Gloria Steinem has strong feelings about Donald Trump, and unsurprisingly, they're not glowing.

During the Wednesday night premiere of her powerful new docu-series for Viceland, "WOMAN," Steinem did not mince words about Trump's misogyny. The feminist icon responded to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee's assertion that Hillary Clinton plays the "woman card."

"I think [Donald Trump] is playing the testosterone card," said Steinem, pausing for a moment. "No, I don't wanna say that because both women and men have testosterone. He's playing the masculinity card, because gender... is totally made up and we can unmake it up. He doesn't know that."

Trump has talked about the supposed "woman card" before, but last week he doubled down on that rhetoric. "If Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote," he said.

L'sigh. We'll be trying to tune out Trump for the next six months and tune in to what Gloria Steinem has to say, instead.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar,rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
