Now that it’s more apparent who the Republican and Democratic nominees will be – Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton – Trump will start aiming his insults at Hillary instead of at his failed rivals for the Republican nomination. With the election results, according to Politico on Wednesday, Trump and Hillary made great strides towards their ultimate victories on Tuesday as Trump won three of four states’ contests and Hillary won four states’ contests. Hillary, of course, has joined every other candidate on both sides of the ticket and has already been insulting Trump. Trump has said, on more than one occasion: “I haven’t even started on Hillary yet!” And, it’s apparent that he hasn’t. There is so much to attack Hillary on, personally and politically, that Trump hasn’t brought to the forefront as of yet.
Here’s just some of what we can expect from Trump regarding Hillary, and it is scathing. He will mention that Hillary was the first person on the world stage to suggest that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya – not him. It’s true. Before Trump ran with that highly-criticized notion, Hillary put it out there when she was desperate to defeat Obama in 2008. Hillary started the alleged-nonsense that the Democrats and Obama, himself, have mocked and ridiculed Trump for. Expect Trump to bring this to the forefront for the Democrats to see.
But much more than bringing up items that put distance and tension between Obama and Hillary, expect Trump to put extreme tension between Hillary and her strong female following. This is where Trump will go full throttle ahead and ask women to really consider if Hillary is the role model they should have for themselves and their daughters in the 21st Century. While Trump will likely humbly admit that his history of marriages is long and somewhat controversial, he will hammer away at Hillary’s past.
What is well-known and has incomprehensibly been shoved under the carpet about Hillary so far during this campaign is that she was publicly scorned by her husband. On the public stage, she was humiliated by a husband who – as we all know – had sex with Monica Lewinsky, a woman young enough to be his daughter. This was done right under Hillary’s nose at her then-house, the White House. What an incredibly humiliating episode for any woman to have to endure in her lifetime.
What an excruciatingly embarrassing time in the nation’s history when this took place, according to the Washington Post. Being logically honest, this isn’t the sidebar of historical content America would want for its first female president, but it is the sidebar that will always be attached to Hillary Clinton. And Trump will point this out. Furthermore, since Hillary’s husband is on her campaign trail – and since the former president has made extremely critical comments about Trump as he has campaigned – comments from Trump about the couple are fair game.
Does anyone know any woman who wouldn’t have subjected the husband to an ugly divorce proceeding while having thrown the guy out of her life, and then would have done all she possibly could to keep her daughter from the man? Hillary did absolutely none of this. How many women – and men – in this country wanted to see Hillary do exactly that! Nearly two decades ago, Americans were counting the seconds before Hillary would send Bill packing.
But, disappointingly, it never ever happened. And as Trump will remind the voters of America – for Hillary’s political gain, she subjected herself and allowed herself to be publicly humiliated just so she could use her husband’s popularity with the Democrats to have a political career. Trump will ask – not as an insult but as a sincere question: How could she do that and live with herself? How could she have done this and then stand there and have the audacity to claim she’s a role model for women – and their daughters? In fact, the jokes along this subject line have already started. One not-so-funny joke going around is that Congress will need to pass a new law if Hillary wins: “No interns in the White House!”
This election, unfortunately, has been more about personal insults than anything else – and obviously the public has responded to them in a way that has been very beneficial for some of the candidates. Now that we’re just about down to the last two candidates in this ugly presidential run for the White House, Trump has the advantage because Hillary’s use – or abuse – of her connection to Bill Clinton is about to be brought to the forefront – and is about to run out. Nearly 20 years later, Hillary’s controversial and often-felt disappointing response to what happened in her husband’s Oval Office is what very well could end up keeping her out of her own Oval Office.
