Fmr Obama adviser Dave Axelrod smacks Hillary on ‘Bill didn’t abuse Monica since she was an adult’ story

David Axelrod, trusted former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, smacked Hillary Clinton on Monday over controversial comments she made about husband Bill Clinton’s sexual affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Taking to social media Monday, Axelrod linked to a New York Daily News article on Clinton’s CBS “Sunday Morning” interview, where she was adamant that Bill should not have stepped down as a result of his dalliance with the then 22-year-old White House intern.

“Just guessing this isn’t the story Democratic candidates were looking for in the homestretch of the midterms,” Axelrod tweeted.

In light of the Democratic Party’s campaign to crucify Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over uncorroborated claims of sexual abuse, the former secretary of state defended Bill’s actions by noting that was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky “was an adult.”

Not a ringing endorsement of today’s politicized #MeToo movement, not that there aren’t Clinton apologists out there willing to blame Lewinsky for taking advantage of Bill!

But a common theme seen online suggests that the Clinton’s act is wearing thin with Democrats.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
