Trump Goes After Bill Clinton: “Penchant For Sexism”

Have you heard the one about Bill Clinton taking a bigger role[1] in Hillary’s campaign? I wonder how that’s going to work out?

(The Hill[2]) Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump late Saturday blasted the announcement that former President Bill Clinton will campaign for his wife, Hillary Clinton.

The real estate mogul said the former president has a “penchant for sexism” in a tweet.

The Democratic front-runner said in an interview last week[4] that Trump has “a penchant for sexism” after the billionaire said[5] she “got schlonged” in losing to then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008.

“It’s not the first time he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism,” Hillary Clinton told the Des Moines Register. “Again, I’m not sure anybody’s surprised that he keeps pushing the envelope.”

Trump later warned Clinton to “be careful as you play the war on women or women being degraded card.”

I’ll easily admit, I’m not fan of Donald Trump. Yes, he says some good things, and he holds a few positions that I agree with, but he also holds many positions I do not agree with. Some are liberal, some are very very leftist, some are GOP Establishment. That said, if Hillary wants to play this game, The Donald is the guy who will fight back, and fight back hard. He won’t be aiming shots at the gloves, or even body blows. He’ll be attempting to aim shots at the jaw, see how glass it is.

And there are lots of shots he can take. Bill has been credibly accused of sexual assault and rape by many women. He has tended to treat women as objects and play-things. While Mika Brzezinski might think[6] that bringing up Bill Clinton’s ‘misogynistic, sexist’ past is misogynistic and sexist, it is entirely appropriate and relevant to bring up Bill’s past, and the way Hillary enabled him, particularly if he’s going to be a bigger figure in her campaign.

The one thing you can count on from Trump is that he will not back down. He will not offer groveling apologies and/or squishy musings like many Republicans. When Trump says “be careful”, it’s a warning.

BTW, isn’t it sexist for Bill to have to ride in to help out a woman?
