The man who served as an adviser to Hillary Clinton veered from the liberal rulebook that all women should be believed.
Despite his former boss’s assertion that “You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed and we’re with you,” Philippe Reines took a jab at Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who has accused former Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978.
Reines weighed in on a New York Times article titled, “No One Wants to Campaign With Bill Clinton Anymore,” telling the National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein that Democrats have to make up their own minds about how they view the Clintons, especially in light of the #MeToo movement.
But when Weinstein broached the subject of Broaddrick and her allegation that Clinton raped her when he was the attorney general of Arkansas, Reines had a quick response.
“Juanita Broaddrick was never really seriously…” Weinstein began on the podcast of “The Jamie Weinstein Show” but was interrupted by Reines.
“Juanita Broaddrick is full of sh*t…” he said.
“So you don’t think she’s telling the truth about that?” Weinstein asked.
“I do not think she’s telling the truth. More importantly, Ken Starr did not think that she was telling the truth. For me, I assume Ken Starr pulled no punches,” Reines said, referring to former the independent counsel who did not think Broaddrick was a “credible witness” when she made her claim in 1999.
“You think Ken Starr would have gone easy on Bill Clinton?” Reines asked.
Although Weinstein suggested that Broaddrick may have been afraid to come forward in 1978 when her rape allegedly happened, a fear many alleged victims have claimed prevented them from disclosing the assaults when they happened, Reines was not buying it.
“She seems very, very credible. She didn’t want to come forward–” Weinstein began.
“She didn’t want to come forward, my ass,” Reines interjected.
Certainly not the rhetoric liberals like Hillary Clinton have been touting when it fits the narrative. Twitter users reacted to the “lack of class” from the Clinton crony.

Showing the true lack of class we’ve all come to EXPECT from a Clinton crony, Philippe Reines dismisses Juanita Broaddrick @atensnut as “full of shit”.
Naturally, his is the last word on the subject . . . ?
