MoDo Dumps on Hillary

For John, BLUFHunny Bunny shouldn't get a free pass on this.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

At The Old Gray Lady this weekend MoDo takes a swipe at Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and manages to clip Bill Clinton in the maneuver.  The Opinion Piece is titled "Leo, Hillary and Their Bears".  At the end of it she does get down to The Honorable Ms Clinton's problem, her husband.
In Iowa last fall, Hillary promised to fight sexual assault on campuses, saying that survivors had “the right to be heard” and “the right to be believed.”  But when a woman last month asked if the women who claimed they were sexually harassed by Bill Clinton should be believed, Hillary faltered, replying lamely:  “I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence.”  She’s in a dicey spot on this, as Trump well knows.

Hillary reacted to his ad by tweeting, “It’s important to stand up to bullies.”

Trump can be a bully.  But Hillary was a bully, too, in the way she dealt with her husband’s paramours.  Her impulse, as Lewinsky wrote in Vanity Fair, was to blame the woman — even herself. Hillary was not going to be hurt twice by Those Women, letting them damage her marriage and her political future.  If someone had to be collateral damage, it was not going to be Hillary.  For now, she will have to deal with that old show business saw: Exit, pursued by a bear.
