MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Hillary took an extended bathroom break Saturday night, and Donald Trump didn’t miss an opportunity to punish her for it.
Reportedly, Hillary Clinton had three-and-a-half minutes during a break in last night’s Democratic Presidential debate to use the restroom. However, the 68-year-old Hillary was gone so long that the debate moderators started back up without her. She finally came back out on the stage and took her place behind the middle podium, saying “sorry”.
In the wake of her absence, the internet has been abuzz about why her now-revealed bathroom break took so long. Her campaign claimed it was a longer walk to the women’s room than to the men’s room.
Sunday afternoon, her Republican rival Donald Trump unleashed a tirade on Hillary, mocking her stamina.
“I think my words represent toughness and strength,” Mr. Trump said. “Hillary’s not strength. Hillary’s weak, frankly, she’s got no stamina, she’s got nothing.
“Hillary couldn’t even get back on the stage last night,” Mr. Trump continued. “Nobody even knows what happened to her. It’s like she went home and went to sleep! She couldn’t get back on the stage last night I’ll tell you why. Because we need a president with great strength and stamina and Hillary doesn’t have that.”
Likening her to President Barack Obama, whom the right has called “weak” on many issues, Mr. Trump said “We can not have another bad president like we have right now. We need a president with tremendous intelligence, smarts, cunning, strength, and stamina.”
