NBC Asks Bill Clinton About Monica Lewinsky and #MeToo. They Forgot To Ask This Glaring Question

A missed opportunity by the American media to grill the ex-POTUS about his many alleged sexual assault victims during the so-called #MeToo era?

Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who has accused Bill Clinton of violently raping her in her hotel room in Little Rock in 1978, was not pleased when she saw the former president’s interview with NBC that aired Monday. \

In the interview, Craig Melvin asked Clinton if he views his relationship with Monica Lewinsky differently in the era of #MeToo.

He said he didn’t, and that he didn’t believe he owed Ms. Lewinsky a personal apology, adding that “This was litigated 20 years ago. Two-thirds of the American people sided with me.”

He also made sure to sneak in his opinion on the current president as he blamed the press for twisting the story about Monica Lewinsky, something that former presidents traditionally do not do publically.

“A lot of the facts have been omitted to make the story work,” he claimed. “I think partly because they’re frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don’t seem to care.”

It is well understood that, despite the balance of power, his relationship with Lewinsky was consensual. Neither he nor Melvin said a word about the actual rape allegations made against him over the years, however, a fact which Broaddrick finds to be quite conspicuous.

“I can’t believe there is not a reporter out there,” Broaddrick told Breitbart News in an interview following the broadcast. “I mean, this person had a perfect opportunity today to ask Bill Clinton about the allegations of sexual assault and rape.”

“Why doesn’t NBC have me on to discuss the rape? Of course, they are the same network that held my 1999 interview until after the impeachment hearing.”

She is referring to an interview she gave with the network in which she gave her full account of the horrific attack she claims to have suffered at the hands of the then-future President of the United States.

The interview was notoriously aired a full 35 days after Clinton’s impeachment hearings, a fact Broaddrick and many others see to be a serious failure on the part of NBC.

“You know, his interview took away so much from the real victims over the years,” Broadrick said. “The victims against which he perpetrated the sexual assault and harassment and of course raping me.

“I’m not concerned with his consensual sex. I care about him being brought to justice for the crimes he committed against me and the others. That’s what I care about.”

A missed opportunity by the American media to grill the ex-POTUS about his many alleged sexual assault victims during the so-called #MeToo era? Who would have thought it?

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
