    NEW YORK — While celebrating sweeping victories in five primaries Tuesday night, Donald Trump mocked the qualifications of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and suggested she was playing "the women's card" to her advantage in the presidential race.

    “Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she's got going is the women's card,” Trump said during a news conference at Trump Tower. “And the beautiful thing is, women don't like her."

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s wife, Mary Pat, who was standing behind Trump, appeared to react negatively as he made the comments.

    The episode is the latest in a long line of Trump remarks widely seen as sexist or offensive toward women, and it underscores the serious difficulties Trump will face in garnering support from female voters if he is the GOP nominee.

    Any one else notice that while Hillary panders to appoint 1/2 of "her cabinet" (happy wish) based on gender that she appears to be looking more like a man? Weird...

    Women don't like Trump and men don't like Clinton, but Trump's negatives are higher than Clinton's. Clinton will shred The Donald in a debate on foreign policy.

    Trump's inability to debate and his vulgarity are major drags on GOP hopes of winning the White House in 2016. Trump does not have the common touch and he demonizes anyone who disagrees with him or anyone who asks him a tough question. Trump becomes tiresome after a few weeks, unless you already are a New Yorker and used to his actions.

    I'll tell you what's going to happen when Hillary tries to debate Trump. He is going call her out to tick her off resulting in making the witch come out and her popularity from women and men will crash.

    Too bad Hillary is not that inexperienced and dumb. Just look at how she turned Trump's taunt about the "woman card" into a plus moment for her.

    Come on, those women hackling behind her were already Hillary-ites – the subject was that she was promising to appoint ½ of her cabinet to be women and Trump was calling her out on the pandering. Most the rest of the public sees through this propaganda clip you presented.

    I'm merely showing you that Hillary is not going to roll over with Trump's attacks. She will have a response for whatever Trump attempts.

    Yeah, and that wasn't debating, that was respond to Trump in her victory speech. She had time to think and formulate her response. Still, it was in liberal code - "women's health" = abortion rights.

    I don't think the election will go down by gender but the victor will have to run an unconventional campaign. I find few people like either nominee.

    Women (in general) don't vote Republican. There was something like a 20 point gender gap in the 2012 election, and it wasn't because Romney was vulgar.

    Trump was right on this one. The only thing Hillary brings to the table is the ability to say "first woman president."

    Bruce Jenner said that he used the Ladies Washroom in the Trump Tower earlier this week and he thanked Trump for that. Then Trump told Hoosiers that serial rapist Mike Tyson has endorsed him so I guess that a lot of women will vote against Trump.

    Just a point of clarification: single women don't vote republican. Republicans get 15%more married women's votes then Democrats do. Trump will not get that 15 point Boost in this election however. One of the many many reason Trump supporters are really supporting the Democrats. #NEVERTRUMP

    Good point. I think the whole conversation started off with some large generalizations. Women this women that, but they are not a monolithic voting block.
