Trump talks rape/not rape and conspiracy theories

I have a blunt and serious question to ask you. When is the rape of a woman not a rape? Well, if you’re Donald Trump, it all depends on when you’re asked.

In a new video released by his campaign, Trump accuses Bill Clinton of raping Kathleen Wiley and Juanita Broderick, and he tries to link this allegation to Hillary. Bill Clinton isn’t running for president and therefore shouldn’t be a topic in the campaign. So why is the man who once implied he would have sex with his “hot” daughter if he could suddenly concerned about the nearly 30-years-old accusation? Particularly since he praised and defended Slick Willie at the time while criticizing his accusers. Not to mention that he had Bill and Hillary attend his third wedding.

In a recent interview with CNN, Trump surrogate and attorney Michael Cohen provides the answer:

“He was a private citizen who was friendly with the Clintons and he was trying to protect a friend. Now, it’s a different game. It’s 2016, he is the Republican presidential nominee.”

Let me repeat my earlier question. When is rape, rape? Or not rape? According to Donald Trump’s flunky, it’s not rape until you’re running for president and you’re looking for a way to gain a political advantage while covering up your own lack of character.

Next question: What about murder?

As we learned during the Republican primaries, Trump isn’t shy about the use of conspiracy politics as another tool to take down a competitor. Just ask Ted Cruz or his father.

In a recent Washington Post interview, Trumpster made a casual reference about the possibility that Hillary might have had something to do with the mysterious death (ruled a suicide) of Clinton friend and White House Counsel Vince Foster shortly after they had moved into the White House in 1993. Calling the conspiracy of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of his death “very fishy,” Trump stated:

“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on. He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide. I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”

Does that mean that his false claim that Ted Cruz had numerous mistresses, and his accusation that Ted’s dad was involved with the Kennedy assassination was fair?

Rape/not rape. A ton of conspiracy theories. These are just some of the tools used by Trump to cover his numerous flip-flops, record low unfavorable numbers, and his New York liberal values.

But I guess that’s how you make America great again.
