Hillary Clinton has been all over Twitter and the press railing against Brett Kavanaugh like a good little liberal, accusing Trump and the Republicans of all manner of crimes against women in their confirmation of the new Justice, and insisting that women must be believed when they come forward to tell their tales of sexual misconduct. But despite dutifully carrying water for the Democratic Party agenda these past few weeks, the former First Lady is still unable to admit that her husband, President Bill Clinton, was one of the biggest #MeToo perpetrators in the country. In an interview with CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” Clinton denied that her husband should have done anything differently in the aftermath of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
“In retrospect, do you think Bill should’ve resigned in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal?” asked reporter Tony Dokoupil.
“Absolutely not,” Clinton said.
“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” Dokoupil asked.
“There are people who look at the incidents of the 90s and they say, ‘A president of the United States cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern; the power imbalance is too great,'” he said, not unreasonably.
“Who was an adult,” Hillary said of Lewinsky. “But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules? There was an investigation [of my husband], and it, as I believe, came out in the right place.”
It seems this has to be said over and over again, but the investigation into Bill Clinton was about a fraudulent land deal, not the many (many) accusations against him from women he used and discarded throughout his political career. Even when Ken Starr turned his attention to Monica, the focus was on whether or not President Clinton had lied under oath. So to say that there was a thorough investigation of Bill Clinton through a kind of #MeToo lens…that’s completely disingenuous and quite false.
But of course, Hillary’s not the only one blind to Democrat faults when it comes to this issue. Even today, Keith Ellison and his DNC cronies refuse to take seriously the allegations against him from an ex-girlfriend, who says he was verbally and physically abusive. And there has yet to be a full-scale reckoning of Bill Clinton’s long history of crimes against women, many of whom have much more tragic stories to tell than Monica Lewinsky…or Christine Blasey Ford, for that matter. Hypocrisy is baked into the liberal soul, though, so we’ll continue to be utterly unsurprised.
