Donald Trumps Opinion of Women

I was searching for a particular vulgar thing the Donald had said recently towards women; I could not find it, as it turns out there are so many vulgar things he has said about women it proved impossible to find the exact one.

I will add my own opinion about my findings. The problem as I see it is not about being politically correct. It is about being respected and treated as an equal in the workplace, in the home and essentially everywhere in America, not shamed for our femininity when confronted with a strong, educated woman. 

Some examples can be found below:

Presidential candidate Donald Trump called a lawyer and breastfeeding mother “disgusting” after she requested a break from a deposition in order to pump, according to New York Times report on Tuesday.
According to the paper, lawyer Elizabeth Beck was questioning Trump in 2011 about a failed Florida real estate project. Beck, with her husband, represented clients who claimed to lose thousands of dollars in the deal. At one point, Beck, who had a 3-month-old daughter, requested a medical break which was contested by Trump and his lawyers, who wanted to continue, the Times says. That’s when Beck took out her breast pump to show that her request was urgent — she needed to pump for her infant. “You’re disgusting,” Trump told Beck before leaving the room.

In a 2013 episode of Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars, Trump made a rather vulgar joke about former Playboy model Brande Roderick performing oral sex on men to stay in the game because, really, isn't a woman's place in the boardroom on her knees? The exchange occurred when fellow contender Bret Michaels told Trump that at one point, Roderick "got down on her knees and passionately said, ‘I want to do this.'" Trump took that to mean...

Trump: “Excuse me, you DROPPED to your knees?”
Brande: “Yes."

Trump: "It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees."

Trump has a history of making crude remarks toward women. He reportedly said of his ex-wife Marla Maples, “Nice tits, no brains,” and more recently, he has called Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly a “bimbo” and a “lightweight” and said she had “blood coming out of her wherever” during the first GOP debate.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump denied he had ever called female adversaries some of the words Fox News host Megyn Kelly listed at the first GOP debate — "fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals." In fact, he has used all of those terms.
During the first debate, Kelly asked about the "downsides" of Trump speaking his mind "when it comes to women."
Kelly: You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. Your Twitter account
Trump: Only Rosie O'Donnell.
Kelly: No, it wasn't. Your Twitter account …
Kelly: … For the record, it was well beyond Rosie O'Donnell.
Trump: Yes, I'm sure it was.
During the debate, Trump said that with some of the comments Kelly referred to "it's fun; it's kidding" and that the country has a problem with "being politically correct."
