Hillary Clinton defends Al Franken: ‘He’s a good friend of mine…’
Hillary Clinton, the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, defended embattled Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., during a Friday interview with with WABC radio host Rita Cosby, the New York Daily News said. She deflected the scandal to attack President Trump and Judge Roy Moore, instead.
“He’s a good friend of mine and I deeply regret what he did. There’s no excuse for his behavior but he has called for an investigation and apologized to the woman involved,” Clinton told Cosby. “Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither.”
She added: “There’s a double standard: the Republicans deny, deny, deny and divert, divert, divert and they get away with it because the press is more concerned about someone who accepted responsibility than people who refuse to take responsibility.”
The New York Daily News added:
Clinton also pushed back against Democratic Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, who made headlines earlier this week when she said President Bill Clinton should have stepped down following his sex scandal involving White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
“That was a painful time not only in our marriage but in our country,” Clinton said, referring to the impeachment of her husband in 1999. “But it was investigated fully, it was addressed at the time, he was held accountable. That is very different than what people seem to be remembering from that period.”
Contrastingly, Clinton was incredulous as to why Trump isn’t facing the same scrutiny her husband did.
“If you’re going to hold people to the same standards, there are a lot of parallels that are not being followed in recent times,” she further said.
There is, of course, one glaring difference between Franken/Clinton and Judge Roy Moore — evidence. In Clinton’s case, there was the now-infamous blue dress. In Franken’s case, there’s photographic evidence. There is no real evidence in the case of Judge Moore.
True, attorney Gloria Allred has put forth a yearbook that Moore allegedly signed in 1977. But questions have been raised about the veracity of that signature and Allred has so far refused to hand it over for independent forensic analysis. But even if the signature somehow turned out to be Moore’s, all that would prove is that he signed a yearbook at some point — it is hardly proof of sexual misconduct.
Allred, by the way, admitted that she never asked her client if she witnessed Moore signing the book — something that should have obviously been asked at the beginning.
Here’s video of her comments:
“She is such a hypocrite,” Jim Hoft said at the Gateway Pundit. “If Franken was a Republican, she would be the loudest voice in the nation calling for his resignation.
“Maybe she could spend a little more time trying to accept the results of the election and less time opining on current events,” he added.
As we reported earlier, Clinton became a direct threat to U.S. democracy by her own definition when she questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s election in November.
