Trump’s “Nasty Woman” Comment Has Sparked an Inspiring Hashtag
Another debate, another day spent recovering from all the insane comments Donald Trump made the night before. There were a handful of standout quotes, but the main one that has the internet reeling is the moment he called Hillary a “nasty woman.” Just in case you couldn’t get yourself to sit through round three of the political blood bath, here’s a clip of what Trump said.
Naturally, the internet was NOT happy about the comment. And in classic Twitter fashion, reactions started rolling in.

FOMO that I can't identify as a #NastyWoman tonight but thrilled I can at least vote for one.

But like the last time Donald was caught saying something derogatory towards women (see: #notokay), the Twitterverse has responded not just with witty comments but also with an inspirational new hashtag: #IAmANastyWomanBecause. Scroll through the contributions to the hashtag and you’ll find women stating their accomplishments and why they’re proud to be a woman.

#IAmANastyWomanBecause I educated and a critical thinker, raising a happy child who accepts he can't always have what he wants.
