Twitter Doesn't Believe Donald Trump's Women's Day Tweets

In the early hours of International Women’s Day and the Day Without a Woman Strike, President Trump posted two celebratory tweets to his personal Twitter account.

Given the display of uncharacteristic restraint, the internet wasn’t convinced.

One internet sleuth noted that the the Tweet was posted from an iPhone, which suggests it may have been sent from a staff member.

Others simply didn't believe the tone and message jibed with the president's history. 

"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee wasted no time in reminding the president of his controversial and often lewd remarks about women.

 

U.S. House Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called out the President via Twitter for his now-infamous statement, “Grab her by the pussy," which came from a leaked 2005 recording of a conversation between Trump and then "Access Hollywood" anchor Billy Bush. “ I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women],” Trump said. “And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”

 

"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling also reminded Twitter of Trump’s 2005 remark by placing it alongside one of his International Women’s Day tweets.  

On Wednesday night, Senator Elizabeth Warren, an unabashed critic of Donald Trump, appeared on MSNBC’s Live with Stephanie Ruhle. When she was asked how she would reply to the president’s tweet, Warren said, “Talk is cheap. Put your money where your mouth is. Give us some of the rules and regulations that will be helpful to this economy, helpful to women, helpful to our families, helpful to our communities.”
