On Friday, The New York Times highlighted a sexual harassment cover up on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign. Yes, THAT Hillary Clinton (see Hillary Clinton Lackey Attacks Anthony Bourdain. Whose Girlfriend Accused Weinstein of Rape… and Child Rape Victim Speaks Out: ‘Hillary Clinton defended my rapist…’).
A senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clinton’s request, according to four people familiar with what took place. Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.
Well, someone tweeting under the “@HillaryClinton” account responded. Whoever thought this was a good idea also needs to be moved to a new job.
I called her today to tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard.

Deserved to be heard, but not deserving enough for her alleged harasser to be canned? Pardon me for being a thorn in Hillary’s side, but wasn’t the woman who accused Strider of sexual harassment forced to sign a NDA? How is that part of “deserved to be heard” if her “silence was demanded”?
Her Hillaryness was so dismayed that someone was sexually harassed on her campaign she…didn’t fire the sexual harasser. She was so dismayed about what happened to this young woman, she didn’t call her for eight years. Hillary was so dismayed that this was exposed in The New York Times, she may have allowed herself to have an emotion. While her supporters attacked the female reporter. #Feminism
On Twitter in the last 24 hrs, conservatives are trying to discredit @maggieNYT's Trump scoop by saying she's a Clinton lackey and liberals are trying to discredit her Clinton scoop by saying she's a Trump lackey.
I have an alternate explanation for you guys…

The same reporter, mind you, many of them praised the day before for a “Trump wants to fire Mueller” story. Tribalism is a hell of a drug. Hillary loyalists need a methadone clinic.
Hillary should have her aides lay off of her Twitter account. Enjoy retirement with Bill. And whomever he brings home. Then maybe remove “feminist” from Hillary’s CV.
