Last week former President Bill Clinton was in an interview with PBS’ Judy Woodruf and made the biggest freudian slip of his life.
He must have though the mic was off because what he said can’t really be what he actually thinks… or maybe it really is. Oh my.
When Woodruff asked about former Minnesota senator Al Franken leaving the Senate after sexual harassment allegations, Clinton answered, “I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will …”
Ummm, excuse me Bill???
Here’s how the exchange played out.
“I assume you think that what happened with you was more serious than what happened with Senator — former Senator Al Franken. He was driven from office, from the U.S. Senate. So, norms have changed. Do you think that’s a good thing?”
“Well, in general, I think it’s a good thing, yes. I think it’s a good thing that we should all have higher standards. 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.”
“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.”
Well let’s hope Bill Clinton stops walking around. Women across the nation would be better of and more confortable with this creeper out of sight.
