Donald Trump rips Hillary Clinton for 'playing the women's card'

Donald Trump has added Hillary Clinton's use of the "women's card" to his list of irritations with the Democratic frontrunner. Following a weekend of slamming former President Bill Clinton for the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, Trump took Hillary Clinton's accusations of sexism head on, tweeting Monday that "If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!"

Last week, Clinton told The Des Moines Register that, "[Trump] has to answer for what he says, and I assume that others will make the larger point about his language. It's not the first time he's demonstrated a penchant for sexism. Again, I'm not sure anybody's surprised that he keeps pushing the envelope."

Trump took issue with Clinton's statement on Sunday's Fox and Friends as well, telling the hosts, "She's got to be careful, you know. It's got to be fair. And we all have to fight fairly and we have to fight... for the good of the country, for the good of the people, for the good of everybody, but we have to fight fairly."

He added, "And she's playing the woman's card, and it's like, give me a break."
