The shit fight and rat-fucking has begun, Trump gets his hands dirty on Hillary

This election in the US is going to be awesome. The donnybrooks are going to be filthy.

Last week Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump and he has hit back with a vicious and nasty attack.

Three days after emerging as the all-but-certain Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump launched a full-scale attack on Hillary Clinton over the way she handled her husband’s infidelity.

Trump, whose derogatory remarks about women have fuelled his deep unpopularity among female voters, told supporters in Eugene, Oregon, that nobody “maybe in the history of the country, politically, was worse than Bill Clinton with women.”

“He was a disaster,” Trump said. “I mean, there’s never been anybody like this, and she was a total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives.  

“Have you ever read what Hillary Clinton did to the women that Bill Clinton had affairs with? And they’re going after me with women? Give me a break, folks.”

Trump’s comments underscored the volatility of his campaign against his presumed Democratic rival over the next six months, with the celebrity businessman unabashed about bursting through boundaries observed by traditional politicians. They also signalled he will try to force Clinton, and the nation, to relive the low points of her husband’s presidency and tumultuous campaigns.

Earlier in the primary season, Trump made similar remarks after Clinton criticised his attitude toward women. For weeks, he then took credit for muzzling the former first lady and her husband, suggesting his counterpunch was more than they could handle.

Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson did not respond to an email requesting comment.

It will be interesting to see how she responds to that. She is known for her dust-ups.
