Donald Trump's charge that Hillary Clinton was a "nasty, mean enabler" for her husband's infidelities is an "absurd claim," bound to backfire for the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, says Jill Abramson, former executive editor of The New York Times.

"Trump should be ready for a backlash," Abramson writes in the Tuesday edition of London's Guardian newspaper.

"His outrageously sexist remarks repel many women. Still, Trump is making the absurd claim that Hillary Clinton, not him, is waging a war on women."

Abramson notes that one Democratic candidate in Arkansas is running an ad against his opponent who supports Trump, with the billionaire real-estate tycoon's "most sexist comments" popping up on the screen.

"Could the sex scandals of the 1990s become an issue that harms Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign? Probably not," Abramson writes.

"Trump faces a gender gap of historic proportions and unfavorable ratings from seven out of 10 women voters … That's why he is desperately seeking wedge issues to undermine support from Clinton's constituencies."
