CNN's Anushay Hossain: "GOP Women Are Trapped With Their Abuser, Which Is Trump"


CNN contributor and opinion writer Anushay Hossain went on a rant Monday accusing Republican women of standing by Trump through pedophilia, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. She said GOP women are trapped with their abuser, "which is Trump."

Hossain told Republican women that it is time to "get out."

Hossain also said the only time Trump shows "empathy" is when he is defending "serial abusers of women."

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin said "thank you" when Hossain finished her screed.

ANUSHAY HOSSAIN, CNN: We are at a point now, this goes beyond partisan politics. Violence against women is a human rights issue, and I want to reiterate my call to GOP and Republican women that it is time to get out. I feel like GOP women are trapped with their abuser, which is Trump. You guys have stood by him through pedophilia, through sexual harassment, through sexual assault, and not all of you, but the majority. And I want to say to the majority of white women, who voted for Trump, I want to say "enough is enough."

We are at a pivotal moment in this country right now. The culture is shifting. This is a turning point for women's rights and for violence against women. And you know what, the president just made clear to us, not that we needed him to stipulate this, is that he doesn't back this movement, that a man's denial -- a white man's denial -- is worth more than a woman's word or a woman's experience.

You know, I don't want to pull this card but I think in this situation I have to. As a mother, what is the message that we are sending to little girls? What is the message that is coming from this White House? Why is it so complicated and difficult for this president to say, no, this was wrong. Violence against women, domestic violence is wrong. He can't even say it!
