Juanita Broaddrick, the Arkansas woman who accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her, slammed Hillary Clinton for her response to the flood of sex abuse claims against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
After an extended silence regarding the accusations against Weinstein — a longtime Democratic donor and fundraiser — Hillary Clinton issued a three-sentence statement claiming to be “shocked and appalled” by the allegations.
Broaddrick, who is now 74-years-old, ripped Clinton for the statement. “Hillary, you weren’t shocked or appalled,” she wrote. “You have lived with that same behavior from your husband for decades.”

Broaddrick has for decades accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978 while he was the attorney general of Arkansas, and has claimed that Hillary helped her husband cover up the alleged rape.
Broaddrick spoke out against Hillary throughout the 2016 election, offering her personal story as a reason the Clintons can’t be trusted. (RELATED: Hillary’s Website Scrubbed Of Statement Saying Rape Victims Have A ‘Right To Be Believed’)
“I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me,” Broaddrick wrote on Twitter in January 2016. “I am now 73….it never goes away.” That tweet has been shared on Twitter more than 100,000 times.
