Satire: “Trump: Decision to Consider Women Humans Should Be Left to States”
“Trump: Decision to Consider Women Humans Should Be Left to States”
by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)— “Attempting to repair some of the fallout from his recent remarks about women, Donald Trump said on Sunday that the decision of whether women should be considered humans should be left to the states. “I wouldn’t want to tell Texas whether women are humans, for example,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “They obviously have some very strong opinions about that.” When asked point-blank whether he considered women humans, the billionaire responded, “It should be a case-by-case thing.” Trump also blasted the media for applying what he called a “double standard” to his remarks about women. “I can call a woman a pig and it’s totally taken out of context,” he said.
Trump’s latest comments drew a strong rebuke from his chief rival, Senator Ted Cruz, on the campaign trail in Wisconsin. “Once again, Donald has utterly failed to find a subtle way to express the Republican Party’s anti-woman views,” he said.”
