Donald Trump Tries His Hand At 'Man' Sexism

Trump really stretches the norms of 'isms' with this one.

Since Donald Trump's campaign is based on nativism and racism, he's been rooting around the bowels of his limited language skills to come up with an excuse to say, "everybody does it so I'm not a bad person."

In this case, Hillary Clinton made an offhand remark to Jake Tapper when she said, "I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak. "I'm not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try and provoke me."

Pretty quickly, the Clinton campaign issued an apology:

“Divisive language has no place in our politics,” tweeted Amanda Renteria, Clinton’s national political director. “Hillary Clinton meant no disrespect to Native Americans. She wants this election to be about lifting people up, not tearing them down.”

But The Donald saw this as an opportunity to try his hand at some weird kabuki on "man sexism."

"I thought it was a terrible answer -- and what was the word? Go ahead, she used a certain word. 'Men off the reservation.' And I said to myself that's a horrible expression."

"Now if I would have used that expression -- maybe in the opposite form -- it would have been a front page story. She uses it and gets away with it. That's a very demeaning remark to men in my opinion."

He continued, "I don't even know, was she referring to her husband? I think she was referring to her husband."

Trump also made the case that she's unable to keep America safe because she is a woman. I've never heard any Republican hypocrite cry about sexist statements made about men.

I'm sure the Republican women on Fox News' Outnumbered will agree that what she said about men was just so horrible, but it's idiotic at its core.

On Monday, Trump told CNN that "Indians were going wild over her comment."

Was he saying that "Indians" were whooping it up?
