Millions of Trump-hating Americans tuned into CBS News’ “60 Minutes” program Sunday night to hear an ex-porn star dish dirt about her alleged sexual encounter with President Donald J. Trump in 2006, long before he ever thought about putting his name in the hat for the Oval Office.
I don’t particularly feel its necessary to review the allegations in this space. No doubt you’ve already heard them or read about them somewhere else (try here, if you’re interested).
My role is to simply remind everyone who is now demanding that Trump be run out of Washington, D.C., at the soonest possible moment that the bulk of you people are stone hypocrites and have no business commenting on this or any other sexual claims made against this president.
Why? Because your Democratic Party set the standard for how Americans should respond to salacious sexual allegations made against a sitting president not so long ago in a time not so distant.
Back when the White House belonged to Democrats and the president was Bill Clinton, any American who dared to criticize him was told in no uncertain terms that whether he was or was not involved in various and sundry sexual exploits — even in the White House itself — why, that was none of our business and between him and first lady Hillary Clinton.
‘You just shut yer mouth, Clinton hater!’ we were told by the sycophants in the Democratic Party. ‘Whatever happened took place behind closed doors and between two consenting adults, so it’s none of yer business!’
Granted, Juanita Broaddrick would argue the “consenting adults” claim, since she says Clinton actually raped her, but I digress.
In the 1990s, when sexual harassment allegations were made against Clinton by Paula Jones, longtime ally James Carville denigrated her and maligned her character: “Drag a hundred dollars through a trailer park and there’s no telling what you’ll find.”
As Newstarget reported in November:
During the 1992 presidential campaign, most media outlets ignored allegations by Gennifer Flowers that she had a 12-year relationship with candidate Clinton. After a protracted legal struggle, Clinton entered into an out-of-court settlement with Paula Jones in her sexual harassment lawsuit, and his law license was suspended for five years. Kathleen Willey accused Clinton of groping her in the Oval Office. Democrats and their media allies mostly ridiculed Jones and ignored [Kathleen] Willey. Dolly Kyle recently published a book about her long affair with Clinton. Over the years, the names of other women involved with “Slick Willie” have also surfaced.
“Of course, many liberals and Democrats stood by Mr. Clinton despite the allegations because they agreed with his policy stances and did not want to reward those on the other side,” The New York Times noted.

During his impeachment — which was initiated after he lied to congressional investigators under oath about his sexual escapades with Monica Lewinsky — Democrats continued to applaud Clinton and deride his critics as practicing the “politics of personal destruction.”
A recent tweet by Clinton sycophant Philippe Reines critical of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand over her admonishment of the former president for his past sexual sins sums up this blatant hypocrisy. “Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual bl*wjob. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand?”
Consensual. So even though it took place in the people’s house — remember, Trump’s alleged dalliances were a decade before he won the presidency — Reines’ implication is that it’s nobody’s business.
Democrats have set the “we’re not supposed to care about a president’s sexual trysts” standard. So I believe I’ll take their advice, especially when the current president’s past is not prologued.
They should take their own advice, too, and shut up about all of this.
