However, while he and the Democratic candidate duked it out at Hofstra University, the Apprentice alum never once brought up the former president’s cheating past.
After the debate, the GOP nominee explained that he didn’t mention the sex scandal for Chelsea Clinton‘s sake, telling reporters:
“I’m very happy that I was able to hold back on the indiscretions with respect to Bill Clinton. Because I have a lot of respect for Chelsea Clinton and I just didn’t want to say what I was going to say.”
“Well, my reaction to that is just what my reaction has been kind of every time Trump has gone after my mom or my family, which is that it’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country safe and Americans safe here at home and around the world.”
Girl’s got a point!
Plus, the 36-year-old explained that she’s used to her parents being the targets of some heavy mud-slinging, adding:
“I don’t remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren’t being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately.”
In fact, the momma-of-two confessed that she’s more upset by the reality star’s overarching prejudice than his personal attacks:
And what I find most troubling by far are Trump’s … continued, relentless attacks on whole swaths of our country and even our global community: women, Muslims, Americans with disabilities, a Gold Star family. I mean, that, to me, is far more troubling than whatever his most recent screed against my mom or my family [is].
Such a classy clap-back, Chels!
