On this weekend’s “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s negative comments towards the women involved with her husband, former president Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct is outweighed by the work “she has done for women in her life.”
Partial transcript as follows:
WALLACE: The fact is, Senator, Hillary Clinton does have a long record of going after her husband’s accusers, at least some of whom were later vindicated.
MCCASKILL: You know, Hillary Clinton may have defended her husband in various situations, but if we want to compare what she has done for women in her life, how she has worked — I mean, when the cameras weren’t rolling, when no one was looking, after a law degree from one of the best schools in the country, she went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund. She has said women’s rights are human rights when she was first lady famously. She has lived a life of championing women’s rights, a sponsor of equal pay legislation in the Senate. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is telling hostesses at his golf clubs that they are, you know, telling the people, get them off the hostess deck, they’re too fat. This is really not even a close comparison of who’s championed women’s rights in their life and who has not.
