After Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of playing the “woman’s card” (and she does), Hillary Clinton’s campaign decided to fundraise off the accusations.
The email read:
Donald Trump has been saying the “woman’s card” is all Hillary has going for her — I just loved Hillary’s response: “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the ‘woman card,’ then deal me in.”
Apparently other people did, too. We’ve been hearing from supporters all over the country that they’d like a “woman card” of their very own — to display proudly on a fridge or pull out of their wallet every time they run into someone who says women who support Hillary must not be using our brains (that’s a real thing Donald Trump’s senior adviser said yesterday).
The email directs users to “chip in” to receive their very own Woman Card.
Trump has chided Clinton for using her gender as part of her campaign platform:
Donald J. Trump, fresh off winning five primary contests, doubled down on his claim that Hillary Clinton is playing the “woman’s card” on Wednesday, and insisted that she would have few votes if she were a man.
Mr. Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, raised eyebrows — and even appeared to receive an eye roll, from the wife of Gov. Chris Christie, one of his top supporters — when he said in a postelection news conference that Mrs. Clinton was leading in the Democratic race because of her gender.
“If Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote,” Mr. Trump said.
Despite suggestions that the remark is sexist, and it drew a quick response from Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump defended it during a around of television interviews on Wednesday and said that he would continue to call her out if he thought she was playing the gender card.
“She is a woman, she is playing the woman card left and right,” Mr. Trump said on CNN. “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.”
Clinton can cry “sexism” all she likes, but that doesn’t change the fact that Trump is right on this one.
.@HillaryClinton: I'm not asking ppl to vote for me bc I'm a woman. Vote "on the merits. And I think one of the merits is, I am a woman."
