The Women of 'The View' Trash Clinton's Accusers, Call Them 'Tramps'
The women on "The View" were in high dudgeon Monday morning because Donald Trump showcased four "tramps" at a press conference before the town hall in St. Louis on Sunday. All four of the women claimed they have been victimized by Bill and/or Hillary Clinton.
At the presser, Trump was flanked by Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broaddrick, who have each accused Bill Clinton of varying degrees of sexual misconduct. Also present was Kathy Shelton, who was brutally raped by a 41-year-old drifter in 1975. Hillary Clinton defended the man by lying about the child victim, and was able to have his sentence reduced from first-degree rape to "unlawful fondling of a minor." Her entire sad story can be read here. Some of the women have also accused Hillary Clinton of intimidating them after Bill sexually harassed/assaulted them.
The hosts of "The View" were particularly piqued that Trump would have the women sit with his family in the front row during the town hall.
"That was really the worst!" Joy Behar exclaimed.
"May I just point this out?" an agitated Whoopi Goldberg rasped. "Several of those women slept with him knowing he was a married man." Whoopi didn't bother to specify which of the women had willingly slept with Bill and none of the other women on "The View" spoke up to correct her.
The truth is, not one of the women at the press conference was ever Clinton's mistress. One of them -- Juanita Broaddrick -- in fact claims she was brutally raped by Clinton in 1978 when he was running for governor of Arkansas. Even now, at age 73, she says the pain never goes away.
According to Broaddrick, Clinton forced himself on her when she was staying in Little Rock for a nurses convention. Clinton had told her during a previous encounter at a campaign event that if she was ever in town, she should look him up. Broaddrick was married and an enthusiastic Clinton supporter and volunteer of his campaign at the time. They set up what Broaddrick thought would be a professional campaign meeting in the hotel coffee shop. When Bill called and changed the meeting venue to her hotel room because there were reporters in the coffee shop, she thought nothing of it.
"I felt a real friendship toward this man and I didn't really feel any danger in him coming up to my room," Broaddrick told Lisa Meyers on Dateline NBC in November of 1998. She soon found herself fighting him off, and her upper lip was bitten when she resisted. She claims she was raped in that hotel room. "He was just a different person at that moment. He was a vicious, awful person," Broaddrick told Meyers. She said Bill's only words to her as he was leaving were "you'd better put some ice on that," meaning her lip. You can watch Broaddrick retell her story in that Dateline interview here.
