The 2016 presidential race is taking an ugly turn. It always does with Hillary and Bill Clinton in the center of things.
Donald Trump has retweeted Juanita Broddrick’s Tweets:
The Don is taking off the gloves. Expect fireworks at the Sunday night second presidential debate.
Excerpt from the Washington Post
Trump has yet to make these accusations a big part of his campaign, but he made clear in his statements after Friday’s explosive video that he was preparing to go there.
“Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close,” he said in his initial comment as the story was posted. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Then, in his fuller apology late Friday night: “I’ve said some foolish things, but there’s a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has actually abused women, and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday.”
These, mind you, were prepared statements from his campaign. And given the discord over what has transpired over the past 30 hours, it’s not clear from whom Trump is taking direction or if he’s even listening to anyone not named Donald Trump.
One Trump adviser who appears to be urging the Bill Clinton attack is Roger Stone, a controversial figure who told The Washington Post on Saturday that he had teamed with the conspiracy theory website InfoWars to sell 10,000 T-shirts with Bill Clinton’s face next to the word “rape” — ala Barack Obama’s “hope” poster
ALEX JONES CLINTON RAPE SHIRT.
There’s more than just an effort to sell shirts to get the word out about Bill’s horrific behavior. There’s also a nice cash payment being offered.
Excerpt from Infowars
In the middle of discussing Trump’s position on global warming, the former Commander-in-Chief was notably jarred when interrupted by two persons, one of whom is holding a Bill Clinton Rape poster.
“No one can dispute the fact,” Clinton starts his sentence.
“That you’re a rapist!” a person in the audience shouts, followed by another yelling, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!”
This is the second time in three days Clinton has been heckled during a speech at a rally for his wife, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Earlier this week, the former president was also interrupted during a campaign rally in Canton, Ohio, by a woman shouting, “Bill Clinton is a rapist,” while she held a display bearing the same message.
The patriots’ brave efforts to expose the Clintons are inspired by Infowars’ promotion highlighting the former president’s numerous rape accusations.
Infowars is paying out up to $5000 for anyone that can get the “Rape” shirt seen on local or national TV for five seconds, and/or can be heard saying, “Bill Clinton is a rapist.”
I have no idea who the ladies in the photo below are, but they offer some real ammo for those of us who use ridicule as a weapon as we speak truth to power.
As the Republican establishment abandons the Donald, he’s doubling down. It’s not clear how much their lukewarm endorsements of him mattered anyhow. Probably, they didn’t matter very much.
Trump greeted his cheering supporters Saturday afternoon, as seen in this short video:
