“Hillary, when you complain about ‘a penchant for sexism,’ who are you referring to,” Trump tweeted. “I have great respect for women. BE CAREFUL!”
 
 
The tweet follows another from Trump earlier Wednesday, where he warned the favorite to win the Democratic primary nod to “be careful … as you play the war on women or women being degraded card.”

Trump was referring to a Clinton rally Tuesday in Keota, Iowa, where a young girl who said she had asthma asked how to deal with bullies. 
 
Clinton told the girl she'd had a lot of “terrible things” said about her and later added that the country “shouldn't let anybody bully his way into the presidency," in a seeming reference to Trump.
 
The incident came after Trump brought controversy Monday night by saying Clinton “got schlonged” in the 2008 presidential election and made reference to the “disgusting” fact that Clinton missed a brief part of Saturday’s Democratic presidential debate to go to the restroom.
