I have missed the comic stylings of former vice-president and beloved national clown Joe Biden. I am glad to see he is still in business:
“For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time,” Biden said. “But nobody fails to understand that this is like jumping into a cauldron.”
Go here to read the rest. The following women would like a word or two with you:
Juanita Broaddrick has made the most serious allegations against Clinton, accusing him of raping her in 1978 while Clinton was Arkansas’ attorney general.
Broaddrick, then a 35-year-old nursing-home administrator, met Clinton when he visited her nursing home on a campaign stop. After Clinton asked to meet with her on her next trip to Little Rock, the two set up a meeting in a hotel coffee shop.
Broaddrick, who first made the accusation publicly in 1999, told BuzzFeed News last year that when Clinton arrived at the hotel he asked to meet in Broaddrick’s room instead and, after he arrived, violently raped her. Broaddrick said he bloodied her lip by biting it.
“There was no remorse,” Broaddrick told BuzzFeed News. “He acted like it was an everyday occurrence. He was not the least bit apologetic. It was just unreal.”
The Washington Post reported that two people close to Broaddrick said she described the rape to them at the time.
Kathleen Willey said Clinton kissed her, fondled her breasts, and forced her to touch his crotch during a meeting in the Oval Office in 1993, while Willey was a volunteer in the White House correspondence office.
Willey made her allegations public in 1998, and Clinton “emphatically” denied that the interaction was sexual, arguing that he hugged Willey and may have kissed her on the forehead.
A former Arkansas state employee named Paula Jones said that in 1991, at a government quality-management conference that Clinton attended, she was approached by the state police and told that Clinton, then the governor, wanted to meet with her. Jones said that a police officer escorted her to Clinton’s hotel room in Little Rock and that Clinton then propositioned her for sex and exposed his genitals to her.
“He sat down, pulled down his pants, his whole everything and he was exposed, and I said, ‘I’m not that kind of girl, and I need to be getting back to my desk,'” Jones recalled to Hannity.
Leslie Millwee, a former television reporter, came forward publicly for the first time in October 2016 to accuse Clinton of sexually assaulting her in 1980.
Millwee says Clinton, then the governor of Arkansas, groped her on several occasions at the now-defunct TV station she worked at in Arkansas.
“He followed me into an editing room,” Millwee told the far-right website Breitbart News in an October 2016 interview. “It was very small. There was a chair. I was sitting in a chair. He came up behind me and started rubbing my shoulders and running his hands down toward my breasts. And I was just stunned. I froze. I asked him to stop. He laughed.”
Millwee says the incidents escalated.
She said of a second incident: “He came in behind me. Started hunching me to the point that he had an orgasm. He’s trying to touch my breasts. And I’m just sitting there very stiffly, just waiting for him to leave me alone. And I’m asking him the whole time, ‘Please do not do this. Do not touch me. Do not hunch me. I do not want this.'”
