The 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump certainly seems to be digging his hole deeper every time he tweets, especially when those tweets are for the purpose of mocking the appearance of women. He either doesn’t get it or simply doesn’t care. To date he has attacked the appearance of eight different women since officially launching his bid to become President on June 16, 2015. Although there are countless other women he has attacked, both verbally and perhaps even physically, we’ve decided to stick to the ones attacked while he was in the international spotlight.
Mika Brzezinski (Blood)
The most recent attack was targeted towards the ‘Morning Joe’ co-host in retribution to her pointing out that Trump hangs fake Time Magazine covers in his resorts. Trump tweeted:
“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!” Trump tweeted earlier this morning.”
Hillary Clinton (Butt)
This attack occurred following one of the Presidential debates in mid October of last year, in which Trump lurked behind as Clinton answered questions from the moderator. In a rally speech following the event, Trump explained his actions as follows, implying that he was not ‘impressed’ with Clinton’s butt:
“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.”
Megyn Kelly (Blood)
In early August of 2015, shortly after announcing his Presidential bid, Trump took part in the first debate with fellow Republican candidates. Megyn Kelly was the host, and Trump did not like the way she allegedly attacked him with questions. He explained the questioning as follows:
“She gets out there and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions, and you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her … wherever.”
While Trump claims that he was not referring to Kelly’s menstrual cycle, the vast majority of the media didn’t believe him.
Carly Fiorina (Face)
One month after the Megyn Kelly incident, Trump was caught making comments on his private jet about his Republican opponents. Paul Solotaroff from Rolling Stone was on the plane as Trump watched the replay of the last debate. He wrote the following about what he had witnessed on the plane:
When the anchor throws to Carly Fiorina for her reaction to Trump’s momentum, Trump’s expression sours in schoolboy disgust as the camera bores in on Fiorina. “Look at that face!” he cries. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Heidi Cruz (Face)
In March of last year, as the Republican field narrowed, Trump decided now was a better time than ever to attack the wife of his opponent Ted Cruz. Trump posted a tweet stating “A picture is worth a thousand words,” which was attached to the following image of Melania Trump and Heidi Cruz.
The image alluded to ‘Spilling the beans’ because Trump had insisted that he was going to spill the beans about Heidi Cruz, whatever that meant.
Elizabeth Warren (Cheekbones)
Trump repeatedly called the Senator ‘Goofy’ while mocking her cheekbones. At one point he went as far as saying that Warren had been unable to document her Native American heritage, and then he impersonated Warren pointing to her high cheekbones as evidence.
Alicia Machado (Weight)
After being accused by Machado, a former Miss Universe Winner (1996), of calling her ‘fat’ and ‘Miss Piggy’ back in the 90’s, the topic came up in one of the Presidential debates in September of last year. At the end of the debate, Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of taunting one of his former Miss Universe contestants, Machado, about her weight. Trump disputed the accusations during the debate, but then the very next day he appeared on ‘Fox and Friends’ where he once again called Machado ‘fat’.
“I know that person. That person was a Miss Universe person,” Trump told the Fox News morning show. “And she was the worst we ever had, the worst, the absolute worst, she was impossible,” he said. “She gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude.”
Machado got her US citizenship shortly before the election, and we all know who she didn’t vote for.
Natasha Stoynoff (General)
Ms. Stoynoff, a former Toronto Star reporter, had accused Trump of sexually assaulting her on a plane. She was only one of seven individuals who had accused Trump of inappropriate kissing and touching, but Trump verbally attacked Stoynoff the hardest. He called her out directly, suggesting that she wasn’t attractive enough for him to want to do any of the things she claimed he did to her.
“Take a look, you look at her, look at her words, you tell me what you think. I don’t think so,” Trump stated. “These people are horrible people. They’re horrible, horrible liars.”
