On yesterdays live show, host with The Young Turks John Iadarola took time to acknowledge President Donald Trump's support of International Women's Day, which the president chose to commemorate with two tweets. Trump tweeted that he has "tremendous respect for women," and he invited Americans to join with him "in honoring the critical role" women play in the United States, and globally.

John Iadarola described the Trump tweets as being "the right thing for him to say," and "very good." The TYT host noted that the president has not appeared to acknowledge "A Day Without Women," previously featured by Blasting News, described as calling attention "to far reaching women's issues that have been highlighted since Trump has come to office," including pay inequity and the planned defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Iadarola stated that the tweets were "more than he would have expected" from the president, but explained that there is a difference between claiming to hold a "respect for women," and the "harder thing" of actually living one's life in such a way.

The Young Turks compile Trump 'greatest hits'

In response to Donald Trump's claims of respect for women, TYT producer Jayar Jackson gathered some of the president's more infamous statements about women, and edited them together into a compelling clip. John Iadarola described the clip as containing Trump's "greatest hits," showing how much respect the president really has for women.

The montage began with a younger Donald Trump offering the opinion that pregnancy, while a wonderful time in the life of parents, is "certainly an inconvenience for a business." It then moved to the president's comments about an early Fox News Republican presidential debate, where he stated that Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her...


President Trump: 'She's a disgusting pig. Right?'

"Nobody has more respect for women than I do, nobody," President Trump can be seen stating at a September 2016 debate with Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The next portion featured Trump beneath a massive screen at The Learning Annex Real Estate & Wealth Expo proclaiming "She's a disgusting pig.

Right?" The clip then flashed to Megyn Kelly saying the word "bimbo," while questioning Trump about his attacks on her.

"Did I say that?" the president asked Megyn Kelly. The then-Fox News host replied, "Many times."

"Ew... OK. Excuse me," Donald Trump replied. The TYT clip then turned to the president explaining to Kelly that she's been called "a lot worse" by others during her life.

Another portion featured the president explaining to Chris Matthews that there "has to be some form of punishment" for women who undergo abortions. Another featured Trump stating that one of the many women who have tabled allegations of sexual misconduct against him "would not be his first choice."

Trump's behavior seen undermining legitimate role models

The Jayar Jackson-Trump montage then turned to the infamous footage and hot-mic recording the then-reality show star telling "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush about his attraction for beautiful women, and about how he needs some Tic Tacs, because he likes to "just starting kissing them." Donald Trump explained that, as a star, women "let you do it," even allowing him to "grab them by the p*****." A younger Donald Trump can then be seen explaining that when he comes home and his supper isn't made that he goes "through the roof."

John Iadarola lamented the fact that the United States has a president "who so clearly disdains women," and holds a belief that they should be only allowed to take on "extremely limited roles," with so many American women who act as empowering role models. These role models cause young women and girls to consider career paths that they may have otherwise avoided, something the TYT host sees Donald Trump's history of selling women short undermining.
