Trump Says He ‘Cannot Stand’ Hillary Clinton ‘Screaming’

During a rally in California on Friday, Donald Trump complained to the crowd that he cannot stand the sound of Hillary Clinton “screaming.”

The Republican presidential candidate used a similar line last month, when he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he had not “quite recovered” from Clinton “shouting” the night before. On Friday, he acknowledged that it wasn’t politically correct for him to say certain things about Clinton.

“Do you think Hillary looks presidential?” Trump asked the crowd. “I don’t think so.”

He then teased out his feelings about Clinton’s voice.

“I’m not going to say it,” he said. “I refuse to say that I cannot stand her screaming into the microphone all the time.”

He said that he had to turn off the television on Thursday night when he heard Clinton speaking because he “just couldn’t stand it,” though he did not specify what he was watching.

“But I won’t say it because we’re not allowed to say it, right?” he asked the crowd.

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. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
