Hillary Clinton’s campaign is refusing to officially comment on a new set of misogynistic remarks made by Donald Trump, but her communications director urged supporters to condemn the billionaire’s statements.
Campaign comms chief Jennifer Palmieri tweeted on Tuesday morning that "everyone who understands the humiliation" of Trump’s language should voice their anger using the hashtag #imwithher. She also responded to supporters on the platform.
We are not responding to Trump but everyone who understands the humiliation this degrading language inflicts on all women should. #imwithher— Jennifer Palmieri (@jmpalmieri) December 22, 2015
At a Monday night rally, Trump said Clinton’s bathroom break during Saturday night’s debate was "too disgusting" to talk about, and commented that she was favored to win the 2008 Democratic nomination, but was "schlonged" instead.
Palmieri’s hashtag got the attention of Twitter, including at least one famous Clinton supporter.
Earlier this week, Trump demanded Clinton apologize for saying he is "ISIS’ best recruiter" during Saturday night’s debate. This summer, he also commented that Fox News host Megyn Kelly had" blood coming out of her wherever" when she hosted an early Republican debate.
