Donald Trump is drawing fire after calling Hillary Clinton a “nasty, mean enabler” of her husband’s affairs, according to NBC News. The comment came Friday during a rally in Eugene, Oregon and represented Trump’s harshest attack of his Democratic rival since becoming the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, notes the report.

It also marked the first time in recent months that Trump has “been so direct in referencing Bill Clinton’s affairs,” writes NBC:
“She’s been the total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives,” Trump said. “She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.”
His comments came as part of a defense against recent attacks from Democrats focused on his controversial comments and stances on women’s issues. Trump told the crowd “nobody respects women more than me,” but in contrast, “nobody in this country, and maybe in the history of the country politically, was worse than Bill Clinton with women.”
“Have you ever read what Hillary Clinton did to the women that Bill Clinton had affairs with? And they’re going after me with women?” he added, incredulously, without citing any specific examples or sources.
Some political pundits on Monday told CNN’s New Day that the comments are wrong and have no place in the presidential debate. What do you think? Sound off in the comments.
