With the massive wins on Super Tuesday in the primaries of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Rhode Island, following a sweeping victory in New York, Donald Trump is switching to the general election mode. And so is Hillary Clinton, by winning comprehensively all above primaries except Rhode Island, after her New York victory. In his victory speech Trump unleashed another one of his beauties that makes everybody rub their eyes and ears in disbelief and shake their heads to check if they are awake or dreaming. "The only card [Hillary Clinton] has is the woman's card. She's got nothing else to offer and frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote,” he said at a press conference after his string of victories. “The only thing she's got going is the woman's card, and the beautiful thing is, women don't like her." Trump was, predictably, accused of outrageous sexism over his comments over the social media and elsewhere. Mr Trump is now more than three-quarters of the way towards clinching the Republican nomination for president. With 950 delegates, he has 77 per cent of the delegates needed to win the nomination. He needs to win slightly more than half of the remaining delegates to get there, and claimed after his latest wins that the race was "over". "It's over. As far as I'm concerned it's over," he said. Hitting back hard during her own Tuesday night victory speech, Clinton embraced allegations she's playing the "women's card." "Now, the other day, Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, ‘woman card,'" Clinton said. “Well, if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!” Hillary Clinton is almost there as far as becoming the Democratic nominee is concerned, and as she and Trump switch into the general election mode the war between the two has only just begun. However, many believed Trump had yet again made a nasty attack that would open him up to a lot of criticism. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat and Trump critic on social media, slammed his comments as sexist. “Donald Trump clearly feels threatened by Secretary Clinton’s qualifications to be president, so he’s attacking Hillary Clinton for being a woman,” said Warren. “That’s what weak men do. It is an old story, and I don’t think the American voters will fall for it.” By Wednesday, women were flooding social media with ironic comments about how little benefit their own women’s cards were delivering, and the website WomanCard.org was registered and linked to Clinton’s official campaign site. By Thursday, Clinton’s campaign was offering new donors official “woman cards” and Trump was doubling down on his comments dismissing Clinton. “The primary thing that she has going is that she’s a woman,” he said on the “Today” show, “and she’s playing that card like I have never seen anybody play it before.” Close this
