Hillary Clinton was quick to fire back at Donald Trump after he accused her entire campaign of resting on the “woman card” during his victory speech following Tuesday night’s primaries.
“If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in,” a fired-up Clinton said in a video posted to her Twitter feed. Her comments were taken from her own Tuesday night victory speech and contrasted with video of Trump disparaging her:
Fighting for women’s health care, equal pay, and paid leave.
Or as Donald Trump says, playing the “woman’s card.”https://t.co/Ask6loAOFO

Clinton shared the video both Tuesday night, shortly after Trump’s address ended, and on Wednesday morning. It also features footage of the GOP frontrunner claiming that she wouldn’t get “5 percent of the vote” if she were a man.
Trump was characteristically unapologetic Wednesday morning as he made the rounds on morning cable news shows.
He told the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he still hasn’t “recovered” from Clinton’s “shouting” about his remarks on the so-called woman card. On CNN’s “New Day,” he insisted discussing this subject was a winning strategy for the general election.
“She is a woman. She is playing the woman card left and right,” Trump said. “She will be called on it.”
