Trump: If ‘Clinton Were A Man,’ She Wouldn’t Get 5 Percent Of The Vote (VIDEO)

Trump Clinton woman card

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.”

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.
