Some people will put anything in their mouths just to get ahead. I’m referring, of course, to Donald Trump, who now admits that his defense of former President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair was only, ahem, lip service.

Prior to this presidential campaign, Trump was of the opinion that Clinton’s impeachment over the extramarital affair was “nonsense,” as expressed in this 2008 interview with Wolf Blitzer:

“He lied! [Bush] got us into the war with lies! And, I mean, look at the trouble Bill Clinton got into with something that was totally unimportant, and they tried to impeach him, which was nonsense. And yet Bush got us into this horrible war with lies, by lying!”

However, Trump now expects us to swallow the notion that Bill Clinton’s behavior is relevant fodder with which to attack Hillary Clinton. On Monday morning’s New Day, host Chris Cuomo called Trump out over the contradiction, and Trump fairly boasted that his defense of Clinton was…READ MORE

    Crazy Trump Spokesperson with Bullet Necklace Turns Out to be Unemployment Cheat & Shoplifter

    Katrina Pierson, the national spokeswoman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, collected at least $11,000 in unemployment benefits while she was still working.

    Pierson received these benefits from the Texas Workforce Commission between January 2012 and November 2013. At the same time she received this government money, Pierson was working as a consultant for Ted Cruz’s campaign for the U.S. Senate.

    Receiving unemployment benefits while she was still working would seem to go against the grain of the message being pushed by Trump and the Republican Party, who have often been quick to blame minorities and immigrants for being on the government dole, supposedly taking up resources that should be going to white Americans (in reality, whites are the most likely to receive welfare benefits).

        • DogsRgoodpeople

          Trump gets the nomination,picks Cruz for VP to pick up the millions of evangelical votes. Hillary wins leaving hardcore Bernie supporters all pissed off and threatening not to vote………………………………………………………..shit happens when people get to emotional.

          do you think she’d wear the bullet necklace on the bench ?

    • DogsRgoodpeople

    “Donald Trump Says Defending Clinton Over Lewinsky Was Only Lip Service”
    Actually it was Lewinsky who was providing lip service.

    • anothertoothpick

      Consulting adults…no? Are you jealous?

      • Hirightnow

        Oh, c’mon…that was clever!

  • FatRat

    Illegal war > Infidelity. Trump runs against Hilary and polar shift in his core beliefs, Illegal war < Infidelity. I give Trump a perfect score of 10 for that spectacular flip flop.

  • anothertoothpick

    Kinda like the 4th grader reference to “shlong” to Hillary.

  • granpa.usthai

    the little chickensh*t won’t even wear a US Flag Lapel pin when outside his klan rallies.

    ‘Lip service?’

    I’d have found a less suggestive term.

  • Foundryman

    So in other words, don’t believe anything he says…
