CLUELESS: Karen Pence Praises Trump’s Treatment Of Young Women

Second lady Karen Pence faced fierce backlash on Twitter after she reportedly praised President Donald Trump for how he treats young women.

Pence, who is married to Vice President Mike Pence, on Wednesday told a “Women for Trump” discussion in St. Paul, Minnesota, that she liked Trump’s respect for his daughters and claimed he’d “empowered women like no other,” according to The New York Times’ White House correspondent Katie Rogers.

Critics were quick to call out Pence for praising Trump.

They reminded her of Trump’s long history of insulting women, his comments boasting of sexual assault on the now-infamous 2005 “Access Hollywood” bus ride, and the raft of sexual misconduct and assault allegations against the president.
