Days after new sexual assault allegations were lodged against President Donald Trump (in addition to the 25 existing allegations), Second Lady Karen Pence spoke at a Women for Trump event in Minnesota. There, she claimed the man who bragged about forcibly grabbing women “by the p***y” had “empowered women like no other.”
Pence was speaking with the President’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump and Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany.
Pence addressed women who felt on the fence about voting for Trump, assuring them:
“The president has empowered women like no other. He cares about meeting them where it counts: in their pocketbooks…. Look at the job rate for women. You have to vote for Donald Trump.”
Polls have indicated that Trump’s approval rating has dropped in recent months.
Many found the Second Lady’s comments ridiculous.
What side of history do you wish to be on Mrs Pence, your god is watching?!?!?

“The president has empowered women like no other”
WTH? You are now an accessory to all sexual attacks Trump has committed over the years! Every woman he has raped and fondled just relived the experience due to your pathological, non-Christian lies! DISGRACEFUL! @SecondLady

Karen Pence attended “Women for Trump” in St. Paul. According to Katie Rogers, WH correspondent for NYT, Karen said she likes Trump for the way he respects his daughters and he has “empowered women like no other.”~ It's what he does to women when nobody is watching @KarenPence

She must be praying for impeachment at the same time spreading propaganda.

Is “pocketbook” Evangelical-speak for another “p” word?

In fact, numerous women find Trump and his administration to be a direct threat to the validity of their existences.
Women are suffering under the Trump administration. I promise you I will do everything in my power to fight back against these dangerous attacks. https://t.co/D4dJAXCQ19

After Trump was elected many black students were assualted. A black girl I knew asked if anyone would walk with her on campus & I did bc I was scared myself (as a woman) but I knew that as a black women she had more reason to be scared to walk alone than I did. #AntiBlackISU

The Trump Administration's dangerous #TitleX gag rule is already undermining and limiting access to care for millions of low-income patients and women. But we won't stop fighting back. #ProtectXhttps://t.co/YrOMFsH3jH

Trump frequently attacks women on Twitter, referring to them with names like “dog” and “horseface.”
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!

When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!

The President will go to Minnesota today to speak at a rally in the district of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Trump has told Omar, an American citizen and Muslim Somalian refugee, to “go back” to where she came from, as well as repeatedly accusing her of hating Jews.
