Current Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is continuing to deconstruct Bill and Hillary Clinton’s War on Women, not only reminding Americans about Bill’s longtime record of abusing women but also now powerfully tying Hillary’s record of orchestrating character assassinations against Bill Clinton’s numerous victims.
Stupidly, Hillary Clinton has almost begged someone to remind America of her “nuts and sluts” campaign in the 90’s, while her husband was president, which attempted to discredit the claims of women like Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broaddrick, among many others. In Broaddrick’s case, the accusation was not just sexual assault, but outright rape.
It’s a history that the Clintons would love American voters — especially women — to forget.
Except, Hillary Clinton made the unforced error of trying to paint Donald Trump as a sexist or a misogynist, a sleazy attempt to usher in the resurrection of the tired 2012 “War on Women” narrative that was used against Republicans. And it is backfiring…big time because it opens up the door for Trump and others to bring up Bill and Hillary Clinton’s sordid past.
“She came out with the sexism which is so nonsense, but she’s playing that card, and then I hit her back, and I talked about her husband and the abuse of women and the tremendous abuse — no, it’s tremendous abuse, it’s tremendous abuse,” Trump said at a campaign rally during the week.
On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter, his favorite social media tool to slam opponents, and delivered perhaps the hardest hitting critique against Hillary, who is an easy target due to her long history of lies, corruption, and political greed.
Trump wrote that along with Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton is also an abuser of women:
I hope Bill Clinton starts talking about women’s issues so that voters can see what a hypocrite he is and how Hillary abused those women!

If Hillary or her cabal of handlers had any brains, which is admittedly a stretch, they would throw her sexism card in the trash heap where it belongs. It’s not working for her, not against Trump, nor against any other candidate for that matter.
However, other than being the first woman president, the Clinton campaign cannot articulate any other reason to vote for her. What are they supposed to say, that she’s running to be Obama’s third term?
That might work about as well as the sexism card is for Hillary — an unmitigated disaster.
