As protesters accuse her husband of rape, Clinton blasts Trump’s ‘scorched earth’ tactics

PUEBLO, Colo. — Hillary Clinton denounced “scorched earth” tactics by Republicans on Wednesday, saying Democrats must not allow themselves to turn away from the election in disgust.

Those tactics have recently included protesters accusing former president Bill Clinton of rape. Clinton’s campaign appearances were interrupted two days in a row this week by people shouting while holding or wearing T-shirts that brand her husband a rapist.

Her rally here was briefly interrupted by two demonstrators, but it was not clear they were accusing Clinton’s husband.

“Americans want to turn out in as large numbers as possible,” Clinton said to applause. “Reject the dark and divisive and hateful campaign that is being run.”

When it comes to divisive, Hillary is the last person that should say that. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones...........

Hillary and friends, just think of Trump's statements as metaphors. He's not going to nuke anybody, anywhere, any time.
But there's a time when diplomacy needs to be bolstered by apparent strength, not obvious weakness.
