Hillary Clinton on Monday condemned Donald Trump for his recent comments about Fox News host Megyn Kelly, adding that she thinks the real-estate mogul is "having the time of his life" leading the GOP presidential primary.
"Megyn Kelly is a strong woman and more than capable of defending herself against Donald Trump," Clinton told reporters while campaigning in New Hampshire. "I'm worried about what Republican policies will do to the rest of America's women."
Trump criticized Kelly for her questions in last week's Republican debate, saying she had "blood coming out of her wherever."
"It's all entertainment. I think he's having the time of his life, being up on that stage, saying whatever he wants to say," the Democratic presidential frontrunner said.
Clinton, who Trump has donated to in the past, said she went to the former reality TV star's wedding because she "thought it would be fun to go to his wedding because it's always entertaining. Now that he's running for president, it's a little more troubling."
And while the 2016 race has been consumed by Trump, Clinton attempted to shift the focus to the rest of the GOP field, specifically Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. In the debate Rubio said he does not support abortion exceptions for rape or when a mother's life is in danger.
"That is as offensive and troubling a comment as you could hear from a major candidate running for the presidency," Clinton said Monday.
Rubio explained his position during an appearance on "Meet The Press" on Sunday. "I personally and deeply believe that all human life is worthy of the protection of our laws. I do. And I believe that irrespective of the conditions by which that life was conceived, or anything else, and for me to be consistent on that belief," he told NBC News' Chuck Todd.
He added that he would not rule out allowing those exceptions if it led to fewer abortions.
