It has gotten worse because people can now vividly imagine how Trump treats women. Before, it was just slander: "Cruz, your wife looks like an old hag!" or something like that. In the same manner, a picture is more vivid than a text describing the same stuff. It's more memorable, it is more accessible.
Interesting, I thought it was quite vivid how he plans to build a wall, or he doesn't care if nucleair weapons are used in Europe, or...
Treatment of women is repulsive, but nothing that wasn't known before. I genuinely am surprised of this reaction of the American public. But I guess that is the difference between European politics and American one.
