My point is the pussy grabbing comment is 10 years old.
Bill Clinton had multiple affairs in office, disrespecting woman. Blow jobs in the oval office and I don't see him being demonized now for it now? Why not?
Um...cause he's not president anymore....
If I remember, he was nailed to the wall pretty bad at the time, to the point of being impeached for perjury. I was the only thing on the news for a year, right? Really sick of this argument.
If on your daughter's 28th birthday, some 70 year old guy approached you and said "yo Tick! I grabbed your girl by the cooch on her 18th birthday without asking because of my societal status", would you brush it off because it happened 10 years earlier?
As the father of a daughter who is 16, and a stepdaughter who is 18, I would not brush it off IF HE ACTUALLY TOUCHED HER. I'd call the police. If he said "Hey Stads, you know, I could have grabbed your daughter's pussy if I wanted to, because, well, I can!" it would be a different story. I might still grab HIM by the balls, because, being 20 years younger and still in decent shape, I could, but it is a very different dynamic.
I don't excuse the underlying idea, and I have had repeated talks with both my kids about the nature of the world we live in, but let's not make false distinctions about "POTUS NOW" versus "was POTUS THEN", when we gloss over the very real fact that Clinton DID lie under oath (that was his hearing, not ANYTHING he did with an intern) and that he DID arguably violate Federal law by having sexual relations (such that they were) with an intern that worked for him (in many circumstances, "consent" is negated when there is a clear power differential in play), and here we're talking about him bragging about POSSIBILITIES to an equally slimy reporter. This is the functional and intellectual equivalent of Anthony Michael Hall bragging about his "girlfriend" in "Canada" in The Breakfast Club. To this day, we have no idea if there actually WAS a girlfriend in Canada.
