Trump: Hillary Clinton Was ‘Nasty, Mean Enabler’ Of Husband’s Affairs

During a Friday night rally in Oregon, Donald Trump went after Hillary Clinton with some of his sharpest attacks on the Democratic presidential candidate yet.

While defending his popularity with women, Trump charged that Hillary Clinton enabled her husband’s sex scandals and then went after his accusers.

“She’s been the total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives,” Trump said, according to NBC News. “She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.”

Trump told the crowd that “nobody respects women more than me” before adding that “nobody in this country, and maybe in the history of the country politically, was worse than Bill Clinton with women.”

“Have you ever read what Hillary Clinton did to the women that Bill Clinton had affairs with? And they’re going after me with women?” he asked the crowd, according to NBC News.

This is not the first time Trump has used Bill Clinton’s past to attack Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail. Trump said that Hillary Clinton had “been hitting me really hard with the woman card,” prompting him to accuse Bill Clinton of having a “terrible record of women abuse.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community.
