Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has been teasing audiences about bringing out her âsecret weaponâ â her husband, obviously â to joinÂ her campaign. GOP front runner Donald Trump in particular isnât impressed, calling Bill Clintonâs affairs âfair game.â
The Washington Examiner reports that Trump was interviewed this morningÂ byÂ Today Show hostÂ Savannah Guthrie, who noted TrumpâsÂ mention of former White House internÂ Monica LewinskyÂ andÂ asked,Â âAre you saying an alleged extra-marital affair, that of course he has now admitted, is that fair game?â
It was a nice attempt at a save by Guthrie, but Trump was having nothing of it. âIs it alleged? I donât think thatâs alleged,â correctedÂ Trump, to whom Guthrie replied, âNo, heâs admitted it.â
âIf heâs admitted it, you donât have to use the word alleged,â replied Trump, concluding his mini journalism lesson.
@SavannahGuthrie I guess Bills "alleged" affair with Monica is along the same lines as you being an alleged journalist

Not even Hillary could manage to cover this one up except to suggest it was part of a right-wing conspiracy.
