In private, Hillary Clinton said she was “proud” of her relationship with her “life partner” Bill Clinton when she was asked about her “open marriage” during an event.Imagine that.
The private transcript of Clintons Q-and-A exchange with a parent was included in the Wikileaks release of emails from campaign chief John Podesta’s private email account.
The person asking Clinton the question noted that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was bad on women’s issues, but that Clinton was perhaps setting a bad example for children by sticking with her husband despite his marital affairs.
“You stay married, people call it an open marriage,” the person asked. “Good example, bad example? Am I totally off base?”
Clinton argued that Republicans had failed by attacking her marriage, and that voters cared about the issues more than her relationship with her husband.
“I feel like this is something that was dealt with in the nineties, and I am more than willing to have people draw their own conclusions,” she said. “But, I’ve been married now for a very long time and I’m very proud of that marriage.”
