"Free Subscriptions to Good Housekeeping"
President Donald Trump is doing three rallies a day in the final week before Election Day, and he's finalizing his closing message. Trump is desperately trying to get back a demographic he lost: those he calls "suburban women" – the same group of voters he earlier called "suburban housewives."
By all accounts he's under a curious belief that in 2020 women stay in the home and men go out to work – which may explain one of the reasons he lost them.
On Tuesday Trump telegraphed that strange concept when he told voters his own daughter, whose been granted the title Senior Advisor to the President, would "be very happy being at home with the kids." He added, "but we've got her working."
Later on Tuesday Trump told his "suburban women" not to worry, "we're getting your husbands back to work."
They are remarks straight out of the 1950's, or perhaps an episode of "Mad Men."
