Pat Buchanan joined the sexist attacks on Hillary Clinton last week, bursting out laughing in an interview with the Catholic television network EWTN as he called Clinton “extremely shrill” and said that when he has heard her on television, “I thought my cat had come back to life.”
EWTN host Raymond Arroyo, who started the program by asking Buchanan if he thought of himself as “the John the Baptist of Donald Trump,” asked him to discuss polls showing a tight general election race between Trump and Clinton.
Buchanan responded that he thinks Clinton is “in deep, deep trouble,” adding that he thought that she was an “outstanding candidate” when she ran for president in 2008 but that she’s “not as good a candidate anymore.”
“She’s, excuse me, she’s extremely shrill at times. Maybe it’s because they pick the tapes and put them on the air —” he said, unable to finish his sentence before bursting out in laughter.
“I thought my cat had come back to life,” he said. “No, it’s very loud and shrill and it does not come off well.”
“Yeah, her voice, yeah, she’s been shouting a lot,” Arroyo agreed.
