LOW POINT: Trump Attacks Women By Blaming Hillary Clinton For Her Husband’s Affair

At a rally in Eugene, Oregon Friday night, Donald Trump went on one of his infamous sexist rants, attacking Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump has made jabs at Hillary’s past before, specifically attempting to use her husband, Bill’s, infidelity against her. Back in 2015, he tweeted — and then later deleted the tweet — about Clinton, “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?” The deletion of such a tweet might imply that Trump had learned his lesson, but in reality, the demagogue has proven time and time again that he never learns.

On Friday, Trump returned to the topic of Clinton’s husband’s infidelity, this time asking the crowd, “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 then went on to call her “the total enabler” and said “She would go after these women and destroy their lives. She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.”

One of Trump’s favorite lies is that “nobody respects women more than me.” After telling that same lie to the crowd in Eugene, Trump went on to say, “nobody in this country, and maybe in the history of the country politically, was worse than Bill Clinton with women.”

Trump, of course, did not provide any specific examples or sources for his attacks on the Clintons, specifically what Hillary supposedly did to the women Bill had affairs with. It is typical of Trump, and many other sexists out there, though, to focus more on Hillary’s husband’s affairs than on relevant information like her policies and practices.

Clinton has been subject to Trump’s sexism throughout this election, and things are not likely to get better as it continues. While Clinton has not been as vocal speaking out against Trump, other women have, including Elizabeth Warren, whom Trump also attacked during his Eugene rally.

Trump’s attacks against Warren, though, are weak at best. While Warren has intelligently and publicly criticized Trump to late night hosts like Stephen Colbert, all Trump has been able to do in terms of retaliation is call her a “goofus” and suggest that Clinton and Warren should run together so that Clinton can continue playing the “woman card.”
