That's a lot more thought put into Trump's tweet than Trump put into it. All this explaining what he meant, really seems like mansplaining to me. Looking back at our sexist 70s and 80s, when (some) men just figured any time a woman opened her mouth she was suffering hysteria, so he had to explain it. That's what I see Republicans doing nearly every time Trump tweets.
