Hillary Clinton is making sure that America doesn’t forget Trump’s bragging about sexual assault while calling him, “a very effective reality TV star.”

Clinton was asked about her basket of deplorables comment, and she answered, “I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner. I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable. I thought his behavior as we saw on the Access Hollywood tape was deplorable, and there were a large number of people who didn’t care. It did not matter to them, and he turned out to be a very effective reality TV star.”
Jane Pauley brought up the argument that Clinton energized Trump supporters with her deplorables comment. She rebutted, “No, but they were already energized.” Clinton added that the Trump supporters were already energized.
Trump desperately wants to be taken seriously as a president, and Hillary Clinton’s little jab struck the President square in the ego. In the rest of the interview, Clinton took responsibility for the loss and admitted how painful the defeat has been for her.
It is important that Clinton brought up the Access Hollywood tape because America can’t be allowed to normalize and forget about the fact that the man who is occupying the Oval Office bragged about sexually assaulting women.
Donald Trump will never be taken seriously as a president. For the majority of Americans, he will be the bigoted, sexually assaulting, reality television star who only won the presidency with help from Putin and the Russians.
Hillary Clinton speaks for more voters than Trump, and President’s fragile ego just got a reminder of why so many Americans are rejecting his presidency.
