‘Why not me, Kathleen and Juanita?’ Paula Jones doesn’t buy Hillary’s ‘all women should be believed’ claim

Paula Jones blasted Hillary Clinton for her blatant hypocrisy in claiming all women should be heard.

The woman who sued former President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment minced no words calling out the double standard now evident in the allegations against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“It’s unbelievable. If she feels like all women should be heard and I know she was quoted saying that, that all women should have a right to be heard. I totally agree with that,” Jones told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday.

“Then why not me, Kathleen and Juanita?” she asked, referring to Kathleen Wiley, a former White House volunteer aide who accused Clinton of sexually assaulting her in 1993 and Juanita Broaddrick, who alleged Clinton, then-Arkansas Attorney General, raped her in 1978.

“Why didn’t she allow us the right to be heard? And listen to us to see, have an investigation. Talk to us. Even when she was running for president. It never did happen,” Jones said.

The former Arkansas state employee alleged that then-Gov. Bill Clinton propositioned her and exposed himself to her in a hotel room in Little Rock in 1991. Her lawsuit against Clinton in 1994 when he was president ended with an $850,000 settlement on Jones’ behalf.

Hillary Clinton was asked about the allegations against her husband and her stand on due process in light of Kavanaugh being accused of sexual assault when he was a teenager during an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on Tuesday.

Carlson noted that it wasn’t just that Hillary Clinton did not believe Jones, or even want to have her heard, but that she “attacked you personally as someone who was a mercenary and someone who came out of a trailer park chasing $100 bill,” recalling former Clinton adviser James Carville’s dismissal of Jones saying that anyone would seek litigation if “you drag a $100 bill through a trailer park.”

“Have you ever gotten over that? I don’t know if I would,” Carlson asked.

“No. It’s very difficult. It’s very, it’s frustrating that she can say this stuff now. Even though with the #MeToo movement which is wonderful, you know, that it is coming out. It should be about all women. All women,” Jones said.

“All women should have a right to be heard. They are the ones making it political. It has nothing to do with political stuff. This is not about Republican or Democrat. This is not about what a left wing or a right wing conspiracy,” Jones added.

“It’s about what is right and what is wrong. It should not matter what the political status is of the person that has done the assault. Period,” she said.

Broaddrick echoed the sentiments in an interview Wednesday on Fox News.

Jones added that feminist leaders such as Gloria Steinem nor any of the #MeToo movement leaders have ever reached out to her.

“I’ve never, ever heard anything. I have never been, no, I have never been talked to by any of these people that support the #MeToo movement,” she said.

“Nobody has ever talked to me personally to say ‘You know what? We should have gave you a chance, we should have gave you an opportunity,'” Jones noted. “I was alone. I was alone in this vast world trying to prove what had happened to me. I never got any kind of support from any women whatsoever. It was disheartening.”
