Wait for it…GUILTY! (and it’s not Bill)
So what happens when a lefty CNN host is confronted with an inconvenient truth that Hillary Clinton is as pro-woman as Trump is pro-illegal immigration?
This… (emphasis in bold is mine)
CNN host Carol Costello abruptly ended a segment Tuesday after a guest brought up Hillary Clinton’s 1975 legal defense of an accused child rapist.
Appearing on “CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello” on Tuesday, Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, who supports Donald Trump said, “When you get one-on-one, especially if it’s Hillary, Donald Trump will go places nobody is willing to go — where the media at this point isn’t willing to go: Bringing up Clinton’s women who say they were intimidated by Hillary. Having them come forward and speak. A litany of issues that you can’t even imagine.”
“Do you know how many young women in this country don’t even know that Bill Clinton was impeached?
A LOT…There are a lot people who are of voting age who don’t remember the Clinton years like many of us do. To them it’s ancient history, or something they were too young to understand. Whoever the GOP nominee is would have an outstanding opportunity to bring up that old news as if it was brand new, because Hillary Clinton isn’t the devil they know.
No, maybe they’ve heard of Monica Lewinsky. They don’t know the women that have accused Bill Clinton of sexual improprieties and that say they have been threatened and intimidated by Hillary Clinton,” Malzberg said.
“A girl who was raped by a pedophile that Hillary Clinton bragged about getting off,” Malzberg began to say before Costello interrupted.
Costello said, “Oh, come on.”
Why is bringing that up beyond the pale? Sure, the case in question is over 40 years old and the accused rapist was entitled to a defense, but did it have to be her? She didn’t even believe he was innocent.
On the tapes, Clinton, who speaks in a Southern drawl, appears to acknowledge that she was aware of her client’s guilt, brags about successfully getting the only piece of physical evidence thrown out of court, and laughs about it all whimsically.
“He took a lie detector test. I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” Clinton says on the recording, failing to hold back some chuckles.
It was probably an empowering experience for her actually. If a lie detecting machine could be fooled then certainly people could be fooled by her, and they have been. This case alone would probably be meaningless today, no matter how tragic and vile it was. The fact of the matter, however, is that this is just the earliest recorded instance of what would be come countless black marks on her character and soul.
And CNN wants people to shut up about it.
