Donald Trump Attacked 6 Black Women in 3 Days: ‘Nasty,’ ‘Loser,’ ‘Racist Question’ and ‘Stupid Question’

President Donald Trump, who defended himself against claims of racism just this week, has attacked six prominent black women in the three days since the midterm elections that resulted in Democrats taking House control from the Republicans.

Trump challenged the women’s intelligence and in a degrading tone called one “nasty” and a “loser.” He also said he was being asked a “racist question” and a “stupid question.”

The women ranged from journalists to an election official, a politician and a former first lady.

Here is what Trump said about the women:

Michelle Obama

During a gathering with reporters Friday morning, Trump was asked to comment on former first lady Michelle Obama’s forthcoming memoir, Becoming, in which she writes that she will “never forgive” Trump for pushing the “birther” conspiracy theory that falsely claimed her husband was not born in the United States. “Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk,” she wrote.

“Oh, Michelle Obama said that? I haven’t seen it,” Trump commented, before accusing the former first lady of drumming up controversy for money.

“I guess she wrote a book, she got paid a lot of money to write a book, and they always insist that you come up with controversial—well, I’ll give you some controversy back,” Trump said.

“I’ll never forgive him [Barack Obama] for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly.… What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you,” Trump said, pointing to reporters. “I’ll never forgive him for what he did in many other ways, which I’ll talk to you about in the future.”

April Ryan

Trump on Friday called April Ryan, a veteran White House correspondent, Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and CNN contributor, “nasty” and a “loser.” This added to a number of demeaning comments he has made about her in the past.

“I watch her get up, I mean, you talk about somebody that’s a loser,” Trump said. “She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing. She gets publicity and then she gets a pay raise, or she gets a contract with, I think, CNN. But she’s very nasty, and she shouldn’t be, she shouldn’t be.”
