As the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump has now shifted his focus to attacking Hillary Clinton by claiming her husband is an “abuser” of women. However, this directly contradicts what Trump told Fox News in August of 1998, when he DEFENDED Clinton and slammed his accusers.
“The whole thing, it’s just so unattractive,” Trump told host Neil Cavuto, according to transcripts. “Linda Tripp may be one of the most unattractive human beings I’ve ever seen—not women, human beings. She’s just an unattractive person. This [Lucianne] Goldberg person, her agent or whatever she is, is just a terrible woman. You look at Paula Jones, I mean the whole cast of characters.”
“It’s like it’s from Hell. It’s a terrible group of people,” he added, according to The Daily Beast. “The whole group, it’s truly an unattractive cast of characters—Linda Tripp, Lucianne Goldberg—I mean, this woman—I watch her on television, just vomiting. She is so bad. The whole group—Paula Jones, Lewinsky—it’s just a really unattractive group. And I’m not just talking about physical, but I am also talking about physical.”
Trump went on to say that if the accusers were supermodels, they “would be more pleasant to watch.”
Trump then expressed sympathy for Bill.
“I don’t necessarily agree with his victims,” he said. “His victims are terrible. He is really a victim himself. But he put himself in that position.”
