Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump blamed Hillary Clinton of unfairly taking advantage of her gender in her campaign. On the other hand, Trump declared Bill Clinton to be “fair game” as the former president squared up to campaign for his wife.
“She’s playing the woman’s card,” Trump was quoted saying during an interview on Fox News. Trump then turned his attention to Clinton’s husband, announcing him “fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled because of all the things that she’s talking to me about.”
“She’s mentioning sexism,” Trump added, referring to a recent interview in which Hillary told the Des Moines Register that billionaire Trump had “demonstrated a penchant for sexism.”
On Saturday, Donald Trump took to Twitter, “Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE’S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate!”
A little more than 12 hours later on Sunday morning, Trump relished about it.
He said “I turned her exact words against her,” while talking to Fox News.
Trump also indirectly hit at GOP primary rival Marco Rubio, who will be steering on the campaign trail next week in Iowa by South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the congressman who is conducting an ongoing Benghazi investigation. Trey Gowdy recently questioned Hillary Clinton on Capitol Hill.
“I hope he does a better job than he did on the Benghazi hearings,” Trump commented sarcastically, “because they were a total disaster.”
On Saturday, Gowdy called Rubio “a rock solid conservative and a leader we can trust.”
“Everyone was really looking forward to something that was going to be really productive and he didn’t win with those hearings,” Trump told the Fox News hosts. “I hope he does a lot better for Marco than he did for the Benghazi hearings, because they were not good. That was not a pretty picture.”
