Yup, he said that. The Boston Globe reports:
Donald Trump told a packed room Monday that the United States should not use its resources to liberate woman from local requirements to wear burkas. “They want to. What the hell are we getting involved for?” he asked the large crowd at the Atkinson Resort & Country Club. He added that it’s easier for women when they do wear burkas, saying, “You don’t have to put on make-up. . . . Wouldn’t that be easier?” “I tell ya, if I was a woman,” he said, waving his hand over his face to signal a burka. “I’m ready darling, let’s go.” The Republican front-runner in New Hampshire made the comments at a 45-minute rally that preceded his appearance on NBC’s “Today” show, which included a question-and-answer session with about 125 New Hampshire voters. Entering the ballroom to Twisted Sister’s anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” Trump told the rally crowd that bravado is what’s needed to lead the country.
