WEB DESK: Republican candidate Donald Trump mocked the Burka by saying that Muslim women wear it so that they do not have to wear make-up on Monday mornings.
“I saw a woman interviewed. They said ‘We want to wear them; we’ve worn them for a thousand years. Why would anybody tell us not?’ They want to!” Trump said. “What the hell are we getting involved for?”
Trump then offered a reason why those women might prefer them that went beyond their religious customs.
“Fact is, it’s easy. You don’t have to put on makeup, look how beautiful everyone looks,” he said, pointing to the laughing audience. “Wouldn’t it be easier? Right? Wouldn’t that be easy? I’ll tell ya, if I was a woman I don’t want to.”
