Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani defended Donald Trump’s recent claim that Hillary Clinton may not be loyal to her husband Bill. According to the former politician and vocal Trump supporter, the Republican candidate’s allegations were fair game given how Hillary treated him during the first presidential debate.
In a recent interview with CNN, Giuliani looked back on Hillary’s attacks on Trump when the two presidential candidates faced off at the Hofstra University in New York on Sept. 26. During the event, Giuliani noted that the Democratic candidate referred to Trump as a racist and misogynist, among other things, based on the allegations she made against him.
For Giuliani, these unfounded claims are the main reasons why it was perfectly acceptable for Trump to accuse Hillary of being disloyal to Bill during the Republican nominee’s rally on Saturday.
“After she called him a racist and misogynist, a xenophobic, I don’t know, schizophrenic, and I don’t know what else she called him at the end of that debate, I think it’s fair game,” Giuliani told CNN.
The former mayor pointed out the fact that the public is well aware of Bill’s infidelity and how it has affected the women who have been linked to him. However, instead of finding a way to defend or even help them, Hillary, who refers to herself as a feminist, made certain moves to publicly criticize these women.
“I am saying, the problem with Hillary Clinton has nothing to do, as far as I’m concerned, with her marriage,” Giuliani said in the interview. “It’s her protection of Bill Clinton for 20 or 25 years against allegations of rape, taking advantage of an intern, and going on the attack and trying to make those women appear to be insane in some cases.”
As for Trump, it’s not yet clear if he will resort to using personal issues to attack Hillary, like what she did during the first debate when she brought up the controversy involving former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. According to a previous report, he was planning on bringing up Bill’s infidelity during the first debate but decided not to out of his respect for the members of the Clinton family.
