Trump surrogate in Iowa compares him to Mother Teresa for what, she says, he's done for women

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: CBS News

A top surrogate for President Trump, who holds a senior campaign position in Iowa, said Wednesday night that the president has done more for women than anyone else she could think of besides Mother Teresa.

"There's not a person alive that literally has done so much for a female, for the female population," said Tana Goertz, Trump Team Coordinator in Iowa. "I can't think of one person that I could go, except for Mother Teresa. I mean, literally, who has done more for women in office than Donald Trump?"

Goertz's comments to reporters came when she was asked by CBS News what her message would be to women who may have voted for Mr. Trump in 2016 and for Democratic Congresswoman Cindy Axne in 2018. Axne, a freshman congresswoman from Iowa's 3rd District, won partly due to support from suburban women. Goertz said it wasn't completely fair to compare the two races.

Goertz, who also serves as an advisory board member for the Women for Trump Coalition, worked on the 2016 Trump campaign and was a contestant on season three of "The Apprentice." She helped lead a Women for Trump event in West Des Moines that was aimed at training female volunteers as organizers. Thirteen similar events were held in 12 other states.

5. What he meant to say was he's up there with Mother Theresa in putting women in their place

according to God's Plan™️.

Trump is the right's Chosen One, no matter how many mental contortions they need to make.

Is there some kind of hyperbole competition praising trump going on that I'm not aware of? These people have lost any grasp of reality.

24. In a way, she's right.

"I mean, literally, who has done more for women in office than Donald Trump?"

He's done more to promote Democratic women in office than anyone else.

25. Dear Tana: You got the first word right but The Teresa part is so wrong.

Think hard darlin', you can come up with another more appropriate second word for Mr. trump that a lot of us regularly use for him.

the chief meteorologist on channel 8 in Des Moines. He's a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal, too, although he hides his political views while on the air.
