Hillary Clinton slammed her presidential rival Donald Trump after leaked audio revealed lewd comments he had made about women years ago.
The Democratic presidential nominee joined others in condemning Trump for boasting in a 2005 audio recording about being able to “grab” women “by the p—-.”
This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president. https://t.co/RwhW7yeFI2

While Trump’s vulgar comments could not be defended even by his supporters, Clinton’s stance as morally superior backfired with many on social media, including Fox News’ Sean Hannity who condemned it as “selective moral outrage.”

@HillaryClinton Hahahahaha!! Very funny! And you think Bill, who had extramarital sex in the Oval Office should be FIRST GENTLEMAN? Oxymoron

The Republican presidential nominee released a video apologizing for the remarks which he said were from a private conversation which he characterized as “locker room banter.” He also accused former president Bill Clinton of making “far worse” comments to him.
Twitter users blasted Clinton for pointing a finger at Trump while ignoring the fact that she stood by her own husband who repeatedly cheated on her and whose victims she callously shamed.

Again, I’m not defending Trump’s remarks. I’m pointing out utter hypocrisy.
