Abandoned by much of the GOP (but not, so far, Sen. Marco Rubio) over his crude 2005 remarks about groping women, part-time Palm Beacher Donald Trump appears ready to revive 1990s controversies over Bill Clinton‘s behavior in tonight’s presidential debate with Hillary Clinton.
“Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims,” Trump said in the apology/attack video he released early Saturday morning. “We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday.”
On Twitter, Trump on Saturday re-tweeted two tweets by Juanita Broaddrick, who in 1999 publicly accused Bill Clinton of raping her 20 years earlier. Clinton denied the claim.
U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, says Clinton should brace for attacks from Trump but stay on message tonight.
“I hope that Hillary Clinton does not go into the gutter with Donald Trump. … She should just talk about the issues that people care about every day when they get out of bed, which is how they are going to make a living or protect Social Security or keep peace in this world or protect climate,” Frankel said.
