CBS Reporter Responds to Trump's Gripe That Women Journalists Aren't Like '50s Actress Donna Reed

Trump tweeted in 2018 that pornographic actress Stephanie Clifford — known professional as Stormy Daniels — was a "horseface"and has said Rosie O'Donnell, with whom he regularly fought, had "a fat, ugly face.”

He said former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever" after she was co-moderating a 2015 Republican primary debate where she asked him about his attitudes toward women.

And in 2017 he claimed that MSNBC's "low I.Q." Mika Brzezinski once came to him while "bleeding badly from a face-lift."

Brzezinski told PEOPLE afterward: "Trump targets anything that pricks his ego. It is very sad that the leader of the free world can be played like a fiddle."

Trump similarly made fun of onetime rival Sen. Ted Cruz's wife's appearance during the 2016 campaign, retweeting an image of her next to now-First Lady Melania Trump along with the caption someone else had written: "images are worth a thousand words.”

The president, who has been accused of sexual misconduct or abuse by more than dozen women (which he denies), infamously bragged about touching women because of his celebrity status, as heard in a leaked 2005 Access Hollywood tape that was made public in October 2016 — one month before he was elected president.

"When you're a star, they let you do it," Trump said then while filming with Access Hollywood. "You can do anything. Grab them by the p—-. You can do anything."

After Trump's "horseface" insult about Clifford, former Rep. Ryan Costello — a Republican who retired from Congress in 2019 — tweeted that Trump's repeated misogynistic actions were "unbecoming" and "embarrassing."

“To say this is unbecoming of any man, let alone the POTUS, is a vast understatement,” Costello wrote then. “And to say this enables teenage boys to feel they have a license to refer to girls with (sic) such names is obvious. It’s all very embarrassing.”
