CNN Panelist: ‘GOP Women Are Trapped with Their Abuser, Which Is Trump’

Monday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” network contributor Anushay Hossain said Republican women are with an abuser, which she said was President Donald Trump.

Hossain said, “We are at a point now this goes beyond partisan politics. Violence against women is a human rights issue, and I want to reiterate my call to GOP and Republican women that it is time to get out. I feel like GOP women are trapped with their abuser, which is Trump. You guys have stood by him through pedophilia, through sexual assault.”

She added, “I want to say enough is enough. We are at a pivotal moment in this country right now. The culture is shifting. This is a turning point for women’s rights and for violence against women. And you know what, the president just made clear to us, not that we needed him to stipulate this, is that he doesn’t back this movement, that a man’s denial – a white man’s denial – is worth more than a woman’s word, than a woman’s experience. I don’t want to pull this card, but I think in this situation I have to. As a mother, what is the message that we are sending to little girls? What is the message that is coming from this White House? Why is it so complicated and difficult for this president to say, no, this was wrong. Violence against women, domestic violence is wrong. He can’t even say it.”
