Hillary Clinton found herself in hot water among ‘The View’ hosts, who are typically very friendly towards the former Democratic nominee. The co-hosts, beginning with Abby Huntsman, erupted over Clinton’s defense of her husband’s sexual misconduct during an interview.
Hillary Clinton appeared on CBS “Sunday Morning” this weekend, during which she was asked if the #MeToo movement changed her view of Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
When the host asked Clinton if, in hindsight, she thought her husband should have resigned, Clinton responded, “Absolutely not.”
The host then asked her if she thought the relationship was an abuse of power. But instead of answering the question, Clinton simply pivoted and began trashing President Donald Trump.
Surprisingly, Joy Behard–a die-hard liberal–was the first to pile on Clinton. She said, “I have to say that what she just did is exactly what the Republicans do. They change the subject. So that’s why we never get anywhere in the discourse.”
That’s when Abby Huntsman chimed in. She said, “You know you have a bad argument when your immediate response is, ‘well, they were worse’ and you don’t acknowledge it. This highlights to me I think why some people struggled to vote for her was because you can’t have it both ways in her position which is exactly what you want.”
She continued, “You can’t put yourself on a pedestal and be a leader for the feminist movement and at the same time refuse to acknowledge the reality that you’ve lived with for all these years and to stand by your husband. But call it for what it is and call it out for being wrong and for being bad all those years. I just don’t think she can have it both ways and she continues to try and do this.”
Behar tried to make an excuse for Clinton, saying she is merely a “victim of [Bill’s] stupidity.”
Co-host Meghan McCain then joined in on the anger aimed at Clinton; she brought up how Clinton allegedly threatened her husband’s accusers. This includes Juanita Broaddrick, who has consistently claimed that Bill Clinton raped her.
McCain said, “But Juanita Broaddrick claims that Hillary tried to intimidate her into silence. Kathleen Wiley claims the Clintons tried to intimidate her into not telling the truth. She [Hillary] called Monica Lewinsky a narcissistic looney tune. Gennifer Flowers some failed cabaret singer. There’s a whole list of things, that she was also involved in the cover-up of the bimbo eruptions, if you read George Stephanopoulos’ book. I just think with Hillary in particular, first of all, she’s the gift that keeps on giving for Republicans. Democrats have got to move on from the Clintons.”
For once, the hosts of The View are being honest about the Clintons!
