Hillary Clinton Compliments Megyn Kelly, Hits Marco Rubio (Who Hits Back)

Hillary Clinton is very disappointed in her old friend Donald Trump. 

Apparently, Hillary found Donald Trump’s commentary about Megyn Kelly’s “blood” utterly dehumanizing and patently offensive. According to Hillary, Megyn Kelly is smart and impressive and any criticism of Kelly is undeserved, outrageous and “pick your adjective.” Although, she says, every other Republican Presidential candidate — lumping Carly Fiorina in with the men, apparently — is just as bad, because they all hate women and want to oppress them. Or something.

“I said it was outrageous, I stand by that,” Clinton said of Trump’s words. “I think more people should say the same.”

“But I just want to remind us that what they say about women — not one woman who is perfectly capable and incredibly impressive, able to take care of herself,” Clinton continued, referring to Kelly, “but all these women that I have fought for, worked for, stood up for, advocated for and want to be a president for, who may not have the opportunity to defend themselves, who may lose the right to exercise a personal choice if certain of the Republicans were to be successful, I don’t want that forgotten.”

Megyn Kelly certainly doesn’t need Clinton to come to her aid. I’m sure, though, if Clinton thinks Kelly is so impressive and fantastic, she’ll have no problem sitting down with Kelly for one of Kelly’s hard-hitting interviews…right? 

I think we all know the answer to that.

The most telling part of Clinton’s Q&A, though, isn’t that she’s feeling the love for a Fox News anchor, but that she singled out Marco Rubio as the most onerous woman-hater among the Republican field. The Clinton camp has been doing this for weeks, siccing Media Matters on Rubio’s Miami city commission record, using major media outlets to hit Rubio on his student loans, his four traffic tickets, and his “excessive” spending on seafaring vehicles and replacement refrigerators. The Clinton campaign isn’t in a position yet to target Republican contenders, but its clear they’re most worried about Rubio. Maybe his working class credentials and immigrant background make Clinton a little nervous. Or maybe it’s just the twenty year age gap. 

At any rate, Marco Rubio didn’t take Clinton’s swipe sitting down. While she tried to hit him over “choice,” for insisting that a life begins at conception to Chuck Todd, he hit her back by (at least, theoretically) forcing her hand on partial birth abortion. If Clinton will call him extreme for being pro-life according to his convictions, he’s going to question her support for a procedure that assumes that a child lacks humanity because it’s living and breathing a few inches up a birth canal. 

Clinton has yet to comment, but I suspect this will be interesting when she does.
