LOL: Hillary fumes at Trump for attacking her closest aide, Huma
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton used a national TV interview Friday to accuse her Republican counterpart Donald Trump of 'innuendo, conspiracy theories and defaming people' starting with her closest aide Huma Abedin.
In the exclusive interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, Clinton said she can take Trump's attacks, but 'I do regret that he’s going after so many people.'
That was a reference to Trump's swipe at Abedin, a decades-long Clinton aide and the wife of former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner.
Trump has been criticizing Abedin for weeks, starting with a DailyMail.com interview in which he alleged that Abedin had likely leaked classified State Department information to her husband, disgraced ex-Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner.
Clinton would have none of it.
'I can take that. I mean, that is just par for the course. But he is going after so many people, many of them by name,' Clinton told Mitchell.
'I think it's an unfortunate development in American politics that his campaign is all about who he's against, whether it's immigrants or women broadcasters, or aides of other candidates.
'He's is the candidate of "being against".
'He's great at innuendo and conspiracy theories and really defaming people. That's not what I want to do in my campaign, and that's not how I'm going to conduct myself.'
