Hillary Claims Trump Spread “Sexist Trash” After His Feud With Pelosi

Speaking at a Democrat event on Friday, Hillary Clinton attacked President Trump for defending himself against a spate of direct attacks coming from House speaker Nancy Pelosi, which the failed presidential candidate called “sexist trash.”

In reference to Trump’s sharing of a recent video featuring Pelosi struggling to speak during a press conference, Clinton alleged the president and his “cronies” were “spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi.”

“Now, it is sexist trash,” said Clinton, who went on to claim that “it is also a sign that Trump is running scared.”

From The Hill:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday slammed President Trump for spreading “sexist trash” after he shared a video of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) edited to make it seem like she was stuttering.

Clinton, while speaking at the Harris County Democratic Party’s annual luncheon in Houston, accused Trump and his “cronies” of “running around spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi,” USA Today reported.

“Now, it is sexist trash,” Clinton said to cheers from the crowd, according to the newspaper. “But it is also a sign that Trump is running scared.”

“So if you believe in the rule of law and the responsibility that we all have to hold our leaders accountable, then we cannot relent on this front either,” she added.

Trump on Thursday retweeted a video from Fox Business Network that had been selectively edited to combine clips of the California Democrat tripping over her words in a press conference. The network’s political analyst Ed Rollins commented in the clip that Pelosi appeared “worn down.”

Trump tweeted the video with the caption: “PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE.”
