Ask Hillary if It's Okay to Call Women Bimbos

Trump got attention this week (as if there's any time he doesn't get attention) when he tweeted this.

But back in 1992 when Bill Clinton was running for president, the term "bimbo eruptions" was used to refer to the women who were alleging to have had affairs with him. He was also accused of rape and sexual battery. Hillary Clinton helped manage the "nuts and sluts" campaign to portray those women as the problem. A journalist needs to ask her if she thinks it's okay to call women bimbos.

For the first couple days, the conversation will be about Trump backhandedly calling Kelly a bimbo. Then it will be about anyone using the term "bimbo". Then it will be about Hillary and "bimbo eruptions".
