In the latest installment of "Trump's minions saying stupid stuff" we bring you Tana Goertz, a senior adviser to Donald Trump. After last night, when Trump pulls the "woman card" on Hillary Clinton, Tana goes all in on why Clinton is winning the woman vote.

Does she attribute it to her decades of public service? Her background as a lawyer? Her 8 years serving as First Lady? Her term as a New York Senator? Her term as Secretary of State?

No. Of course not. She says that women vote for Hillary Clinton, because they 'they’re just going in [to the polls] and saying 'I guess I should vote for her because she’s a woman.'

Wow, just wow. So we only vote for her because we both have uteruses? Isn't that like many conservative Republicans refusing to vote for Obama in 2008 and 2012 just because he is black? Or men standing by other white male Republican speakers of the House who have admitted to sexually abusing boys just because they are also white male Republicans?

Bad analogy, Tana.

Can you help us out?
