Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t have made it to this point in the 2016 race if she were a man during a Tuesday night press conference following his sweeping primary wins in five states.

Asked by a female reporter to address his charge that the Democratic presidential frontrunner was “playing the woman card,” Trump replied: “I think the only card she has is the woman’s card. She’s got nothing else going. And frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s wife Mary Pat, who stood directly behind Trump, appeared to roll her eyes at the remark. She then gave a pained smile.

“The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card and the beautiful thing is women don’t like her, okay?” Trump added, to cheers from female supporters in the audience at Trump Tower.

“And look how well I did with women tonight. Okay?” he continued, to more cheers. “So ladies and gentlemen, thank you, thank you very much.”

Trump then quickly exited the stage to the strains of the Rolling Stone’s “Start Me Up.”
