Clinton: Trump’s Comments Make You Want to Look at Cat GIFs
Hillary Clinton commented on Trump’s increasing scandals, mocking the absurdity of them by comparing his comments to online GIFs.
The Hill reports:
Hillary Clinton on Thursday slammed Donald Trump for comments he has made toward several groups, jokingly adding that her Republican presidential rival makes people just want to look at cat GIFs.
“There’s hardly any part of America that he has not targeted,” Clinton said at a fundraiser, according to a CNN reporter.
“It makes you want to turn off the news. It makes you want to unplug the internet or just look at cat GIFs. Believe me, I get it. In the last few weeks, I’ve watched a lot of cats do a lot of weird and interesting things.
But we have a job to do, and it’ll be good for people and for cats.”
GIFs — a type of digital image that is often animated — of cats are exceptionally popular on the internet.
Clinton cited the 2005 tape released last week in which Trump described how he could grope and kiss women without their consent because of his celebrity.
“The whole world has heard Trump brag about how he mistreats women and disturbing stories just keep coming but it’s more than just the way he degrades women as horrible as that is,” Clinton said.
“He has attacked immigrants, African Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, POWs, Muslims … and our military, which he’s called a disaster.”
Trump has faced backlash this week over his comments in the 2005 tape, for which he has since apologized.
On Wednesday, multiple women came forward and accused the GOP nominee of groping or kissing them without their consent.
Trump and his campaign have vehemently denied the accusations, calling the stories false and slamming outlets for publishing them.
