A peculiar thing is happening on the left.
Amid the tsunami of complaints about sexually inappropriate behavior by people in positions of power, be it powerful Hollywood producers, A-list actors or politicians, a long overdue reckoning involving former President Bill Clinton is starting to emerge.
For too long, hypocritical left-wing television personalities who shape pop culture in America have covered for Slick Willie — while pouncing on Republicans like Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore.
Nowhere is this more apparent than on “The View,” where the liberal ladies have gone after Moore with a vengeance. Women who have called the victims of Clinton’s sexual aggression “tramps” and characterized Hillary as the real “victim.”
Beginning with co-host Joy Behar, who attacked the women Clinton targeted, to include one who claimed rape, during a discussion in October on how Hillary handled the controversy during a presidential debate.
“’I would like to apologize to those tramps that have slept with my husband.’ Maybe she could have said that,” Behar exclaimed.

Granted, Behar did later apologize, but there’s no mistaken the intended sentiment.
If there was any confusion, co-host Whoopi Goldberg cleared it up when she declared Hillary to be the real victim, even going so far as to suggest Bill Clinton’s targets were “lucky” Hillary, who attacked them all with a vengeance at the time, was so “polite.”
“She is the victim! She is the victim here,” Whoopi said of Mrs. Clinton.

And while former President Clinton now finds himself facing renewed scrutiny for his behavior, it seems the ladies on “The View” are not fully on board with the Millennials driving that effort.
In the clip below, they have a long, drawn out discussion about why Sen. Al Franken should not be expected to resign after a second woman came forward to say she was groped by the Minnesota Democrat.
Groping that Behar characterized as being “careless.”
