Donald Trump proved Friday that he still thinks Bill Clinton’s sordid past is fair game in the 2016 presidential campaign. In a new ad posted on social media, he used the former president’s extramarital affair, and Hillary Clinton’s chummy relationship with some other infamous figures to argue she is no hero for women’s rights.
On Twitter and Instagram, Trump directed his followers to Hillary’s “friends.” Among them were Anthony Weiner and Bill Cosby, two men who have both been disgraced by sex scandals.
Trump has also reminded the media of Bill Clinton’s infamous and immoral relationship with a White House intern, using it as ammunition against Hillary whenever she accuses him of sexism.
But, Trump’s critics have responded by suggesting the businessman is the real hypocrite. His multiple divorces, and comments about women like Rosie O’Donnell and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly (he called O'Donnell a “fat pig” and retweeted a tweet calling Kelly a “bimbo”) make him ineligible to question Clinton’s women’s rights agenda, they argue.
So, they both have some baggage when it comes to women's rights. Who’s winning this debate?
