It must be election time. You can tell because someone has wheeled out the walking coughing fit known as Hillary Clinton in order to “fire up” the liberal base.
Clinton, whose loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election was a wake up call for the democratic party, has been laying somewhat low over the course of the last two years. Sure, she’s popped up to promote her book of excuses called “What Happened”, in which she lays out a wild number of theories as to why she was unable to defeat the unconventional republican candidate while ignoring the bare truth: The nation didn’t want another career politician in the White House.
So, as we head into yet another contentious election in the 2018 midterms, Clinton has slithered out of her hiding hole in order to lend her infamy to the proceedings. Her first order of business: Apparently compare her husband’s proven sexual promiscuity to Brett Kavanaugh’s accusations of attempted sexual impropriety.
Of course, this came during an interview with CNN.
The interview was conducted by the left-wing Christiane Amanpour. It was made up of 30 minutes of softballs that allowed Hillary to tee off on whatever she wanted (primarily President Trump) without any tough follow ups.
The most outrageous moment, however, came at the end when Amanpour spread some breathtaking fake news. In reference to the Clintons upcoming speaking tour, Amanpour asked:
“Obviously you’re going to be prepared to have questions about that moment in 1998, the impeachment, the allegations of sexual harassment against your own husband. Are you prepared to answer those questions? Is he prepared to answer them? And how do you see that similar or different from what President Trump is being accused of and Kavanaugh and others today?”
Oh boy…this is one loaded question for the former first lady.
Here’s Hillary’s answer:
“There’s a very significant difference. And that is the intense, long-lasting partisan investigation that was conducted in the ’90s. If, you know, the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves.”
This is a farce of a response, especially given that Bubba Clinton was finally forced to admit what had occurred between he and Monica Lewinsky.
And, let us not forget the other women whose claims were so credible, in fact, that Bill Clinton was forced to pay out settlements to one of them.
Bill Clinton was not accused of harassment. Among other things, he was credibly accused of rape (Juanita Broaddrick), of exposing himself (Paula Jones), and of groping a grieving widow in the Oval Office (Kathleen Willey).
What’s more, over the exposure allegation, Clinton was forced to settle a lawsuit filed with Paula Jones for $850,000, which was $100,000 more than Jones originally asked for.
In essence, Hillary is correct: There is a significant difference between the allegations leveled against Brett Kavanaugh and the reality of her husband’s behavior. That difference is going to be quite important moving forward in this #MeToo nation.
