So Weird That Barely Anyone Showed Up to the Women for Trump Event at the RNC

It’s no secret that Donald Trump has spewed some vile words about women over the years. Along with broadly sexist remarks, he’s spoken out against maternity leave and women in the workplace — and some of his rhetoric is eerily similar to that of a men’s-rights activist. And yet, there is still a Women for Trump movement. It just (shockingly) doesn’t seem to be very popular.


Journalist Laurie Penny, in Cleveland covering the Republican National Convention, tweeted out a photo of the turnout for a Women for Trump event on Monday — and the room is nearly empty. “The people in this picture are journalists and one media intern,” she wrote.

Another journalist, Oliver Laughland, photographed the room during the Q&A portion, adding, “crowd so small the panel are asking themselves most of the questions.” Sad!

Maybe everyone was off buying their anti-Hillary pins?
