With the rise of #MeToo and increased attention on sexual misconduct by the powerful, Bill Clinton has found his indiscretions back in the spotlight. Not even being a Democrat could shield him from this shocking confession.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was asked on MSNBC whether Clinton should’ve resigned after his affair. Dodging the question, she said, “Oh, I don’t know. I can’t go back and re-litigate the 90s.” This is a stunning admission from her.
Warren is a self-described advocate for women’s rights, and yet she’s giving a pass to Bill Clinton. “I don’t have the time machine to go back and change the ’90s,” she said. “All I can do is change this world going forward.”
In contrast, even one of Warren’s colleagues, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), said Clinton should have resigned as president. “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response,” she answered when asked the question in a 2017 interview.
Warren must think that side-stepping the issue of Bill Clinton is going to gain her favor with power-brokers in the Democratic Party, but Clinton loyalists are slowly falling away — especially after two disastrous presidential runs for Hillary.
