Ruth Marcus: Trump Suggesting Hillary’s a ‘Dried up Old Lady’ with Stamina Attack

‘Hillary Clinton gave him a good smack down on her display of stamina’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
MARCUS: "He didn’t have a lot of choices. He was asked about presidential look. So instead of talking about the presidential look which I think is inherently a dangerous and gender-laden path for him to go down, he went down the alternative path of stamina which isn’t much better. Hillary Clinton gave him a good smack down on her display of stamina. Also stamina, I think has undeniable implications. It is a two-pronged attack on both her age and gender. I just don’t think it is born out by the facts and it has the capacity to offend a lot of voters that I think he hoped to get last night."
