Donald Trump stunned the political world during Wednesday’s third and final presidential debate when he refused to promise he would respect the upcoming general election results. But on social media, two phrases spoken by the GOP candidate managed to dominate the conversation: “bad hombres” and “nasty woman.”
The remarks sparked instant outrage online, quickly becoming a rallying point for voters opposed to Trump’s hard line on immigrants and women—two demographics widely predicted to vote against the Republican nominee. Here’s how the internet re-appropriated the phrases:
I hear the bathrooms in Trump Tower are being relabeled “Bad Hombres” and “Nasty Women.”

Be a bad hombre in the streets and a nasty woman in the sheets.

Trump said some stupidity re “Bad hombres”: Spanish lesson 101: hombre=man; hambre=hunger; hombro=shoulder; ombre=Kardashian hair color.

Nasty Woman seeks Bad Hombre to share long walks on the beach, leisurely afternoons reading, and trading off who is the real puppet.

Wait. Rewind. Did that racist just say “bad hombres”?

Trump dropped his “nasty woman” insult at Hillary Clinton, seemingly out of nowhere, when she was in the middle of criticizing his failure to pay income taxes. Moments later NastyWomenGetShitDone.com redirected to Clinton’s campaign site.
