Trump just disrespected women at a gender equality breakfast, and the women’s faces say it all

Once again, President Trump disgraced our nation on the international stage. This time, he couldn’t be bothered to arrive on time to a breakfast discussion on gender equality at the G7 summit, disrespecting both the dignitaries from our nation’s closest allies and the millions of women he’s supposed to be empowering.


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had just finished his opening remarks and had handed the mic over to his co-chair, who was in the middle of her speech when he rudely walked in like a hungover college student seventeen minutes late and sheepishly sat down with the rest of the class.

This image truly is worth a thousand words:

While Trump likes to boast about how many women he’s hired for his administration, representation is not the same as progress, seeing as those same women have helped spearhead appalling policies that strip women of their rights and make their already difficult lives even harder.

One only needs to look at Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen, under whose authority the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is tearing children away from their mothers, and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who revoked President Obama’s rules for investigating sexual assault on college campuses, to know that just hiring women doesn’t mean they don’t have diabolical agendas of their own.

To make matters worse, the Trump administration has attempted to defund beloved women’s healthcare provider Planned Parenthood and gutted funding to family planning services across the world just for providing abortions, depriving women of their right to choose and forcing them to undergo deadly back-room procedures that often go wrong.

For him to show up late like this is not only a disgraceful affront to the world but also a slap in the face for women across the world, making it obvious that one of the world’s most powerful men – an accused sexual predator dozens of times over – couldn’t care less about empowering women, erasing the pay gap, and pursuing gender equality.

Watch his walk of shame here:
