America’s campaign for president is quickly devolving into an ugly fight over who has treated women worse: Donald Trump, whose White House bid is floundering, or Bill Clinton, who isn’t on the ballot.

Trump’s campaign is now openly signaling it will spend the election’s final month re-litigating Bill Clinton’s marital affairs and unproven charges of sexual assault, as well as his wife and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s unverified role in intimidating the women who were involved. But Trump is a deeply imperfect messenger: his attacks on the Clintons’ treatment of women are being overshadowed by a flood of allegations that he kissed and groped women without their consent.

The New York Times and the Palm Beach Post reported stories about three women who alleged Trump had inappropriately touched them.
