When former President Bill Clinton was preparing to hit the campaign trail in support of his wife, he probably wasn’t counting on running up against the juggernaut that is Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump, in response to Hillary Clinton’s accusations of sexism, has unleashed a barrage of criticism of Bill’s numerous extramarital affairs and Hillary’s role in keeping the women involved out of the spotlight. The GOP frontrunner has called the former president “one of the great woman abusers of all time” and accused Mrs. Clinton of being “an enabler” of “a lot of things … that were obviously very seedy.”
Though the Clinton camp has tried to evade the substance of Trump’s remarks, the irony is that Trump’s charges eerily mirror those made by one of the Clintons’ biggest defenders in politics today.
