Tucker Carlson said the 25-year Clinton era is now officially over as a growing chorus of former allies have turned against Bill and Hillary Clinton.
“The society-wide backlash against sexual harassment by powerful producers, actors and politicians has finally turned and bit the Clintons themselves,” Carlson said Friday on his Fox News show.
Carlson explained: “For decades, they’ve held control because they and their acolytes have ruthlessly stamped out numerous charges of sexual harassment and assault brought against Bill Clinton. Suddenly, out of nowhere, that’s no longer working for them.”
As an example, Tucker pointed to Democratic New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who filled Hillary Clinton’s U.S. senate seat when she was appointed secretary of state in 2009.

Once a fierce proponent of the Clintons, Senator Gillibrand did an about-face this week by declaring that Bill Clinton should have resigned during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Gillibrand’s disavowal of the Clintons follows other former allies such as Donna Brazile and Elizabeth Warren. They join an avalanche of other liberals who have turned on the Clintons now that they’re no longer useful to the Democratic Party.
The tide has been slowly turning against the Clintons ever since Hillary lost the 2016 presidential election despite the support of mainstream media, Hollywood, billionaire mega-honors, the Democratic Party and many members of the GOP.
In June 2017, liberal CNN pundit Van Jones slammed Hillary for wasting $1 billion on her disastrous presidential campaign.
“The Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color,” Jones said. “They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest! They took a billion dollars — a billion dollars — and set it on fire!”
