Donald Trump Slams Bill Clinton During Leaked Audio Question: 'His Was Far Worse'
While Donald was discussing his lewd leaked audio and explaining himself, he brought up the former President.
“That was locker room talk, as I told you. That was locker room talk. I’m not proud of it. I am a person who has great respect for people, for my family, and the people of this country. And certainly, I’m not proud of it. But that was something that happened. If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse — mine are words, his was action. His was far worse — what he’s done to women, there’s never been anyone in the history of politics in this nation who has been so abusive to women so. So you could say anyway you want to say it, but Bill Clinton was abusive to women. Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them viciously,” Donald said. “Four of them here tonight. One of the women who was a wonderful woman, 12 years old, was raped — at twelve. Her client — she represented, got him off. And she’s seen laughing on two separate occasions, laughing at the girl who was raped. Kathy Shelton, that young woman is here with us tonight…So don’t tell me about words. I am absolutely I apologize for those words. But it is things that people say. But what President Clinton did — he was impeached. He lost his license to practice law. He had to pay an $850,000 to one of the women, Paula Jones, who is also here tonight. And I will tell you that when Hillary brings up a point like that you talk about words that I said eleven years ago, I think it’s disgraceful. And I think you should be ashamed of herself, if you want to know the truth.”

Hillary Clinton: While, first, let me start by saying that so much of what he just said is not right. But he gets to run his campaign any way he chooses. He gets to decide what you want to talk about. Instead of answering people’s questions, talking about our agenda, laying out the plans that we have that we think can make a better life and a better country. That’s his choice. When I hear something like that, I am reminded of what my friend Michelle Obama advised us all. When they go low, you go high. And look, if this were just about one video, maybe what he’s saying tonight would be understandable. But everyone can draw their own conclusions at this point about whether or not the man in the video or the man on the stage respects women. But he never apologizes for anything to anyone. He never apologized to Mr. and Mrs. Khan, the Gold Star family, whose son Captain Khan, died in the line of duty in Iraq. And Donald insulted and attacked them for weeks over their religion. He never apologized to the distinguished federal judge who was born in Indiana, but Donald said he couldn’t be trusted to be a judge because his parents were quote “Mexican.” He never apologized to the reporter that he mimicked and mocked on national television and our children were watching. And he never apologized for the racist lie that President Obama was not born in the United States of America. He owes the president an apology. He owes our country an apology, and he needs to take responsibility for his actions and his words.
