For the past 5 day, the political world of the United States has been a one subject event, Donald Trump. Billionaire, sometime politician, donor to the campaigns of the both Bill and Hillary Clinton and finally the guy who stated that the female moderator, Megyn Kelly, of the Fox News Republican Debate, a bimbo. For 5 days, the news has been all Donald, all day. Trump hit the airways moments after what he called a biased debate aimed at directly at him to embarrass him personally. Trump took to twitter to complain and to bash then to call Kelly a bimbo. Every news program started their Sunday morning programs on what The Donald had been up to. One voice was noticeably quiet. That of the frontrunner of the Democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton.
Yesterday, though, Clinton took Trump and the rest of the Republican candidates to task over women’s right and how Trump is only a symptom how the GOP handles women’s concerns. Today, while campaigning in New Hampshire Clinton remarked that Donald Trump‘s appearance at the debate was “Yes, I know it makes great TV. I think the guy went way overboard — offensive, outrageous, pick your adjective.” Clinton then went on to address the rest of the Republican candidates as being out of touch with women as a whole. As for the personal attack Trump went on towards Megyn Kelly, Clinton remarked that Kelly “is perfectly capable and incredibly impressive” and can defend herself” Clinton continued the thought by stating she worries for women “who may not have the opportunity to defend themselves, who may lose the right to exercise a personal choice if certain of the Republicans were to be successful — I don’t want that forgotten.”
Clinton pointed out that just last week Jeb Bush said that “he said he was “not sure we need half-billion dollars for women’s health issues.” Clinton continued to say that the debate had and said was “What a lot of the men on that stage in that debate said was offensive.” Clinton had originally wanted to speak about making college affordable for all families but was snared into the Trump’s presidential bid. Getting back to the topic of education, Clinton spoke at length about her plan, called the “college compact,” and that it would allow students to attend public universities without taking on debt. Clinton continued and stated”, No student should have to borrow to pay tuition at a public college or university. Schools will have to control their costs and show more accountability to their students,” and that the states and the federal government to invest more in higher education. Clinton believes that the student’s loans should be able to refinance their student loans for lower interest rates. She said, “If you can refinance your mortgage or your car loan you should be able to refinance your student loan too.”
