The Sexcapades of Bill Clinton

President Bill Clinton’s sexual past is fair game according to Los Angeles Times columnist Doyle McManus. He writes:

Is Bill Clinton’s sexual history fair game in the 2016 campaign? Donald Trump certainly thinks so.

“Hillary is an enabler,” he said in one interview. “She’s married to an abuser!” he said in another. “If she’s going to play the woman card, it’s all fair game,” he added.

The sad thing is, he’s right.

Hillary Clinton does play the gender card, relentlessly. She has frequently reminded voters that she would be the first female president and has cast herself as a champion of women’s causes.

In September, at a college campus in Iowa, she pledged to fight sexual assault, saying: “I want to send a message to all of the survivors. Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard, the right to be believed, and we are with you as you go forward.

Then she sent her husband, former President Bill Clinton, onto the campaign trail. Although he’s now beloved by millions, he’s both an asset and a potential liability. He was impeached in 1998 after an illicit affair with a 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. He was sued for sexual harassment by a former Arkansas state employee, Paula Jones (he settled with no acknowledgment of guilt). And he was accused of rape by a former campaign volunteer, Juanita Broaddrick; the charge was never adjudicated because Broaddrick waited 21 years before making it.

He goes on to write,

This isn’t about Bill Clinton’s philandering; voters decided what they thought about that long ago. And it would be grotesque to blame his wife for sins he committed against her.

But it’s reasonable to ask whether Bill Clinton, a public figure acting as a surrogate for his wife, lived up to her 2016 standards for treating potential survivors of sexual abuse.

The answer is: He didn’t. Twenty years ago, Bill Clinton and his associates did their best to discredit his accusers. The pithiest, as usual, was James Carville, who said of Paula Jones: “If you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.”

McManus defends Hillary for a comment she made to her friend, Diane Blair, that Monica Lewinsky was a loony tune:

…but that was a private comment that surfaced years later, not a public slam. And at the time, Bill Clinton had falsely assured her that Lewinsky was lying and that there had been no sexual relationship.

Really? Hillary clearly knew about Billy’s tendency to stray by the time Monica hit the headlines. So, she calls Lewinsky a loony tune because her faithful husband assured her that Lewinsky was lying? It looks like McManus feels obligated to run some interference for Hillary. That one doesn’t pass the laugh test.

Nonetheless, McManus is right. If Bill Clinton is called upon to be her spokesman and if she is posturing herself as a champion of women’s rights, it is appropriate to question her consistency.

More Poll Trouble for Clinton
  • Shocking!

    The LSM pursuing the issue, that is…

  • ohio granny

    Bill Clinton was not impeached for having an illicit affair, he was impeached for lying under oath. Hillary, along with James Carville, was in charge of the “bimbo eruptions” when Bill was running for president in 1992. She laughed about getting the rapist of a 12 year old off. She was not assigned to defend the rapist, she choose to do so. Hillary and Bill Clinton are liars and crooks and unfit and both should be an embarrassment to the democRAT party.

    • One can neither shame nor embarrass the shameless.

    • JWH

      I don’t criticize her for representing a rape defendant. In our system, every criminal defendant is entitled to an attorney. Somebody has to be that attorney.

  • jim_m

    Since Bill Clinton has been cavorting with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and has been flown by the pedophile to his Caribbean island estate and the accusation is that he has also partaken in sex with underage girls, yes, he is very much fair game.

    And since Hillary has run interference for his sexual misdeeds (or for those who are still in denial, his rapes and assaults) it is completely relevant.

    • Brucehenry

      I’ve heard these allegations before, years ago. Is there any real proof of any of them? I know he has flown with Epstein but I have a feeling the allegations of sex with minors has as much substance as your insistence on Chico’s “stolen valor.”

      That is, no substance at all.

      • jim_m

        I’ll take that as an admission of their truth.

        I’m willing to bet my paycheck that Bill has gone there and had sex with women that Epstein has had flown in for that purpose. Whether or not the individuals in question are actually women and not underage girls I am not willing to bet. I think that the position that Bill went there for anything other than sex is laughable.

        • Brucehenry

          LOL and I’ll take that as a “No, I can’t provide any proof.”

          • jim_m

            So you claim that he isn’t going there for sex? How idiotic of you.

          • Brucehenry

            You repeated the years-old allegation that he flew with Epstein to “partake of sex with underage girls.” I asked if there was any proof of that. You responded with a bet that he had sex with SOMEBODY but you don’t know who that might have been. You are a dumbass.

            LOL

          • jim_m

            That was a nonresponsive avoidance of the question.

      • retired military

        If it smells like a duck, walks like a duck, quack likes a duck, walks like a duck and lays duck eggs chances are it is a duck.

        One question please Bruce.

        If tomorrow Bill admitted to every affair of which he is accused would you be suprised (not by the fact that he admitted it but the fact that he did them).

        • Brucehenry

          Bill is a horndog and not a very nice man. But Jim accused him of pedophilia and when asked for proof moved the goalposts. Lame.

          It amuses me to see jealous wingnuts who WISH they could charm and attract women as Bill Clinton is capable of doing bitching about his sexual amorality. I noticed way back in the 90s that the very same Clinton haters who were screaming about Bill getting his knob gobbled would have done exactly the same given half a chance.

          • Scalia

            I noticed way back in the 90s that the very same Clinton haters who were screaming about Bill getting his knob gobbled would have done exactly the same given half a chance.

            Not me.

          • Brucehenry

            You are a very virtuous man. Not like most guys.

            I especially remember a business trip I took with my boss at the time. We spent a 3-hour car ride with him bemoaning Bill’s lack of morality. When we got to the town we were scouting, we went to a local bar and struck up a conversation with two half-drunk women. He was furious with me for refusing to take one of them to my hotel room (I was and still am married, AS WAS HE). This kept the other one from going to his hotel room, ya see.

            But the more relevant examples were like the aforementioned Speaker. And then of course Denny Hastert, who replaced THAT Speaker, turned out to be a molester of young boys in the “Christian” college where he was a coach.

          • Walter_Cronanty

            And when Mrs. Hastert runs for President on the basis of being a champion of children’s causes, your bringing up Denny will be relevant.

          • Scalia

            Especially if she has Denny campaigning for her.

          • Commander_Chico

            What did the two bar sluts look like?

          • Brucehenry

            LOL pretty decent as I remember. It would have been the perfect crime, so to speak. But I put promiscuity behind me when I got married.

          • jim_m

            Not based on your projection up thread saying that everyone would have done the same as Bill. Your own words betray the real you.

          • Commander_Chico

            Plus, the boss did or would have tried to take the hotter one.

          • jim_m

            Perhaps the truth is closer to the fact that you are a dirtbag and choose to ease your conscience by telling yourself that everyone else is just as much of an amoral scumbag as you are.

            I assure you that this is not the case.

          • It was the perjury, for which Clinton subsequently surrendered his law license.

          • Scalia

            I believed (and believe) that Clinton disgraced the office and compromised its integrity. Moreover, his sworn testimony is what landed him in legal trouble. Many on the Left would like to think his impeachment was all about sexual hypocrisy, but in reality, it was his behavior in the courthouse, not the cat house, that was relevant.

          • Hank_M

            ” Many on the Left would like to think his impeachment was all about sexual hypocrisy”

            No, that was just to confuse the issue. They knew better (most anyway) but chose to be dishonest.

          • A distinction they cannot make.

          • retired military

            Yes Bill is a horndog.
            Would he stoop to pedophilia. I dont know. My father always told me you can generally judge someone by the company they keep. I find that adage to be true most of the time.

            Yes Livingston ( I believe his name was and I could care less to google it ) did resign for an affair. The main problem I and many had with Bill is not his affairs but the perjury that he committed and the coverups.
            I personally would have said “whatever, shit happens” if he had came out and said in the beginning “hey we hit a rough patch in our marriage and I strayed”
            I think others would have felt pretty much the same. Instead we get Bill committing perjury and Stand by your man Hillary covering up the scandals. The entire “family” is pathetic and continues to be to this day including Chelsea et al. I honestly feel sorry for her kids.

            Hillary and company go on their “War on women ” campaign and yet she is the worse abuser and enabler of them all. Plus she had help from the NOW gang. Find a renown feminist who will say a bad word against Bill or Hillary.

            Sorry Bruce. Cant stand Hypocrits.

          • Commander_Chico

            The Clinton years were good times. Prosperity, mostly peace, and reducing the national debt.

            I said he has been accused of pedophilia not that he was a pedophile. Learn to read you fucking idiot.

            Yep like “the vast right wing conspiracy”, “Bill is innocent” “Hillary didnt know about Bills affairs” “no classified information in the emails” “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”

          • jim_m

            Let’s all pause to recognize that Bruce refused to answer RM’s question.

          • Commander_Chico

            I’ll answer it. No, it would not surprise me to find out that Bill Clinton fucked everyone he’s alleged to, including Barbara Streisand in the White House.

            The “rape” claims are just typical scorned-woman bullshit.

          • jim_m

            Typical answer of the misogynist. He’s a rapist but we already know that you approve of rape.

            And an answer from you does not excuse Bruce from responding.

          • Commander_Chico

            “Misogynist” lol. OK, feminist.

            Jim of Smith College.

            Every rape charge against Bill has the stink of fakeness and desperately stale pussy.

          • jim_m

            It’s really telling that Rick Rice prefers your comments to mine. While the self righteous prick criticizes Hooson, he cannot find the time to say word one about you and gladly accepts your support for his bullshit.

            The people you walk with say a whole lot about your faith Ricky.

          • Commander_Chico

            Maybe he appreciates that I don’t turn every discussion into vituperative personal attacks.

            Rick is a believer, he’s got a.point of view like an Irish priest (not Shanley or Geoghan). He warned Paul about hell, which I guess would be listening to you rant profane insults forever.

            You are on shaky ground when I get an upvote from Cheeko

  • Paul Hooson

    I’m convinced that Bill Clinton has a big sex drive and enjoys women, but I’m far less convinced that he’s another Bill Cosby. There’s been plenty of former girlfriends of his that will agree to that.

    • Commander_Chico

      Yeah, Bill Clinton is a high grade alpha male. He had the looks, height, charm and power to get most women to spread for him. He did not need drugs like Cos -he WAS the drug for these women.

      • Paul Hooson

        I have a business friend who owns a record store and Monica Lewinsky used to hang around him because she saw his business as power. He could have gotten into her pants with little effort. She also hanged around a Lewis & Clark College professor, because she was intoxicated with his power as well. She wanted to hang around and sleep her way into power. She was a willing participant with Bill Clinton, he hardly had to persuade her to hang around or drop her panties. – Gez, I’m a 60 year old Jew who has a strip club, and I had girls who wanted to be with me as well. Some women like to hang with men they see in power…

        • Commander_Chico

          It’s amazing what a woman will do for a guy they see as powerful, even if the “power” is a product of charisma or even evil behavior. Killers have their groupies – look at Manson. A short ugly loser with a harem of young women.

        • Your soul is in mortal danger…

          • How typical.

          • Paul Hooson

            Sadly, you are right. I’m a Jew who loves God, but also very mortal as a human as well.

          • We are all flawed Paul, every one… but many of us are fixable…

            You? Are.

          • Paul Hooson

            I’m actually a very generous and decent person for the most part. I’ve done a lot of volunteer work for Jewish charities as well as the St. Vincent DePaul Society. I don’t smoke, drink little, don’t use drugs…but, I love the women. Besides, if I’m too bad of a boy, they’ll probably spank me or something…

  • JWH

    I don’t know (and I don’t care) whether Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades are “fair game.” I honestly consider them old news, and I have no desire to rehash them.

    But going after them is a smart way to attack Hillary. Clinton-era nostalgia and Bill Clinton the campaigner are Hillary’s two biggest assets. Bring back Bill’s scandals, and you dull the nostalgia. Attack him as a sexual predator and you damage his ability to rally left-wing audiences to Hillary’s cause.

  • Paul Hooson

    Very wise. A happy president is also a safe one….
