Trump’s Most Sexist Moments During the Presidential Campaign 

donald trump

Ivanka Trump has famously called her father Donald J. Trump a "feminist," but his own sexist comments about women during his campaign for the presidency contradict that notion. 

The Republican presidential nominee has a history of gender-based insults. After a presidential debate, Trump put down Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, saying he "could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. There was blood coming out of her whatever."

His argument with Kelly stemmed from her saying to him in the first primary debate, in August 2015, "You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals..." Before she could finish the question, Trump interjected, "Only Rosie O’Donnell."

Trump has also accused the Democratic presidential nominee of playing the "woman card." "If Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she would get 5 percent of the vote," he said. See more sexist comments from Trump below.

On Megyn Kelly:

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. There was blood coming out of her whatever."

On Hillary Clinton:

“If Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote." 

“She is a woman, she is playing the woman card left and right. Frankly, if she didn’t, she would do very poorly. If she were a man and she was the way she is, she would get virtually no votes.”

"I was the one that really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women more than anybody in the construction industry. And my relationship, I think, is going to end up being very good with women."

“I haven’t quite recovered, it’s early in the morning, from her shouting that message. I know a lot of people would say you can’t say that about a woman because, of course, a woman doesn’t shout.” 

On Carly Fiorina:

"Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

“When I came out, I was competing against 17 very capable people … and a woman.” 

On Arianna Huffington: 

On Katy Tur:

“She’s back there, little Katy. What a lie it was … what a lie it was for NBC to have written that. Total lies … a third rate reporter. Remember that. Third rate."

On the Gender Pay Gap:

"You're gonna make the same if you do as good a job."

The Republican nominee who once said "I would be the best for women" will face Hillary Clinton tonight in the first general electon debate, which airs at 9 o'clock Eastern.
