Even a liberal journalist from “The Atlantic” believes Bill’s past sexual immorality is fair game.
The Atlanic’s Molly Ball appeared on Sunday’s “Face The Nation” on CBS in order to comment on Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s recent assault on the Clinton crime family.
In response, Ball said that if Hillary Clinton is going to use Bill’s “successful” presidency to advance talking points in her campaign then Bill’s sexual assault/rape cases are “fair game”.
“[Trump] does have point when he talks about how she’s pandering to women. We do her leaning into sort of feminism as identity politics. She didn’t in 2008 in way that was seen as damaging and dangerous in 2008 she had to be Margaret Thatcher, had to be tough, had to be genderless. This time around very different campaign. She’s talking very openly about being the first woman president as an asset of her campaign, something she wants to accomplish.I do think that, number one, he has a point in pointing that out. Some people may be offended by it, some may not. Number two … if Hillary is going to say that the things that Bill Clinton did that are regarded positively accrue to her credit but the things that are negative she had nothing to do with, well that’s ridiculous, and it is fair game.” Source
Ball correctly pointed out that Hillary can’t only choose positive aspects of Bill’s life to use on the campaign trail and that, essentially, she’ll have to acknowledge the good and the bad.
She made an astute point.
There’s no question that Hillary has been dodging questions about her husband’s sexual promiscuity, even resorting to lashing out and calling a rape victim who questioned her husband’s prior conduct “very rude” at a recent campaign rally.
According to Roger Stone, the leading Democratic presidential candidate aided and abetted her husband’s behavior. When Clinton silences those who ask about it, she’s only solidifying Stone’s assertion.
The Atlantic Monthly journalists deserve credit for putting aside their political viewpoints and holding the Clinton crime family accountable for their corruption.
