Women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault slammed the former president for playing the victim in a recent interview.
Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey were “outraged” over Clinton’s response to questions about former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, and whether he had ever apologized to her.
The former president became angry and deflected a question by NBC’s Craig Melvin, declaring instead that he already had apologized publicly to Lewinsky and that the public was on his side. He pushed back and accused Melvin of “giving one side and omitting facts.”
“Kathleen Willey, you watch that interview,” Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said during her show Monday. “Why am I stunned? He has not learned anything about this experience. He’s actually a smart guy. I’m almost speechless. Your reaction?”
“I was speechless too,” Willey responded. “I was outraged.”
“I could not believe the words that were coming out of his mouth and he was so arrogant and pompous about the whole thing. He actually believes — I think he actually does believe that he didn’t do anything wrong,” she said. “He never will. He doesn’t get it. That’s just the way it is.”
Broaddrick, who has accused Clinton of raping her, recounted how she told Clinton to “go to hell” in 1991 when he tried offered her a “profuse apology,” claiming he was a “changed man” and now a “family man.” Broaddrick was “flabbergasted,” she shared, but later began to feel bad that she had dismissed Clinton’s apology.
“I began to feel a little bad that I had said that. I kept thinking well, maybe he really meant that,” she said. “Then lo and behold…a week later, after he apologized, he announced he was running for president.”
Willey told Ingraham if Clinton called her today to extend his apologies over what he done, she would tell him the same thing Broaddrick did those many years ago.
The women were aghast at Clinton’s apparent self-defense and how he presented himself as the victim in the Lewinsky case that eventually led to impeachment proceedings against him.
“And nobody believes that I got out of that for free,” Clinton said in the interview, noting how he left the White House $16 million in debt.
“I saw this decrepit, angry old man who was trying to play the victim card,” Broaddrick said. “The same man who 40 years ago raped me. It was disgusting.”
Willey blasted Clinton for his remarks about having a sexual harassment policy in place when he was governor of Arkansas as well as his claim that he “had two women chief of staff when I was governor. Women were over-represented in the attorney general’s office in the ’70s.”
“He probably had a lot of women around so he could, you know, assault them,” Willey said.
Broaddrick concluded that in the end, she doesn’t believe there is “any redemption in regard to Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
