President Donald Trump has a long history of harshly criticizing women. From the time he launched his presidential campaign in 2015, and in the years before and after, Trump has made clear how he feels about women — especially the ones who get under his skin. These are some of his worst insults.
You can now add “horseface” to the list of insults President Donald Trump has hurled at women publicly, which also includes “fat pigs,” “slobs,” and “dogs,” to name a few.
Trump earned some criticism on Tuesday for calling the adult-film actress Stormy Daniels “Horseface,” but his history of making brusque remarks about women’s appearances goes back decades to his time as owner of the Miss Universe beauty pageant.
Trump’s latest insult directed at Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, comes after a judge threw out the adult-film star’s defamation lawsuit against Trump. Daniels says she had a sexual affair with Trump in 2006. Trump denies this.
When the infamous “Access Hollywood” tapethreatened to derail Trump’s election campaign in 2016, Trump shrugged off the remarks as “locker room talk.”
The majority of US women disapprove of Trump’s job performance as president and say they prefer Democratic candidates in the November midterm elections, The Washington Post reported in July citing an NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll.
Here are the 11 most insulting things Trump has said about women:
Trump said of Hillary Clinton: “When she walked in front of me, believe me, I wasn’t impressed.”
It’s unclear whether Trump was talking about Hillary Clinton’s physical appearance when he made this remark in front of his supporters at a campaign rally in 2016.
Trump called Clinton a “nasty woman” during one heated presidential debate in 2016.
When Clinton called Trump a sexist leading up to the November election, Trump responded that he wasn’t and called her an “enabler” of her husband’s affairs.
Clinton has recently came under fire from women’s rights groups by saying that her husband Bill Clinton’s extra-marital affair with then 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power.
Trump said of his former Republican primary competitor, Carly Fiorina: “Look at that face, would anyone vote for that?”
Trump, during a heated election campaign in 2016 frequently launched rhetorical broadsides at opponents, but seemed to hit harder at the women in the field, usually targeting their appearance.
He demonstrated that with his then-Republican primary competitor, Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of the Hewlett-Packard company.
In the interview with Rolling Stone, Trump took a tone of “disgust” describing Fiorina’s appearance during a television interview.
“Look at that face,” he said, according to Rolling Stone. “Would anyone vote for that?”
Trump his former White House aide, Omarosa Manigault Newman, “That dog,” after she was ousted from the administration.
Trump the former White House aide, Omarosa Manigault Newman, a “crazed, crying lowlife” and a “dog” in August in response to her saying Trump had exhibited signs of dementia and that she had proof he previously used the N-word.
Trump adamantly refused ever using the racial slur, saying that word wasn’t in his vocabulary.
Omarosa said she had plans to release a number of secret recordings from inside the White House that would expose Trump as a racist and a sexist.
One tape that recorded her being fired by White House chief of staff John Kelly shows that Kelly was worried that Newman would reveal harmful information about the Trump administration after her departure.
“He has absolutely no respect for women, for African-Americans, as evidenced by him instructing the chief of staff to lock me for two hours in the Situation Room, to harass me, to threaten me and say that things could get very ugly for me and that there would be damage to my reputation,” Newman told MSNBC in August.
Trump said of Megyn Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”
Trump made these remarks about TV host Megyn Kelly back when Kelly hosted a primetime program on the Fox News Channel.
Kelly moderated a presidential debate in 2015 during which she challenged Trump with questions he said were too tough. Kelly bluntly asked Trump about claims that he was sexist.
When Kelly pressed Trump about the incendiary he has made toward women in the past, which included calling women “fat pigs” and “slobs,” Trump curtly responded, “only Rosie O’Donnell.”
After the debate, Trump called Kelly a “bimbo” and “highly overrated.”
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever,” he said.
Trump later clarified that he was referring to Kelly bleeding from her nose.
Trump said of supermodel Heidi Klum: “Sadly, she’s no longer a 10.”
Trump said in an interview with The New York Times in August 2015 that the German supermodel was no “longer a 10.”
Klum posted a video in response, shrugging off the insult.
Trump called the 1996 Miss Universe beauty pageant winner Alicia Machado: “Disgusting” and “Miss Piggy.”
Machado, who won the 1996 Miss Universe pageant that was owned by Trump at the time, said he called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” after the contest.
Hillary Clinton, then the 2016 Democratic candidate for president, accused Trump of calling the Venezuelan model “fat.” This only caused Trump to double down on his previous remarksabout Machado, saying that “she was the winner and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem for us.”
Trump also claimed, without evidence, that Machado appeared in a sex tape. He also accused Clinton of personally helping Machado become a US citizen so “she could use her in a debate.”
Machado responded in September 2016 by confirming that Trump used to humiliate her for her appearance when she was young model and that it was likely he did the same to other women in the pageant and beyond.
“Just like what happened to me, it’s clear through the years that his actions and conduct have been repeated with other women through the decades,” Machado said.
Trump said of Arianna Huffington: “Extremely unattractive (both inside and out).”
Trump claimed in 2015 that Arianna Huffington, the editor and cofounder of HuffPost, got divorced in 1997 because of her appearance. Huffington was married to a former congressman who came out as gay after their separation.
Ariana Huffington “is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision,” Trump said.
Trump said of Cher: “Stop with the bad plastic surgery.”
Trump attacked the singer’s looks in March 2012after Cher criticized former Republican presidential candidate Mit Romney, saying that she should stop “with the bad plastic surgery and nasty statements.”
Cher had words for Trump in an interview with Variety published in September, saying that any “thinking person” must be worried about the political climate in the US and asking themselves “How the f— is this happening?”
Trump said of actress Anne Hathaway after she and her then-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, broke up: “So when he had plenty of money, she liked him. But then after that, not as good, right?
Trump accused actress Anne Hathaway of being a gold digger over breaking up with her boyfriend Raffaello Follieri in 2008 in an interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush.
“She hasn’t remained very loyal to him, has she?” Trump told Bush “So when he had plenty of money, she liked him, but then after that, not as good, right?”
Trump called California Rep. Maxine Waters: “An extraordinarily low IQ person.”
Trump called Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters an “extraordinarily low IQ person” in June after she told her supporters to harass Trump administration officials in public.
Waters, who has called for Trump’s impeachment, responded to the president’s IQ remarks by saying “If Mueller doesn’t get him, Stormy Daniels will.”
Trump mocked Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who accused his then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault
Speaking to his supporters at a campaign rally earlier this month, Trump mocked Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford had trouble remembering some details of the day she said Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school.
“‘I don’t know. I don’t know,'” Trump said, mocking Ford at a Mississippi rally on October 2. “‘Upstairs? Downstairs? Where was it?’ I don’t know. But I had one beer. That’s the only thing I remember.'”
Trump has been accused of various forms of sexual misconduct by at least 22 women.
