Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” the president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards said likely presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s attacks against Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton’s infamous infidelities will not work.
Richards said, “It’s not surprising in a way but it is very distressing to see that anyone who is running for president of the United States to be so completely disrespectful and dismissive of women. An particularly a woman who has been secretary of state and a United States Senator. She’s a woman who has incredible experience and committed her entire life for public service and he shows her absolutely no respect. I don’t think it is surprising but for him, I don’t know how he thinks he’s going to win the election when the majority of the voters in the country is women next November.”
She continued, “This is not an issue of anyone’s minds. What woman are thinking about are what our patients at Planned Parenthood are thinking about. They are not getting equal pay in this country. There is no access to affordable child care. They need access to health care. We have 24 states trying to end access of birth control and cancer screenings. Donald Trump instead of addressing those, he is going after this personal attack on Hillary Clinton. It is absolutely not going to work. It is not what the American voters want to hear about. They want to hear how are you going to fix the problem in America. Hillary has laid out a clear path of things she would do as president. She does not do these crazy attacks. Donald Trump is someone who is completely unpredictable. He’s not someone ready to be the president of the United States.”
