During the third presidential debate, Hillary Clinton claimed that at the previous debate, Donald Trump mocked the appearance of some of the women who suddenly claimed to have been the target of his sexual advances.
Trump denied having said any of the comments she attributed to him at the last debate. That is correct: he did not say any of those things at the debate itself.
But he did crack jokes at their expense in subsequent speeches, in repartee with the audience.
In one speech, he said of a People writer who accused him: “Take a look, you take a look. Look at her, look at her words. You tell me, what you think. I don’t think so. I don’t think so.”
In another he mocked Clinton’s claim that he “stalked” her onstage at the second debate — by mocking her appearance: “She walks in front of me, you know? And when she walked in front of me – believe me, I wasn’t impressed.”
It should be noted that the Clintons also tried to dismiss the initial allegations about Monica Lewinsky in 1998 by mocking her appearance. Clinton adviser James Carville also infamously mocked Clinton accuser Paula Jones’ working-class origins: “Drag a hundred dollars through a trailer park and there’s no telling what you’ll find.”
