Hillary Clinton, during a CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour, defended her husband former President Bill Clinton against the allegations of sexual misconduct that had dogged him for years.

She is currently on a joint speaking tour with her husband.  People are actually paying up to $700 each to see them in person.  Yes, really.

Amanpour gingerly asked the former First Lady about her own husband’s infidelity and sexual predation.  “You say that you are going to talk about the difficulties that your husband went through, that you went through. Obviously you’re going to be prepared to have questions about that moment in 1998, the impeachment, the allegations of sexual [misconduct] against your own husband.”

“Are you prepared to answer those questions?” she continued to ask. “Is he prepared to answer them? And how do you see that similar or different from what President Trump is being accused of and Kavanaugh and others today?”

Though the answer was cushioned as delicately as possible, you have to give Amanpour credit for asking.  Clinton’s answer is a case study in denial.

“There’s a very significant difference. And that is the intense, long-lasting partisan investigation that was conducted in the ’90s.”  In other words, the many credible accusations against her husbad were different because they were “partisan.”

Um…  Either Hillary is being straight up dishonest or just delusional.  Hard to know.  But I guess it would be hard for her to cast herself as a proponent of “female power” after she literally slut shamed some of Bill’s accusers.

It’s astonishing to me that the Clintons have such a lack of awareness of their own legacy that they’d be willing to brazenly tour in this #MeToo era without fear of any sort of push back from Democrats.  Of course, maybe they know the truth about all this #MeToo hysteria.

Perhaps this tour will be a test to see how strong this #MeToo actually is.  If it turns out that it is only strong enough to attack conservatives (with unfounded accusations, a la Kavanaugh) it will be a hollow movement, in deed.  However, if it can somehow finally call the pater familias of the Democratic party on all of his misdeeds, then we’ll see that it’s not just a partisan effort at power grabbing.

I am not holding out hope for the latter.
