Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who famously used a press conference to announce he was leaving his second wife for a mistress, came up with another angle. After Monday’s debate, he told an Elite Daily reporter that Clinton’s failure to detect her husband’s own affair with Lewinsky showed she was “too stupid to be president.” [NBC News]
TRUMP WHINES, his sniveling and complaining about everything from his microphone to a Big Bad Beauty Queen, leading the candidate to concoct every excuse in the book to keep from admitting he blew the first debate badly.
Social media exploded yesterday over Miss Universe responding to Trump, while today we learn of more women he humiliated. I had some fun posting on the subject yesterday on Facebook, my profile page (as opposed to my Facebook author’s page).
Many Republicans disagree, but Trump has decided it’s time to double down on insulting women. He’s got talking points ready to unload on Hillary using her husband’s serial infidelities against her.
It’s the most sexist attack Team Trump could level, blaming the wife for her husband being a philandering ass.
“Mr. Trump has never treated women the way Hillary Clinton and her husband did when they actively worked to destroy Bill Clinton’s accusers,” one talking point reads.
“Hillary Clinton bullied and smeared women like Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky,” reads another.
“Are you blaming Hillary for Bill’s infidelities? No, however, she’s been an active participant in trying to destroy the women who has come forward with a claim,” reads a third.
The talking points also level new allegations about how Clinton supposedly aided her husband’s indiscretions and intimidation of other women.
I’d like to see Donald Trump go down this gopher hole. Some of us remember 1998 and how the Lewinsky imbroglio ended, which I was covering online to a massive audience at the time. Republicans lost and William Jefferson Clinton won.
Telegraphing that something trashy is coming, would anyone be surprised if Jennifer and Juanita made an audience appearance at the next debate?
Donald Trump’s plan to stiff everyone on his financials, including reporters, has forced news outlets to do their own sleuthing.
The Trump empire remains more than your average American can contemplate, though he’s not been immune to taking hard hits. How many nefarious foreign countries are tied into his fortune remains to be documented.
Declines in New York real estate hit the businessman’s fortune, knocking $800 million off what had been a $4.5 billion net worth in the last year, a Forbes probe has found. The magazine examined 28 Trump assets and found that 18 had declined in value, the most notable being the Trump Tower in Manhattan, his 40 Wall Street property near the New York Stock Exchange, and his ritzy Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.
