Hillary Clinton formally endorsed presumptive 2020 nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday, but the timing of that pledge of support — especially in light of the sexual assault allegation against the former VP — seems particularly suspect.
For her part, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro slammed Clinton for the move Tuesday and suggested it might be the “kiss of death” for Biden’s campaign, considering that Clinton has earned a reputation as an “enabler” of “sexual predators.”
“The kiss of death”
Pirro’s comments came in a segment with Fox colleague Tucker Carlson on his eponymous program and, as usual, she held nothing back as she ripped into the former secretary of State, senator, and first lady for her tendency to befriend and hang around men with known histories of sexual misconduct.
“You know, Hillary Clinton endorsing Joe Biden when he’s been accused of…not sexual harassment but sexual assault, is like the kiss of death,” Pirro said, according to Fox.
She continued: “The woman is literally a standard-bearer, the magnet, the enabler, for sexual predators.”
Pirro went on to name off a long list of men who Clinton has allegedly enabled.
“Whether it had to do with her husband who was credibly accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick, who had a busted lip, disheveled clothes, and made an immediate outcry,” Pirro said, “or her laughing about the rapists who raped a 12-year-old into a coma, or her emails that were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, or Jeffrey Epstein, or hanging out with [Harvey] Weinstein, that everyone in Hollywood knew what was going on,” the former judge added. “Need I go on?”
Clinton “does not stand for women”
Pirro also accused Clinton Tuesday of being “a woman who does not stand for women.”
“And for her right now to endorse Joe Biden is really to ignore what all of the #MeToo movement has been talking about, when they yelled at us during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, ‘All women need to be believed’ — except if they’re Republican or if they’re accusing a Democrat,” she added.
Pirro went on to compare and contrast the allegation put forward by Biden’s accuser, a former Senate aide named Tara Reade, with that of then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s 2018 accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, Fox reported. The former judge pointed out how much more credible Reade’s claims are — in the eyes of the law — compared to Ford’s.
“So this is just politics,” Pirro said of Clinton’s endorsement. “Pure, unadulterated politics. It’s about power, supporting people who you want to be in power, and it has nothing to do with women and protecting women in the system.”
Judge Jeanine just shredded Hillary Clinton for being a power-hungry political opportunist who has no qualms about enabling and partnering with sexual predators, provided she stands to benefit in some way. One would think that flies in the face of everything that is supposedly held dear by so-called feminists and the #MeToo movement Clinton claims to support.
