Hillary Clinton won’t go away.
The former Secretary of State must crave the spotlight because she somehow makes the news on a daily basis.
And in a recent interview, she defended and accused sexual predator probably because he’s a Democrat.
Former super producer Harvey Weinstein was patient zero of the sexual scandal epidemic.
One could argue that Bill Cosby might have been the person who started the revolution but it wasn’t until Harvey Weinstein’s accusers stepped forward and opened up Pandora’s Box of sexual deviances throughout Hollywood.
Al Franken was one of those Hollywood elites before he became the junior senator of Minnesota.
Two allegations against Franken have come out in the last week – one was a Playboy Playmate during a USO tour in 2006.
Franken actually admitted and apologized, but he refuses to step down from office.
And now, of course, Hillary Clinton came to his defense.
The New York Post reported:
Hillary Clinton came to Sen. Al Franken’s defense on Friday during an interview for her new book, saying he should be praised for his “accountability” and willingness to apologize.
Speaking to WABC’s Radio’s Rita Cosby, the former Secretary of State instead pointed the finger at President Trump and embattled GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore — claiming they should be viewed as the real predators, and not Franken.
“I deeply regret what he did,” Clinton said. “There’s no excuse for his behavior. But he’s called for an investigation. He’s apologized to the woman involved.”
“Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither,” Clinton said.
“[That] is the kind of accountability I’m talking about. I don’t hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump.”
A former Playboy Playmate came forward this week and accused Franken, a Democrat from Minnesota, of groping her while the two were on a USO tour in 2006. The senator offered his “sincerest apologies” on Thursday, saying he was just trying to be funny.
Franken has inevitably drawn comparisons to Moore and Trump, both of whom have been accused of sexual misconduct.
While the president has been hit with sexual harassment allegations by numerous women in the past, Moore was only recently accused by his alleged victims in the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
The former Alabama state judge is running against Democrat Doug Jones in the special election to fill the Senate seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
While speaking to Clinton on Friday, Cosby pressed her on several topics involving the sexual assault during the interview — including allegations made against her husband.
“Every situation has to be judged on its own merit,” Clinton explained after being asked about recent comments made by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, saying former president Bill Clinton should have resigned amid the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
“I don’t know that we can rewrite and revise history,” Clinton added. “I don’t exactly know what [Gillibrand] was trying to say.”
The 70-year-old politician seemed to focus most of her energy, though, on blasting Trump and Moore.
“[Trump] has disgraced the office,” she said, prompting Rita to ask whether the president had done anything in the last few months that impressed her.
“No. The answer is absolutely no, Rita…I didn’t think he’d be as bad as he turned out to be.”
Setting her sights on Moore, Clinton said: “Clearly he doesn’t appear to be someone who will bring respect and honor to the state of Alabama.”
This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans, this is about sexual deviance and politics should be irrelevant.
But the difference between Moore and Franken is that one admitted to it and the other is denying it explicitly.
