<p>Contributing to the media&#39;s rush to discredit Donald Trump&#39;s resurrecting of former President Bill Clinton&#39;s marital infidelities in his campaign against wife Hillary, Bloomberg&#39;s <em>With All Due Respect </em>co-host John Heilemann chided Trump on Thursday for <strong>&quot;play[ing] the rape card&quot;</strong> and predicted it&#39;d be of no benefit to him going forward towards November.</p>

<p>Heilemann told fill-in co-host Nicolle Wallace that Trump&#39;s strategy <strong>&quot;could backfire&quot;</strong> and even though he was unsure when it would, he recognized that <strong>&quot;</strong><strong>[i]t is not false&quot;</strong> that Clinton faced accusations in decades.&nbsp;</p>
