It must have been difficult for former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea to watch Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump lay into Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton during the pair’s first debate that occurred on September 26. But that’s the nature of the political beast: If you can’t stand the heat, don’t jump into the fire.
That helps explain why Chelsea would want to lash out at Trump for his mention of her father’s sexual trysts (which are legion), which he did again recently and has done for months on the campaign trail.
In a post-debate interview with ABC News, Trump said he didn’t want to mention Bill’s sexual “transgressions” during the debate because Chelsea was in the audience. “I didn’t want to say what I was going to say with Chelsea in the room,” Trump said.
That didn’t sit well with Chelsea, who told Cosmopolitan magazine after the debate:
It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country safe and Americans safe here at home and around the world.
Chelsea went on to say that she can’t remember a time when her parents weren’t being attacked, so Trump’s statements appeared to be part of that “tradition.”
Well, that didn’t sit well with one of Bill’s most vocal accusers: Juanita Broaddrick, who has publicly claimed for years that he raped her in a hotel room 38 years ago – charges that have not been legally addressed by the Clinton’s, in the form of a defamation lawsuit against Broaddrick, for instance.
As reported by WorldNetDaily, Broaddrick dropped some Twitter bombs on Chelsea, saying, in part:
— The reason why her parents are always under attack is because “they’re not good people;” and
— As to her father, he “was, and probably still is, a sexual predator.”
She also tweeted this: “I say again ‘I was 35 when Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73. It never goes away.’”
Broaddrick has regularly accused Hillary Clinton of helping to cover up her husband’s extramarital sexual affairs and alleged crimes, ostensibly to protect his and her political viability as they each continually sought higher office.
In addition, as WND has also reported, Broaddrick’s claims were substantiated by a nurse who treated her after the incident.
“She was crying. And the thing I think I remember most is that her mouth was all swollen up. It was cut. … Her pantyhose were all ripped,” the nurse, Normal Rogers, said.
Again, for what it’s worth, none of Broaddrick’s claims or, those made by other women who were allegedly attacked or assaulted by Bill Clinton, including Kathleen Wiley and Paula Jones, have ever been countered in a court of law by the Clinton’s, which is highly unusual if such claims are indeed bogus. Charges that are that explosive and which are being leveled in the public domain would be extremely libelous if they were in fact untrue, leaving the accuser wide open for a lawsuit and charges of making false claims.
None of these women have been brought to court on such charges, it is important to note. And Jones won $850,000 from Clinton in 1998 to settle her lawsuit, which charged Clinton with sexual harassment.
