Every now and again, someone brings up Donald Trump’s affairs in an interview with Melania.
She usually brushes it aside, and discussion turns back to what she wore, or how she plans to tackle online bullying whilst remaining married to the premier Twitter troll of all time.
Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is still getting grilled about husband Bill’s affair all of 22 years later. Then again, interviews like the one she had with CBS News on the Sunday Morning show don’t help, especially given the current #MeToo movement she has advocated for.
At the time Bill Clinton, 49, was the president and Lewinsky, 22, was a White House intern.
Here’s the section of Hillary’s interview that raised the most eyebrows:
When the story broke, the US House voted to impeach Mr Clinton for lying under oath and obstructing justice. The US Senate then acquitted him, and he remained in office.
More from Hillary’s interview via NewsAU:
…Mrs Clinton said sexism is still front and centre in politics.
She pointed out Brett Kavanaugh’s aggressive questioning of Democratic Sensators Dianne Feinstein and Amy Klobuchar during his US Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
“He didn’t do that to the men,” Mrs Clinton said.
Mrs Clinton said sexism is a reason for her loss to Mr Trump in 2016, in addition to Russian election meddling and the investigation into her e-mails.
“If you watched the way Trump debated me, it was just imbued with sexism. Making fun of me for preparing. Well, you know, that’s the old, like, ‘Oh, yeah, the girl in the class who’s always prepared. I don’t need to be prepared,’” Mrs Clinton said.
Then there’s what happened when Trump’s Access Hollywood tape came to light, where he bragged about grabbing women by the nether regions without their consent.
Or, as it is commonly known, sexually assaulting them:
During the 2016 campaign, Mr Trump faced a damning leak of an Access Hollywood video where he was caught on tape bragging about grabbing women’s genitalia. His response before a 2016 debate was to hold a press conference with several women who accused Mr Clinton of sexual misconduct or assault and accused Mrs Clinton of trying to silence them.
Mrs Clinton said she played “no role” in criticising the character of the women who accused her husband of sexual misconduct.
“No role,” Mrs Clinton said. “I take responsibility for my life and my actions.”
Sure, but dismissing the power dynamics in play between a 49-year-old president and a 22-year-old intern is pretty tone deaf. It just seems like she is tired of having to answer for Bill’s behaviour, relating to an affair that happened between 1995 and 1997, having had her shot at the presidency yanked from under her feet by a serial misogynist.
Oh – just remember, nobody respects women more than Donald Trump. Nobody.
