Come again? MSNBC host says it’s time for Dems to have a ‘real reckoning’ with sex claims against Bill Clinton

Finally, MBC’s Chris Hayes is starting to believe everyone deserves a fair shake.

Even the women who accuse Bill Clinton of sexual assault.

As the political left and the political right continue to deal with an avalanche of sexual abuse allegations, from Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey, one prominent political figure continues to stay above the fray, seemingly unscathed by the storm that’s seemed to catch any man, right or left, who’s even looked sideways at a woman.

And yet, the allegations against former President Bill Clinton are far more Weinstein-like than the touching, however inappropriate, that Moore and some of the others are accused of – allegations that, if true, would result in a lifetime in prison rather than the political spotlight.

Don’t these ladies deserve a fair shake? After all, everyone should be believed, right Hillary?

At least one liberal media figure is beginning to see the hypocrisy, and understands that a “real reckoning” is coming with Mr. Clinton and the multiple women who insist he abused them and that it continues to be ignored and covered up.

On Friday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeted, “As gross and cynical and hypocritical as the right’s ‘what about Bill Clinton’ stuff is, it’s also true that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against him.”

Hayes then shared a Buzzfeed article from last year about Juanita Broaddrick’s allegations of rape against Clinton in the 1970’s when he was the attorney general of Arkansas, followed by a quote detailing a modus operandi that sounds all-too familiar to many of the recent allegations against alleged-abusers.

While some have have tried to morally equivocate by comparing the allegations against Clinton to Trump’s crude remarks on the Access Hollywood tapes, Broaddrick is having none of it. Before appearing with Paula Jones and other Clinton accusers before Donald Trump’s second debate with Clinton last year, Broaddrick said, “Actions speak louder than words. Mr. Trump may have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s any comparison.”

Will the hurricane continue to spare Mr. Clinton? Only time will tell, but if Hayes is right, a “reckoning” is coming his way sooner rather than later.
