If a picture is worth a thousand words, what does this picture say about how the Montana Republican Party views women. To be sure, it isn’t just Montana GOPers who regularly refer to women in derogatory terms. The Washington post has reported on Republicans falling all over themselves to refer to Hillary Clinton as a “bitch.” So it’s no surprise that Montana’s Trump Fan Club (formerly known as the Montana Republican Party) seems eager to get in on the sexist action.
Take this picture of GOP convention delegate Ed Butcher sporting a button featuring Clinton’s face and the words: “Life’s a bitch. Don’t vote for one.” (Here’s a close-up of the button below.)
Trump of course has a long history of making sexist remarks, and so do his Montana Fan Club. GOP Majority Leader Keith Regier compares women to cattle, and Speaker of the House Austin Knudsen authored a dress code ridiculed across the U.S. for its attempts to police women’s bodies.
