WASHINGTON, Aug 11 : Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton denounced her Republican rival and former supporter Donald Trump on Monday, saying he went "way overboard" in a crude verbal assault on a female journalist.
She also took issue with the rest of the broad Republican field of candidates seeking to succeed President Barack Obama, saying their stances on women's rights and health care could set back the cause for women's equality in America.
"I think the guy went way overboard -- offensive, outrageous. Pick your adjective," she told reporters on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.
Trump sparked a furore when he suggested that popular Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever" when she took a forceful line of questioning to him during last week's Republican debate. ?AFP
