A running list of all the worst things Donald Trump has said about women. It’s long.

There are almost too many to count—but we tried.

Election Day is around the corner. More Americans will vote in this election than ever before, and casting a ballot is our last chance to stand up for our values and show that Donald Trump is unqualified and temperamentally unfit to be Commander-in-Chief. We need you to spread the word to your friends. So, read this article, share it—and make a plan to vote today.


It’s hard to imagine a presidential candidate who would be worse for women than Donald Trump.

The irony is not lost on women that the first female nominee for president faces an opponent who’s spent his entire life disrespecting women: insulting our looks, fat-shaming beauty contestants, and treating us like objects in his self-aggrandizing world.

With more and more stories coming out every day about how Trump treats women, it’s hard to keep up with all the insults and demeaning comments.

We tried to collect them all. Note: this list of 140 is far from exhaustive.

  1. “A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.”
  2. “I have days where, if I come home—and I don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist—but when I come home and dinner’s not ready, I go through the roof.
  3. “Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers.”
  4. “The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye—or perhaps another body part.”
  5. On a former model: “Sadly, she’s no longer a 10.
  6. “What I say is what I say, and honestly, Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on how you’ve treated me, but I won’t do that.”
  7. “For a man to be successful, he needs support at home, just like my father had from my mother, not someone who is always griping and bitching.”
  8. “I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing.”
  9. “Let’s look at a few things that seem to be working. We can start out by making it clear to teenage mothers that they aren’t going to get public assistance unless they jump through some pretty small hoops. Making them live in group homes makes sense.”
  10. “Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world. I would say to myself, thinking about me as a boy from Queens, ‘Can you believe what I am getting?’”
  11. “I have really given a lot of women great opportunity. Unfortunately, after they are a star, the fun is over for me.”
  12. “There’s nothing I love more than women, but they’re really a lot different than portrayed. They are far worse than men, far more aggressive … .”
  13. On women: “You have to treat ’em like s—.
  14. “You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write, as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”

  16. “I don’t [change diapers]. It’s not my thing.”
  17. “Nobody cares about the talent [in beauty pageants]. There’s only one talent you care about, and that’s the look talent. You don’t give a shit if a girl can play a violin like the greatest violinist in the world. You want to know, what does she look like?”
  18. “I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?”
  19. “Pregnancy is never—it’s a wonderful thing for the woman. It’s a wonderful thing for the husband. It’s certainly an inconvenience for a business.”

  24. On a beauty pageant winner: “She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds, and she went to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat.”

  26. On responding—in 2016—to his criticism of a beauty pageant winner’s weight: “She gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.”

  38. “Some women are highly aggressive and they want sex, no different from men and sometimes worse.”
  39. “Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred. Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.”

  41. “What is it at 35? It’s called check-out time.”

  50. “Well, I’ll tell you the funniest is that before a show, I’ll go backstage, and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.”
  51. On going backstage at his beauty pageants while contestants are changing: “You know, the dresses. ‘Is everyone OK?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible-looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”

I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there and she was married.Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the p—-. You can do anything.”
  55. “There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her.”
  56. “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me—consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”

  94. “If you’re going to be a concert pianist, you’re most likely not going to look like the girls from Miss USA. … It’s tough, you have these girls, and they do have some pretty good talent, but then they get on and you say, ‘Wow.’” — Howard Stern Show, 6/17/14
