misogyny, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico and an outspoken critic of the President, has appeared on television wearing a shirt with the word “NASTY” emblazoned on it. In an interview on Univision with Jorge Ramos, the famous Mexican-American journalist, Cruz explains her rationale for her decidedly anti-Trump apparel.
Reminiscent of the presidential debate during which Trump called his democratic opponent Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman,” it seems that the President has not curbed his misogynistic attacks. That moment quickly became a rallying cry for progressives and those opposed to the Trump campaign. The iconic “Nasty Woman” shirt, created by Google Ghost, instantly went viral and was basically ubiquitous at the worldwide Women’s Marches that took place on January 21, 2017, the day after Trump’s inauguration.
“When someone is bothered by someone claiming lack of drinking water, lack of medicine for the sick and lack of food for the hungry, that person has problems too deep to be explained in an interview. What is really nasty is that anyone would turn their back on the Puerto Rican people,” Cruz said in Spanish.
While Trump continues to hurl attacks at those – particularly women – who don’t agree with him, the President’s pettiness only serves to further decimate what dwindling credibility the White House has left.
