Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” conservative commentator Pat Buchanan said it was “perfectly valid” for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump to go after Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Buchanan said, “If Hillary Clinton is going to attack Trump for some of his comments then that certainly opens the door whether Hillary Rodham Clinton was something of an enabler in the way she defended her husband against all these charges by all these various woman. Which we subsequently found out to be absolutely true. So I think that and I believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton is going to back away from this approach. Because there is no question about it whether you agree or disagree with the Donald — he’s got a right to make that case and has certainly indicated a propensity to go right after somebody when they go after him.”
He added, “I don’t see how she pursues this against him Trump. I think she backs away pretty quickly in this for the reason again on this one you are going to get an awful lot of people saying that is perfectly valid to go after Bill Clinton, and Hillary’s role in that in basically abetting that—basically she moved behind her husband instead of the women, if she is going to raise this issue.”
