Donald Trump is taking the gloves off in his fight against the Clintons.
The presumed GOP presidential nominee used a word to describe Bill Clinton’s behavior with women that few Republicans have been willing to use in the past: rape.
Trump’s comments came during a discussion on Wednesday’s Hannity about a recent New York Times hit-piece which accused the New York billionaire of acting inappropriately around women.
“Frankly [the New York Times story] wasn’t even that bad if you wanna know the truth,” Trump told Sean. Since the release of the New York Times story, a number of women interviewed for the piece have come out in defense of Trump, including former Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean, and Donald Trump’s former girlfriend Rowanne Brewer Lane. “It’s like minor stuff. I think in one case I said to one of the women ‘you shouldn’t have a piece of candy.’ How do you compare that against Bill Clinton?”
“What about what Clinton’s done? How big of an issue should that be in the campaign?” Sean asked. “For example, I looked at the New York 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 another case it’s about groping, and fondling, and touching against a woman’s will.”
“And rape,” Trump injected. “And big settlements. And massive settlements.”
“850,000 dollars to Paula Jones,” added Sean.
“And lots of other things. And impeachment for lying. And losing your law license, okay. He couldn’t practice law. And you don’t read about this on Clinton.”
The Clinton campaign has yet to respond to Trump’s comments.
