Matthews on Trump's Talk of Lewinsky's Blue Dress: "There's a Corner of The Unpleasant He's Not Willing To Go"


MSNBC's Chris Matthews weighs in on Donald Trump talking about "the unpleasant" that is former President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky and the infamous blue dress at a campaign rally on Saturday. Trump said "it shows what the hell they are," referring to the way the Clintons operate.

"Her husband, Bill Clinton... remember what he said he did not have sex with that woman? Then a couple weeks later, 'Oh, you got me.' Oh, I'm so glad they kept the dress. I'm so glad they kept that dress. Alright? It's great. You know why? Because it shows what the hell they are," Trump said at the rally.

Politico reports Trump will use the Clinton sex scandals as part of his debate strategy this fall.

The person picked to be Hillary Clinton's sparring partner in her upcoming debate prep sessions is expected to confront her about the death of Vincent Foster, label her a rapist's enabler, and invoke the personally painful memories of Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers

Matthews recalled an era where "you wouldn't talk about the dress the way he did" at the weekend rally.

"There was a sense not too many years ago when you wouldn't talk about the dress the way he just did," a nostalgic Matthews said. "Because we are really talking about DNA evidence and the whole routine. It's hard to believe there's a corner of the unpleasant he's not willing to go into."
