The head of a Texas marketing firm has drawn criticism — even from one of her clients — after saying in an online post that “hormones” should disqualify Hillary Clinton from being president.
“We’re built differently, we have different hormones,” Go Ape Marketing CEO Cheryl Rios told KTXA-TV. “In the world that we live in, I understand that there’s equal rights and that’s a wonderful thing and I support all of that. I don’t support a woman being president.”
Rios said she has drawn fire after posting on Facebook that if Clinton is elected, she would be “moving to Canada.”
“With the hormones we have there is no way we should be able to start a war,” she wrote. “Yes I run my own business and I love it and I am great at it BUT that is not the same as being the President, that should be left to a man, a good, strong, honorable man.”
Rios later told KTXA that besides the alleged hormonal issue, the U.S. could not afford to have a leader who would be “looked at differently” than a male president.
“There’s an old biblical sound reasoning why a woman shouldn’t be President,” she added, though she did not mention any specific passages to support her argument.
One of Rios’ clients, motorcycle store owner Rick Fairless, expressed disbelief at her stance.
“I can’t comprehend someone who thinks a woman can’t do anything a man can do.” Fairless said. “They can. I promise you they can.”

When asked about the state of the economy, Trump claimed that the economy is doing terrific but he said that Powell should nonetheless aggressively pump money into the economy via rate cuts.
"We should have [European Central Bank President Mario] Draghi instead of our Fed person!" the president said. "We have a man who doesn't do anything for us!"
Bartiromo then noted that Powell has made a point of preserving the Federal Reserve's political independence by refusing to obey the president's orders to lower rates, but Trump replied that Powell should just do what he's told.

"You know what I used to say we will find out, they spied on my campaign, and when you look at somebody saying, listen she is going to win but if she doesn’t we have an insurance policy," said Trump. "You know what insurance policy is? An insurance policy to get him out of office. These are sick people, two lovers the two pathetic lovers, two lovebirds sung like nobody ever sung."
Trump accuses Twitter of ‘censoring’ him in bizarre rant on Fox Business
President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused Twitter of "censoring" him in an angry rant on Fox Business.
During an interview with Fox Business's Maria Bartiromo, the president said that Twitter was intentionally lowering his follower count, which he claimed made it "harder for me to get out the message."
Even though Trump currently has more than 61 million people following him on Twitter, he claimed that he should have much more and said that Twitter executives were to blame.
"These people are all Democrats, it's totally biased towards Democrats," the president fumed. "If I announced tomorrow that I was a liberal Democrat i would pick up 5,000 followers!"
