"These women out there are so anti-Trump, and I don't even think they know why. They just think that's the thing to do."
The anniversary of Donald Trump’s ignominious inauguration was marked by massive resistance from women, but the women who advise Trump just can’t figure out why.
On Tuesday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” Trump TV host and daughter-in-law Lara Trump went out of her way to trash more than one million Americans who participated in Women’s Marches across the country this past weekend.
Asked an unrelated question about celebrities criticizing Melania Trump’s empty anti-bullying campaign, Lara volunteered that she was “so disappointed to see the Women’s March wasn’t just about women.”
“It was more of a hateful, anti-Trump protest, which I think is really sad because this president has done so much for women,” Trump continued, without a trace of irony. She named three women in the Trump administration, including national disgraces Kellyanne Conway and Betsy Devos, as proof and cited a women’s unemployment trend that Trump inherited from President Barack Obama.
Then, in a shockingly insulting moment, Trump insisted that “these women out there are so anti-Trump, and I don’t even think they know why. They just think that’s the thing to do.”
Conway and Lara Trump know exactly why women march against Donald Trump. It’s the same reason Conway feels like she needs a shower after defending Trump’s sexual predation on TV and dozens of other reasons.
Lara Trump and Kellyanne Conway may think they’re being clever in trolling the women who are leading the resistance against Donald Trump, but if the last year has proven anything, it’s that women are only more energized by these attacks.
Trump’s inaugural crowd was dwarfed by Women’s Marches a year ago, and some of this year’s marches were even bigger. But it is the march of women running for office and winning that the Trumps should really be worried about.
