Women are reminded constantly, in ways both subtle and overt, that our appearances determine our worth. So when Donald Trump body-shamed Alicia Machado (and Rosie O’Donnell), it struck a nerve with women everywhere.
Women who are employed in male-dominated spaces know that being interrupted comes with the territory. So when Trump repeatedly cut off Hillary Clinton during the first presidential debate, people on Twitter recognized the behavior immediately.
And every time Trump brags about how much money he has, America is collectively reminded of our obnoxious neighbor who told us three times he had to pay extra for tinted windows on that flashy new car.
The familiarity of Trump’s sexist, bullying, incorrigible behavior is a real turn-off to many voters ― especially female voters. The candidate is basically the sum of every bad quality that unlikeable men tend to possess: his tone and ~temperament~ are aggressive, he’s obsessed with himself, and he blatantly disregards that women are people.
Trump is the guy who yells at the waitress on a first date. He’s the dude whose road rage lingers 20 minutes after he’s parked. He is a walking YouTube comment that graduated to Twitter troll, slipping “WRONG” into your mentions in response to topics you’re literally an expert on.
Here are 50 tweets that prove Trump is that guy ― you’ll know him when you see him.
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.
