This is gonna really help close the gender gap. Just now on MSNBC, Trump chairman Paul Manfort was asking about the huge gender gap Trump is facing right now. His response was… less than helpful to Trump’s cause.

Manafort: Well, again, it depends on which women you’re talking about, there’s many women in this country feel they can’t afford their lives. Their husbands can’t afford paying for the family bills. Hillary Clinton is guilty of being part of the establishment that created that problem. They’re going to hear the message. That’s how we’re going to appeal to them.

Chris Matthews: You know what you just said, right? You just said women are concerned about their husband’s income? Is that the twenty-first century talking? And that’s their big concern, how their husband’s doing at work?

Manafort: Because they can’t afford their lives anymore. That’s the point.

Well, that will certainly help things out. Well done, Paul Manafort. I have to say, for a political movement that really prizes the use of the word “cuck” that was an awfully strange choice of words.
