Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Misogyny.]

"All of the men—we're petrified to speak to women anymore! We may raise our voice— You know what? The women get it better than we do, folks! All right? They get it better than we do!"—Donald Trump, shouting nonsense at a rally.

Note the construction here: "The women get it better than we do, folks." We. Meaning men. He's talking about how much better women have it, while talking past the women in his crowd like they're not even there.
