Bill Clinton’s book tour once more took a detour after attempting to defend Al Franken
Bill Clinton Tries To Defend Franken But Just Comes Off Even Creepier- Understandable Backlash For His Disgusting Comments
The former president Bill Clinton is facing some fierce backlash for his comments about the changing ‘norms’. In an interview with PBS about former Senator Al Franken, Clinton notes “what you can do to somebody against their will” has changed. That’s a heck of a creepy argument from a sexual allegation heavyweight.
According to Fox News, Clinton, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct dating back decades, said he thought it was a “good thing that we should all have higher standards.”
Franken, the Democratic senator from Minnesota, resigned from office in 2017 following multiple claims of sexual misconduct and a backlash from some Democrats.
“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,” Clinton said, according to a clip posted by RealClearPolitics. “You don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good.”
The comments were met with wide criticism.
Bill shrugs off his own comments with a “Maybe I’m just old-fashioned”- perhaps reminiscent of the many allegations against him. Sure, Bill would be held more accountable for his sexual misconduct in this day and time but does he really think it was ever socially acceptable for a politician to humiliate and grope a woman against her will?
Maybe Bill thinks the word of Franken’s fellow comedians should be taken over the photo evidence of his disgusting act? What about the victim’s voice? I mean, really Bill.
As Written By USA Today:
Former president Bill Clinton’s book tour once more took a detour onto the subject of sexual harassment.
Clinton, who made headlines last week for saying he did not owe Monica Lewinsky a personal apology, defended former Minnesota senator Al Franken and said “norms have changed” in terms of “what you can do to somebody against their will,” during an interview Judy Woodruff on PBS “News Hour.”
In an interview that aired Thursday, Woodruff pointed out that the allegations of misconduct against Franken were not as serious as those that were leveled at Clinton both during and before his time in office. Yet, Clinton survived his scandals, while Franken was driven from the Senate.
