Revealed: Woman Who Grilled Donald Trump Over Gender Equality is a Jeb Bush Volunteer
A tough talking young woman who stood up to Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is a Jeb Bush volunteer, it has emerged.
The woman fired off a blisting question about gender equality at an event in New Hampshire on Monday.
She said: “If you go on to become president, will a woman make the same as a man and do I get to choose what I do with my body?”
But some digging revealed the woman is no ordinary concerned voter. She happens to be an intern for the Jeb Bush campaign.
Trump went on a Twitter rampage:
The arrogant young woman who questioned me in such a nasty fashion at No Labels yesterday was a Jeb staffer! HOW CAN HE BEAT RUSSIA & CHINA?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2015
How can Jeb Bush expect to deal with China, Russia + Iran if he gets caught doing a “plant” during my speech yesterday in NH?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2015
Her name is Lauren Batchelder and she's a junior at the St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.
On her LinkedIn page she lists her occupation as "Campaign Intern, Bush for President 2015" and is expected to graduate in 2019.
During the last debate, she tweeted: "I love you Jeb. Sorry you have to be next to Trump."
The View praised her on Tuesday’s show and Whoopi Goldberg said: “He got called out by an amazing woman in the audience and she wasn't about to back down.”
But they didn't figure out she was a Bush supporter.
The Jeb Bush campaign had this response: "Lauren is passionate about and active in politics and attended this event on her own accord... This question was not sanctioned by the campaign. Lauren has never been paid staff; she had volunteered at events as she has for other candidates in New Hampshire."
Tuesday is also debate night for the Democratic candidates and Trump predicts it will be boring.
Donald Trump also received some big news. NBC just confirmed the billionaire is going to host Saturday Night Live on November 7.
