Buchanan: Hillary Opened the Door to Trump's Attacks on Bill Clinton

“She’s hitting me really hard with the women card”, Trump said.

Donald Trump said Tuesday that Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones and “many” other women who have accused Bill Clinton of having affairs with them would be “fair game” in his continuing fight with the Clintons.

No matter what cable new channel you watch, you saw a lot of Donald Trump in 2015, and you saw a lot more of Hillary Clinton than any of her rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Dismissing Hillary Clinton’s accusation that Trump himself engaged in sexism, the real estate magnate and reality TV star said: “And she wants to accuse me of things”.

In the spring of 2014, Hillary Clinton was asked about the Lewinsky affair after Lewinsky wrote a first-person account in Vanity Fair magazine in which she said the ex-president “took advantage of me” but that it was a consensual relationship. Controversial comments about about Muslims and other minorities have become commonplace in Trump’s stump speeches, but his recent comments about Hillary Clinton mark a new emphasis on gender from the controversial candidate. In general, the media are at a loss for how to handle this glaring contradiction at the heart of Hillary Clinton’s campaign to be the first female president.

The latest escalation kicked off last week after Trump used a crude sexual reference – schlonging – to describe Clinton’s loss to Barack Obama in 2008. That I can tell you. (In the New York Times, she explained the about-face by saying she hadn’t wanted to go public but felt she couldn’t lie to federal investigators.) Shortly afterward, frustrated with rumors that had begun to circulate about her, she gave several high-profile interviews. Clinton was in the state barely more than a week ago for the third Democratic debate, which yielded the most sparks between her and Sanders in what has mostly been a courtly primary campaign. We have to do it. You can’t let people push you around. “Are you saying an alleged extramarital affair, that of course he has now admitted, is that fair game?” Bernie Sanders, at 50 percent to 27 percent, with former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at 1 percent.

Trump, a billionaire real-estate developer, says he is largely financing his own campaign and not relying on big donors or special interests, which is unusual in itself.

Donald Trump has all but promised us that in 2016 we will revisit the peregrinations of Bill Clinton’s penis.

“I don’t believe he is a racist, if you want to know the truth, but they called him a racist”.

Meanwhile, former three-term NY governor George Pataki ended his presidential campaign on Tuesday after failing to break single digits in polling.

Trump has selected targets, such as immigrants and China, that make him ever more popular with his core constituencies such as working-class white men and others who are fed up with the status quo and Washington’s political elites, according to the opinion polls. Clinton has preyed on them, and in a workplace setting where he was by far the superior.

Kathleen Willey – The former White House aide claimed Clinton groped her in his office in 1993, on the same day when her husband, facing embezzlement charges, died in an apparent suicide. To support Hillary Clinton, they must continue the old argument that issues and policy matter more than her husband’s behavior.

Clinton also said she would like to look into Area 51, a secret military base in New Mexico that has always been rumored to contain aliens.
