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.
