Prior to Thursday's third and final
presidential debate, conservative radio host Michael Savage called on
Donald Trump to ask Hillary Clinton about her “lesbian lovers” as
described in a recent National Enquirer story.
The Trump-aligned supermarket tabloid
on Wednesday published a “world exclusive 9-page special
investigation” into Trump's rival.
“[Her fixer] arranged a lesbian romp
for bi-sexual Hillary with a prominent Hollywood identity!” the
paper wrote. “[He] squealed about a lusty rendezvous he arranged
for Hillary that FINALLY proves the lesbian rumors that have dogged
her for decades!”
Savage told his audience that Trump
should use the story during the debate.
“All he’s got to do is say, 'Look,
yesterday a big publication came out in the National Enquirer
from a man who worked for you for many years which says that you had
many women lovers while your husband was president, is that still
true?' It would bring the house down. Tell me it wouldn’t bring the
house down. 'Do you still like women in that way?' Nothing wrong with
it. We’re not saying it’s morally wrong, we’re asking you if
you still like women after what your husband did to you. He could
even leave it that way, now that I think about it,” Savage
Savage said that moderator Chris
Wallace – whom he nicknamed “Meatloaf Jr.” – “would have a
stroke on the stage” if Trump asked Clinton about the allegations
but “the audience would love it.”
Trump did not follow Savage's advice.
