CNN host Carol Costello abruptly ended a segment Tuesday after a guest brought up Hillary Clinton’s 1975 legal defense of an accused child rapist.
Appearing on “CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello” on Tuesday, Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, who supports Donald Trump said, “When you get one-on-one, especially if it’s Hillary, Donald Trump will go places nobody is willing to go — where the media at this point isn’t willing to go: Bringing up Clinton’s women who say they were intimidated by Hillary. Having them come forward and speak. A litany of issues that you can’t even imagine.” (RELATED: Clinton Sexual Assault Accuser Admires Trump)
Costello then interrupted, “I’m thinking that might not be a winning argument for Donald Trump right at this moment.”
Fellow guest Judson Phillips, who is a [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] supporter chimed in, “That isn’t going to be a winning argument for Donald Trump.”
“Sure it will,” Malzberg replied.
“How many derogatory things has he said about women? His negatives among women are 75 percent right now,” Phillips claimed. Trump is “not going to make that up. There is no way that he can win.”
“Do you know how many young women in this country don’t even know that Bill Clinton was impeached? No, maybe they’ve heard of Monica Lewinsky. They don’t know the women that have accused Bill Clinton of sexual improprieties and that say they have been threatened and intimidated by Hillary Clinton,” Malzberg said.

“A girl who was raped by a pedophile that Hillary Clinton bragged about getting off,” Malzberg began to say before Costello interrupted.
Costello said, “Oh, come on.”
“Wait, let me finish,” Malzberg said. “No, no, no,” Costello replied.
“What do you mean? You don’t want to hear it? That Hillary Clinton is on tape bragging about, as a lawyer getting off on a technicality. That woman now says, ‘Hillary ruined my life.’ That’s not fair,” Malzberg asked.
Preventing Phillips or Malzberg from talking, Costello overruled claiming, “I’m going to leave it there, Goodbye. Thanks for joining me.”
[dcquiz] Costello is not the first CNN anchor to be either shocked or censor discussion of Bill Clinton’s alleged sexual improprieties. Recently, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota was shocked to learn that there are at least 14 women who could make claims that former President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them.

According to the Starr Report, Monica Lewinsky testified that Bill Clinton told her that “he had hundreds of affairs” before he turned 40.
Some of Clinton’s accusers include Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Eileen Wellstone, Carolyn Moffet, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Becky Brown, Helen Dowdy, and Cristy Zercher.
