Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had a rough day today.

Excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s closed-door paid speeches to financial firms appeared to be made public for the first time when WikiLeaks published thousands of hacked emails from her campaign chairman.

The speeches reportedly show Clinton touting her "great relations" with Wall Street, and declaring that she wants "open borders" and free trade.

Meantime, a newly released recording of a 2005 conversation shows Donald Trump bragging in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women.

Both of these stories appear to be damning, but was one presidential candidate hurt more by today's revelations than the other?

On "On The Record With Brit Hume" tonight, Byron York said that this new information reinforces "pre-established themes" about both Clinton and Trump.

He explained that this supports the notion that Clinton is a different person when she talks to "fat cats" from Goldman Sachs and other millionaires, compared to how she speaks to everyday Americans.

York said that Trump's lewd comments from 2005 will appear to many people as just another example of him making offensive remarks about women.

Heidi Przybyla asserted that today's revelations will hurt Clinton's attempts at securing the support of anti-Wall Street Bernie Sanders supporters, and they will hurt Trump's attempts at appealing to female voters.

She added that how the the candidates respond to a bad day will be critical, especially with the second presidential debate looming.
