Donald Trump didn’t like it when Hillary Clinton took a shot at his reckless campaign rhetoric.
After the Democratic nominee listed a series of comments that Trump has made throughout this campaign, Trump responded by calling her dishonest.

Trump said that Clinton is “proven to be a liar.”
Clinton’s response: “I’m just quoting you.”
The short exchange is, in some ways, an encapsulation of the entire presidential campaign. If someone questions Trump about something he has without a doubt said – which happens a lot – he just outright denies it.
It’s why, according to PolitiFact, Trump is one of the most – if not the most – dishonest presidential candidates we’ve ever seen.
Clinton was, in effect, just telling everybody to roll the tape.
