominee for president, an anti-Trump Super PAC tried to shame Melania Trump for posing nude in British GQ in 2000. Trump took his anger out on Cruz’s wife, Heidi.
“Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad,” he tweeted. “Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!”
He would then go on to use a meme comparing the looks of Melania and Heidi with the caption, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
While he said he liked Kim Kardashian, deeming her a “nice person,” in an interview with HLN, that didn’t stop Trump from saying she’d gained too much weight during her first pregnancy while carrying North West.
“She’s a nice person, I’ve known her over the years,” he said. “She’s really a nice person. She’s gotten a little bit large. I would say this, I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.”
