“The Cosby thing is a weird deal and he’s got himself some big problems, and you almost have to ask Bill Clinton,” Trump said on the Howie Carr Show, as reported by BuzzFeed News

The White House hopeful has been engaging in a war of words with the Clintons, calling the former president "one of the great women abusers of all time" after Hillary Clinton accused Trump of sexism himself.

“It would be a very interesting question to some day ask him,” Trump continued. “Certainly he has a lot of strong charges against him and it’s pretty bad stuff. And it only got brought up because [Hillary Clinton] said I have sexist tendencies.” 

Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women since the 1960s. The comedian is facing criminal charges for the first time over an alleged 2004 assault. 

Trump recently dared Clinton to talk about women’s issues on behalf of his wife's presidential campaign. 

“I hope Bill Clinton starts talking about women’s issues so that voters can see what a hypocrite he is and how Hillary abused those women,” Trump tweeted Saturday, referring to sexual allegations made against Clinton. 

At least five women claim to have had extramarital affairs with Clinton. Two have accused the former president of sexual harassment and one of rape.
