Speakers Mock Hillary For Bill’s Affairs Before Trump Takes Stage At Rally

Speaking before Donald Trump was scheduled to take the stage at rally in Atkinson, New Hampshire, on Friday, former Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH) and former New Hampshire Gov. John H. Sununu (R) took shots at Hillary Clinton by referencing Bill Clinton’s affairs.

“Do you think Bill was referring to Hillary when he said, ‘I did not have sex with that woman?’” Sununu asked the rowdy crowd.

“Bob Smith made me do it,” Sununu said, chuckling.

Smith, who preceded Sununu on stage, goaded the crowd: “I think that Bill Clinton endorsed Donald Trump,” he said, before launching into an impersonation of the former president. “And I’m going to prove it!”

“I’ll tell you what,” he said in Clinton’s voice. “I’m going to tell you what, I want you to go out there and vote against Hillary.”

“You know, if she goes to jail, I’m going to be free as a bird to do whatever I want to do!” he said.
