Democratic front-runner, Hilary Clinton says she no longer finds Trump to be funny.
For months, Clinton brushed off Trump as a form of entertainment. But now, after his latest proposal to ban Muslims entering the United States, she says she’s no longer laughing.
“I no longer think he is funny,” Clinton told Seth Meyers in an interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Thursday. “You know, I think for weeks, you and everybody else were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter, but now he has gone way over the line.”
“What he is saying now is not only shameful and wrong, it is dangerous,” she added.
On Sunday, Trump, the front-runner Republican candidate, called for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims coming into the United States.
Throughout the week, Clinton, who once attended Trump’s wedding because she said she thought it would be “entertaining,” has assailed Trump for his proposal.
“You know he does traffic in prejudice and paranoia. It’s not only shameful, it’s dangerous,” she said during a campaign event. ”
