The Internet pretty much blew up with audio of GOP nominee Donald Trump having a rather frank and lewd discussion about women with Billy Bush, the cousin of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, back in 2005. Democrat Hillary Clinton responded with a tweet telling the world she found Trump’s discussion “horrific.” But as is generally the case with the Clintons, her statement reeks of hypocrisy.
This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president. https://t.co/RwhW7yeFI2

Apparently, she forgot about Bill’s actions — with multiple women. And she apparently forgot about her threats which were aired on the “Today” show back in 1998:
“This is—the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. A few journalists have kind of caught on to it and explained it. But it has not yet been fully revealed to the American public. And actually, you know, in a bizarre sort of way, this may do it.”
“I think we’re going to find some other things. And I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.”
Here’s the leaked audio of Trump’s comments, and they are rather graphic:

What happens now: Trump will be asked about sex-chat at Sunday debate. He will defend by citing Bill's serial infidelities. And sink further

Mind you, we’re not defending what Trump said back in 2005 — those comments are filthy, disgusting and indefensible. Trump isn’t even defending those comments now.
But Hillary really doesn’t have any high ground to occupy here, given what she has tolerated over the years.
Nevertheless, this is what the media is going to focus on for the next 30 days or so. All in an effort to distract from Clinton’s four-decade career of lying and scheming her way to the top.
