Trump plays word association game: Hillary Clinton? ‘Evil’
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump played a game of word association early Tuesday, calling his Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton, “evil.”
“In a certain way, evil,” he responded when Clinton’s name appeared during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
The outspoken billionaire offered kinder words for Hillary Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“Intelligent,” he replied when questioned about the nation’s 42nd chief executive.
Trump also threw one-word jabs at some of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination.
He called Jeb Bush a “loser” before describing Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz as “confused” and “nasty,” respectively.
The New York real estate tycoon additionally could not resist jokingly calling himself “brilliant” once his own name appeared.
Trump next defended repeating a supporter who called Cruz “a pussy” during his rally in Manchester, N.H., the night before.
“I was just repeating what she said so everyone could hear,” he said of the incident. “I was doing everybody a favor.
“The world is politically correct. It was a great moment. We were all just having fun. There was a standing ovation. It went totally wild.”
Trump then boasted that the size of his rallies dwarves other White House hopefuls from both political parties.
“We get the biggest crowds, far bigger than Bernie,” he said of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
“[But] he gets the second biggest, far bigger than any other Republican,” Trump added of the independent Vermont senator.
