Appearing on CNN’s Outfront, Trump advocate Kayleigh McEnany ran into a brickwall after asking a prominent women’s rights attorney why she was backing Hillary Clinton when she should be hounding Bill Clinton over assault questions dating back to the 90s.
Referring to Newt Gingrich’s contentious interview with Fox News personality Megyn Kelly on Tuesday night, McEnany said, “Newt Gingrich spoke for all of us last night,” before stating voters are tired of hearing about accusations from women that Trump sexually assaulted them.
Attorney Lisa Bloom, who is representing several of Trump’s victims, took issue with the Trump spokesperson’s claim.
“I would agree that if we’re talking about consensual adult sex we don’t need to talk about it,” Bloom said. “But when we’re talking about having someone as the leader of our country subjected over and over again to allegations from credible women who have nothing to gain, this is absolutely a key important issue.”
After some back and forth over the allegations, McEnany accused Bloom of being a hypocrite.
“I’m flabbergasted. First of all the allegations aren’t proven, we have a presumption of innocence in the country where they are unproven. They deserve to be heard in a court of law — not here,” she strongly asserted. “If you care so deeply about the allegations about Donald Trump, why aren’t you so concerned about putting Bill Clinton back in the White House and putting his enabler who had investigators on these women? There’s a massive double standard here!”
“You obviously don’t know my record,” Bloom shot back. “Because I called more Bill Clinton to resign in the 1990’s based on his allegations. Bill Clinton is not running for office any more than Melania Trump.”
McEnany immediately switched back to Hillary Clinton, calling her “an enabler.”
