Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sparked outrage Wednesday night after calling Democratic rival Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman” during their third and final debate in Las Vegas.
As they were nearing the end of their 90-minute slugfest, Clinton landed a blow about Trump possibly evading social security taxes. As she continued talking, Trump moved closer to his microphone and said, “Such a nasty woman.”
He immediately heard from many on Twitter who used the term as a symbol of empowerment for women.

But it appears the name had already been taken.
NY’s hottest club is #NastyWoman. It has everything. Rigged Emmys. Bad hombres. Donald rejecting two centuries of American democracy.
