Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says it was a “brilliant political maneuver’ for Donald Trump to turn Hillary’s accusation of “sexism” into an attack on her and Bill Clinton.
Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Giuliani said, “I don’t want to get into whether it is right or wrong to attack Hillary and Bill Clinton over you know, what happened in the past, but he found a way to do it that nobody else has done it. He found it based on her attack on him as a ‘sexist.'” (VIDEO: Trump: It’s ‘Fair Game’ To Discuss Bill Clinton’s ‘Abuse Of Women’)
Host Joe Scarborough told Giuliani, “You said he is one of the fastest learners you’ve ever met. This guy has been in politics for six months, he’s a neophyte. He’s better at what he is doing that Hillary, who has been there for 40 years.” (VIDEO: Trump: Hillary Is ‘Constantly Playing The Woman Card’ And ‘Pandering To Women’)
[dcquiz] Giuliani reiterated that it “was actually politically brilliant. Nobody’s been able to carry that off. … I’m not sure I’d pick that up. She attacked him as a sexist, he said, ‘I’m a sexist? What about you standing by while your husband was doing all that stuff with all that women and you were destroying their reputations? You mean to tell me, you heard about Monica Lewinsky, you didn’t immediately know it was true after his history? The minute you heard it, you knew it was true. And what did you do? You went out and tried to destroy her. And you’re accusing me of sexism?’ That’s a brilliant political maneuver.” (VIDEO: Trump: Bill Clinton Is ‘One Of The Great Abusers Of The World’)
“Unless you don’t read the newspapers,” Giuliani claimed, Trump is “the favorite. I was saying before, I think the real answer to all of our questions are going to come in Iowa, New Hampshire, and maybe South Carolina.”
“Is it celebrity or is it real voting? If it’s real voting, then he’s found his way to the nomination,” Giuliani said. (VIDEO: NBC’s Mitchell: If The Clintons Call Trump Sexist, ‘They Lose’)
