Cokie Roberts: Trump Calling Clinton Unhinged Is Code for ‘We Shouldn’t Elect a Woman’

cokie robertsAs far as ABC’s Cokie Roberts is concerned, Donald Trump attacking Hillary Clinton as “unhinged” is basically a gendered attack.

Trump has recently taken to calling Clinton “unhinged” and “unbalanced,” implying she’s “not all there.”

On ABC’s This Week this morning, Sara Fagen said that’s not the issue people have with Clinton, so that won’t be a particularly helpful line of attack.

Then Roberts said, “‘Unhinged’ and ‘she doesn’t look presidential’ is totally code for ‘we shouldn’t elect a woman.’ That’s exactly what that is.”
