Piers Morgan tweeted the ‘breaking news’ of Trump’s stance on feminism
In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Trump is officially confirming he’s not a feminist — and apparently Piers Morgan has the “scoop.” And, of course, Trump somehow manages to decry feminism while simultaneously making it clear he has no idea what feminism actually means.
Morgan took to Twitter to tease that little tidbit ahead of an interview airing later tonight. While no one is exactly keeling over in shock from this news, the internet reactions are nothing short of hilarious.
President Trump has declared he is NOT a feminist.
He tells me: ‘No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist. I mean, I think that would be, maybe, going too far. I'm for women, I'm for men, I’m for everyone.'

“I’m for women, I’m for men, I’m for everyone.” Oh, well congratulations, you sentient mushroom. You just spouted the main tenet of feminism: equality.
Naturally, Twitter had a fucking field day.
Feminist means advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men. #ItsForWomen #ItsForMen #ItsForEveryone https://t.co/ry2z6vaENT https://t.co/bCuDPy1196

Raise your hand if you live for savage dictionary tweets — social media managers are truly doing the Lord’s work here.

Morgan’s initial tweet also led to people roasting him as well, because he’s Piers Morgan.
President Trump, my friend who I know (we are friends) has declared that he is NOT tired of winning yet. Did you know I interviewed President Trump, who is my friend? I know President Trump. https://t.co/pJLHNAKIDI

So you’re saying he didn’t mean he “grabs women by the pussy” in a feminist kind of way?
Quite the scoop there, Piers. Starting to see why you needed to hack phones for stories. https://t.co/je2JPQbUbU

Trump is a man, who by all accounts — as in, HIS OWN WORDS — has let us all know time and time again exactly who he is.
This is not breaking news.

Maybe Trump and that moron Missouri senate candidate should go out for a restaurant dinner together.
Obviously using an all-caps “BREAKING NEWS” was a bit generous, because to literally anyone and everyone — this isn’t that.

I think Howard Stern actually broke this news when he asked Donald Trump, “Can I call your daughter Ivanka a piece of ass,” and *Trump said yes.* https://t.co/fLW6ODMpie

Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women, let’s not forget. We’ve heard him admit to it ON TAPE.
His words, his actions as President, and even his body language when he’s around women (like bombarding Melania any chance he gets) make it clear he’s not exactly a champion for women. Leave it to Piers Morgan to act like he’s got a Pulitzer prize-winning scoop of the century with Trump’s “I’m not a feminist” admission.
