Hillary Told To 'Stop Talking' About Sexual Abuse Until Bill Clinton Admits His Behavior

Hillary Clinton should not criticize anyone else for sexual harassment until her husband acknowledges his misconduct, according to a liberal political commentator.

“She needs to stop talking about this topic unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize for being a sexual harasser, for settling with women, for what happened with Monica,” Mika Brzezinski, who co-hosts MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” said on a recent show. She was referring to Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern with whom the former president had an affair.

The Daily Mail noted that Hillary Clinton has been lashing out at President Trump, alleging that his sexual abuse has “disgraced the office.” Trump has admitted that he kissed and groped women without their consent. He could be heard on a 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape bragging about how his celebrity status as a reality-show star allowed him to “do anything” to women, even “grab ‘em by the p***y.” At least 16 women have accused the president of sexual harassment or assault over the years. He denies the charges.

In an interview with WABC Radio, Hillary Clinton remarked: “We have a man who’s accused of sexual assault sitting in the Oval Office, don’t we? The very credible accusations against him have not been taken seriously. We can’t excuse the president from this debate.”

Brzezinski reacted by telling her viewers: “Whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, sexually harassing someone who is 22 years old when you’re in power is just wrong, and you should go – in real time. He needs to apologize as quickly as Al Franken did, as much as Mark Halperin did.” Franken, a Democratic senator from Minnesota, and Halperin, a political commentator, are also facing allegations of sexual misconduct.

Apparently addressing Bill Clinton, Brzezinski said: “If you’re not going to apologize and it’s clear you’ve done something wrong, please, please, you the politician and your wife the politician need to not talk about these issues. Just don’t, OK? – unless you want to come to the table with some honesty. … Bill Clinton’s behavior was accepted. It was pushed under the rug, and even women defended him. ... And his wife ran for president even though these women who accused him were attacked in the media, were maligned or settled.”

Brzezinski is not alone in proclaiming that Bill Clinton should have stepped down. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., made the same argument last week during an interview with The New York Times. The lawmaker’s statement came as a surprise to many observers, since both of the Clintons have contributed to her campaigns. Gillibrand holds Hillary Clinton’s former Senate seat.

The House of Representatives impeached Bill Clinton for lying under oath about his affair with Lewinsky. He remained in office because the Senate did not convict him. “Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction,” Gillibrand said, according to CNN. “And I think in light of this conversation, we should have a very different conversation about President Trump, and a very different conversation about allegations against him.”
