“Such a nasty woman.”
The comment came not long after Clinton called out the GOP presidential nominee for his history of misogynistic and insulting comments.
Trump had followed up by stating, “No one has more respect for women than I do.”
The irony was not lost on Clinton’s campaign:
Post-debate, NBC newscasters were discussing the “nasty woman” remark, with anchor Lester Holt saying, “It was a bizarre interjection.”
“This is a candidate who has a deficit with women,” said anchor Savannah Guthrie. “It was so striking to see him actually go there.”
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.
