In light of the recent wave of sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men in Hollywood, Washington, New York, and points elsewhere, many are viewing claims against former President Bill Clinton in a new light.
Too little, too late as far as S.E. Cupp is concerned.
“It is time now for liberals to pay a long overdue bill,” Cupp said Wednesday on Unfiltered She added, “A few liberals are coming out. They are sort of confronting this. But with lots of caveats, and excuses, and context and ‘here’s why.’…is this enough, what we’re hearing right now?”
The subject is personal for Cupp, who shared several #MeToo stories during a one-hour special devoted to the subject last month. She drew on her memories of how several of the Clinton allegations were dealt with in the 90s.
I was a teen when Bill Clinton was impeached. And this was a seminal moment for me to watch a country collectively excuse him, go back right back to revering him, and I thought it really impacted me. It told me a lot about the culture of my country. And it took years for me to unpack that and sort of make up my own mind about how men should treat women, and whether women should stay with men like that, and whether women should go after accusers of men…I really had to come to that myself.
