Donald Trump Evokes Monica Lewinsky, Bill Cosby in New Video Blasting Hillary Clinton's Record on Women
"Hillary and her friends!" Trump captioned an Instagram video he posted on Wednesday
Donald Trump has come out swinging once again.
The Republican presidential frontrunner has aggressively taken on his biggest potential Democratic rival in a stark video that dramatically questions Hillary Clinton‘s reputation on women’s rights.
It then moves on to show an old image of Hillary Clinton making a speech with disgraced former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner behind her. Weiner – who is married to Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin – memorably resigned following a sexting scandal.
Later, the video flashes to a vintage image of the presidential hopeful standing near Bill Cosby, who was charged in late December with allegedly sexually assaulting one woman and has been accused by dozens more.
Ominous music plays in the background of the video, as we can also a hear snippet of Hillary Clinton’s well-known 1995 U.N. speech on women’s rights.
The video ends with a message that suggests Trump is a greater champion for women than his potential Democratic challenger.
“True defender of women’s rights,” reads an image that flashes across the screen. “Trump. Make America great again.”
Trump’s attack on Clinton comes just a month after the former Secretary of State told The Des Moines Register that the real estate mogul has a “penchant for sexism.”
“I really deplore the tone of his campaign, the inflammatory rhetoric that he is using to divide people, and his going after groups of people with hateful, incendiary rhetoric,” she said. “Nothing really surprises me anymore. I don’t know that he has any boundaries at all. His bigotry, his bluster, his bullying have become his campaign. And he has to keep sort of upping the stakes and going even further.”
Clinton has said her New Year’s resolution is to avoid Trump talk. We’ll just have to wait and see whether this latest video motivates her to break it.
