LOS ANGELES -- Unfit. Dangerous. Bizarre. Demagogue. Dictator.
The Democratic front-runner has notably escalated her rhetoric against the presumptive Republican nominee as she has made her way through California before Tuesday’s primary.
At times she has sounded almost like a stand-up comedian, cracking jokes about the reality-TV star turned presidential candidate’s wealth and mocking his various business ventures. But at other times, she has gotten downright serious in her approach to Trump, who mocks her repeatedly as “crooked Hillary.”
Here is a compilation of Clinton’s sharpest new Trump zingers:
San Diego, June 2, 2016
“This isn’t reality television. This is actual reality.”
“You know, there’s no risk of people losing their lives if you blow up a golf course deal. The stakes in global statecraft are infinitely higher and more complex than the world of luxury hotels.”
“We all know the tools Donald Trump brings to the table — bragging, mocking, composing nasty tweets. I’m willing to bet he’s writing a few right now.”
“He is not just unprepared. He is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.”
“Now, I will leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants.”
“Imagine if he had not just his Twitter account at his disposal when he’s angry, but America’s entire arsenal. Do we want him making those calls? Do we want his finger anywhere near the button?”
San Bernardino, California, June 3, 2016
“We are trying to elect a president, not a dictator.”
Westminster, California, June 3, 2016
“If he gets anywhere near the White House, you know what he’s going to do. He’s going to Trump you.”
