Condoleezza Rice’s response to Donald Trump calling her a “bitch” is both ruthless and ever so classy.
Donald Trump is no stranger to lewd, sexist, racist, xenophobic, violent remarks, so it’s not out of the GOP candidate’s character for him to call a powerful woman names.
In 2006, Trump called former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a “bitch” in a speech at the Learning Annex in New York City – originally reported by the New York Daily News and resurfaced by Deadspin.
“Condoleeza Rice, she’s a lovely woman, but I think she’s a bitch. She goes around to other countries and other nations, negotiates with their leaders, comes back and nothing ever happens,” said the would-be presidential candidate.

When CNN’s Kfile got word of the resurfaced comments, they reached out to Rice directly via email for a response. Rice simply wrote back:
“Exactly. Can’t wait til November 9!”
We envision Condi flipping her hair as she wrote this. Had her response been via text message, there’s no doubt that emoji would have followed. In this ever so classy and quietly ruthless email, Rice essentially gives Trump a termination date: November 9, 2016.
Mark it in your calendar. Condi has.
