Women Are Reclaiming Their "Nastiness" After Trump Called Clinton "Nasty" During The Debate

"Be the nasty woman you want to see in the world."

Posted on

At the last presidential debate on Wednesday, Donald Trump closed out the evening by calling Hillary Clinton "such a nasty woman."

Trump to Hillary: "such a nasty woman"

And, as one might expect, it didn't go quite as he'd probably intended.

People everywhere decided it was time to reclaim the "nasty woman" within us all:

every feminist i know has already reclaimed “nasty woman”

Raise your hand if you're a nasty woman. #debate

lady in the streets nasty woman in the sheets

And there were a LOT of Janet Jackson references:

NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS NASTY WOMAN...

WHO'S THAT CASTING THEM NASTY VOTES? NASTY WOMEN!

A lot of people pointed out Trump's frequent comments that "nobody has more respect for women" than he does:

Trump: what a nasty woman Also Trump: I have the most respect for women, believe me

nobody has more respect for nasty women than i do.

All in all, it was a magical night for nasty women everywhere:

honestly all the greatest women in my life are nasty

Be the nasty woman you want to see in the world. #debatenight
