Donald Trump got into a heated debate with CNN's Chris Cuomo about the use of his harsh language and how he's been applying it to Hillary Clinton and China and then complaining to Fox News that she was "inappropriate" and mean to him and all "men" in the world.

Trump didn't like being forced to defend his tactics and although Donald didn't call out Cuomo directly, since he's been on with him throughout this campaign season, but he slyly slimed the network Cuomo works for by calling it "the Clinton network."

Cuomo said, "You also said something, that I thought was curious, to FOX yesterday. You said I think Hillary Clinton saying that to me or about me is inappropriate. How can you find her saying that inappropriate, but saying that China's raping the U.S. is -- that's appropriate for you to say that she's playing the woman card. That that's appropriate for you to say, but her saying she knows how to deal with men who go off the reservation, that's inappropriate. How do you see that?"

Trump replied, "Well, she's taking -- she has been taking a lot of heat for that statement, not from you, obviously, but they do call it the Clinton network. But she has taken, from others, a lot of heat having to do with that statement and I think it's a very harsh statement."

He continued, "It's basically, you know, like I can handle men. Don't worry about me, I can handle men. If somebody said that -- if I made that statement about women there'd be front-page headlines."

Cuomo didn't respond to that jab by Trump, but that was outrageous in of itself, since CNN books, numerous very offensive Trump supporters for almost every segment they do when they have sides debating.

The argument continued and Trump stepped into another pile of poo.

CUOMO: You said all she's got is that she's a woman.

TRUMP: I think it's a very demeaning statement. Now, I won't even bring up the fact that the Indians have gone wild on that statement.You know that, OK? The Indians have said that that statement is a disastrous statement and they want a retraction. I'm not going to get into that, but that has taken place.

He did bring up the fact, even if it is an incredible exaggeration.

He's not as smooth a liar as Cruz, but he lies and exaggerates constantly. Trump always brings up topics that he says he doesn't want to discuss when he is discussing them.

CUOMO: Well, you just did get into it. I had not really heard that.

TRUMP: I'm not bringing that up. I'm saying that has been taking place, big league.

CUOMO: You did bring it up. You did just bring it up.

And then after Cuomo cornered him again, he preposterously said this:

TRUMP: Look, women want strength, they want security, they want to have strong military, they want to know that our country is being protected. They want to know about women's' issues -- women's health issues. I'm going to do a better job for women than Hillary can do.

Riiight. The ladies need a real man to protect them and take care of all their health care needs.
