Lia Thomas raised quite a bit of negative attention with her NCAA victory. Thomas was condemned by many other competitors, Joe Rogan, Caitlyn Jenner, Mike Pence and many other pundits.
Former president of the United States of America is the latest to share his thoughts on the debacle that is threatening the future of women’s sports.
Trump recently had a friendly interview with an alumni of The Apprentice -Piers Morgan. During the interview Trump called the notion of biological men competing with biological women “ridiculous,”.
He also sided with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who suggested that a ban be instituted to protect women’s sports.
“I agreed with it long before anybody else. I think it’s ridiculous. And it’s bad for the Democrats because they’re not going to do that.”
Morgan then asked, “One of the big questions being put to lots of politicians right now is what is a woman?”
“I’m not going to respond to the question,” Trump answered. “But a woman is somebody that swims at a certain time and doesn’t get beaten by 38 seconds by somebody that wasn’t even a good swimmer as a man.”
Trump used the sport of weight lifting as an example:
“People see it and they won’t put up with it,” he said. “They have a weightlifter where the record was for 11 or 12 years, and they put a half an ounce on each side the woman would lift. A guy comes along and breaks the record by numbers that you wouldn’t even believe.”
