President Trump did not hold back Thursday when asked about Hillary Clinton disparaging women who voted for him.
Clinton said last week white women didn’t stand up to men, ultimately asking the males in their lives who to vote for in the 2016 election. “We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said during a paid speech in India. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
Trump hit back at those comments at a White House event for millennials Thursday.
Moderator Charlie Kirk asked Trump about tax reform, to which Trump said, “the word ‘crumbs’ is going to be like the word ‘deplorable,’ I think, for Hillary.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has regularly referred to the bonuses workers received from the tax cuts as “crumbs.”
Kirk noted that Hillary also referred to Trump voters as “irredeemable.” Trump replied, “That’s right. She actually said ‘deplorable and irredeemable.’ Irredeemable is probably worse.”
The audience of young conservatives laughed.
Trump then leveled both barrels at Hillary’s comments toward female Trump voters.
“Well, the one she did last week wasn’t too good either — that the woman goes and asks the husband, the son, and the male boss for approval to vote for Trump,” the president said. “That was not too good. That was not too good.”
Kirk responded, “She found a way to insult both men and women. She said women can’t make decisions on their own, and men are so controlling over women, they don’t allow them to make decisions of their own. Only Hillary could figure out a way to possibly do that.”
The audience laughed and Trump chuckled, “This is not good.”
