Bill Clinton a sexual predator, Rand Paul says

By Jonathan Easley

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday accused former President Bill Clinton of “predatory” sexual behavior, saying he used the Oval Office to take advantage of Monica Lewinsky.

“I think, really, the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this,” Paul said on NBC’s "Meet the Press." “He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that and that is predatory behavior and ...  we shouldn’t want to associate with people who would take advantage of a young girl in his office.”

In an interview with Vogue magazine, Paul’s wife, Kelley, said Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential run could be derailed by her husband’s “predatory” behavior while in office.

“I would say his behavior was predatory, offensive to women,” she said.

Paul on Sunday said he agreed with his wife.

“The Democrats - one of the big issues they’ve concocted is saying Republicans are committing a war on women,” he said. “One of the workplace laws and rules that, I think, is good is that bosses shouldn’t prey on young interns in their office.”

“This isn’t having an affair, I mean this isn’t me saying 'he’s having an affair and we shouldn’t talk to him,' ” he continued. “Someone who takes advantage of a young girl in their office? I mean, really, and then they have the gall to stand up and say 'Republicans are having a war on women?' ”

However, Paul said Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be judged by her husband’s actions, and that it likely wouldn’t be an issue if she decides to run for president in 2016.

“But, I think, it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton in history,” he said.

“With regard to his place in history, it certainly is a discussion and I think in my state people tend to frown on that. If there was someone in my community who did that, ... we would disassociate with someone who took advantage of a woman in the workplace.”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Hillary Clinton has established her own identity, separate from her husband, and that voters will be able to distinguish between the two.

“Hillary Clinton has established her own reputation, her own name, and her own basis for running for president should she choose to do it,” he said on "Meet the Press." “And the issues that…Sen. Paul raised have been litigated in the public square for over a decade. For goodness sakes, let’s judge Hillary Clinton based on her talents and her vision for America should she run for president.”

“There are people who believe that though he may have done the wrong thing, he paid a heavy price for it in terms of the impeachment trial and beyond,” Durbin continued. “And if the Republicans like my friend…want to dwell on these problems from the past, I don’t think it’s going to resonate.”

What Paul said was perfectly true. Taking advantage of a subordinate is the very definition of sexual predation. 

She would not have 'wanted it' had he not been POTUS. He would screw anything that would hold still of course = sexual predator.

The man was a disgrace - and his wife was worse from an ethical standpoint.

Gennifer Flowers...

Paula Jones...

Juanita Broaddrick (note: Clinton denies the Brpaddrick allegations)...

Kathleen Willey...


...and of course, Monica Lewinsky.

Yeah, I'd say that many paramours constitutes a predator, or at least a serial womanizer.

Rand Paul is making a tactical move here.  He is blunting the left's effort to control the narrative - by torpedoing the "War on Women" tripe.  Everything he says is true - but that no longer matters to today's brain-numb, sound bite electorate.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I believe you hit the nail squarely on the head.
