Hillary Clinton Renews Defense of Bill’s Sexual Assaults

Clinton walked into a blaring hypocrisy of her own making.

Hillary Clinton walked into a blaring hypocrisy of her own making Thursday when a woman at a New Hampshire campaign event asked the presidential candidate about her record on sexual assault. For the past several months, Clinton tried to endear herself to feminists who want to come down harshly on anyone accused of rape. For example, Clinton tweeted Nov. 22, “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” But on Thursday, Hillary’s “war on women” emerged again. Sitting beneath a sign that emblazoned her logo and the words “fighting for us,” Clinton was asked, “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?” Those were some of the women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault in the ‘90s. But instead of believing them, Hillary attacked the women, ruining their reputations. By aligning herself with her cheating husband, Clinton, who once defended a child-rapist by dragging the victim “through hell,” kept her ticket to political power. In response to the question, Clinton responded, “I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence.” This is not the answer the people who believe men accused of rape are guilty until proven innocent wanted to hear. And frankly, as commentator Ashe Schow noted, it’s an answer that leaves many other questions.
