We Should Remind You: Trump Defended Clintons Against ‘Moralists’ Who Brought Up Sex Scandals

Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 4.11.38 PMPresumed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump keeps bringing up the sexual indiscretions — both alleged and confirmed — of Bill Clinton in the hopes of cutting down Hillary Clinton‘s chances of becoming president. His supporters, too, have taken their cue and are doing the same.

The problem is that Trump used to hate on people who did exactly what he is doing now. Take this April piece from Buzzfeed, which found instances of Trump defending the Clintons.

In 2000, Trump called famous Monica Lewinsky scandal investigator Ken Starr “crazy,” called Hillary Clinton “a nice lady” and a “wonderful woman,” and said he would have supported her senatorial run if it didn’t conflict with his own.

In his book, The America We Deserve, he wrote this:

I got a chuckle out of all the moralists in Congress and in the media who expressed public outrage at the president’s immoral behavior. I happen to know that one U.S. senator leading the pack of attackers spent more than a few nights with his twenty-something girlfriend at a hotel I own. There’s also a conservative columnist, married, who was particularly rough on Clinton in this regard. He also brought his girlfriend to my resorts for the weekend. Their hypocrisy is amazing.

Yeah, the hypocrisy is amazing.
