Majority of U.S. voters say Clinton is a sexual predator

Bill Clinton just can’t seem to promote his new book without questions over sexual misconduct coming up!

In a Thursday interview with PBS Newshour, Clinton, 71, suggested that “norms have changed” regarding “what you can do to somebody against their will” after host Judy Woodruff asked the former president for his thoughts on the changing standards that drove Democrat Al Franken to step down.

I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work.” -Bill Clinton

“You don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good,” Clinton continued.

“I think that — I will be honest — the Franken case, for me, was a difficult case, a hard case. There may be things I don’t know. But I — maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person” said Clinton.

Of note, Al Franken wasn’t accused of “crowding” anyone’s space. Several women said he “forcibly kissed” and groped them.

Meanwhile, according to a new Rasmussen poll53% of U.S. voters say Clinton is a sexual predator.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 24% of Likely U.S. Voters consider Clinton a victim of his political opponents. Fifty-three percent (53%) describe the ex-president as a sexual predator instead. Another 24% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) -Rasmussen

Last week, Clinton erupted at NBC’s Craig Melvin over questions about Monica Lewinsky. Clinton accused Melving of giving a one-sided interview.

“This was litigated 20 years ago. Two-thirds of the American people sided with me,” Clinton said. “They were not insensitive that I had a sexual harassment policy when I was governor in the ’80s. I had two women chiefs of staff when I was governor. Women were over-represented in the attorney general’s office in the ’70s for their percentage of the bar.”

The former President continued, “I’ve had nothing but women leaders in my office since I left. You are giving one side and omitting facts.”

Melvin defended himself, saying that he was “not trying to present a side.”
