Hillary Clinton aide: Donald Trump's remarks degrading, humiliating

The communications director for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign on Tuesday called Donald Trump's latest remarks about the Democratic frontrunner "degrading," but said the campaign wouldn't comment further.

We are not responding to Trump but everyone who understands the humiliation this degrading language inflicts on all women should. #imwithher

Palmieri was referring to Trump's comments at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan Monday night in which he hurled a number of insults at Clinton.

Trump, for example, said it was "disgusting" how Clinton had used the bathroom during the last Democratic presidential debate on Saturday, which led to her appearing on stage a few seconds late after a commercial break. He also said Clinton got "schlo****d" by President Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential race.

It's not the first time Trump has slammed women with sexist slurs.

After Fox News hosted the first GOP presidential debate in August, Trump insulted Fox anchor and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

He called her a "bimbo" and a "lightweight" for asking during the debate about his past insulting comments toward women.

"She had blood coming out of her eyes, she had blood coming out of her wherever," Trump said about Kelly in an interview on CNN. He later attempted on Twitter to clarify that comment by saying that he actually meant Kelly's nose.

At that same debate, Kelly said to Trump, "You've called women fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals." But before Kelly could finish her question, Trump said, "Only Rosie O'Donnell."

In a profile of Trump published in September by Rolling Stone, Trump insulted GOP presidential contender Carly Fiorina's appearance.

"Look at that face!" Trump said of Fiorina. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"

Trump, in defending himself against attacks that he is a sexist, told CBS News' "Face the Nation" in August that "I will be phenomenal to the women."

Trump, meanwhile, still leads the Republican presidential field with 28 percent support among GOP voters nationally, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday.
