Trump Surrogate Rudy Giuliani: Hillary Clinton Is ‘Too Stupid To Be President’

According to former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, Hillary Clinton’s decision to stand by her husband and attack Monica Lewinsky after rumors of their affair began circulating in 1998 makes her “too stupid to be president.”

Giuliani’s comments came Monday night following the first presidential debate between Clinton and Donald Trump. After 90 minutes of intense dialogue between the two candidates that left the Republican presidential nominee frazzled and angry, Elite Daily political writer Alexandra Svokos asked the outspoken Trump surrogate whether he believes the Republican presidential nominee is a feminist:

“Donald Trump is a feminist! I’m absolutely sure. I’ve known Donald Trump for 28 years. Women in his organization are paid the same as men. The president of his company is a woman. He is the first person to ever put a woman in charge of a construction company in New York. Donald Trump treats people fairly, and Donald Trump is an honest person, and he was too reserved and too gentlemanly at the end to say what I would have said about Hillary Clinton’s attack on him for not being a feminist.”

Svokos followed up, asking Giuliani what it was he would have said if he were in Trump’s shoes. At first, Giuliani deferred, saying he shouldn’t tell the reporter. But eventually, he couldn’t help himself:

“I sure would have talked about what she did to Monica Lewinsky. What that woman, standing there, did to Monica Lewinsky. Trying to paint her as an insane young woman when, in fact, Monica Lewinsky was an intern. President of the United States, her husband, disgraced this country with what he did in the Oval Office. And she, she didn’t just stand by him — she attacked Monica Lewinsky. And after being married to Bill Clinton for 20 years, if you didn’t know the moment Monica Lewinsky said that Bill Clinton violated her, she was telling the truth, then you’re too stupid to be president.”

Trump himself also addressed why he refrained from bringing up his opponent’s husband’s infidelity during the debate, telling “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning that he “was going to hit her with her husband’s women” but decided against it. “I didn’t feel comfortable doing it with Chelsea [Clinton] in the room,” he said. “I think Chelsea’s a fine young lady.”
