The war of words between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton escalated yesterday, after the GOP presidential front-runner used a vulgar Yiddish word to describe Clinton’s failed White House bid, and the former secretary of state’s campaign hit back at Trump, calling him “sexist” and an ISIS recruitment tool. “So nothing really surprises me anymore”.
Clinton, who rarely speaks except in pre-written talking points, then accused Trump of “bigotry”, “bluster”, and “bullying”. But she was going to beat – she was favored to win – and she got schlonged.
In recent weeks, however, Clinton has spent far more time attacking Trump and her would-be Republican rivals than Sanders, demonstrating a growing confidence in her primary standing and increased focus on the general election.
“I think he has to answer for what he says, and I assume that others will make the larger point about his language”, she told the Des Moines Register. Hillary Clinton, the poll suggests, would also put Trump in his place – “Hillary Clinton tops him”, added Malloy – though by a more modest 47-40. “Again, I’m not sure that anybody’s surprised that he keeps pushing the envelope”. On Twitter Tuesday, Trump denied the word was vulgar and said it simply means “beaten badly”.
Charlie Neibergall/AP ‘I’m somebody who’s had a lot of awful things said about me, but I’m old enough that it doesn’t particularly bother (me),’ Clinton said during a town hall meeting in Keota, Iowa. I don’t want to talk about it. No, it’s too disgusting.
Sanders continued to play things up by saying Trump must have “a very unusual relationship with women”, to only just realize its a thing they need to do. Mr Trump tweeted that the phrase had been used in politics before, to refer to an earlier Democratic campaign.
Trump’s speeches are often unscripted, and his supporters applaud him for what they see as his authenticity and disdain for political correctness.
And when it comes to which GOP candidate would be most likely to win the presidency for the party, 46% said Trump is the party’s best shot, but 50% said the party would fare better with another candidate. “So it solidifies and strengthens her core female vote, which is fantastic for her”, said Mr Steve McMahon, a Democratic strategist.
Clinton did not reference Trump’s latest comments on her 2008 presidential bid, but she made a veiled reference to his campaign when a student asked her about combatting bullying.
