OTTAWA—Whitelash. This new political descriptor is one part of the story about the success of the Trump movement. The other word is bitchlash. The reality is that if the decision had been left to women, Hillary Clinton would be president. Gender and race were both elephants in the room that determined the outcome of the American presidential campaign. Sexism clearly played a role in Trump's portrayal of Clinton as nasty, emotional, and too sick to handle the job.
