Liberals' Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton's Behavior Is Cynical

Liberals' Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton's Behavior Is Cynical

Kirsten Gillibrand said Bill Clinton resigning during the Monica Lewinsky affair would have been the "appropriate response". Brooks said. "How much did tolerance of Bill Clinton create the environment in which the rest of this was given permission?"

"Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob".

"Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC". "Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat".

Joseph Spector writes for Gannett's Albany (N.Y.) Bureau.

The graphic jab came after Gillibrand leveled some of the highest-level criticism yet at former President Clinton.

The criticism is striking considering Gillibrand filled Clinton's New York Senate seat after she was appointed as secretary of state under the Obama administration, and the two have been close ever since.

Gillibrand's comment drew a strong rebuke on Twitter from Hillary Clinton's former spokesman, Philippe Reines, and The Times said a Gillibrand spokesman later sought to clarify that she was trying to point out that in today's climate, Bill Clinton's action wouldn't have been tolerated.

Handler's one of many leftists who've suddenly seen the light when it comes to the many accusations of sexual assault against former president Bill Clinton. The death of Mary Jo Kopechne might have doomed a lesser political figure than the late Sen. Al Franken, groped and kissed a Los Angeles radio personality.

Gillibrand, who fervently supported Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign for the presidency, added that the standard for behavior has changed since her husband's presidential term ended in 2001.

"As late as a year ago, Donald Trump's invocation of Broaddrick, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Willey, all women who had accused the former president of nonconsensual sexual impropriety, was viewed as an audacious distraction", Antle adds.

"Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction", she said, apparently nodding to the watershed conversation happening nationally in the USA on powerful men and sexual abuse.
