Donald Trump took a swing at Hillary Clinton at a Friday night rally, using President Bill Clinton’s affair to counter Clinton’s attacks on his standing on women’s issues. 

{mosads}”Nobody in this country was was worse than Bill Clinton with women. He was a disaster,” Trump said at a rally in Eugene, Ore. “I mean there’s never been anybody like this and she was a total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives. I mean have you ever read what Hillary Clinton did to the women that Bill Clinton had affairs with? And they’re going after me with women. Give me a break, folks.” 

Trump has been under pressure to repair his poor standing among female voters. Clinton has frequently attacked him for his past comments about women and on abortion and for saying she’s playing the “woman card.” 

“Bill Clinton was the worst in history and I have to listen to her talking about it?” Trump said. “And just remember this, she was unbelievably nasty, mean enabler and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful. So put that in her bonnet and let’s see what happens, OK?”

Trump previously said that Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinski and several other allegations are “fair game” in the race. 

“That certainly will be fair game. Certainly if they play the woman’s card with respect to me, that will be fair game,” he said in December.
