#RepealThe19th: Trump Fans Don’t Want Women To Vote This Election

Trump supporters began using the misogynistic hashtag after a poll showed the GOP nominee would win by a landslide if only men voted in the election.

The supporters of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, have spawned yet another sexist and utterly disgusting online campaign to make the Y chromosome mandatory at the polling station with hashtag #RepealThe19th — a reference to the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote some 96 years ago.

The controversy started after Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight tweeted a poll showing the media mogul would easily win by a landslide if only men voted. Silver also posted another graph showing that Hillary Clinton would dominate the election if only women voted.


Eric Trump later sent out the male map in a fundraising email in order to inspire supporters.

“We need your help to continue funding our aggressive ad blitzes and our campaign’s get-out-the-vote operation. We’re making huge gains against Crooked Hillary that you can see for yourself,” he wrote of the men-only graph. “We’re not just winning national polls like L.A. Times/USC and Rasmussen, we’re beating back the increasingly desperate Dems in the battleground states, too.”

Thus the hashtag, #RepealThe19th, was born.






Sadly, this is not the first time Trump fans have used the misogynistic hashtag.


However, all the deplorable tweets demanding to take away women’s right to vote were soon drowned by the flood of social media posts slamming the tag.










Trump’s overwhelming popularity among the male demographic, as compared to the female, is not surprising considering all the awful things the White House hopeful has said about women.

The former reality TV star is facing a heap of sexual assault and harassment accusations following a 2015 leaked audio tape where he bragged about grabbing and molesting women — because “when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”

In the past, Trump has also called women “dogs,” “slobs” and “pigs,” and frequently makes inappropriate comments about his own daughter, Ivanka.
