Donald Trump: Conspiracy theories and the 'war against women' Republicans have always sneered when Democrats claim they're conducting a "war against women." Now Donald Trump has inspired a war between women Republicans. Some are so offended by reports of his sexual aggressiveness they no longer support him.

With women constituting a majority of American voters, it's a dispute with consequences for the future of the GOP. One veteran consultant is already brand-testing names for a new conservative Party.

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
