People Keep Trolling Trump’s Tweet About International Women’s Day With His Quotes About Women


Today is International Women’s Day and the Day Without a Woman strike. The organizers of the strike are the same people who organized the wildly successful Women’s Marches that took place around the country following Donald Trump‘s inauguration in January and they announced the event in a Guardian article titled, “Women of America: we’re going on strike. Join us so Trump will see our power.”

In spite of — or perhaps because of — the fact that this is pretty clearly a movement designed, at least in part, to flex power in the face of Trump and what the organizers described “his aggressively misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic and racist policies,” the president issued two tweets on the topic of IWD today.

It didn’t take long for people to start responding to him, of course. Many responses focused on his healthcare policies, which many see as anti-woman. Some, though, pulled a Megyn Kelly and just repeated his old quotes on women back to him. The quips about never putting a wife to work, grabbing women “by the pussy,” and the importance of treating women “like shit” made frequent appearances.

It goes on like that.

Happy International Women’s Day!
