This is so predictable:
The allegations raised against Donald Trump in a recent New York Times article are nothing compared to the Clintons’ history, the presumptive Republican nominee said in an interview with Fox News’ “Hannity” aired Wednesday night.
“For example, I looked at The New York Times. Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey?” Hannity asked Trump, according to a transcript of the show. “In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”
Trump replied, “And rape.”
“And rape,” Hannity repeated.
“And big settlements, massive settlements,” Trump added. “And lots of other things. And impeachment for lying.”
“Smearing,” Hannity said. Trump then mentioned Bill Clinton being disbarred for five years in Arkansas. “You know, he lost his law license, OK? He couldn’t practice law. And you don’t read about this on Clinton,” he said.
Of the three women Hannity mentioned, Jones accused Bill Clinton of exposing himself to her at a Little Rock, Arkansas, hotel in 1991, while Willey has accused Clinton of groping her in 1993.
Broaddrick, who was known as Jane Doe No. 5 during the Paula Jones trial before coming forward, alleged in 1999 that Clinton had sexually assaulted and raped her in 1978. In 1999, Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, called Broaddrick’s allegations “absolutely false.”
Broaddrick, speaking to Breitbart News in an article published earlier Wednesday, said the Times should devote its energy to investigating claims of sexual assault against Bill Clinton.
Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have refused to comment on the issue during the campaign, though Trump has previously hinted that he would go after the former president’s history with women.
Remember when the Benghazi story hit the news, and Mitt Romney made a statement blaming the terrorist attack on White House incompetence? Remember how the media immediately attacked Romney for “politicizing” the issue?
It turned out that Romney was right and the White House was lying to us. Yet somehow that was Romney’s fault.
Here’s another one:
Search and rescue teams are searching the Mediterranean near a Greek Island for an EgyptAir flight that crashed shortly after taking off from Paris, France. There were 66 people on board, including 3 children. Authorities believe the plane has crashed, but they have not said exactly what happened or if the crash was terrorism related.
The Egyptian military said they did not receive any kind of distress signal. Greek authorities say the plane made abrupt turns before vanishing and dropping 22,000 feet. While terrorism is certainly a possibility, there has been no confirmation. That didn’t stop presidential candidate Donald Trump from taking to twitter.
Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!

Some pundits have already criticized Trump for not offering his condolences but instead declaring terrorism before receiving any confirmation. Egyptian authorities have also warned people not to jump to conclusions about what happened.
It is common knowledge that when planes suddenly fall out of the sky there is usually foul play involved. Accidents take place during take-offs and landings. Terrorism happens in mid-flight. Especially in that part of the world.
So Donald Trump said what pretty much everybody was thinking. For that he must be punished, because we aren’t allowed to say what we think anymore. We might offend somebody.
