(Chuck Muth) – Politico’s Ben Schreckinger notes that Donald Trump has stepped up his attacks on Hillary Clinton, and they’re exceptionally personal…
Donald Trump is taking his criticism of Hillary Clinton into new territory. The Republican frontrunner mocked his Democratic counterpart for a “disgusting” bathroom trip she made during Saturday night’s debate and said Barack Obama “schlonged” her in the 2008 primaries at a raucous rally here on Monday night.
For Trump – who comments often on Clinton’s penchant for pantsuits, has insinuated she is in a lesbian relationship with close aide Huma Abedin, and insists she doesn’t have “the strength or the stamina” to be president – Monday’s remarks take his focus on her personal life to a new level of intimacy.
Remarking on Clinton’s late return to her podium after using the bathroom during a commercial break at this weekend’s Democratic debate, Trump said, ‘I know where she went. It’s disgusting I don’t want to talk about it. It’s disgusting.'”
This is likely a harbinger of things to come next fall if both end up being their party’s presidential nominee.
