Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) during an interview on C-Span’s “Newsmakers” said that Democrats need to return funds raised by womanizer Bill Clinton if they really support women as they claim. The interview airs on Sunday.
“They can’t have it both ways,” Paul said, and so I really think that anybody who wants to take money from Bill Clinton or have a fundraiser has a lot of explaining to do. In fact, I think they should give the money back. If they want to take position on women’s rights, by all means do. But you can’t do it and take it from a guy who was using his position of authority to take advantage of young women in the workplace.”
Senator Paul has already called Clinton a “sexual predator” for his affair with the then-young intern Monica Lewinsky.
Asked on Newsmax TV whether Clinton is an unsavory character, Paul repeated an assertion he made in January that former president Clinton is a “sexual predator.”
“Yeah, I mean, a predator, a sexual predator, basically. Repetitive,” Paul said. “There’s … at least a half a dozen public women who have come forward. Some of them did sue in the (workplace).”
“If they want to be credible in saying they defend women’s rights in the workplace, they really need to disown and really return any contributions that Bill Clinton’s either raising for people or giving to people,” Paul said.
Paul is getting heat from both sides of the aisle for his controversial statements, but honestly, isn’t it ironic that a womanizer is preaching about women’s rights? It stands to reason though that Bill Clinton would be very supportive of abortion and birth control since it could make his womanizing go far more smoothly.
Whether one agrees or not, it’s refreshing to hear a Republican stand up for something and call out Democrats for their hypocrisy. We all know the war on women is manufactured. However, no good will probably come from this line of attack by Senator Paul. People love Bill Clinton. But, who cares? I applaud Senator Paul’s honesty and courage.
