Bill Clinton’s wife, as I may have mentioned yesterday, claims she was shaken by the presence of Donald Trump on the debate stage with her.
“This is not okay, I thought,” Clinton said, reading from her book. “It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces.
“It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled. It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, ‘Well, what would you do?’ Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up, you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”
Um, granny, you just admitted that he could, and did, intimidate you. Or does your skin crawl and do you have to grip your microphone “extra hard” every time you aren’t intimidated?
She’s actually been slapping this card on the counter since at least 2000, when she whined that Rick Lazio “bullied” her by crossing the stage during the debate and asking her to sign a pledge not to take what Democrats now call “Dark Money” in her senate campaign. (She refused, by the way.)
So this old, haggard feminist claims that Donald Trump and Rick Lazio were able to bully her through the sheer force of their presence. So, Alpha Males apparently intimidate her. How the hell was she going to go toe-to-toe with Vladimir Putin? Was she going to send Tim Kaine’s thug protester son in her place?
Much as I have issues with Trump, it is increasingly clear we dodged a bullet with this one.
I really wish the old bag would just go away so I could stop posting about her.
