Hillary Clinton treated Donald Trump like President Obama treated Sarah Palin today when she was asked about Trump’s outrageously sexist comments about her.
Clinton’s response? Ice, ice baby.

Trump said: “She was going to beat Obama! I don’t know who’d be worse, I don’t know, how does it get worse?.. But she was gonna beat – she was favored to win and she got schlonged! She lost. I mean, she lost.”
“Where did she go? ” Trump asked the crowd, referring to Saturday night’s Democratic debate, during which after a break, Clinton was late returning to the stage.
“I know where she went and it’s disgusting I don’t want t talk about it. It’s too disgusting. Don’t say it it’s disgusting,” Trump sneered, repulsed apparently by his own suggestion that Clinton had to use the bathroom. Like humans do, on occasion.
So Hillary Clinton is doing what smart people do with school yard bullies and trolls. Ignore, ignore, ignore.
This is reminiscent of Sarah Palin’s desperate stalking of President Obama through the years after her ticket lost to him in 2008, culminating in her attempt to get his attention at the 2009 Alfalfa Club dinner where Joe Lieberman stepped in to block her from POTUS.
It’s not a coincidence that Sarah Palin and Donald Trump are both reality TV show “stars” who are using the Republican Party to pull the long con of the attention-desperate losers.
