The third presidential debate went down in Vegas last night, and as often happens there, things got nasty.
While Hillary Clinton spoke about her plans for payroll taxes and the economy, Donald Trump interrupted her (once more) to wag his finger and call her “such a nasty woman.”
Of course, it took about five seconds for the feminists of the internet to step up and proudly stake their claim on nastiness.
every feminist i know has already reclaimed “nasty woman”

Even a few men got in on the fun, supporting the nasty women in their lives.
But people didn’t let Trump’s line about “bad hombres” slip through the cracks either.
The unfiltered remark is of course in stark contrast to Trump’s repeated claims that he respects women—which he’s doubled down on since a number of women have made sexual assault accusations against him in the past two weeks.
Women who want to proudly wear their allegiance to nasty women all over the world can, of course, already choose from a number of T-shirts sporting the slogan.
We’ve seen something like this before: When Mitt Romney claimed he had “binders full of women” in a presidential debate in 2012, women quickly appropriated the phrase and iterations of it for feminist causes. We’re still talking about those four years later, so don’t be surprised if you’re still hearing about Nasty Woman for Prez in 2020.
