Buzzfeed has a long, interesting interview with Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who says Bill Clinton raped her in an Arkansas hotel room almost 40 years ago. Maybe this case has always bugged you too, because we are supposed to believe women when it comes to rape….
Her friends found her with bruised lips, crying, right after the rape allegedly occurred. That’s what we call “contemporaneous evidence” when we believe women.
In other words, Wonkette thinks the evidence is strong that Bill actually did rape Juanita.
So–let the excuses begin! Let's see…
Everybody did it back then.
I can absolutely see Bill Clinton doing this (then, not now) and not even thinking of it as rape, but thinking of it as dominant, alpha sex. I can see a LOT of men doing that during that time period, before we started telling them in the ’80s, “hey, that is rape, do not do that.”
He never did it again, which makes it OK. Also, he never told anyone, which makes it double-OK.
I think you can do something horrible, realize later that it is horrible, be ashamed forever and try to keep it secret and never do it again.
He said he was sorry.
(I’m Catholic; we’re all forgiven, if we’re sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize).
And besides, Ivana said in divorce court that Trump raped her–so there!
(I’m pretty sure he did rape his wife though, seeing as how she said so under oath.)
Bottom line on Wonkette's take: Bill rapes a youg woman he hardly knows in a hotel room–but that's really all right if you're rooting for his wife to become president.
