• With THESE Comments, Hillary Ignores How She Let Bill Molest His Way Up the Politics Ladder

    Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Fox News host Megyn Kelly as “outrageous” at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Monday, but said that other Republican men running for president have made equally “offensive” remarks.

    “I think the guy went way overboard,” Clinton told reporters, referring to comments Trump made about Kelly after Thursday’s first GOP debate.

    Trump blasted Kelly the days after the debate, claiming the questions she asked him were unfair and that when she was quizzing him “there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

    His remarks were widely condemned as misogynist and many Democrats and Republicans guessing he was referencing Kelly’s menstrual cycle.

    Trump contends that he meant she was bleeding out of her nose or ears.

    “Offensive, outrageous, pick your adjective,” Clinton said of Trump’s comments.

    She defended Kelly calling her “perfectly capable and incredibly impressive.”

    Clinton then likened Trump’s comments to some made by other in the GOP field.

    “I think if we focus on that we are making a mistake,” She said of Trump’s remarks. “What a lot of the men on that stage and that debate said was offensive.”

    She slammed other Republican “men,” focusing particularly on Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) stance on abortion during Thursday night’s debate.

    “When one of their major candidates, a much younger man, a senator from Florida, says there should be no exceptions for rape and incest, that is as offensive and as troubling a comment as you can hear from a major candidate running for the presidency,” she said.

    “I don’t want people to be confused here about the outrageous comments by one and just say ‘we’re focused on this and we’re going to let the fact that there should be no exceptions for rape and incest go unnoticed or unmentioned,’” Clinton added.

    Clinton attempted to tie other Republicans to Trump’s statements after the billionaire real estate mogul said during his campaign kickoff speech in June that Mexico was sending “rapists” across the border. She compared those remarks to the Republican candidates’ general opposition to a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
