In an attempt to tie President Donald Trump to shamed director Harvey Weinstein, Hillary Clinton outright lied and stuck her foot in her mouth simultaneously.
Speaking to BBC’s Andrew Marr, Clinton falsely and flatly stated that “we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.”
It’s a reference to the now infamous secret recording between then candidate Trump and Access Hollywood’s” Billy Bush. Trump was referencing being famous and bragged that when you are famous “[women] let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.”
The keywords being “they let you do it,” implying consent.
While Trump apologized for the comments, he never admitted to actually grabbing anyone. In fact, Trump called the crude exchange little more than “locker room talk.”
Apparently, that was good enough for many Americans, because he went on to win the presidency, despite the vast amount of pundits who predicted the secret tape would do him in.
Perhaps, that’s one of the many reasons Clinton can’t seem to let the past go. Unless it can be linked to her like it is with her buddy Weinstein.
“I think that it’s important that we not just focus on him and whatever consequences flow from these stories about his behavior, but that we recognize this kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics,” she said.
“There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic,” Clinton said.
But when the subject switched to her own husband, former President Bill Clinton reaching settlements on sexual assault cases with women, her tune became defensive.
“That was subject of a huge investigation in the late 90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past,” she insisted, before again redirecting to President Trump and lamenting her defeat to him in the presidential election.
“The really sad part of the campaign was how this horrific tape, what he said about women in the past what he said about women during the campaign, was discounted by a lot of voters,” she said.
Marr asked if she thought President Trump and Weinstein were similar, but interestingly he did not ask the same about Clinton’s husband.
“I’m not a psychologist, I can’t draw that conclusion. There are credible reports from women about both that sound very similar,” she said.
