Hillary Clinton stepped in it. For the first time Hilary was forced to confront the issue which has the potential to derail her bid for the White House. Not surprisingly the question did not come from a member of the media but from a voter in New Hampshire.
Only weeks ago Hillary’s campaign released a video aimed at winning the support of college women saying those sexually attacked on campus “deserve to be believed.”
“You recently came out to say that all rape victims should be believed. But would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Paula Jones? Should we believe them as well?” the voter asked.
“Well, I would say that everybody should be believed at first, until they are disbelieved based on evidence,” was Hillary’s lame reply. Then she tried to laugh the question off.
To be very clear, there is not an iota of evidence that discredits or calls into question the veracity or motives of those women who were sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and who have had the courage to talk publicly about it. In fact Bill Clinton paid $850,000 to Paul Jones to settle a civil suit against him. He was also disbarred and forced to pay a $125,000 fine to the Bar.
Doubling down Hillary even said this week that she had no idea who Juanita Broadderick is when in fact Hilary herself sought out and tried to intimidate Broadderick at a public reception after the incident in which her husband lured Broadderick to a hotel room where he brutally raped her twice and bit her upper lip so viciously that he almost severed it. Broadderick’s moving description of her abuse at the hands of Bill Clinton can be seen on YouTube in the breathtaking interview she gave to NBC’s Lisa Myers.
Hillary Clinton has been the point person in the effort to discredit and disparage those women unlucky enough to be Bill’s victims. It is Hillary and her flunkies who called Bill’s victims sluts, bimbos, whores and trash. As Hilary herself said, “these women are trash, who will believe them.” It was not that long ago that Hillary unleashed the “nut and slut” campaign against Monica Lewinsky, the 22-year-old White House intern that Bill Clinton used as his personal humidor, branding the intern as a “stalker” and blaming her for the Oval Office Sex Bill conducted with her.
This issue threatens Hillary because it speaks to the core assumption and narrative of her campaign; that Hillary is an advocate for women and girls, a claim designed to win a disproportionate percentage of the women’s vote. In fact, Hillary is a lifetime abuser of women. As my book The Clinton’s War on Womendocuments, while Bill has assaulted and raped dozens women physically, Hilary has assaulted and raped them psychologically.
