Someone might need to remind President Donald Trump that women can actually vote in elections. In a week where Trump has already suggested it’s insulting to men for Joe Biden to pick a woman as a running mate, he’s now spent another interview raging against an array of powerful women who he says are too mean to him.
The president was up early Thursday to call into Fox Business Network at 7:30 a.m. Trump, being interviewing by Maria Bartiromo, was typically unfocused, contradictory, and confusing. But one thread that connected most of his answers is that he’s very angry that women in the Democratic Party and the U.S. media have the audacity to criticize or question him, and that he’d like them to be quiet.
Unsurprisingly, Trump’s first target was Sen. Kamala Harris, who made history this week by being named by Biden as the first Black woman to feature on a major presidential ticket. Dismissing the ex-prosecutor as “sort of a madwoman,” he said: “She was so angry, such hatred with Justice Kavanaugh. I’ve never seen anything like it. She was the angriest of the group, and they were all angry.”
