President Donald Trump ignored his own track record this International Women's Day. And the internet wasted no time grilling him for the hypocrisy.

trumpPresident Donald Trump wasted no time on this special day, tweeting what he and his fans may have seen as a message of support for the International Women's Day.

Moments later, the internet went ablaze with criticism, showing the president that words cannot erase actions.

Many of the responses seen on the social media site involved users pointing out to his record of lewd comments and questionable behavior.

Here are the highlights:
