How does this lady sleep at night? It seems as if accepting personal responsibility is still not in the Hillary Clinton repertoire. Also, she has some serious chutzpah here. The former first lady tweeted last week that she’s proud of the woman who alleged that her top aide sexually harassed her during the 2008 campaign. The top adviser, Burns Strider, whose role centered on faith-based operations, was not fired, but shielded by Hillary. Her campaign manager at the time, Patti Solis Doyle, took the complaint to Clinton, who balked at the recommendation that Strider be terminated. She kept him on staff, according to The New York Times. The paper added he had to undergo counseling and was docked several weeks’ salary. Strider’s accuser was reassigned.
A story appeared today about something that happened in 2008. I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 27, 2018
“A story appeared today about something that happened in 2008. I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed,” tweeted the former secretary of state on January 26, the day the story broke that she shielded another sexual harasser, the first time was with her husband, Slick Willy.
I called her today to tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 27, 2018
“I called her today to tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard,” she added.
Okay—again, we’re back at this game. Lady, this was not your position when Slick Willy was accused of sexual harassment, including rape. You went on a concerted campaign to destroy these people, which was aided by feminist allies. The ‘x candidate is a liberal Democrat, so it’s fine’ defense was born. In other words, dabbling in rape culture is totally fine, as long as you're anti-gun, pro-abortion, and say things that make feminist heads nod.
It just adds to the absurdity of this political couple. In what world do they think they’ll escape criticism in this incident, where Hillary could and should have fired her top adviser? She obviously didn’t believe or didn’t think it was important enough to warrant dismissal because it would be bad press. And it would give the Obama campaign more fuel to fan the flames of their change vs. establishment narrative that ultimately worked in the end. Also, it was due to the fact that Barack Obama has political skill, whereas Hillary Clinton has none.
Isn’t this odd that she is considered an icon in the MeToo moment? The woman who torched the women who accused her husband of credible rape allegations, who didn’t believe them, and who then, like with Bill, shielded a top aide from being fired for sexual harassment. Now, she says all women deserve to be believed in such circumstances and oh yeah—calls the woman who was harassed by said top aide and tells her she’s proud of her whilst remaining the sole person who could have done something about it ten years ago? That’s sociopathic. That’s not having your cake and eating it too. That’s having several cakes and devouring them all after an orgy of political prostitution, a shameless shift to satisfy the changing tide because it's obvious Hillary Clinton couldn't care less about this incident or this Me Too movement, but if it's a means to dent Trump, so be it.
It’s the same old Clintons. They think they can play by different rules and because the media loves them for some reason, along with their other allies in the Democratic Party it’s tolerated because they’re liberals. Last night's appalling love-fest for the women at the Grammy's demonstrated that:

So let me get this straight .... The music world showed up with #TIMESUP white roses. And honored a book whose author smeared @nikkihaley with a fake claim of an affair. And cheered for a brief live-reading by @HillaryClinton, a legendary enabler of a serial sexual abuser. Okay.— David Martosko (@dmartosko) January 29, 2018
Just gotta protect the *right* harassers & boost the *right* men who accuse successful women of sleeping w their bosses. Heroism. There’s a feminist decoder ring around here somewhere. https://t.co/dRqbiJFU1V— Mary Katharine Ham (@mkhammer) January 29, 2018
Also, there could be the notion that she’s a two-time presidential loser, she will never be president, and she won’t run for office again, so she could give zero f**ks. Hence, her video where she voices her support for “activist bitches supporting bitches,” which was sent on the same day she called the woman who was sexually harassed on her 2008 campaign.
Lady Macbeth, you are a cursed spot indeed—and you’re not going away for a long time, right? That’s fine. The Republican Party will find many uses for you in energizing the base and filling the campaign war chests.
