Donald Trump and his campaign have been criticized for their treatment of women and justifiably so, as previously covered both the candidate and his campaign manager have displayed misogyny during the course of the 2016 race. It would be unfair however, to point out the mistreatment of women by the presumptive Republican nominee without showcasing Hillary’s. Much of the former secretary of state’s personal war on women revolve around the perfidiousness of her husband the former president.
Bubba Clinton’s constant infidelities in themselves are not a real issue in the 2016 presidential campaign. What should be an issue however, is how Hillary treated, and at times threatened these women, especially the women who claim they were sexually attacked by Bill Clinton.
This is the story of one of those women, Juanita Broaddrick who says that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, and three weeks later Hillary Clinton implied to her that she knew about the rape and that Broaddrick should keep quiet about it, and when NBC interviewed her about the rape they would not allow her to talk about the Hillary incident.
In a 1999 Wall Street Journal article Juanita Broaddrick told about the horrible day in 1978 when she accepted the invitation of Bill Clinton, then running for Governor of Arkansas to visit his campaign headquarters next time she was in Little Rock. When she was in the city attending a nurses conference she called the office to arrange a visit. Clinton wasn’t there but ” an aide who seemed to expect her call, and who directed her to call the attorney general at his apartment. They arranged to meet at the coffee shop of the Camelot Hotel, where the seminar was held” But the future president said it was too noisy and they should have coffee in her room.
…the conversation did not linger long on the candidate’s plans for social reform. For, Mrs. Broaddrick relates, he then put his arms around her, startling her. “He told me, ‘We’re both married people,’ ” she recalls. She recalls, too, that in her effort to make him see she had no interest of this kind in him, she told him yes, they were both married but she was deeply involved with another man–which was true.
That other man was David Broaddrick who at the time of the WSJ interview was her husband of 18 years.
But that didn’t matter to Bill Clinton, “she says, got her onto the bed, held her down forcibly and bit her lips. The sexual entry itself was not without some pain, she recalls, because of her stiffness and resistance. When it was over, she says, he looked down at her and said not to worry, he was sterile–he had had mumps when he was a child.”
“As though that was the thing on my mind–I wasn’t thinking about pregnancy, or about anything,” she says. “I felt paralyzed and was starting to cry.” As he got to the door, she remembers, he turned. “This is the part that always stays in my mind–the way he put on his sunglasses. Then he looked at me and said, ‘You better put some ice on that.’ And then he left.”
Her friend Norma Rogers, a nurse who had accompanied her on the trip, found her on the bed. She was, Ms. Rogers related in an interview, in a state of shock–lips swollen to double their size, mouth discolored from the biting, her pantyhose torn in the crotch. “She just stayed on the bed and kept repeating, ‘I can’t believe what happened.’ ” Ms. Rogers applied ice to Juanita’s mouth, and they drove back home, stopping along the way for more ice..”
