10 Hilarious Responses to Mitt Romney’s ‘Binders Full of Women’ Comment
Mitt Romney’s ‘Binders Full of Women’ Comment Goes Viral
After last night’s second presidential debate the internet was ablaze with responses to the fiery showdown between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. And while it’s still questionable to some about who was the clear winner, what’s undeniable is the collection of notable quotables dropped by both the president and the candidate alike.
One in particular stands out, however, is what the Massachusetts governor said when he was about equal pay for women. Stumbling slightly over the topic, Romney brought up a time when he was putting together a cabinet and asked women’s groups to help him find adept females for the position. With the group’s help, Romney didn’t just find several qualified applicants for the positions; he found binders full of women.
“And — and so we — we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet,” said Romney. “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, “Can you help us find folks,” and they brought us whole binders full of women.”
Since the governor of Massachusetts let the words fall from his lips, he’s been blasted on social media for the statement. Now, thousands of hilarious memes or viral picture comments about Romney’s ridiculousness have been uploaded to Tumblr.com where users worldwide have shared and re-posted them.
