No one respects women more than noted pussy-grabber Donald Trump. This, according to Trump, is indisputable. Which is why it may shock you to learn that, back in 2006, in a speech made to thousands, Donald Trump called former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice “a bitch.”

From a New York Daily News article at the time:

Donald Trump sounded like he would fire Secretary of State Rice if he got the chance - calling her a “b——” last night during a speech in front of 8,000 people at the Javits Center. Trump, star of “The Apprentice” and a frequent critic of the Bush administration, unleashed his anger at Rice and outgoing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld during a keynote address at the Learning Annex Real Estate & Wealth Expo. “Condoleezza Rice, she’s a lovely woman, but I think she’s a b——,” Trump said to wild applause. “She goes around to other countries and other nations, negotiates with their leaders, comes back and nothing ever happens.

The problem, of course, is not that Trump criticized Rice, but that, when presented with the long, illustrious list of possible complaints, the only one that seems to have stuck out to him was “woman.” Trump could have called her incompetent or a stooge or a peddler of a false war—all accurate and apt descriptors!—but because Trump is incapable of seeing a woman as having any function beyond her gender, he went with “bitch.”

Even on a strictly rhetorical level, saying that someone’s “a lovely woman” but also a “a bitch” doesn’t quite make sense. You could say that someone’s a lovely woman, but a lackey to an administration full of war criminals. That’s fine! The two are not mutually exclusive. For Trump, though, a “bitch” appears to be any woman who doesn’t fit his exacting and archaic standards.

Which is to say, for Trump, and save for maybe Ivanka, a “bitch” is any woman at all.
