Hillary Clinton asks for landslide victory to rebuke Trump’s ‘bigotry and bullying’


As Trump went on the attack, a confident Clinton encouraged her backers to double down on their efforts during the final weeks of the 2016 campaign

Hillary Clinton hinted at a possible landslide in the 8 November election, exhorting several thousand supporters at a San Francisco fundraiser on Thursday to help her have the kind of victory we need to serve as a rebuke to Donald Trump.

On a day when Trump went on the attack calling women who have accused him of inappropriate touching and kissing horrible, horrible liars an increasingly confident Clinton encouraged her backers to double down on their efforts during the final weeks of the fractious 2016 campaign.

Everything we care about is at risk, she said. If you can help me to have the kind of victory we need, that stands as a rebuke of all the bigotry and bullying weve seen, then together, together we will build the future that all of us, particularly the children of our country, deserve to have.

Just one day earlier, the floodgates began to open up on Trump, as women accused him of putting his hands up a womans skirt on an airplane, shoving his tongue down a reporters throat at his Mar-a-Lago property in Florida, bursting into beauty pageant dressing rooms and ogling the semi-clad contestants.

Not one but two incidents from 1992 surfaced in which the Republican standard bearer then 46 told young girls that he would be dating them in the not-too-distant future.

During the San Francisco fundraiser, Clinton rued that the disturbing stories just keep coming.

The whole world has heard Trump brag about how he mistreats women, Clinton said. But its more than just the way he degrades women, as horrible as that is. He has attacked immigrants, African Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, POWs, Muslims and our military, which hes called a disaster.

Theres hardly any part of America that he has not targeted, she continued. Now, it makes you want to turn off the news. It makes you want to unplug the internet. Or just look at cat gifs. Believe me, I get it. In the last few weeks, Ive watched a lot of cats do a lot of weird and interesting things.
