Clinton: Don’t Let Trump ‘Bully His Way into the Presidency’
Hillary Clinton offered a sobering thought on Tuesday when she called on Americans to stop Donald Trump from “bullying” his way into the presidency.
“Bullying has always been around but it seems to have gotten easier and more widespread because of social media and the Internet because you don’t have to look them in the eye, and so I think we all need to be aware of the pain and anguish that bullying can cause,” Clinton said.
“I really do think we need more love and kindness in this country,” she continued.
“I think we’re not treating each other with the respect and the care that we should show towards each other. That’s why it’s important to stand up to bullies wherever they are, and why we shouldn’t let anybody bully his way into the presidency, because that’s not who we are as Americans.”
The Hill reports:
Trump tore into Clinton at a campaign rally on Monday night, saying she “got schlonged” by then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in the 2008 race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said Clinton would not respond to the attack, but said “everyone who understands the humiliation this degrading language inflicts on all women should.”
Trump also mocked Clinton for returning late to the stage after a commercial break during Saturday night’s Democratic debate because she was in the restroom.
A student at Tuesday’s rally joked about the incident with Clinton.
“If girls want to run the world we should give a few more minutes for bathroom breaks at the debates,” the student said. “I’m glad you got back.”
“I’m just glad they had one somewhere,” Clinton responded.
Clinton took Trump on more directly for his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country, accusing the real estate tycoon of “playing into the hands of violent jihadists.”
“What you’re hearing from the Republicans and most particularly from Mr. Trump about Muslims isn’t just dangerous, it’s shameful,” Clinton said.
