Hillary’s making women’s issues the centerpiece of her campaign—and at least one voter is calling her out on her hypocrisy.
Hillary has long made the claim that all sexual assault and rape victims should believed—even releasing a TV ad in September where she said, “I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault. Don’t let anyone silence your voice.
You have a right to be heard. You have a right to be believed. We’re with you.”
During a campaign stop Q&A in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton got asked by a female audience member, “Would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and/or Paula Jones?”
Hillary’s cold response: “I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence.” She then quickly moved on to the next question.
While Bill Clinton’s most famous affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky was consensual, Bill has a long history of putting the women around him in uncomfortable situations.
Paula Jones accused Bill of propositioning her and exposing himself to her in his room at the Little Rock Marriott when he was Governor of Arkansas in 1991. Her lawsuit subpoenaed Bill’s other women—the infamous act of perjury, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” that got Bill impeached was a deposition for Jones’s lawsuit—and the Clintons eventually paid her $850,000 to settle the suit and make her go away.
Juanita Broaddrick accused Bill of more than that: she accused him of rape. Broaddrick was a volunteer for one of Bill’s earliest campaigns: his race for Governor of Arkansas in 1978. Having coffee together in her hotel room, Clinton made advances on her.
In a 1999 NBC interview, Broaddrick said:
“Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip… I tried to pull away from him… And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me. … It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.'”
She added, for clarity, “It was not consensual.”
Kathleen Willey, meanwhile, accused Bill of sexually assaulting her in the Oval Office in 1993. Since then, Willey has been a thorn in the Clintons’ side—calling out both Hillary and Bill for their chilly silence.
On Hillary, Willey scolded, “She just chose to ignore the plight of all of his victims, thus enabling him to continue to abuse and rape women in the future.”
