Hillary post demands rape victims have a ‘right to be believed’ — unless they’re accusing Bill?

billhillarylaughing0914Hillary Clinton set social media buzzing with rage Monday – and sneering with disbelieve — with a Twitter post that stated every woman who claims she’s been sexually assaulted has a right to be believed.

But that can’t include when the person accused is a client of Hillary’s apparently – or when it’s Hillary’s own husband.

To hear Bill Clinton’s wife claiming a woman has a right to be believed when she accuses a man of rape is close to unbelievable.

Maybe she thinks the country doesn’t remember Juanita Broderick, the woman who told a national television audience in 1999 that Bill Clinton had raped her in a hotel room in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas.

Or Kathleen Willey, who told the country in another nationally televised interview in 1998 that then President Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her in the Oval Office in 1993.

Or Paula Jones, the former Arkansas state employee whose lawsuit accusing Bill Clinton of sexual harassment and assault when he was governor of the state led indirectly to the Monica Lewinsky scandal that led to Clinton’s impeachment.

But that’s just Bill’s treatment of women.

Maybe Hillary thinks the country has forgotten her own defense of a man accused of raping a 12-year-old when she was an attorney in Arkansas in the mid-1970s. Clinton literally laughed about getting the man off — even when she clearly believed him guilty.

Leave aside the constitutional right that any person accused of a crime as the right to a presumption of innocence — so what Hillary actually believes is irrelevant to a criminal case.

It’s the hypocrisy that’s galling.

The Clinton crimes against women are almost too long to catalog, and the couple’s slimy supporters ability to defend them by smearing their accusers is legendary. But she has the indecency to release a social media posting claiming a woman who claims rape has “the right to be believed”?

Social media was on fire Monday.

The left’s shameless double standard when it comes to sex is legendary, but even by the hypocritical standards of Hillary Clinton, this is over the top.
