Donald Trump Defends Burqas But Can't Help Being Sexist About It

Sigh.

Donald Trump, a man of the people, totally understands why a woman would wear a burqa. It's because then she doesn't have to bother with makeup! Duh!

At a town hall event in New Hampshire on Monday, Trump spoke about how he would approach foreign policy if elected president in 2016. According to The Boston Globe, Trump said that he would not get involved with any national mandates requiring that women wear burqas, because "They want to... What the hell are we getting involved for?”

Trump went on to say that women probably find it "easier" to wear burqas, because "you don't have to put on make-up."

"I tell you, if I was a woman," Trump said while waving his hand over his face to simulate wearing a burqa. “[I'd be like] 'I'm ready, darling, let's go.'"
