Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

While the 2005 Hollywood Access video was damning, another newly resurfaced recording will shatter every personal attack Donald Trump’s has made on Hillary Clinton.

“I think her history is far from being over,” Trump said of Clinton in a NY1 interview that aired Nov. 12, 2008. “I’d like to answer that question in another 15 years from now,” he added.

It’s hard to believe Trump said those words less than a decade ago.

Trump continued the interview praising both Hillary and Bill Clinton, personally and professionally.

“I think Hillary’s a great wife to a president and I think Bill Clinton was a great president,” Trump said. “You know, you look at the country… the economy is doing great.”

That’s right, in November 2008, Trump thought America was already great, near the peak of a major recession. Let that sink in.

“Look at what happened during the Clinton years,” Trump continued. “I mean we had no war, the economy was doing great, everybody was happy, a lot of people hated him because they’re jealous as hell… but Bill Clinton was a great president.”

Trump not only admired Clinton at the time, he seemed to express remorse over her failed run for the presidency.

“Hillary Clinton is a great woman… a wonderful woman… a very smart woman… a very tough woman,” Trump rattled on, adding that Clinton could often be “misunderstood” but he was sad to see her get “roughed up” in the primaries.

“I know Hillary, and I know her husband very well,” Trump confirmed. “I’m not knocking the other side; you know, you want to win a battle, so if it gets a little bit nasty, it is politics, and politics is a tough game.”

  1. The consummate chameleon. Of course he’ll come up with an excuse for those glowing tributes, such as temporary insanity, or claim that one of his alter-egos was in control of him at the time, and now he’s in a “Do-Over” phase.
    It’s anyone’s guess which resurrection of the “Norman Bates” choices will appear next.

      Get 90 bucks /daily for working over the internet from your own home for several hrs daily… Get regularly paid each week… All what is required is a pc, connection to the web, along with some spare-time…

    • RED says:

      His justification, if he even bothers with one, his supporters are complete morons so he may not even bother, will be that he only said those things because he wanted something, he was paying for play, in the system, and he will claim it’s only more proof of corruption.

    I don’t watch TV, has this gone mainstream?

    Was he lying then or is he lying now? drump’s golden mouth always spouts golden globs of stinking crap.

    • Sand_Cat says:

      Probably both times. The guy seems to be incapable of speaking the truth.

      • Thoughtopsy says:

        As someone else stated… to be a liar you have to be able to recognise and recall the truth. I don’t believe Trump can do that.

        Trump is a “Bullsh!t Artist”.

        He has no real memory of anything he’s ever said, nor is he aware of the truth itself in relation to what he says. He simply says whatever is most expedient at the time.

        In a way he’s the freest person ever.
        He can literally say anything and not be constrained by memory or logic or reason or truth or consistency.
