Breaking News: Donald Trump is going to go after Hillary Clinton with both barrels.
Donald J. Trump plans to throw Bill Clinton’s infidelities in Hillary Clinton’s face on live television during the presidential debates this fall, questioning whether she enabled his behavior and sought to discredit the women involved.
Mr. Trump will try to hold her accountable for security lapses at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and for the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens there.
And he intends to portray Mrs. Clinton as fundamentally corrupt, invoking everything from her cattle futures trades in the late 1970s to the federal investigation into her email practices as secretary of state.
Seriously, that’s it? This isn’t anything we haven’t heard before again and again from the right-wing noise machine since 1992. I think I have newspapers lining the foot well in my 1988 station wagon’s wayback with stories of the Clinton scandals.
But of course the news media knows that the public has the attention span of a sugared-up toddler and to them this will be news all over again, so get ready to go back to those heady days of Monica, Vince Foster, and the missing files from the Rose Law Firm.
No, I don’t take this lightly. So far Mr. Trump has been very successful attacking his primary opponents with bullshit and balderdash and now we’re in the general election. But at least we know what’s coming.
