Donald Trump Praises Bill And Hillary Clinton In This 2008 Interview

‘Hillary Clinton is a great woman and a good woman.’

Donald Trump’s moral core has been one of the hardest things to pin down during his life in the public eye. Trump has switched his political affiliation at least five times and changed his mind on major issues such as the Iraq war, abortion, nuclear proliferation, gun control, and torture. Trump has also done a complete about face on his feelings for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her husband, former president, Bill Clinton.


Donald Trump and the Clintons have been friends over the years and have said positive things about each other in the press. Trump has admitted to donating money to the Clintons’ political campaigns and Bill and Hillary attended Trump’s 2005 wedding to Melania Knauss. Now, a recently-unearthed interview from November 2008 shows Trump praising the Clintons with such passion, it raises questions about his true feelings for his Democratic rivals.

Trump on Hillary Clinton’s political future:

Her history is far from being over, I’d like to answer that question in another 15 year from now. I think she’s going to go down at a minimum as a great senator. I think she is a great wife to a president and I think Bill Clinton was a great president.

Trump went on to praise Bill Clinton’s presidency:

You know, you look at the country then, the economy was doing great. Look at what happened during the Clinton years: we had no war the economy was doing great, everybody was happy. A lot of people hated him because they were jealous as hell.

Trump on Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2008 Democratic primaies to Barack Obama:

Hillary Clinton is a great woman and a good woman... thought they roughed her up pretty good. I think she’s a wonderful woman. I think she’s a little bit misunderstood. You know, Hillary’s a very smart woman, a very tough woman, that’s fine … but she’s also a very nice person. And I know Hillary and I know her husband very well, they’re fine people

I thought she was roughed up. … 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, but I thought she was perhaps unnecessarily roughed up. He took some pretty hard hits.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
