Hillary Clinton today falsely called Donald Trump an ‘admitted sex assaulter’ and compared him to disgraced alleged sex abuser Harvey Weinstein.
The failed Democratic presidential candidate, who received thousands in campaign funding from Weinstein, told the BBC’s Andrew Marr ‘we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.’
She was referring to the Access Hollywood tape leaked during the campaign where Donald Trump was heard boasting about ‘grabbing women by the p****y’ in 2005.
In fact Trump has not admitted he committed sexual assault and said that he was indulging in ‘locker room talk’.
Mrs Clinton is in the UK to promote her hand-wringing book about losing the presidential election.
She told Marr: ‘I was really shocked and appalled because I’ve known him through politics as many Democrats have.
‘He’s been a supporter – he’s been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who have run for office in the United States.
‘So it was just disgusting and the stories that have come out are heartbreaking.
‘And I really commend the women who have been willing to step forward now and tell their stories.
‘But I think that it’s important that we not just focus on him and whatever consequences flow from these stories about his behavior but that we recognize this kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics.
‘After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.
