Former President Bill Clinton has been a subject of countless scandals throughout the past two decades.
From his unsavory business dealings to his presidential impeachment in the House, Clinton has proven he is unworthy to lead this country in any capacity.
But what he just said about his past sexual scandal will truly disgust you.
Bill Clinton claimed that the norms for sexual assault have changed in regards to his past affair with Monica Lewinsky.
An original Clinton accuser, Juanita Broaddrick, shared her story in an interview with Fox News, in the hopes her story would receive the same respect and consideration as other allegations made by women against powerful men.
“I feel like people are starting to believe and realize that I was truly sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton. All victims matter. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican. Who cares if you’re straight or you’re gay, or if you believe in God or not. We all have a right to be believed.”
Another alleged Clinton victim, Kathleen Willey, responded at the thought that their claims may finally be believed.
With the recent #MeToo movement so widely reported, women are coming out of the woodwork with their stories of sexual assault by the rich and powerful.
The media has had a field day, heavily focusing on the message that all of the alleged victims must be believed, even though their claims were brushed under the rug by the same news outlets decades ago.
In a telephone interview with the New York Times from her home in Richmond, Virginia, Willey shared her disgust at being ignored for so long since Bill Clinton was the accused.
“It’s about time. We’ve waited for years for vindication.”
“They’re hypocrites,” she said. “They worship at the altar of all things Clinton. They’re all over Roy Moore, but they had nothing to say about Bill Clinton when he was accused of doing what he was accused of doing.”
In an interview with PBS, Bill Clinton alleged that the norms of sexual consent have changed, allowing individuals to push boundaries in this sense.
PBS’s Judy Woodruff reminded the former President that Senator Al Franken had been charged and left office after his groping affair overtook his political career.
“I assume you think that what happened with you was more serious than what happened with Senator — former Senator Al Franken,” she said. “So, norms have changed. Do you think that’s a good thing?”
When questioned whether or not he felt his past affair was affecting his current political career in a similar manner, Bill Clinton’s answer was bleak:
“I think it’s a good thing that we should all have higher standards,” Clinton said. “I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work.”
Worse yet, Clinton later went on to defend both his and Franken’s actions in the interview.
Former President Bill Clinton is certainly no stranger to deflecting scandal, as the Foundation both he and his wife, Hillary Clinton, run is consistently under both federal investigation and scrutiny — but this time, he may not be able to walk away free.
