Donald Trump has accused Hillary Clinton of playing "the woman's card" before, but never was he as blunt as he was on Tuesday night while answering questions from reporters following his rash of major primary victories across the Northeast.
"Well, I think the only card she has is the woman's card," Trump said. "She's got nothing else going on. And frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she's got going is the women's vote."
"And the beautiful thing," Trump went on, "is that women don't like her." Earlier in the night, Trump also touted that he would do "far more for women than Hillary Clinton will ever do."

Even before Trump gave his speech, however, Clinton had addressed Trump's accusations. "If fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the 'woman card,' then deal me in," she said. Jeva Lange
