While appearing on Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post blogger Chris Cillizza whined that GOP nominee Donald Trump referred to Democrat Hillary Clinton as “she,” inferring that Trump was sexist for doing so, The Hill reported.
According to The Hill:
Cilizza, also an MSNBC contributor, argued on “Morning Joe” that Trump “kept referring to Hillary Clinton as ‘she’ and ‘her,’ which was a concerted strategy. I’m not sure why.”
“He needs independents, he needs women,” Cillizza explained. “There’s just not much there last night that I think would convince you if you were not for him previously, particularly if you’re a woman.”
In looking at the official debate transcript from Sunday night’s debate in St. Louis, it appears both candidates continually referred to the other in pronoun form.
In Clinton’s first answer to a question of the evening, for instance, she refers to Trump as “he,” “his” or “him” on eight different occasions.
So what pronoun is Trump supposed to use, Chris?
He also attacked the debate audience, the Hill added:
Cillizza also criticized the debate audience, which was comprised of undecided voters, in a blog post today, calling their questions “terrible.”
“When the audience did get a chance to ask their questions, those questions were, well, terrible,” writes Cillizza. “‘Can you be devoted to all people as president?’ Huh? ‘Name one thing you like about your opponent?’ What?” he asks incredulously.
“Look, I get the desire to have average people ask questions,” Cillizza argues. “But the questions have to be better, or else it’s a total waste of time.”
Translation: How dare those unwashed rubes ask Clinton questions…
