One of the leaders of the Trump sex assault push once offered Bill Clinton oral sex?

American Spectator:
In 1998, Nina Burleigh, speaking for feminists in the mainstream media, said of Bill Clinton, “I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”

What is Burleigh doing these days? Filing stories for Newsweek about Donald Trump as a groper. She is part of the Clintons’ suddenly puritanical praetorian guard in the media, gasping at the prospect of such a “pig” in the White House even as they carry Bill Clinton back to it.

No matter how crass and sex-drenched feminism becomes — reveling in band names like “pussy riot,” cackling at the “vagina monologues,” celebrating movies that satisfy “rape fantasies” — it still reserves the right to turn prim on any politician who dares cross it.

Burleigh once explained her infamous remark by saying, “I said it because I thought it was high time for someone to tweak the white, middle-aged beltway gang taking Clinton to task for sexual harassment. These men had neither the personal experience nor the credentials to know sexual harassment when they saw it, nor to give a good goddamn about it if they did. The insidious use of sexual harassment laws to bring down a president for his pro-female politics was the context in which I spoke.”

In other words, the “politics” of the accused determines his guilt: what is “insidious” for Clinton becomes imperative for Trump. Enjoying maximum power over politics and culture, the czarinas of feminism have informed Americans headed for Hillary’s animal farm that “not all pigs are equal.” Hence, Hillary, with grimly comic gall, can say that a man like Trump doesn’t “belong in the White House” while riding back to it on the coattails of a credibly accused rapist.
...
There is a clear double standard when it comes to media high dudgeon about sexual conduct.

While I in no away excuse the kind of conduct that Trump is accused of, I have a strong distrust of liberals who have excused their own from similar conduct.  They are also making a grave political mistake.  If their candidate wins this election because of sexual innuendo, she will have no mandate for her policies and the Trump supporters will be less likely to accept the legitimacy of her victory.

If she expects to be effective, she should run on the issues and not on Trump's alleged misconduct.
