This past Tuesday, Mar. 22, BuzzFeed News released a video called “Trump vs. Obama:  Talking About Women.”  The news source compiled clips from both politicians that showed them publicly talking about women and young girls.  The differences really shouldn’t be surprising.

President Obama, with two daughters of his own, wants the best for young girls and women in the U.S., saying, “The idea that my daughters wouldn’t have the same opportunities as somebody’s sons…Well, that’s unacceptable.”

Donald Trump, on the other hand, tells a reporter that she wouldn’t have her job if she weren’t pretty.  Trump has made some off-color remarks about women in the past, including more disturbing ones regarding his daughter, Ivanka.

Women’s rights and issues are always a huge topic in the real of politics, especially during election season.  I think there are some people who should take a step back and re-evaluate their political stances, especially if they’re supporting Trump.
