Hillary Clinton says that Fox News host Megyn Kelly is a “superb journalist” while attacking Donald Trump for some of the things that he has said and done over the course of the campaign.
During her appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday, Clinton suggested that “it’s not only women” that should “be concerned” by Trump’s conduct, “it’s everybody.”
Host Joy Behar said, “We were talking about sexism just before you came out… because we all, as women, experience it somewhere or another… but women seem to be under fire right now more than ever. You know, you had Heidi Cruz, the wives of candidates being attacked about their looks. You had a female reporter being assaulted. You have Donald Trump saying things like women who have abortions should be punished. I mean, it’s frightening.” (RELATED: Watch Joy Behar Fawn Over Hillary Before Asking Why People Don’t Like Her [VIDEO])
“What do you think will happen to women if a Republican gets — if Trump wins, God forbid,” Behar asked the former secretary of state.
“Well, let’s make sure that doesn’t happen, number one,” Clinton said. Adding, “I think for me, the way he’s conducted his campaign, the things he said — and he has insulted everybody and he has demeaned everybody.”
“You know, he started on his very first day saying that all Mexican immigrants were rapists and criminals, right? And then he moved on to attack people with disabilities. He attacked John McCain who’s a friend of mine, and said he wasn’t really a war hero [because] he was a P.O.W. for years and he was so brave,” Clinton said.
“And then of course going after American Muslims and really drawing these lines. And his attitude about and what he has said about so many women, the way he treated Megyn Kelly who is a superb journalist, I just don’t understand what he thinks is the role of somebody running for president,” Clinton claimed.
“I don’t think it is to scapegoat people, divide people, engage in this kind of prejudice and paranoia. And so it’s not only women and we who should be concerned, it’s everybody because of the way that he conducts himself,” Clinton said.
