Donald Trump, the ochre villain in a Veggie Tales cartoon, appeared on your television Monday morning to express his continuing concern about Bill Clinton’s penis. He called the former president “seedy” and “one of the great woman abusers of all time,” adding that Hillary Clinton is his “enabler.”
Trump, who is suddenly very concerned about sexism, appeared by phone on CNN’s New Day this morning to tell an increasingly frustrated Chris Cuomo about many things, starting with his new TV ad, which, if you haven’t seen it, posits that Muslims Bad, Mexicans Bad and calls for “a temporary shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until we can figure out what’s going on:”
As The Hill notes, Trump also took time to again accuse Hillary Clinton of being somehow complicit in her husband’s affairs.
Cuomo noted dryly that Bill’s sex life appear to be “a big point of emphasis for you.”
“During the course of the debate and many other times, she used the word ‘sexist,’ I’m sexist,” Trump replied. “She used some words that were derogatory. How the hell can she do that when she has one of the great woman abusers of all time waiting for her at the house for dinner?”
Cuomo tried valiantly to point out that Trump’s views on these issues have, say, shifted over time: “Years ago you said Monica Lewinsky, they shouldn’t have chased after it like this, Bill Clinton’s sex life shouldn’t be an issue, now you’re saying it’s one of the main issues. How is a voter supposed to see you for that?”
Trump responded that Hillary Clinton was an “enabler” and that Bill Clinton and his presidency were “seedy.”
Trump also claimed that Obama is going to take your guns: “Pretty soon you won’t be able to get guns.”
Another stunning morning for a man whose each day somehow gets weirder than the last. Cuomo commented stonily that Trump is “a very challenging interview” before cutting to a commercial break.
