It’s another case of truth being stranger than fiction and the pot calling the kettle black. That’s what happened when Bill Clinton accused Bernie Sanders campaign of making sexist attacks against supporters of his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
We can’t make this up. One of the biggest political philanderers accused of multiple cases of sexual harassment – and sexual assault – is accusing his wife’s opponent of attacking women who support Hillary. That’s just too rich.
Here’s what Bill Clinton said in a speech to supporters in Milford, New Hampshire, as reported by The New York Times:
“When you’re making a revolution you can’t be too careful with the facts. A female progressive blogger was forced to write under a pseudonym because the vitriol is so angry.
“She and other people who have gone online to defend Hillary, to explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist, to repeat.”
The former president talked about the race for almost 50 minutes, beginning with kind words for his wife, and steadily grew more and more angry at Sanders and his supporters.
Clinton said Sanders’ supporters use misogynistic language to attack his wife and anyone else who supports her.
This seems to be a desperate attempt to smear Bernie Sanders, and proof that Hillary’s campaign isn’t going as well as the Clinton camp expected. Hillary isn’t the charismatic campaigner that Bill was (and maybe still is)… and she’s relying on Bill’s charm to overcome her lack of sincerity and personality.
Do you think this is a sign that the Clinton campaign is in trouble?
