Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones said it’s laughable that Democrats are suddenly condemning sexual abuse when they didn’t lift a finger to help them when they accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment and rape.
“No human being was protected more than Bill Clinton was,” Broaddrick told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “And no human being was more harassed and ridiculed and trashed as Bill Clinton’s victims were.”
Broaddrick was responding to Democratic New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who said on Friday that Bill Clinton should have resigned over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Juanita, a retired nurse, accused Clinton of raping her in 1978 when he was the attorney general of Arkansas. Broaddrick said Hillary Clinton threatened her when she first came forward with her rape allegations.
Broaddrick said it’s great that the Democrats have had a wake-up call due to the sexual harassment scandals roiling Hollywood and the media, but it came “too late.”
“This great epiphany should’ve occurred 20 years ago,” Juanita said. “I should feel ecstatic about it but don’t.”
Paula Jones agreed that the liberal hypocrisy surfacing now is stunning.
The former Arkansas state employee sued Bill Clinton for sexual harassment in 1994 when he was president, saying he had harassed her when he was governor of Arkansas.
Jones’ lawsuit uncovered the bombshell revelations that Clinton had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. In 1998, Clinton settled Paula’s lawsuit by paying her a whopping $850,000 (that’s equivalent to $1.27 million today).
“They ridiculed us, we were called all kind of names,” Jones told Fox News. “We were not believed.”
Jones added: “Let me tell you: Hillary knew what he was doing. The only reason why they stayed together is because it was a political marriage.”
Bill Clinton was impeached but was not removed from office thanks to a coterie of liberal allies (starting with his wife Hillary) who protected him by viciously smearing his accusers.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a former Clinton acolyte, introduced a bill this week aimed at stamping out sexual harassment in Congress.
Now that Gillibrand has disavowed the Clintons and is championing women’s rights, Laura Ingraham asked Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones if they expected an apologetic call from Gillibrand.
The ladies literally laughed out loud. “Oh, surely not!” Jones quipped, shaking her head. Broaddrick chimed in: “I absolutely do not.”
Ingraham, an attorney, weighed in with her suggestion: “She should call you and apologize on behalf of all those so-called feminists who covered for Clinton all those years.”
