JEFFREY LORD: [Hillary Clinton] wants to be treated as an equal, Bob. What other candidate for president gets to, you know, sashay back on to the debate stage well after the debate has started? This is her personality. This is what she's like.
CHRIS CUOMO (HOST): Oh Jeffrey, you can't say that the delay coming back is indicative of a personality.
ALISYN CAMEROTA (HOST): The women's bathroom was much further in that locale than the men's bathroom. And her staff had even talked about that, that that was going to be an issue. I mean, that's not fair.
CUOMO: How can you defend these kinds of tactics? Would you ever suggest if you were running a guy's race, yeah you should talk about her going to the bathroom, say it's disgusting and then say you don't want to talk about it and, you know, use the word schlong and, you know, do that kind of stuff? Because people dig it.
LORD: Chris, when you as a candidate do something that is as obvious and public as she did, this wouldn't be a subject of discussion if she --
CUOMO: You make her going to the restroom as an insult, as it was a tactic an affront. Where do you get that?LORD: Chris, it is endemic of her personality.
