Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that there’s no comparison between the accusations about his treatment of women and the allegations, which include rape, made against former President Bill Clinton during an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Trump said [relevant remarks begin around 4:05] that some of the remarks he made to women in a New York Times article about his treatment of women were “minor stuff.” And “I said to one of the women, I said, don’t eat — you shouldn’t have a piece of candy, okay? … How do you compare that against Clinton, okay, what Clinton’s done.
Host Sean Hannity then stated, “What about what Clinton’s done? How big an issue should that be in the campaign? for example, I looked at the New Tork Times, are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick, are they going to interview Paula Jones, are they going to interview Kathleen Willey? In one case, it’s about exposure. In other case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”
Trump then stated, “And rape. And big settlements, massive settlements, and lots of other things. And impeachment for lying. … And losing your law license. And you don’t read about this on Clinton.”
