Hillary Clinton continues being the gift that keeps on giving…to Republicans.  Every time she opens her mouth, she either reminds voters of how cosmically lucky America was that she didn’t become President or she exposes some gaping hypocrisy in her own party.  Her latest interview gave us both in a two-fer.


This time, she claimed that her husband’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky wasn’t an abuse of power, and that, hey, Lewinsky was an “adult.”  For the record, Lewinsky was a 22-year-old White House intern when their liaison began, and Bill Clinton was 49 and President of the United States.  Lewinsky has written recently that while she thought it was consensual at the time, with more maturity and hindsight, she now sees the vast disparity in power and that “the road that led there was littered with inappropriate abuse of authority, station, and privilege.” Indeed, any HR person (as opposed to a certain HRC person) could tell you that affairs between young female employees or interns and older bosses are textbook sexual harassment simply because the vast disparity of power and position makes an unsullied determination of consent impossible.  

It also creates a hostile workplace for other women, who wonder if they are being denied benefits granted to the co-worker who is canoodling with the boss.  If your politics make it impossible for you to see that objectively with the Clintons, then consider how David Letterman’s other female employees felt when they learned he’d been having affairs with multiple female employees, including an assistant who got frequent air time on his show.  He later admitted that CBS had “good reason” to fire him.  But then, CBS was run by Les Moonves, so that’s a whole other kettle of fishiness.    

For younger readers who aren’t familiar with the Clintons' “problematic” – to say the least – history with sexual abuse allegations, here’s a history of it from  I deliberately chose a non-conservative website, so you won’t think it’s slanted against them.  Seriously, this is about the best spin you can possibly put on it.

For Hillary to defend Bill and pin the blame on Monica just as Democrats are trying to gin up anger over Brett Kavanaugh to turn out the feminist vote gives party leaders one more reason to wish she’d take a long hike in the Chappaqua woods and not come out until mid-November.   

But that’s not all she said (see, I told you she was the gift that keeps on giving!) She also had to drag up the 2016 Presidential debates and gripe that Trump’s demeaning attitude toward her was “sexist.”  

Let me assure you: I stood next to Donald Trump on a debate stage crowded with Republicans, all of whom were male except for Carly Fiorina.  They all went after him just like Hillary did, and he punched back just as hard.  Granted, he never attacked me with the same rhetorical chainsaw, but that was because I observed Reagan’s 11th Commandment and kept my comments on the issues and my criticism on Hillary, not my fellow Republicans.  The media claim he goes after everyone with a club, but I’m living proof that he only attacks those who attack him first, and his other opponents said some pretty nasty things about him. 

As for Hillary’s belated attempt to blame her loss (actually caused by her incompetent election strategy, failed leftist policies, transparent dishonesty and insulting of the “deplorable” voters) on sexism at the debates, that was already scientifically proven false. An NYU professor wanted to see if gender played a role in how the candidates were perceived.  So she recreated key portions of the second debate with actors portraying the candidates, only with the genders flipped: Hillary’s arguments were made by a man and Trump’s by a woman, each emulating the candidates' speaking styles and gestures.  

She was surprised to discover that viewers thought the female version of Trump won.  She forcefully presented a clear and passionate message that they related to. The male version of Hillary was well-prepared with research but robotic and uninspiring.

Sexism and even sex were both irrelevant to the debate's outcome: whether Hillary's words and personality came from a female or male, viewers just didn’t like them.  I know rejection is a tough pill to swallow – I have two painfully unsuccessful runs under my belt, too – but Hillary needs to take her own supporters’ advice (“Move on”), get over blaming the stupid, sexist voters for not recognizing her wonderfulness and accept that the problem was her.

    What I don't understand is. Just why Hillary Clinton was even allowed to run for the office of President in the first palace. She or any woman for that matter are not eligible to run for the office of president. That is until such time an Amendment has been added to the constitution. that says a woman can run for the office of President. Article 2. Sections 1 to 4 The only place that defines the gender of a President. 19 times as a male.

    Good read. When is she going to be put in jail and his government salary stopping. They have killed and abused all the way up to the top. Isn’t it time someone put them behind bars?

    Great article... Hillary Clinton lost, period. She is not a champion for women’s rights. Quite the opposite! Kirstin Gillibrand, Camalla Harris, and Spartacus are running around hysterical all while the Democratic Party is imploding. The Left’s rhetoric has created a dangerous atmosphere for all and I pray for better days ahead. Professors and teachers should teach, not inject their bias on students, the same for Hollywood- stick with acting. Stand for the anthem, respect the flag and respect the President! And, respect one another always.

    I love to read your articles and agree wholeheartedly. My primary vote was supposed to go to you but, unfortunately, you withdrew before our primary.

    Clinton was a “rover”, everyone knows that just like she knows it and it was well documented and proven years ago. She can paint it any color she wants, she is not fooling anyone. Monica was not the first time he was caught with his pants down. The embarrassment continues for this Country having lived through that Presidency. Not sure why she continues to defend him or why she continues to compete in the political world at this point. After all the lies We were told by the Democratic Party during her run, We believe nothing they say anymore.

    I think she would look absolutely wonderful in an orange jumpsuit accessorized with a chain belt hooked to iron ankle bracelets and joined to Bill outfitted the same way. GITMO would be the perfect place for them. They could share a "room" with a view of the ocean!
