Hillary fundraising with ‘woman card’

Hillary Clinton, Woman Card

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is using comments GOP rival Donald Trump made earlier this week to raise money, asking supporters for donations in exchange for a “woman card.”

After winning Republican contests Tuesday, Trump took aim at Clinton, saying she’s only doing well in the Democratic primaries because of her gender.

{mosads}“Donald Trump has been saying ‘the woman’s card’ is all Hillary has going for her,” read a fundraising email from the Clinton campaign sent out Friday morning. 

“We’ve been hearing from supporters all over the country that they’d like a “woman card” of their very own — to display proudly on a fridge or pull out of their wallet every time they run into someone who says women who support Hillary must not be using our brains.”

Supporters who donate $1 or more will receive a pink “Official Hillary for America Woman Card” that reads at the bottom “Congratulations! You’re in the majority.” 

Trump on Thursday refused to back down from his comments, saying in an interview with the “Today” show that “without the woman’s card, Hillary would not even be a viable person to even run for city council positions.”

“I think the only thing she has going for her is the fact that she’s a woman,” Trump said. “She has done a terrible job in so many ways.” 

Clinton, in her victory speech Tuesday in Philadelphia after she won four out of five Northeastern primary contests, gave a defiant response to Trump.

“The other day, Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, ‘woman card,’”  Clinton said. “Well, if fighting for women’s healthcare and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.”
