From the WaPo:
Trump escalates attack on Bill Clinton
By Jose A. DelReal and Robert Costa May 23 at 7:41 PM
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is reviving some of the ugliest political chapters of the 1990s with escalating personal attacks on Bill Clinton’s character, part of a concerted effort to smother Hillary Clinton’s campaign message with the weight of decades of controversy.
Breathes there a Republican who does not thrill to a revival of the Bill Clinton debacles? Not counting David Brooks, who seems oddly unaware of this sort of thing.
Secondly, if Hillary defends Bill it moves her out of the spotlight and elevates the loose cannon on her deck. But if she doesn’t defend him, well, the Clintons have long attacked on the notion that an attack ignored is an attack affirmed.
And finally, just what is the WaPo pretending here?
Broaddrick accused Bill Clinton of assaulting her in 1978, when she worked on his Arkansas gubernatorial campaign. Willey said the former president tried to kiss and grope her in a private hallway in the White House when he was president. Clinton has denied the allegations, and inconsistencies in the women’s stories sowed doubts about their accounts.
“Doubts about their accounts”? Here in 2016 where all proper feminists insist we believe the victim and that assault survivors have notoriously shaky memories, is that really the play Hillary is gong to run?
