Helpful Hints for Donald Trump!

[Content Note: Misogyny.]

I've got a new piece up at BNR in which I offer some helpful hints to Donald Trump on how to talk to and about women, because I am nothing if not CHARITABLE:
At a recent rally, Donald introduced Arizona governor Jan Brewer by saying: "She's an amazing person. And, you know, it's not nice to say about a woman, but you are tough. Aren't you? Huh? She is tough. She's smart."

I don't know why Donald imagines it's "not nice" to describe a woman as tough — and he doesn't seem to know, either.
When asked why it is "not nice" to say that a woman is tough, Trump's spokeswoman forwarded this comment from him: "She's tough and she's smart and she was a great Governor of Arizona."
Poor Donald. So confused about how to talk to and about women.
Click through to read the whole thing—and hang on for that last line, because it's a doozy! *wink*
