"Then said his disciples, Lord" - Bill vs. Trump


Bill vs. Trump

The key figure in this 2016 US Presidential Election was Bill Clinton, though it was his wife Hillary that was running for presidency.

Bill Clinton was blamed of his mischievous conduct involving a young woman in the White House when he was president.  It really harmed honor of President Bill Clinton.  He was a kind of laughed at globally, though he could avoid forced resignation.  But this incident did not result in divorce of the couple.  However, the wife Hillary started to make her own political career, becoming a senator and then running for the Democratic primary election for the 2008 Presidential Election, though, in vain.

Hillary Clinton became the Secretary of State under Obama's presidency and then ran for the 2016 Election.  These movements were all driven by her passion to save herself from her husband's scandal.   The underlying factor for her intention to be US President is her anger and shame caused by Bill Clinton at the end of the term of his presidency.

If Hillary Clinton had been elected this year, Bill Clinton would come back to the White House with her next year, which however cannot be accepted from an ethical viewpoint.
On the other hand, Donald Trump is really a deplorable person.  He virtually evaded tax, conducted a kind of fraud in his business, abused women, and insulted Hispanics, Muslims, women, etc. with mean and violent words.  Such a billionaire should be prevented from assuming the office of the US President.

So, the issue is which sin is graver, Bill Clinton's or Trump's.

As a matter of fact, American voters have judged that Bill Clinton would soil the White House more than Trump.

It should be noted that 53% of white women voted for Trump.  Those women must have been determined not to vote for Hillary from the beginning.  But opinion polls could not catch their minds, probably because surveyors assumed that it was Hillary vs. Trump but not as Bill vs. Trump.

Indeed, if Bill Clinton had not committed a kind of adultery in the White House, Hillary should have been supported by 60% of white women to defeat Trump this November 8.  Truly, a man and wife cannot be separated even in terms of political popularity.  The spirit of America forbade Bill Clinton to come back to the White House.
