Hollywood Reacts to Donald Trump Calling Hillary Clinton a 'Nasty Woman'

To paraphrase Michelle Obama—and Hillary Clinton—Donald Trump "hit low" during the final U.S. presidential debate with Clinton Wednesday night by branding her a "nasty woman."

The remark came within the same 90-minute debate that, when confronted once again by allegations of sexual misconduct towards women, the Republican nominee for the White House said "no one has more respect for women" than he did (and prompted sniggers from the crowd).

Trump's "nasty woman" comment came as Clinton outlined her position to impose higher taxes on the rich, "including Donald—assuming he can't get out of it."

The final verbal spar-fest between Clinton and Trump inspired many impassioned reactions from Hollywood's elite on social media, but no comments more so than Trump's fluctuating position on women in the span of the debate.

Clinton's Twitter team pointed out the about-face:

"Nobody respects women more than me." —Donald Trump earlier tonight

"Such a nasty woman." —Donald Trump just now #DebateNight

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 20, 2016

Meanwhile, some humorously embraced the "nasty woman" label, sharing songs like "Nasty" by Janet Jackson and causing #NastyWoman to trend on Twitter.

"Nobody has more respect for women than I do. Nobody. Not even women. Not even me. Not even--wait."

The "nasty woman" comment, in the end, will sum up this presidential run and be the mark of the final undoing tonight. #debatenight

It's a brain that thinks "say she's such a nasty woman" and also thinks, "lean into the mic for it."

"Such a nasty woman"? What he meant was, "Women, they're nasty!" Let's make sure he learns just how nasty women (& men) can be with a ballot

With the three debates now concluded, the fate of the presidency now lies in the hands of the American voting public on November 8.
