Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump made headlines on Wednesday when he accused former President Bill Clinton of rape during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
It all started when Hannity questioned whether the New York Times, after publishing a story criticizing Trump’s professional and personal relationships with women, would take the same approach to Bill’s affairs.
“For example, I looked at The New York Times. Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey?” Hannity asked Trump, listing women who have accused Bill of rape. “In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”
“And rape,” Trump responded, according to NBC News.
“And rape,” Hannity agreed.
“And big settlements, massive settlements,” Trump continued. “And lots of other things. And impeachment for lying.”
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill quickly issued the following statement in response to Trump’s allegations:
“Trump is doing what he does best, attacking when he feels wounded and dragging the American people through the mud for his own gain. If that’s the kind of campaign he wants to run that’s his choice. Hillary Clinton is running a campaign to be President for all of America. It’s not surprising that after a week of still refusing to release his taxes and likening Oakland and Ferguson to the dangers in Iraq, of course he wants to change the subject. So while he licks his wounds, we’ll continue to focus on improving the lives of the American people.”
