It seems that 50 year-old mom to be and pop ICON, Janet Jackson has been PULLED into the POLITICAL ARENA. As she sits at home waiting to deliver, her hit song, 'Nasty' is enjoying a 250% STREAMING spike on Spotify after Donald Trump's 'Nasty Woman' response to Hillary Clinton at the final 2016 presidential debate.
Spotify attributed the uptick to Donald Trump’s “nasty woman” comment, which he made midway through the debate while Hillary Clinton was discussing social security and her plan to add money to the program. “I am on record as saying that we need to put more money in the social security trust fund,” she said. “That’s part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My social security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s – assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it.”
Trump then interrupted her and said, “Such a nasty woman.”
The internet responded with comparisons between his comment and Jackson’s “Nasty.” Videos even remixed the song and his remark.
BUT Trump's response has BACKFIRED in that 'Nasty Woman' has become a rallying cry for Clinton supporters.
The hashtag #ImANastyWoman spread like feminist wildfire, launching a conversation about the way successful women are often treated differently than their male counterparts.
In that moment, Trump did for Clinton what she hasn’t been able to do with female voters: He made her relatable. Nearly every woman sitting at home has experienced a version of the nasty woman moment, though probably not on national television. Whether it was being called nasty by an ex-boyfriend or bossy at work, women immediately picked up on the insult, and knew exactly what it was like to be in Clinton’s shoes. Although much of the sexism against Clinton has been slightly implicit, her opponent, for whom subtlety is an entirely foreign concept, has made his gendered condescension toward her crystal clear.
SO AGAIN, Trump... your WHINING has backfired. LOL.
