Hundreds seized on his call to honor “the critical role of women here in America and around the world” by referencing his offensive hot mic comments on the infamous 2005 bus ride with former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush.

They also recalled that image of Trump signing an anti-abortion executive order, surrounded entirely by white men.

Here’s a sampling of the responses so far:
