Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said if the Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton attacks him as sexist, it is “fair game” to bring up her husband former President Bill Clinton’s indiscretions.
Trump said. “I think he’s fair game because his presidency was considered to be troubled, to put it mildly, Because of all the things she’s mentioning to me. She actually said sexism, I don’t know if you saw the following tweet, but I turned her words against her from that standpoint. She’s got to be careful and fair. We all have to fight fairly and we have to fight for the good of the country, for the good of the people, for the good of everybody. But we have to fight fairly. And she’s playing the woman’s card. It’s like, give me a break. I have had so many women come up to me, saying, ‘you have to keep her out.’ She’s just terrible. She’s playing the woman’s card left and right. And women are more upset about it than anybody else, including most men.
He added, “The pension for sexism was exactly her words and I just turned them and thought it was fine. Yeah, I think that Bill Clinton was, you know, turned out to be a liability against Obama when they ran against each other in ’08. He was absolutely, you know, you look at the whole campaign, it was a mess. He said things that were very, very problematic and troublesome. So, you know, certainly Bill Clinton is not going to be the end-all in the campaign. He’ll come under attack, not just from me, but he’ll come under attack from many other people.”
