Speaking on The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 in New York, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took swipes at Republican front runner Donald Trump, giving him names of her own after Trump called her a disaster and a joke at a recent rally.
The Breakfast Club had awarded Clinton with its dubious ‘Donkey of the Day’ distinction several times when she was a Senator for New York. Clinton took the opportunity on the air to say she felt Trump deserved a “Donkey of the Decade” award.
“He does scare me because what he is saying that he would do is wrong for our country. It is not only offensive to people and makes you cringe, but it is dangerous,” she said. “He is setting people against each other, he is inciting violence.”
Clinton said she has warned about Trump since he entered the campaign and expressed disbelief that Republicans would foster and accept a candidate like Trump.
“I have been taking him on from the beginning,” she said. “The Republicans, they just sort of watched this train wreck happen and then wonder, ‘Hey, how did this guy get to where he is?’”
“Starting last summer I was, Like, taking him on and now, I am taking him on even more forcefully,” she continued. “I am running ads against him. People say, ‘Well, hey, wait, you don’t have the nomination. Why are you doing that to Trump?’ I said, ‘Well look, we can’t let that stand.’”
Clinton went so far as to label Trump “a cancer.”
“You don’t let the cancer grow bigger and bigger and bigger and then all of a sudden we wake up and we say, ‘What the heck has happened to our country?’ Everybody needs to be going after him.”
“We need to repudiate the guy and everything and what he is saying.”
