While discussing Bill Clinton’s sex scandals in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, Donald Trump brought up old rape allegations against the former president.

Hannity mentioned Bill Clinton’s accusers while talking about a New York Times story detail Trump’s past behavior with women.

“Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick?” Hannity asked. “Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey? In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”

“And rape,” Trump jumped in to say.

“And rape,” Hannity then said.

“And big settlements, massive settlements,” Trump continued. “And impeachment for lying, and losing your law license. You know, he lost his law license, OK? He couldn’t practice law. And you don’t read about this on Clinton.”

Trump then said that the New York Times and ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos are “pipe organs for Hillary Clinton.”

“I’m in a pretty rough business — real estate — I meet some tough people, but I have never seen lies and deception like I see in — not only with the people, not only with the politicians, but when you’re in politics it is a deceiving, it’s really a pretty rough profession,” Trump added. “The political press, worse than anything else is the political press.”

Juanita Broaddrick accused Bill Clinton of rape in 1999, and recently resurfaced the allegations in January. Bill Clinton has denied the allegations through his lawyers.

    Just when you thought the this insecure boorish lout could go no lower. How Presidential the world must think of our equivalent of an ignorant insecure attention seeking red suited girly show barker. To childishly raise an issue that has no bearing or relationship to the present or the sober and important issues of this Presidential election for some kind of self attention shock value. Obviously Donny’s mother must not have hugged him enough when he was little to constantly require this desperate need for attention to comfort his maniac insecurities. Just the kind of guy to have his finger on the button.

  4. Sounds like he’s projecting again.

  5. He talking only to his sick enablers. The garbage mouth won’t be convincing others.
