Democrats who are criticizing President Donald Trump over allegations of an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels are guilty of using a "double standard" when judging him over the claims while not making similar judgments about former President Bill Clinton, former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said Monday.
"The difference was, it was while he was president, it was an intern at the White House and he lied about it under oath," Bossie during his guest appearance on Fox News' "Outnumbered," while arguing with network contributor Marie Harf about why the reports matter.
"I think people are tired of these scandals," Bossie added. "There is no evidence of Russia collusion, now CNN and others are trying to shift to the salacious stories. It is ridiculous, the American people are tired of it."
Clinton ran four campaigns, despite the reports of his connections with several women, and "we thought scandals would defeat them, and they didn't."
Harf, however, told him that for years Republicans told her "over and over and over again" that personal morality matters.
"Suddenly, all those people who told me personal morality mattered don't seem to think it's a big problem now, with Donald Trump having multiple affairs," said Harf, who served in the past as senior adviser of senior communications for Secretary of State John Kerry. "Either morality matters or it doesn't."
In an interview airing on "60 Minutes" Sunday, Daniels said she was threatened by a man in Las Vegas after she sold her story about her sexual encounter with Trump.
Trump is also facing allegations from another woman, former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who has also claimed to have had an affair with Trump in 2006. McDougal has filed suit in an attempt to be released from a non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2016, while Trump was seeking the presidency.
