Hey kids! Let’s relitigate the Nineties!
Now that Bill Clinton has rebranded himself, magically transforming from a predator of women to an advocate for them, it’s time for his most (in)famous old flame to step back into the public eye.
Considering that Lewinsky was one of the first casualties of the Internet Age, she must be pretty nervous about throwing herself back into the fray. I’m with Derek Hunter on this one:
We all make mistakes when we’re young and trying to find our way in the world. Most of them don’t involve having extramarital sexual relations with that man, the President of the United States, but…
I think she’s spent enough time in that barrel. Bill Clinton lied about her and treated her like garbage. He used her when she was convenient and then discarded her when she wasn’t. Now he’s the most popular Democrat in the country, and her very name is a punchline. Talk about a #WarOnWomen.
She’s been punished enough by the people she trusted.
I feel sorry for Monica Lewinsky, but it wasn’t the Clintons who treated her like crap. Bill had a consensual affair with her, then he denied it. What was he supposed to do when the shit hit the fan, pledge his undying love to her on national television?
Hillary apparently said a few mean things about Monica, but only in private. Cheated-on spouses usually have a negative opinion of their spouse’s lover. Even if Hillary had done as some people think she should have and left Bill, she still wasn’t gonna be BFFs with Monica.
The people who made Monica’s life a living hell were Ken Starr and the GOP, Linda Tripp, and the media. They dragged her into the spotlight. Linda Tripp betrayed Monica’s confidences. Ken Starr sicced the FBI on her. Then he leaked it all to the media.
Monica now says she is making it her mission to end cyberbullying, and calls herself the first victim. But what happened to her wasn’t cyberbullying, it was public slut-shaming. Nobody forced the media to make her name and face infamous.
So now the Clinton Truthers have their favorite toy back to play with again. These are the people who have been trying to “expose the truth” about Bill and Hillary for 20 years now. But they don’t have anything new, so they just keep rehashing the same crap that didn’t fly the first couple thousand times they told us about it.
We knew that Bill Clinton was a horndog when we elected him, but there is a big difference between a horndog and a sexual predator. Trying to use Bill’s wayward ways against Hillary is just ridiculous.
If the GOP tries to make 2016 all about Bill’s penis I may have to vote for Hillary just to spite them.
