Trump insult late in debate inspires hilarious ‘Nasty Woman’ fragrance ad

By WITW Staff on October 20, 2016

One of the most memorable moments of the final presidential debate Wednesday night came late in the match, when Trump, as Clinton took a swipe at him while answering a question about Social Security, interjected, saying, Clinton is “such a nasty woman.” The moment immediately made waves on social media and, by early this morning, Vox senior correspondent and producer Liz Plank came up with an SNL-worthy parody inspired by the phrase: a new fragrance called Nasty Woman coming to stores soon. It’s full of brilliant quips, like, “Because a woman’s place is in the kitchen … of a restaurant that she independently owns and operates.” Watch it below.

Plank followed up the video with an essay on why Trump’s “nasty woman” slight “may have been the best thing Donald Trump has ever done for her campaign.”
