Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who, along with Rep. Jackie Speier, just introduced the “Me Too Congress Act,” has said that former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down from the presidency after news of his inappropriate relationship with intern Monica Lewinsky came to light.
When asked by a New York Times interviewer directly about whether Clinton should have resigned after the scandal, Gillibrand paused and then gave her anwer. “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response,” she said.
Gillibrand hinted that mores have matured since the Clinton era. “Things have changed today,” she explained, “and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction.”
As revelations of sexual abuse in the entertainment industry as well as the political arena continue to emerge, Gillibrand feels it is the right time to take action whenever abuse occurs.
Regarding the accusations that have come against President Trump, Gillibrand said, “I think in light of this conversation, we should have a very different conversation about President Trump, and a very different conversation about allegations against him.”
The numerous accusations of sexually predatory behavior aimed at Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore, as well as the recent admission by Democratic Senator Al Franken that he abused a journalist while she was asleep on a USO tour, has made it obvious to political observers that sexual harassment is a non partisan issue.
Regarding her fellow Democrat Al Franken, Gillibrand gave her opinion on the matter freely. “It’s very disturbing,” she said.
“I was very disappointed,” she added. “But it’s important that survivors are coming out and speaking truth to power and telling their stories.”
Despite what she now says about Bill Clinton, Gillibrand has emphasized that former first lady Hillary Clinton has been a major role model.
Last year, in an essay for Medium, Gillibrand wrote, “In my adult life, politically, no one has inspired me to get off the sidelines and truly make a difference more than Hillary Clinton has.”
LOL! Sure, now that Bill Clinton is past his expiration date and no longer needed, and Job 1 is keeping Roy Moore out of the Senate and removing Trump from office by any means, she throws Bubba under the bus. Liberals are despicable, deeply dishonest, transparent frauds. – The Liberator
