Speaking during the debate, Trump tried to turn the attention away from him and accused Bill Clinton of being “abusive to women” and said Hillary Clinton “attacked those same women”. He added: “I think it’s disgraceful and I think she should be ashamed of herself.”
He added of Bill Clinton: “Never been anybody in the history of politics that’s been so abusive to women.”
The Washington Post on Friday published a leaked video in which Trump bragged about groping women and hitting on a married woman. “I am automatically attracted to beautiful women. I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss, I don’t even wait,” Trump said in a 2005 conversation with “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush. “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
Hillary Clinton, who said she had spent the previous 48-hours thinking about Trump’s comments, hit back at the Republican.
“What we all saw and heard on Friday was Donald talking about women, what he thinks about women, what he does to women,” Clinton said. “And he has said that the video doesn’t represent who he is, but I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is, because we’ve seen this throughout the campaign.”
“We have seen him insult women,” Clinton added. “We’ve seen him rate women on their appearance, rank them from one to 10. We’ve seen him embarrass women on TV and on Twitter. We saw him after the first debate spend nearly a week denigrating a former Miss Universe in the harshest, most personal terms. So yes, this is who Donald Trump is.”
“It’s not only this video that raises questions about his fitness to be our president,” she said. “Because he has also targeted immigrants, African-Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, prisoners of war, Muslims, and so many others. So this is who Donald Trump is, and the question for us, the question our country must answer, is if this is not who we are.”
