Former President Bill Clinton’s disastrous book tour just went from bad to worse.
Clinton sat for another interview that raised ugly questions about his scandalous past.
And now Clinton is finished for good after one of his accusers dropped the hammer about this rape.
Bill Clinton’s book tour for “The President is Missing” has turned into a nightmare for the nation’s 42nd President.
It all started when Craig Melvin of NBC asked Clinton about the #MeToo movement and the sexual abuse allegations from his past.
Clinton flew off the handle and ranted about how he was the real victim.
That snowballed into a massive controversy that threatened to end Bill Clinton’s political career and kill any chances to line his pockets with the proceeds from his book sales.
But Clinton continued the tour under the hope he could clean up his mess.
That was a major mistake.
In an interview with PBS Newshour host Judy Woodruff, Clinton was asked about Senator Al Franken’s resignation and the changing norms of sexual misconduct.
Clinton responded with a mind-blowing answer.
He claimed, “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.”
The answer was so insanely tone deaf that even liberal journalists mocked Clinton.

Still, if that had been the worst of the fallout, Clinton would have been able to survive unscathed.
But then Juanita Broaddrick – the woman who leveled credible allegations that Bill Clinton raped her in the 1970s – stepped forward and dropped a nuclear bomb on the former President.
Broaddrick blasted Clinton stating that the norms about what you can and cannot do to people have never changed: “Sooooo….Bill Clinton thinks he should get a pass because it was 1978 when HE RAPED ME….and HE knows it’s not acceptable in today’s society???”
Rape was just as unacceptable in the 1970s as it is in 2018.
But maybe Clinton never understood that.
This book tour has been one embarrassing blow after another.
The very first interview set the tone that liberal journalists – now that they have no more political use for Clinton – were going to hold him accountable for the allegations of rape and sexual assault which have followed him throughout his political career.
Clinton sensed this and even pointed it out in the NBC interview by saying that the only reason he was being asked these questions was because of Trump.
Liberal journalists are happy to throw Clinton under the bus because they believe they can use the “credibility” of attacking a former Democrat President to demand Trump resign from office because of the baseless allegations against him.
But to the women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, this is not about politics.
For Juanita Broaddrick it is about long awaited justice.
Now the #MeToo movement is providing her a platform to finally receive a hearing on her allegations.
And Broaddrick is taking advantage of it to the fullest.
