Trump told Irish journalist, Caitríona Perry of RTÉ News, to come over to his desk and informed the prime minister that "she has a nice smile on her face.

'We want to spend the rest of our lives together,' he said.Research from Rutgers University and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation has demonstrated that voters hold female politicians to a different standard (read: double) from their male counterparts.The dos and don'ts for women who want to run for office are long: They need to demonstrate they are compassionate and competent, strong (but not tough) and above all, likable.But on June 29, he took it to a personal level when he tweeted to his millions of followers about Brzezinski's appearance: "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). When it comes to how he talks about, addresses and tweets about women, President Trump is having a bad week. On Tuesday at an Oval Office conference with reporters, he told an Irish journalist to come over to his desk and told Ireland's newly elected prime minister, who was on the phone, that “she has a nice smile on her face.But his overtly sexist remarks about and to two female journalists are part of a consistent pattern of behavior from him: When Trump feels threatened by a woman, he tries to undercut them by reducing them to stereotypes about their looks and a bag of emotions.
