The GOP presidential candidate thinks he did a good thing by not belittling the first woman to accept a major-party presidential nomination by bringing up her husband's infidelity. Classy.
In an interview with Sean Hannity after his defeat, Trump said, “I didn’t want to say—her husband was in the room along with her daughter, who I think is a very nice young lady—and I didn’t want to say what I was going to say about what’s been going on in their life. I decided not to say it. I thought it would be very disrespectful to Chelsea and maybe to the family. But she said very bad things about me… it’s a disgrace.”

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani echoed Trumps statements.
“I know he would have liked to have said—except for the fact that Chelsea Clinton was in the audience—and that is that [Hillary Clinton] enabled and supported a president who is a disgrace to the White House.”
However, those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Trump has a well-documented history of misogyny and Giuliani’s affair while mayor of New York City is also widely known. Still, it’s no surprise that these men would use Bill Clinton’s indiscretions against the Democratic presidential candidate, considering their own history.
