Juanita Broaddrick knows exactly what she would ask Hillary Clinton directly if she had the chance today.
“Why on earth did you not leave that man and report what he had done?”
Broaddrick, who accused former president Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978, thinks it was “a power thing” for the former first lady, and discussed her thoughts with HLN’s S.E. Cupp on “Unfiltered” Wednesday.
“You had to have known what he had done. I just want to know why,” Broaddrick added to her remarks aimed at Clinton, who declared Tuesday that her loss to President Trump in the 2016 election accelerated the “Me Too” movement.
“I think I know why, because it was a power thing. I think she wanted to go on and do some of the things that he had done and I think it was just a power thing,” she said.
Cupp asked if Broaddrick supported the idea that the scandalous affair with Monica Lewinskyand actions of the former president should be dramatized in film or television.
“I have no idea. I’m not really — I could care less whether he has a movie made about him,” she said. “I really don’t care. I just like to see him be responsible for all of the actions that he has done.”
Broaddrick was “doubtful” he will ever see justice.
Cupp also asked Broaddrick about her support of President Donald Trump.
“As a victim of sexual abuse yourself how do you conpartmentalize Trump’s history with sexual harassment and some of the awful things he’s been credibly accused of doing to other women?” the HLN host asked.
“Well, as far as how credible it is, I have no idea,” she replied. “You know, I’m a victim first. If anybody has ever been victimized by a man or a man by another man I certainly have sympathy for them but I cannot speak for or against, you know, what happened to them. I only know what happened to me in 1978 in that hotel room. I’m only aware of my own — you know, my own situation.”
Cupp sparked backlash last week when she offered the current first lady Melania Trump her unsolicited advice in the wake of reports of alleged affairs by her husband.
“Melania should do for this generation of girls what Hillary Clinton did not do for mine, and leave her jerk of a husband,” the CNN political commentator said in an on-air rant.
