Trump Adviser: The Average Woman Not Using Her Brain Will Vote Clinton (VIDEO)

Tana Goertz, senior adviser to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, argued Wednesday that the average woman who isn’t keeping up with politics or “really using her own brain” will vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“The average woman who isn’t really involved in politics or isn’t really using her own brain to go, ‘let me see you know what does, what has this woman done for our country’ — they’re just going in and saying ‘I guess I should vote for her because she’s a woman,'” Goertz said in a panel discussion on CNN.

Her comments came a day after Trump slammed Clinton for playing the “woman card” in a victory speech following his wins in five primary states. Clinton challenged his suggestion, telling him to “deal me in” after herself winning four states’ primaries on Tuesday.

Goertz stated that she was unsure why “a lot of women” were supporting Clinton and agreed with Trump’s argument that she had bad policies.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
