Donald Trump is already having an extremely difficult time attracting female voters, with Hillary Clinton leading in all polls among women voters. He was already fighting off charges of being a misogynist — and now after the infamous Trump Tape and after eleven women have come forward accusing him of sexual assault — Trump did what Trump does. He doubled down and boy did he double down.
At a campaign rally on Friday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Trump apparently was “hitting back” at Hillary Clinton describing Donald Trump at the last debate standing in front of her as some kind of male power move on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
Trump responded with his own version of the event, correctly stating that it was actually Hillary Clinton who stepped in front of his lectern, then strongly suggested that he wasn’t sexually attracted to her.
“I’m standing at my podium and she walks in front of me, right? She walks in front of me — you know — and when she walked in front of me, believe me, I wasn’t impressed.”
The crowd of loyal Trump supporters laughed off the disparaging remark as you might expect. The problem is, Trump already has those people. If he’s trying to reach new people or undecideds or women, this is probably not the way to do it.
