Trump’s tweet in honor of International Women’s Day just backfired BIGLY

To commemorate International Women’s Day, President Trump tweeted that he has “tremendous respect” for women. Women aren’t buying it.

During the course of his 2016 campaign, the now-45th President of the United States was accused by nearly two dozen women of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Roughly a month before the election, a tape from a 2005 Access Hollywood segment was leaked to the Washington Post in which Trump bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy” without their consent. Twitter users reminded Trump that his rhetoric about “respect” for women was nothing but empty words.

Twitter user @MissVickiV tweeted several memes of Trump’s face with his own sexist quotes on display. Throughout the election, Trump’s demeaning comments about women drew widespread criticism from both liberals and conservatives alike.

New York-based activist Keegan Stephan tweeted an excerpt of Trump’s book, The Art of the Comeback, in which Trump characterized women as either dutiful wives or conniving bloodsuckers. Stephan also tweeted a snippet of a 1994 interview in which the billionaire real estate mogul told men to “be rougher with their wives,” and that he goes “through the roof” when he comes home and dinner isn’t ready.

Perhaps the winner of the day is Twitter user @MariaMelee, who suggested to President Trump that if he wishes to demonstrate his “tremendous respect” for women, he should give that whole “President of the United States” thing a try.
