Monica Lewinsky Affair: Rand Paul Calls Bill Clinton a ‘Predator’

| by Emily Smith

Sen. Rand Paul suggested that former President Bill Clinton’s “predatory” behavior should receive more attention if Hillary Clinton decides to run for president, according to NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

During the show Paul complained the Democrats claim Republicans are waging a war on women, which he believes is hypocritical.

“One of the workplace laws and rules that I think are good is that bosses should not prey on young interns in their office,” Paul said. “[Democrats] have the gall to stand up and say, ‘Republicans are having a war on women.’”

When host David Gregory asked if it would be unfair to judge Hillary Clinton on the actions of her husband, Paul was careful to answer.

“It’s not Hillary’s fault, but it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton in history,” he said. “Sometimes it’s hard to separate one from the other.”

Democratic Senate Majority Whip Dick Durban appeared on “Meet the Press” immediately after Paul and defended both Clintons, encouraging viewers to judge Hillary Clinton on her talents and vision of America instead of her husband’s past.

Durban added that if Republicans want to continue to dwell on events like the Monica Lewinsky affair, they will no longer have resonance.
