    I’m Such a Nasty Woman

    I do the hard work and know my stuff Unless you live in a media blackout zone somewhere, you know Trump uttered the phrase “such a nasty woman” while Clinton was speaking during the last presidential debate. This lack of self-control on Trump’s part triggered an immediate reaction on social media. Women everywhere embraced the nasty woman meme, tweeting their support of nasty women everywhere. “Nasty woman” becomes the feminist rallying cry Hillary was waiting for https://t.co/g2DPc8mThU via @vox — Laurie Hosken, PHR (@LaurieHosken) October 21, 2016 The day after the debate, Trump complained that Clinton had access to the debate questions ahead of time.
