In 2016, during the first presidential debate, Hilary Clinton hit back at Donald Trump for his insulting remarks. Clinton said: “This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, who has said that women don’t deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men.”
