Before last night’s debate with Donald Trump, Hillary thought it was going to be a slam dunk- after all, she had the oh-so controversial comments Trump made about women 11 years ago in her arsenal as well as the ultra liberal moderators in her pocket. What could go wrong?
Plenty. Trump was prepared for the attack and strategically placed some of Bill Clinton’s rape victims in the front row. Brilliant move.
The moderators instantly pounced on Trump for his comments and Trump responded like a boss.
FOX reports that during the debate, Trump went after Clinton’s character and honesty in an unprecedented way – accusing her of lying about her email scandal, threatening she’d be “in jail” if he were president and suggesting his own comments pale in comparison to her husband’s alleged abuse of women and her treatment of them.
Clinton, in response, claimed Trump’s vulgar comments revealed his true self, while accusing him of trying to create a “diversion” from his “exploding” campaign with his debate-stage attacks.
Clinton at times seemed to be trying to take what she described as the “high” road, but a nimble Trump – reminiscent of the pugilistic debater from the GOP primaries – attempted to sideline the controversy over the 2005 tape early on and stayed on offense for much of the 90 minutes in St. Louis.
“She should be ashamed of herself,” the Republican nominee charged, a line he used in reference to both Clinton’s email use as secretary of state and her alleged intimidation of the women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault.
Trump pivoted to tout his plans to “knock the hell out of ISIS” and turn the focus on Bill and Hillary Clintons’ actions toward the women who have accused the former president of sexual assault.
“If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse – mine are words. His was action,” Trump said. “Bill Clinton was abusive to women. Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them viciously.”
Trump SLAUGHTERED Hillary and it was very apparent that she was exhausted and beaten by the end of the debate as she was seen limping out the back door with her womanizing husband who had to help her down a few stairs.
THRASHED! Clearly shaken and wobbly Hillary.
