“I liked when he acknowledged there was the largest number of women,” Pelosi told reporters.
Trump, however, “forgot to acknowledge it’s only 15, what is it, 15 Republicans and 91 Democratic women in the Congress of the United States on the House side,” the Speaker told said. “So it was like weird you’re bringing this up,” she added. “And I loved the way the women just rose to the occasion.”

Does Trump realize opposition to his policies are the reason women are taking over? Probably not.
What he doesn’t acknowledge of course is that these women he ’s lauding got elected to stand up against him and his horrific agenda.
And they will be part of taking him and the GOP down in 2020. #SOTU

Yes, Trump just took credit for electing a record number of women to Congress….And he's right about that. https://t.co/1Q7MVVing6

Right. And he definitely helped them land their jobs. The irony is on him.

Trump deserves credit for the influx of women to Congress. They all ran to oppose him. (And virtually all are Dems.)

Trump taking credit for there being more women in Congress is like the Fyre Fest guy saying "You're welcome for the documentaries!!" #SOTU

Still, the advancement of women is good for everyone.
One part where Trump was right tonight:
There are more than 100 women in Congress now and he can take a bit of credit for that…#StateoftheUnion2019

Well, one could argue that more women were elected because women despise him, so, I guess he could take backhanded credit for that

I think there ARE more women because of Trump, but because of his attitudes towards women. They are in Congress because they oppose his worldview, and his tawdry personality.

They’re trolling him. 😂

They’re mocking him, but he doesn’t realize it.
