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.”

Confused Trump can’t stop talking about the new military ‘hydrosonic’ toothbrush missile
President Donald Trump spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday, saying that under his leadership, the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.
There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.
The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.
Trump teases he may not have a peaceful transfer of power if he loses
President Donald Trump was aghast when he was asked in the presidential debates if he would agree to a peaceful transfer of power.
The moment in the debate came when he dodged the question for weeks, refusing to agree to the long-standing tradition of presidents handing over the reins to the next leader.
"Well, we'll have to see what happens," Trump told reporters during a White House news conference. "You know that."
After weeks of bad press about it, Trump said he would agree to it.
"They spied heavily on my campaign and they tried to take down a duly elected sitting president, and then they talk about 'will you accept a peaceful transfer?' And the answer is, yes, I will, but I want it to be an honest election and so does everybody else," Trump said, adding, "When I see thousands of ballots dumped in a garbage can and they happen to have my name on it, I'm not happy about it."
Nuns at Trump rally appear uncomfortable reading their Bible as president runs over an hour late to event
A group of three nuns appeared in the stands behind President Donald Trump's podium as they waited for him to arrive.
Trump was supposed to begin speaking at 4 p.m. in Circleville, Ohio, but as of 5 p.m. Trump hadn't yet arrived. Ohio was once considered a solidly red state when Trump won it with a margin of 8.13 percent. Trump is now only two to three points away from being beaten by Vice President Joe Biden in the state, according to polling averages.
The three sisters were seen waiting in the stands, crammed in with Trump voters in red shirts dancing and bouncing around. They looked uncomfortable and gathered instead to read their Bible together.
