Is Trump Right That Hillary Clinton ONLY Has The "Woman's Card" Thing Going For Her? I Look At The Issue With The Nightly Show, Daily Show & Chris Hayes (What I Could Find)

OK.*deep breath* So the question is, 

"What about what Trump said about the Woman's Card Hillary has been handing out? Can't women keep those women's cards? How dare you say woman! I hate you Trump! I hate you Trump!"

OK. First some food for thought:

OK. Now lets take a look at the Woman's Card argument presented by Donald Trump to start off the General Election debate (a smart decision. get it out there to see what happens and we can get over it quick).

Nightly Show:

PANEL - DONALD TRUMP'S "WOMAN CARD" ATTACKS ON HILLARY CLINTON - MAY 2, 2016 - Riki Lindhome, Rory Albanese and Grace Parra weigh in on Donald Trump's motivation for claiming that Hillary Clinton is "playing the woman card" to win the presidency. (6:47)


OK. I see what Donald Trump is saying. Jeb Bush got about 5% of the vote, he's saying that if the Democratic Primary conditions had been similar, then Hillary's similarities to George Bush (proved by Obama) begins to have it's toll. But he said it in a callous way that not just feminists but "Democrats" would find offensive. 

What about the woman's card comment?

Well, what exactly are her qualifications again? Most of those "qualifications" have already been debunked in the introduction to this post. Trump is right! The Woman's card is ALL Hillary Clinton, wife of Ex-President Bill Clinton, has going for her. She isn't a Madeline Albright or a Gloria Steinem. She's an Ex-President's wife who used her political connections to make herself the presumptive nominee long before the elections happened to the point where when things didn't go entirely her way we get this sort of drama;

This is the situation that Hillary is trying to take advantage of... which, BEING A WOMAN, gives her an edge despite her not helping woman as much as woman like to think;

Yeah. Grace Parra hates Trump a great degree and this gives us a barometer of how emotionally involved - a LARGE PART OF THE ELECTORATE - is on this issue.

Turns out, there is such a thing as "a woman's card" and Hillary has been handing the out!!! ...

That's a weird thing.

I think the point Trump is making is that is ALL Hillary has got, i.e. "the woman's card". No other valuable experience to bring to the Presidency. (see links to proofs below)

Yes. Everyone on the left advocates for women's rights. But I'm not sure how solid Hillary's own credentials are on that. Helping a woman see her kids rather than get deported because she is an immigrant and she gets raped in the farmers fields everyday... is that really helping women or just helping herself get a "bill passed" to her credit? There are other such examples if people are willing to open their eyes and see them;

Is Hillary being a woman having an effect on how people are seeing her political self?

OK. What else?

FLASHBACK - Salon: Sexism has nothing to do with it”: Camille Paglia on Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem — and why New Hampshire women broke for Bernie Sanders Sanders' thrilling win dealt Gloria Steinem and old-guard feminist establishment a loss. But it wasn't about sexism
With Bernie Sanders’ thrilling, runaway victory over Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary, the old-guard feminist establishment in the U.S. has been dealt a crushing blow.
Despite emergency efforts by Gloria Steinem, the crafty dowager empress of feminism, to push a faltering Hillary over the finish line, Sanders overwhelmingly won women’s votes in every category except senior citizens. Last week, when she told TV host Bill Maher that young women supporting the Sanders campaign are just in it to meet boys, Steinem managed not only to insult the intelligence and idealism of the young but to vaporize every lesbian Sanders fan into a spectral non-person.
Steinem’s polished humanitarian mask had slipped, revealing the mummified fascist within. I’m sure that my delight was shared by other dissident feminists everywhere. Never before has the general public, here or abroad, more clearly seen the arrogance and amoral manipulativeness of the power elite who hijacked and stunted second-wave feminism.
The next day, Hillary was accompanied on the campaign trail by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (a Bill Clinton appointee), who proclaimed, to Hillary’s laughter and applause, “There’s a special place in Hell for women who don’t help other women.” Waspishly policing the earth was evidently insufficient for the feminist politburo, who are now barging into the salvation and damnation game.
Never mind that the woman elevated to Christ Redeemer status by Steinem and Albright has a stained and tattered rap sheet five miles long. What genuine principles does Hillary have left, after a public career so light on concrete achievement and so heavy with lies and greed? Yes, she’s been handed job after job, but primarily due to her very unfeminist association with a man. As a senator, she initiated nothing of substance, and as Secretary of State, she stumbled into one disastrous fiasco after another, escalating the destabilization of North Africa and the Mideast.
I enthusiastically support and contribute to Bernie Sanders because he is a man of conviction who speaks from his heart and who does not need paid pollsters and a giant, obsequious, royal staff to tell him what to say or wear every day. He articulates a vision of social justice that should be at the core of the Democratic party, which has become far too cozy with big donors and corporate lobbyists over the past half century. Hillary Clinton, in contrast, is a time-server and trimmer who cynically panders to every audience and who shuffles through policy positions like playing cards.

Now we learn about how these woman cards, Hillary has been handing out, can be used;

What these cards look like;

What you can do with them;

Daily Show:

DONALD TRUMP TAKES SEXIST JABS AT HILLARY CLINTONAPRIL 27, 2016 - Donald Trump repeatedly accuses Hillary Clinton of playing "the woman card" and argues that she wouldn't be nearly as popular in the polls if she were a man. (5:04)

I guess, in a way that's true and in a way that's not true. Problem seems to be information!...

Hillary Clinton... War Criminal?

Her successful line from this controversy, thus far,... being fought right at the beginning of the general election season, is;

Hillary is cracking bad jokes and they are being well received. Trump has a bad rep on the left and Hillary has a good one (for unknown reasons) so it urns out this joke is a rouser.

Well, there is another way of seeing it;

Looking at the only video on this topic I could find on "All In With Chirs Hayes"...

MSNBC: Dissecting Trump's 'woman's card' comment Donald Trump concluded that the only reason why Hillary Clinton is winning primary contests is because of her gender. Chris Hayes talks with Katie Packer and Jess McIntosh about the two frontrunners and the women's vote.

Answering the abstract;

Trump is wrong. Hillary Clinton did not just win because of being a woman ... she won because she is the Democratic establishment and the elections are stacked in a way to give her momentum over others AND Bernie Sanders refused to do what Barack Obama did in 2008, i.e. prove that Hillary is a liar and more like a GOP Establishment Republican than anything else. (see explanations above)

What did Trump mean by 'being a woman is all that Hillary has going for her'. Well, for that we have to begin here;

Our Corrupt Political Establishment

Treasonous Activities

Then the following begins to make sense;
