White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blamed the media Wednesday for covering the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh and former President Bill Clinton very differently.
CNN contributor April Ryan asked Sanders about past sexual assault allegations from women that Trump has believed and how it differs from the current allegations against Kavanaugh.
“The president has taken this moment to say that he has been affected personally by all these allegations and he is picking and choosing,” Ryan said, “He has made Bill Clinton guilty.”
Sanders did not miss a beat, saying, “It’s interesting that you bring up Bill Clinton. Nobody wants to hear those accusers voices be heard but you are certainly happy to hear all the others.”
Ryan tried to argue but Sanders quickly responded.
“I’ve addressed this, I don’t have anything else to add,” she said.
Clinton was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct over the course of his political career ranging from fondling to rape. Lying about his sexual exploits with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky got Clinton impeached.
