Donald Trump has had one of his worst weeks, by all accounts. Although, knowing his fans, none of the insanity he has spewed will do much to hurt their love for the face of hate, xenophobia, Islamophobia, racism and sexism.

Politico reports that women voters who had an "unfavorable" view of Trump top 70% in some polls. The kicker - those poll numbers represent women voter views prior to the "spill the beans" threat against Heidi Cruz and the insane rant regarding "punishing" women who have abortions.

Polls fluctuate as the race unfolds, but the ABC News/Washington Post shows a dramatic turn, particularly with female voters, where his "favorablity" took a nosedive from 2/3 approval to only 43%.

His dead eyed female spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, continues to sing his praises and push the narrative that women really do love the Donald and that he will still win, regardless of the polls.

Oh, and those abortion comments? In his phraseology, "A total disaster." In fact, many anti-choice organizations distanced themselves and made public statements condemning Trump's views.

The "March for Life" forced-birth crowd even posted a tweet condemning Trump's statement:

Oh, and Trump's views on male responsibility for unplanned pregnancies? They have none. Zilch. Zero. Man gets woman pregnant, woman gets abortion, woman exclusively gets punished. What about if a man is in favor of an abortion? What if he PAYS for the abortion? Still, no punishment for the man. Here is what he said to Chris Matthews during this week's town hall:

MATTHEWS: What about the guy that gets her pregnant? Is he responsible under the law for these abortions? Or is he not responsible for an abortion?

TRUMP: Well, it hasn't -- it hasn't -- different feelings, different people. I would say no.

MATTHEWS: Well, they're usually involved.

Trump is the 2016 Presidential Republican Frontrunner, but let's not forget that when it comes to forced birth anti-abortion stands, all three Republicans are equally bad. It's just that Trump says out loud what they all stand for: forced birth for pregnant women regardless of circumstances, and zero consequences for men who make them so. Misogyny, thy party is Republican.
