Bill Clinton Takes A Stroll Down Misconduct-Memory Lane After Defending Fellow Dem’s Lascivious Behavior

Bill Clinton remembers a kinder and gentler time in America when raping, assaulting and harassing women was still fine and the news media would just laugh it off.

Then he reverts to the present and laments the forced resignation of Al Franken who had the misfortune of being botn too late to take advantage of the free pass. I have the misfortune of having been born and raised in the middle of the Appalachia Mountains where we were taught that doing any of those things were not only disrespectful but could get your arse kicked in a heartbeat to boot.

Alex Burns of the NYT Tweeted the following:

“Wow, I missed Bill Clinton weighing in on Franken, citing SNL colleagues defending him and questioning some allegations”

President Bill Clinton’s new interview with PBS NewsHour, which aired last week, featured some shocking, and strikingly tone-deaf, comments from the former president about sexual harassment and assault, including his opinion that “what you can do to someone against their will” has changed.

Clinton’s comments seem to suggest that he believes there was a time in which doing anything against someone’s will was acceptable or normal.

Clinton also defended ousted Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who resigned from the U.S. Senate amid sexual harassment allegations. Clinton said, as part of his comments on Franken, that “maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person.”

The #MeToo era has, among many other things, highlighted the fact that there’s nothing ‘normal’ or “old-fashioned” about sexual harassment and assault, whether incidents occurred decades ago or are happening today.

I hate to have to be the one to tell you, Bill, but there was never a time when your actions were acceptable.
