Watch out, Donald Trump! Planned Parenthood Action Fund president Cecile Richards took a moment from celebrating Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as champions of women’s right at the DNC to diss Trump’s ‘frightening’ positions. But Cecile assured voters that women are the reason he’s going to lose!
Planned Parenthood Action Fund president Cecile Richards, 59, made it clear during her speech on the second day of the Democratic National Convention that Donald Trump, 70, and Mike Pence, 57, are not meant for the White House if you have any respect for women. “[Their] policies aren’t just frightening – they’re rooted in a disturbing worldview,” she said while speaking on July 26.
“Donald Trump has called women ‘fat pigs’ and ‘dogs.’ He wants to punish women for having abortions,” she said.” And he says pregnancy is an ‘inconvenience’ for a woman’s employer. Well, Donald Trump, come November, women are going to be more than an inconvenience.”
“Well, Donald Trump, come November, women are going to be more than an inconvenience,” Cecile added, throwing her support behind Hillary Clinton to a round of deafening applause. “We’re going to be the reason you’re not elected.”

When Cecile wasn’t trashing Donald Mike — remember, he’s the Republican vice presidential nominee, started the “defund Planned Parenthood” campaign, — Cecile praised Hill’s VP pick, Tim Kaine! Tim has a 100% voting record on Planned Parenthood, and Cecile has worked with him personally since 2012. “There has never been a presidential ticket more committed to women’s health and reproductive rights than that of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine. And we have never needed their leadership more,” Cecile wrote in an op-ed for Time.
Mike was the House representative who introduced the first federal measure to prevent patients from receiving healthcare at Planned Parenthood, and when that didn’t work, introduced five more. He was the person who threatened to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood. Fun! Remember him?
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Mike is an unfathomably misogynistic, despicable man who has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about when he spouts off about abortion and women’s health. He’s against women working outside the home. He once said that Mulan was proof that women shouldn’t be in the military. He said as an actual adult human man in the 21st century that condoms were too “modern” to work.
