Hillary Clinton’s response to Donald Trump’s call for women to be punished for having abortions highlighted why she will destroy Trump if the two frontrunners meet in November.
After Trump called for women to be punished for having abortions, Clinton personally responded on Twitter:
Just when you thought it couldn't get worse. Horrific and telling. -H https://t.co/Qi8TutsOw9

Hillary Clinton’s response highlighted why she will own Trump if they face off in the general election. Trump is making it up as he goes along while Clinton is the most experienced candidate in the race. Clinton was able to take Trump apart in a single tweet. Her response was simple, but it cut to the heart of the questions surrounding Trump.
Former Sec. of State Clinton was correct. The entire Trump/Matthews exchange was telling. Donald Trump could answer Chris Matthews original question, so he tried to dodge by questioning Matthews about his religion. When that failed and when he was pushed, Trump admitted that he wants to punish women who have abortions.
Trump’s response was telling in its cold misogynistic sexism. Trump also demonstrated zero knowledge of the abortion issue and the temperament of a child. Under the slightest bit of pressure, Trump blurted out a vague answer that when he was forced to refine it displayed all of his weaknesses as a candidate.
A day after defending his campaign manager who was arrested for battery by attacking the female journalist who was the victim, Donald Trump managed to make things worse for Republicans. Trump isn’t even the Republican nominee yet, but he continues to dig the hole deeper for the GOP in November.
Hillary Clinton is a globally respected figure and the most admired woman in the world. Republicans are making a mistake that will destroy their party if they think that Donald Trump’s ignorance and sexism stands a chance against a Clinton. The Republican Party has spent years trying to make the 2016 election about Clinton’s character, but it Trump’s unfitness for the presidency that looks like it will be the defining question of the campaign, and there is no person who is more qualified to tear politically Donald Trump limb from limb than former Sec. of State Clinton.
