Before Donald Trump hated Hillary Clinton, he loved her. He really loved her.
As Mother Jones notes, Trump once celebrated Clinton when she was First Lady, including a photo of her with his sons Don Jr. and Eric, which he included in his book The Art of the Comeback.
Trump was even saddened that the Clintons didn’t consult with him when they began house hunting in New York in 1999. The Clinton’s ultimately ended up in Chappaqua, New York, about 30 miles north of former President Clinton’s office in Harlem.
“I just wish I could have maybe represented him in buying the house, and her,” Trump told Larry King in an interview. “Because I think I could save them about $600,000 or $700,000.”
At the time, Trump was thinking about running for president on the Reform Party ticket. But he made sure to tell King, “I like her very much.”
Trump seemed disappointed when Clinton lost the 2008 Democratic primary to then-Senator Barack Obama. But the loss didn’t quiet his support of her.
“I think she’s going to go down, at a minimum, as a great senator,” Trump explained to local cable station NY1. “I think she is a great wife to a president, and I think Bill Clinton was a great president.”

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
Obsessed Trump: ‘Only fake polls show us behind’ Democrats. Fox News: 5 Dems would beat him
President Donald Trump is obsessed with polls – but not facts – and increasingly so. He just fired his internal pollsters after leaked internal poll numbers show devastating lossesfor Trump in key battleground states.
If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr
Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.
"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."
