    do u think bill clinton's affairs are "fair game" in this election.

    trump keeps threatening Hillary Clinton with bringing up her husbands affairs. On CNN this hour one of his surrogate gave away a little too much about their strategy. She admitted that Trump will deploy women to go after Hillary mainly because the men in his campaign, including Trump himself, are flawed messengers. It's not available yet on the internet but remind to post it up if I forgot when it is available. In a normal campaign spouses and family members would be off limits. But, this is not a normal campaign.

    Full disclosure: Yes, I have , myself, gone after Trump's family. Kinda hard to resist.

    Reporters are claiming that they have talked to sources in the Trump campaign who are not happy with Trump bringing up Bill Clinton. While the Trump campaign denies it, again, his surrogates are out in force contradicting themselves on the issue. They say that it's not fair game to go after Bill Clinton. But, it is fair game to go after the way Hillary Clinton attacks and smeared the women that accused her husband of impropriety. Which frankly, insults the intelligence of voters. They're just making excuses for doing something they know full well is shameful. Hillary Clinton is widely seen as the victim here. Previous attacks on the Clinton's based on Bill Clinton's affairs have all backfired.

    They will use any possible levers, but, this is not a winning strategy. Trump already has the "hate the Clintons" vote. This will alienate even more women voters that he desperately needs.

    Trump won't stoop that low. He thought about it the last debate and decided not to because their daughter Chelsea was there. Trump has been a gentleman so far in the debates, he needs to keep that up. Let Hillary do the trashing, it will hurt her in the long run. It makes her look desperate .

    Sure. It opens the door for her to say if the infidelity by my husband who isn't running is important how many wives have you cheated on. As a matter of fact one of them said you grabbed her by the hair, threw her down and raped her. The only reason she did not prosecute is because you gave her a fat check. you cheated on every one of your spouses, I've never done such a thing. Are you saying the country should not vote for me because my husband did what he did while you did it to every wife you have had in addition to having a pre-nuptial agreement with your current wife? Why is that? You have plans to dump her too when you find someone else to fuck?

    By openly considering it, he HAS stooped that low.

    he continually threatens Hillary Clinton with it. Trying to bully her into submission. And now, he's even got women on the payroll defending him doing it. Frankly, I don't see how they can look at themselves in the mirror. Of course, if they would put a pay check before their own dignity by supporting Trump in the first place, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    A spouse's character is not relevant, but hers is. If Bill had a felony charge for embezzlement pending, this would be irrelevant. However, if Hillary had a charge of aiding and abetting embezzlement pending, that would be pertinent.

    Naturally, Trump's going to lose any character contest. I don't think Hillary has consorted with the Mob, for example.

    One note: Hillary was able to make threats because of power she derived from government. A reasonable person might find this especially relevant to her political campaign for POTUS.

    All in all, this will likely not motivate anyone to change their vote.

    He has black, Latino and Muslim supporters as well. Very hard to view such people as mentally healthy.

    there's no evidence Hillary Clinton used her power to threatened anyone. Plus, I disagree with your "reasonable person" characterization. The only ones that give a crap about this are Hillary Clinton haters. They certainly aren't reasonable.
