Former President Bill Clinton continues to use his star power on the presidential campaign trail for wife Hillary. But his rants and outrageous comments have also done harm to her presidential bid.
Should Bill stop speaking on behalf of Hillary to prevent further damage? Or is his “star power” helping her campaign?
Recently, Bill joked that Bernie Sanders supporters would "shoot every third person on Wall Street." This comment comes shortly after Bill ranted in response to an interruption from racial justice protesters at a rally for Hillary in Philadelphia. The protesters disrupted the rally to point out Bill's 1994 crime bill, his involvement with mass incarceration, and Hillary's "super-predators" comments in 1996. Bill said the protesters support murderers — causing backlash for racially insensitivity and missing the point of the protest.
But Hillary's campaign and others still support Bill campaigning, saying there's no better example of #ImWithHer than former President Clinton.
