The liberal media is excellent at double-standards and no where was that more apparent than watching a CNN report where the female anchor is visibly shocked to learn that at least 14 women have alleged abuse and/or affairs with the former President. According to The Daily Caller:
CNN Anchor Alisyn Camerota was shocked to learn that there are at least 14 women who could make claims that former President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them.
Thursday, on CNN’s “New Day,” CNN political commentator Errol Louis told Camerota, “There are about 14 women who could be said to have made claims at one time or another.”
Aghast, Camerota said, “Is that right? Fourteen?”
Lewis replied, “Well, if you go to the sort of right-wing websites and the talk radio crowd. There are about 14 names out there.”
Leading into Camerota’s amazement, a clip of Donald Trump was played where he took shots at Bill and Hillary Clinton insisting that “Nobody respects women more than Donald Trump… And, you know, when she said that, I had no choice because I didn’t start it. I had no choice, and I did have to mention her husband’s situation.” During that same rally in Hilton Head, South Carolina, Trump said that Bill Clinton was “is one of the great abusers [of women] of the world.” (RELATED: Donald Trump: Bill Clinton Is ‘One Of The Great Abusers Of The World’ [VIDEO])
Some of Clinton’s accusers include Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Eileen Wellstone, Carolyn Moffet, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Becky Brown, Helen Dowdy, and Cristy Zercher.
In the Starr Report, Monica Lewinsky testified that Bill Clinton told her that “he had hundreds of affairs” before he turned 40.
Lewis explained that Donald Trump brings up Bill Clinton’s “situation” in order to “take Bill Clinton out of the equation. Wants to either embarrass him or otherwise frighten him off the campaign trail.”
What’s interesting is that when a Republican is running, the Democrats feel that his or her past is fair game because it speaks to that person’s character and priorities. However, with former President Clinton, even during the run up to his election, the leftist press did not give coverage to the many women claiming abuse or affairs with the Presidential contender.
What’s almost as bad, is Hillary’s role in silencing or discrediting these victims of rape and abuse. It’s not behavior inline with feminism, and is definitely fair game for Mr. Trump or others to take on the Clintons, because as they’ve shown in the past, when you take on one, you take on both, and they fight back viciously.
