For some inexplicable reason, the hashtag #TrumpGirlsBreakTheInternet began trending on Twitter last night. It was about what you might expect from that particular hashtag, which is to say: A bunch of T&A that was supposed to convince us that Trump is the right candidate for female voters.
Does this make you want to vote for Trump, ladies?
Besides the focus on boobs, did you notice anything these tweets have in common? They were posted by men.
However, as is often the case when something Pro-Trump gets going on Twitter, the backlash was swift and immediate, and ultimately completely overwhelmed the original intent of the hashtag, which is the way it should be.
The new #trumpgirlsbreaktheinternet actually makes Trump look even more sexist. I didn't think it was possible.— Jason Nichols (@RealDocSoos) June 27, 2016
Why is #TrumpGirlsBreakTheInternet a thing who hurt them besides like the patriarchy— Jenny GoT Spoilers (@IittleIotte) June 27, 2016
Who’s shocked that #TrumpGirlsBreakTheInternet looks like a Nascar tailgate party of unfortunate life choices?— Ashley Lynch (@ashleylynch) June 26, 2016
The power of social media to not only wipe away the ugliness of #TrumpTwitter but to reverse it in our favor is a true delight.
