Donald Trump slammed Hillary Clinton as “totally unbalanced” during a rally Saturday night, playing up her mental state a day after Clinton said she “short-circuited.”
“She took a little short-circuit in the brain, she has problems,” the GOP nominee said at a rally in Windham, New Hampshire. “I think the people of this country don’t want somebody who’s going to short-circuit up here.”
On Friday, Clinton acknowledged she may have “short-circuited” when she tried to clarify statements on her private email server that she made in several interviews this past week.
During testimony before the House Oversight Committee in June, FBI Director James Comey has contradicted some of Clinton’s public statements, including whether Clinton had material marked classified on her private server.
In a 57-minute speech in which he repeatedly consulted his notes and even read off a lengthy fact-check of Clinton’s statements on her email habits, Trump stayed mostly on-message — with none of his usual rehashing of various feuds with his GOP primary rivals.
“False statement No. 1, Hillary Clinton claimed reason for her illegal use of her private, insecure email was that it was more convenient to use just one device,” Trump said. “Fact, the FBI director said Hillary used several different devices, not one.”
“In other words, Hillary’s secret email server existed for the reason we all know, to keep her emails from ever being read by the public.”
Listing off statements Clinton had previously made, such as how her email was secured and that she has turned over all of her work-related emails, Trump read off statements from Comey that contradicted what Clinton said.
“Unstable Hillary, she lacks the judgment, temperament, and moral character, to lead this country,” Trump said at his rally. “She is a totally unhinged person.”
