HYPOCRITE: Hillary Clinton Says Husband’s Affair With Intern Half His Age Not Abuse Of Power

Democrats are all “do as I say, not as I do.” And no Democrat is a greater hypocrite than Hillary Clinton.

Clinton was a vocal critic of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing, and the mainstream media ate it up with a spoon. She decried the so-called “sexual assault” — when, 36 years ago as a 17-year-old, Kavanaugh allegedly groped a 15-year-old at a drunken high school party.

In all her MSM interviews, no one ever asked Clinton about her own husband, who was accused by multiple women of sexual assault — actual rape — and who carried on a sick and sordid sexual affair with a White House intern his daughter’s age (See: Oval Office, cigar).

But finally, a “journalist” had the cajones to ask the former first lady about Bill Clinton’s numerous affairs.

During a CBS “Sunday Morning” interview, correspondent Tony Dokoupil asked Hillary if her husband should have stepped down after his affair with Monica Lewinsky — and his blatant lie to the American people when he said “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

“Absolutely not,” she said.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” Dokoupil asked.

“No. No.” Why, you ask? Hillary said the relationship was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky “was an adult.” At the time of the affair, Clinton was 49, Lewinsky was 22.

Bill Clinton was also accused numerous times of sexual assault. In 1994, Paula Jones initiated a sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton, claiming that he pulled out his penis and told her to “kiss it.” In 1998, Kathleen Willey alleged that Clinton groped her in a hallway in 1993. That same year, Juanita Broaddrick alleged that Clinton had raped her in the spring of 1978. Bill also carried on an affair with lounge singer Gennifer Flowers, and Arkansas State Troopers said they often procured women for the then-governor.

But for Hillary, it’s all good. During the interview, she quickly changed the subject to President Trump and Kavanaugh.

“But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?” Hillary said. “So, there was an investigation [of Bill], and it, as I believe, came out in the right place.”

She also rejected any comparison between her husband and the accusations — all unfounded, mind you — against Kavanaugh. “It further undermined the image and integrity of the court,” she said. “And that troubles me greatly, it saddens me, because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.”

“The View” co-host Joy Behar mocked Hillary’s answers. “What she just did is exactly what Republicans do, they changed the subject. And that’s why we never get anywhere in the discourse.”

For her part, Lewinsky disagreed with Hillary’s take.

“What transpired between Bill Clinton and myself was not sexual assault, although we now recognize that it constituted a gross abuse of power,” she wrote in Vanity Fair.

Same ol’ Hillary.
