The biggest apologist for Bill Clinton’s record of sexual misconduct has been and remains to this day Hillary Clinton; she’s still standing by her man. In an interview on CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” Hillary was asked by Tony Dokoupil, “In retrospect, do you think Bill should’ve resigned in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal?” “Absolutely not,” Hillary responded. Dokoupil then asked, “It wasn’t an abuse of power?” Clinton shot back, “No. No.” Once again Dokoupil pressed the issue, noting, “There are people who look at the incident of the ‘90s and they say, 'A president of the United States cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern; the power imbalance is too great.’” “Who was an adult,” Hillary interjected.
Wait a second — wasn’t the #MeToo movement ignited precisely because of instances of powerful men using their positions of influence to take advantage of women in vulnerable positions beneath them? The Clinton/Lewinsky scandal is a textbook example — she was a 22-year-old intern and he was the 49-year-old president of the United States. And that’s not to mention Bill’s even more horrific record when he was governor of Arkansas.
