Former President Bill Clinton reportedly “casually encouraged” Donald Trump to run for the White House just months before he launched his presidential campaign, according to a New York Times reporter’s tell-all memoir.
In her new book, author Amy Chozick claims Clinton spoke with Trump about a potential presidential bid less than a year before the campaign began; discussing the issue over a round of golf at Trump National Golf Course.
“Less than a year before the campaign started, Bill and Trump golfed together at Trump National. Bill casually encouraged Trump to run, thinking his candidacy would roil the Republican field,” Chozick wrote.
“For all his political foresight, Bill spent most of the primaries oblivious that this reality TV schmo could win the Republican nomination,” she adds.
“Bill saw genius in Trump’s economic populism and understood he was the perfect candidate for what Clinton called the ‘Instagram election’ – an era when voters wanted only bite-sized solutions,” Chozick wrote. “Hillary didn’t do bite-size.”

HANNITY: It's Time for Bill Clinton's Day of Reckoning
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean called-out hypocritical Democrats and the mainstream media for ignoring and covering up Bill Clinton’s sex scandals for nearly 30 years, saying it’s time for the former President’s “day of reckoning.”
“With new allegations of sexual misconduct swirling around US Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, the left and the liberal media, they’re finally starting to re-examine their deplorable defense over the years of Bill Clinton’s long history of disturbing sexual abuse allegations,” said Sean.
“It’s taken almost 30 years for the liberal, destroy-Trump media to finally start admitting Bill Clinton targeted women for decades with criminal impunity,” he added. “Some in the media are coming to terms with what they did and what they said and how they covered it all up. The things that they did to protect Bill Clinton and discredit his accusers is beyond indefensible, it is shameful.”
“Hillary Clinton, she chalked it all up to some vast, right-wing conspiracy. This tells you everything you need to know about how Hillary Clinton see’s these victims,” Hannity said. “The Clintons over these years have been given a free pass by their political party and their friends and allies in the news media.”

BUSTED: Emails Show CLINTONS SHIELDED Weinstein for Decades
A bombshell report from the New York Times published Wednesday reveals what many had suspected for years; both Bill and Hillary Clinton knew about –and helped conceal- allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.
The article, titled “Weinstein’s Complicity Machine,” details the enablers surrounding the studio big-shot, including celebrities as well as prominent political figures; mainly the Clintons.
The author describes the “celebrity shield” that Weinstein had created around himself, noting “Chief among them were Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
“But two prominent women said they warned Mrs. Clinton’s team. In 2016, Lena Dunham, the writer and actress, said she was troubled by the producer’s visible presence during Mrs. Clinton’s presidential run,” the article adds.
Dunham reportedly sent an email to the Clinton campaign ahead of election day, telling staffers that “Harvey’s a rapist” and “it’s going to come out.”
“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” the actress told the campaign’s deputy communications director.
