Trump Accuses Woman of Being a Bush ‘Plant’

The Jeb Bush campaign has denied planting a questioner at a Donald Trump rally to challenge the Republican presidential front-runner on women’s issues, according to The Hill.

The day after his Monday campaign event in New Hampshire, Trump tweeted: “The arrogant young woman who questioned me in such a nasty fashion at No Labels yesterday was a Jeb staffer! How can Jeb Bush expect to deal with China, Russia + Iran if he gets caught doing a ‘plant’ during my speech?”

The audience member, Lauren Batchelder, said to the billionaire candidate: “So, maybe I’m wrong, maybe you can prove me wrong, but I don’t think you’re a friend to women.” Trump replied: “I knew I shouldn’t have picked her. I respect women, I love women, I cherish women.”

Batchelder persisted, asking: “I want to get paid the same as a man ... so if you become president will a woman make the same as a man, and do I get to choose what I do with my body?” Trump told her he agrees that women should receive equal pay, but repeated his anti-abortion stand.

A Bush spokeswoman said that Batchelder has volunteered for the former Florida governor’s campaign, but acted on her own at the Trump rally. “While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign, we can’t help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women,” Allie Brandenburger said in an email.
