During a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Donald Trump took his criticism of Hillary Clinton to the next level, referencing her marriage to Bill Clinton and apparently accusing her of having cheated on him.
Towards the end of the event on October 1st, when Trump was talking about Hillary Clinton being bought and paid for, he added in an improvised line referencing her relationship with her husband.
“I don’t even think she’s loyal to Bill, if you want to know the truth,” Trump said.
The entire audience laughed at this remark, also clearly expressing surprise that he had gone there. Trump then followed this up by saying, “And really, folks, really, why should she be?”
This comes one day after Trump said that he planned to be nastier towards his opponent and begin bringing her personal life into the campaign.
“She’s nasty, but I can be nastier than she ever can be,” Trump told The New York Times on Friday.
Trump also said immediately after the debate on Monday that he was proud of himself for not getting personal and for not referencing Bill Clinton’s past. It has become clear since then that Trump plans to bring Bill Clinton’s sexual history into the campaign, especially talking about the way Hillary Clinton dealt with the women with whom her husband had relationships.
Although Trump spoke from a teleprompter during his Manheim rally on Saturday evening, he went off script many times, getting in some jabs at Clinton that were not in the prepared text. In addition to the “loyalty” comment, he also mocked Clinton for her recent health scare, saying that she can’t even get into her car by herself.
