CNN's Don Lemon on Trump Telling Women He's Getting Husbands Back To Work: "Is That Going To Help?"

|

CNN's Don Lemon asked his panel on Tuesday if President Donald Trump telling women he is "getting your husbands back to work" is a message that will work with voters.

"I love women and I can't help it they are the greatest I love them much more than the men," Trump said at a rally on Tuesday. "I am also getting your husband -- they say they want to get back to work, right? They want to get back to work. We are getting your husband's back to work."

"Is that going to help him the way he thinks it will?" Don Lemon asked.


CNN's Gloria Borger was not happy: "All I can say is ahh!"

"I mean, it is just remarkable," Borger continued. "It sounds like it is 1955, perhaps. Getting their husbands back to work. More than eight times as many women than men have dropped out of the workforce since the beginning of COVID. It is a different world now. They are not suburban housewives, as he once called them. They are members of the workforce. Many of them are single wage earners, supporting their families. Many of them are the major wage earners in their families."

"For the president who is, as you pointed out, trying to appeal to suburban women," she said. "He does have support among some suburban women to say they want to get their husbands back in the workforce, I mean, it's just so hollow. It's remarkable."
