After Monday night’s first presidential debate, excitement is rapidly building for round two to be held on October 9 at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri.
Anticipation has grown now that Donald Trump has declared it’s “no holds barred” next time around. The Republican nominee told Fox News he would “hit her harder” in their next encounter by raising the subject of former President Bill Clinton’s infidelities.
Two of Trump’s most trusted advisors, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich, have come up with what they believe is the perfect attack line against Hillary Clinton: “If she can’t take care of her man, how can she take care of the country?”
Giuliani and Gingrich know a thing or two about women who cannot satisfy their husbands. Each is on his third marriage.
Some Trump aides are counseling against bringing up the former president’s affairs and blaming his cheating on Hillary.
One Trump staff member, who chose to remain anonymous, said it is “just stupid to blame the victim. A man cheating on a woman is: 1) the man’s fault, 2) not in any way representative of the woman’s character, and 3) inexcusable.”
Many political analysts agree blaming a wife for her husband’s infidelity is a losing proposition. It will alienate women and could make Hillary a more sympathetic figure.
Donald Trump, however, is not a man guided by sound advice but by his gut instincts. Playing dirty and punching below the belt is what helped him defeat his 16 primary opponents. He sees no reason to change tactics now.
Trump knows he will have a hard time securing the women’s vote no matter what so he is looking to nail down the large, all-important “philanderer” vote.
Even Vladimir Putin called Trump ”brilliant.”
