Skip to comments.WEINER SHOULD SAY: ‘I’LL QUIT WHEN YOU APOLOGIZE TO BROADDRICK AND WILLEY’

My unsolicited advice to Anthony Weiner is to drop out of the race for mayor of New York City. But since you insist on staying, hold a press conference:
My fellow New Yorkers,
The New York Times, among others, tells me to quit the race. Here’s my proposition. I’ll resign when the Times poses this question. In the upcoming NBC-produced miniseries called “Hillary,” who will play Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey?
What, confused expressions? Interesting how the Weiner-get-out crowd forgets that “everybody lies about sex” — except when it comes to politicians whose last name is not Clinton.
Digital First Media, in a piece run by a bunch of news outlets, put out a list of the eight most recent political scandals. I’ll read the entry for President Bill Clinton: “The scandal: In 1995, Clinton had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, then gave a misleading answer about it in a sworn deposition in a civil case.”
Are you kidding me? That’s the Bill Clinton “scandal”?
Maybe I just dreamt that a credible, professional woman named Juanita Broaddrick appeared on NBC’s “Dateline”? And that she accused Bill Clinton not of sending dirty pictures, but of rape.
When then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton was running for governor in 1978, Broaddrick, a nursing home operator, was a campaign volunteer. Clinton invited her to visit him at his campaign office when she was in Little Rock. A week later, Clinton suggested they meet instead in her hotel coffee shop. But because there were “too many reporters” in the hotel lobby, Clinton suggested they have coffee in her hotel room.
“Stupid me, I ordered coffee to the room,” Broaddrick said. “I thought we were going to talk about the campaign.” On “Dateline,” she said: “I first pushed him away. I just told him ‘no.’ … He tries to kiss me again. He starts biting on my lip. … And then he forced me down on the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him ‘no.’ … He wouldn’t listen to me.”
Maybe I just dreamt about another credible woman, a Clinton campaign contributor named Kathleen Willey, who on “60 Minutes” accused then-President Clinton — not of calling himself Carlos Danger, but of sexual battery?
Willey, a White House volunteer and self-described “good friend” of the president, described her encounter when she asked Clinton for a paid position. “I just told him that my husband was in financial difficulty and that things were at a crisis point,” said Willey. But in a small room off the Oval Office, she says, Clinton hugged and kissed her. When she tried to push him away, “he touched my breasts with his hand … and then he whispered … ‘I’ve wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.’ … He took my hand, and he put it … on his (aroused) genitals.” Finally, says Willey, she managed to push him away.
Feminist Gloria Steinem defended Clinton. She said his treatment of Willey — even if she was telling he truth — does not amount to sexual harassment, let alone sexual battery. Why? “(Willey) pushed him away,” Steinem wrote, “and it never happened again. In other words, President Clinton took ‘no’ for an answer.” So, if the touch-ee says no, then the touch-er commits no offense — provided, of course, that the touch-er is named Clinton, not Weiner.
Is it because these credible accusations of rape and sexual assault were never reported to authorities? But then neither did the eight women who’ve claimed sex abuse by the mayor of San Diego. Nor did many of the military servicewomen who recently gave congressional testimony about alleged rapes and assaults in the military.
Despite what I’ve done, I’ve never touched any woman after my marriage other than my wife, let alone had oral sex in the Oval Office. I sent texts and photographs. I’ve had therapy. Has the man many in the media affectionately call “Big Dawg” done so?
My defenders never maligned an accuser. When Paula Jones, the Arkansas government employee, accused Clinton of sexual battery, defender James Carville said, “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park; you never know what you’ll find.”
None of my aides ever called someone like the truthful Monica Lewinsky “delusional,” let alone call her a liar, as the indignant, finger-wagging Clinton did on international television.
At first, I blamed a hacker for the photo that started the controversy. At first, Hillary blamed “the vast right-wing conspiracy.”
I never lied about my sexcapades under oath. I never settled a sexual harassment lawsuit for $850,000 after saying it lacked merit. I never pled guilty to perjury and never became the first sitting president ever held in contempt of court for perjury.
My wife’s forgiven me — just as Hillary forgave her husband, time and time and time again.
Finally, I’m OK with resigning. But I’m not OK with hypocrisy, double standards and selective memory. I’ll resign when the media and pundit class that defended Bill Clinton apologize to Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey.
Then I’ll know you’re serious. No questions, please.
Larry Elder is a best-selling author and radio talk-show host.
Hillary’s lunch and breakfast meetings with Obama and Biden certainly causes one to ask “what’s up”? How about if Biden steps down now.......Hillary is the VP running for President in 2016. Certainly circumvents a lot of problems.
Too funny! If Weiner would say this it would really put the cat among the pigeons. The Clinton’s would try to kill him.....
With Huma being Hillary’s “confidante” there’s about the same chance of this story happening as Salma Hayek ditching her billionaire husband and calling me for a date....
LOL! But still on the off chance it does happen and you can’t make it......
Here’s an oldie but a goodie from MiaT: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/971224/posts
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
Thanks for the link.
I don’t know if the link to the video still works but MIaT put it all over the net during the reign of krinton. I do know that NBC refused to provide the verbatim transcripts after the airing of the segment and that was a departure from their habit. Also, no copies of the video were on the net or available from NBC. I had a lousy copy and sent it to her; after that, it was public domain.
A horrible experience for Ms. Broaddrick and a real example of what trash we have in power in this country. The truly frightening thing to me is that I find myself being wistful for the low-class grifter and his carpet-bagging comrade of a wife. Their rustic criminality is almost quaint compared to the current thug.
What do you mean try. Apparently, they seem to be quite good at “disappearing” people when they need to.
I think Amb. Stevens is 62 or 63 in the list of people that have died/been killed while working with the Clintons.
If you recall, at this point in ‘01 it was clear that Mark Greene FINALLY was going to win an election and become Mayor of New York by tying up the D nomination. That conventional wisdom lasted until NYC’s tragic primary day.
None of my aides ever called someone like the truthful Monica Lewinsky delusional, let alone call her a liar, as the indignant, finger-wagging Clinton did on international television.
LOL - good one...
If Slick Willy can be rehabilitated by the MSM, Democrats, NOW, etc., then the wienie Wiener should be given the same opportunity. He should be able to go out and get $200,000 speaking engagement, get his bimbo wife a government job, and generally rub his perverted lifestyle in the voters faces. Remember, this is Progressive America. Oh, by the way, Slick Hands Filner may need some of that Progressive rehabilitation also.
Thanks for the ping!
Can you say Ft. Marcy Park II! Huma would be a widow.
