It looks as though the Trump campaign really is going all-in with plans to make Bill Clinton’s past affairs a main issue in this year’s presidential campaign.
Speaking on MSNBC on Wednesday, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (TN) said that while she didn’t think it was “helpful” to talk about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado gaining “a massive amount of weight,” she also imagined that Hillary Clinton regretted being so nasty to the women who had affairs with her husband.
“Hillary Clinton right now is thinking, ‘Maybe I should not have been so vindictive toward some of those women,” she said. “Maybe I should have sought to be more helpful through that entire process.”
There is evidence that Hillary Clinton did say some nasty things in private about the women with who Bill Clinton slept around with.
According to a New York Times article from earlier this year, Clinton told her friend Diane Blair that Monica Lewinsky was a “narcissistic loony toon.” George Stephanopoulos also recalled that Clinton said of Connie Hamzy, the first woman to come forward and claim an affair with Bill, that “we have to destroy her story.”
It is not, of course, uncommon for people to speak ill of those with whom their significant others have affairs, which is something that Donald Trump should know given his own history of infidelities.
