Somehow, this is actually about the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The host of some TV show you’ve never heard tried making an insane argument that democrats, who don’t have the votes, can still block Kavanaugh’s appointment to the high court but along the way claimed that President Trump is a way worse sexual assaulter than “Rapey” Bill Clinton. I guess that all depends on what the meaning of “is” is doesn’t it?
Krystal Ball (yeah that’s her real name) is the host of a show on The Hill and she penned this silly op/ed: Stopping Kavanaugh would be worth Democrats Losing the Senate
The basic premise is that democrats could stop Kavanaugh from getting confirmed, but they’d lose control of the Senate. This is never ever explained, nor is the fact that Republicans currently have control of the Senate, which is why democrats can’t block Kavaluagh’s nomination in the first place. Like I said, this pure insanity, but the opening of this piece of liberal logic has one of the most absurd things ever uttered by the left:
Democrats, I have a complete fantasy hypothetical question for you: Suppose you were offered a political prize so valuable that you’d sell out everything the party represents, coddle white supremacists, rip babies from the arms of their mothers, force women into back alley abortions, risk nuclear war, alienate our allies, empower a serial sexual harasser and liar even worse than Bill Clinton and possibly compromise the entire country to Putin? Could you imagine selling out your country in this way for anything? Of course not-but that is precisely what the GOP has done. (my emphasis)
All of that is complete liberal hogwash, but the line about Bill Clinton? He literally raped women. He groped them, he harassed them, and he assaulted them. I’m sorry, maybe Krystal Ball can remind us of who Donald Trump has raped, harassed, or touched inappropriately. I realize that there are some liberal operatives that have made unsubstantiated and evidence-free claims against Trump, but Bill’s misdeeds are a matter of public and legal record.
Bill Clinton was a terrible president, is a horrible person, and probably never won any superlatives in high school, but there is one thing he is tops at: Bill is a far better rapist than any other US President. I’m almost certain some liberal women’s group gave him a plaque for that achievement. Didn’t he win Planned Parenthood’s “Rapist of the Year” award back in 2000?
As for Ball’s additional claim that Trump is a worse liar than Clinton, she may win on a technicality because of her odd choice of words. She’s saying that Trump is worse at lying than Clinton, which could mean that Trump isn’t a liar like Bill. Even taken at face value, no one is worse at lying than Bill Clinton. He was impeached and disbarred for his lies and I can’t think of anyone lest who has paid a price like that for being full of shit. Clinton is clearly a really bad liar.
Nice try, but fail. As much as liberals hate Donald Trump, he is nowhere as bad Bill Clinton, even with the stuff the left makes up about the current President.
