Donald Trump has an uncanny ability to go overboard with his insults and allegations without thinking of (or maybe not caring about) the consequences. From retweeting false, racially biased statistics or a particularly unflattering picture of a rival’s spouse or dropping sexual assault accusations on the husband of his biggest competitor of the Oval Office, Trump has no shame.
The real estate mogul made an appearance Wednesday on Fox News’ “Hannity.” During the interview, host Sean Hannity brought up allegations of Trump’s mistreatment of women that recently appeared in a New York Times report. He then went on to ask why the newspaper had not dug into the past of former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
“How big an issue should [the accusations against Bill Clinton] be in the campaign?” Hannity asked his guest. “For example, I looked at The New York Times. Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey? In one case, it's about exposure. In another case, it's about groping and fondling and touching against a woman's will.”
“And rape,” Trump responded.
“And rape,” Hannity said.
“And big settlements, massive settlements,” the billionaire continued. “And lots of other things. And impeachment for lying.”
It’s not the first time Trump has used former president’s infidelities to target Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In fact, he went as far as to call the former secretary of state an “enabler” in her husband’s activities.
However, this is the first time he has gone as far as mentioning rape in the list of accusations against Bill Clinton.
As for that article detailing Trump’s behavior around women, the presidential hopeful fell back on the well-worn idea that the media isn’t fair to him.
“I was so furious at that story, because there's nobody that respects women more than I do, Sean, you know that,” he added. “And I treat women with respect. And I have — we all have fun. We all have good times.”
Considering all the insults and slurs Trump has hurled at women during his election campaign, it is hard to fathom who “we” are in this scenario, because he definitely did not mean the female population, right?
