Hillary Clinton declines to defend Bill’s ‘honor’ after Trump links the ex-president to ‘rape’
Hillary Clinton dramatically declined to defend her husband’s ‘honor’ today, hours after Donald Trump linked the ex-president to ‘rape’.
The Democratic frontrunner angrily claimed Trump was ‘fishing’ for her to get into a fight at his ‘level’.
Asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo, ‘Do you ever compelled to defend your honor, the honor of your husband?’ Clinton said, ‘No, not at all.’
‘I know that that’s exactly what he is fishing for. I’m not gonna be responding.’
Trump brought his toughest charges against Bill Clinton yet on Wednesday evening during a sit-down interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News.
The presumptive Republican nominee brought up a rape accusation against the former Democratic president when talking about Clinton’s past behavior with women with the Fox News host.
The two were discussing a recent New York Times article that was supposed to expose Trump’s own treatment of women and how several of the sources had come out and said the newspaper twisted their words.
Trump labeled the story a ‘con job’ and called it a ‘disaster’ for the newspaper.
Hannity then asked why the Times hadn’t dug into Bill Clinton’s past.
‘Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey?’ Hannity asked, ticking off the names of women who have accused Bill Clinton of inappropriate behavior through the years.
‘In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will,’ Hannity continued.
And rape,’ Trump inserted.
‘And rape,’ the television host repeated.
‘And big settlements, massive settlements. And lots of other things. And impeachment for lying,’ Trump continued.
Clinton’s presidential campaign barked back at Trump and said he was trying to ‘change the subject’ to escape the bad headlines dogging his own campaign.
‘Trump is doing what he does best, attacking when he feels wounded and dragging the American people through the mud for his own gain,’ Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill told CNN.
Merrill said, ‘If that’s the kind campaign he wants to run, that’s his choice. Hillary Clinton is running a campaign to be president for all of America.
Continuing, he said, ‘It’s not surprising that after a week of still refusing to release his taxes and likening Oakland and Ferguson to the dangers in Iraq, of course he wants to change the subject.
‘So while he licks his wounds, we’ll continue to focus on improving the lives of the American people.’
