Hillary Clinton has tried to build a name for herself as a feminist icon who is a “warrior for women.” That’s why it came as devastating news to her this week when Linda Tripp, the woman who exposed Bill Clinton’s affair with intern Monica Lewinsky, spoke out to say that Hillary is anything but what she claims.
Daily Mail reported that Tripp spoke out to slam the Clintons, saying that Bill is a sexual predator and that Hillary is a “destroyer of women” who will take down any female that gets in her way. She added that giving Bill a “pass” for his behavior 20 years ago brought us to where we are today.
“They are completely unscrupulous. There are no rules, no laws that apply to them,” Tripp said of the Clintons. She added that we “dodged a bullet” when Hillary lost to Donald Trump.
“I think the most hurtful thing for me to watch during the campaign was [that] she touted herself as a champion of women. She is a destroyer of women should they get in her way,” Tripp said.
Tripp said she is still haunted by the things she saw in the Clinton White House.
“What I saw for two years is nothing the American people could have fathomed. Most politicians speak with forked tongues but this was something quite different. There are no rules, no laws that apply to them,” Tripp said. “I think by nature Bill Clinton would turn the other cheek knowing as he does what his role was with these women. But Hillary’s role was that she said, ‘We’ll just have to destroy them,’ and she means it.”
She explained that she “underestimated” the Clintons and, “the power of a joined force.”
“I don’t pretend to know the inner workings of that marriage. I can only say it was a marriage the likes of which I had never seen,” Tripp said. “When he was in the doghouse, which was routinely, she became stronger. And with that strength came power. She was able to act as the de facto President until his behavior improved.”
Tripp also held nothing back while talking about Bill.
“To me he is a predator and always will be a predator,” she said. “He sees women as a sort of enormous smorgasbord…and he takes what he wants and it’s something to which he feels entitled. He was the leader of the free world and she was an intern, a kid, who happened to be extremely emotionally young for her age. To them it was presented as a) it didn’t happen and b) if it did happen it was consensual and nobody’s business.”
“We should have had this dialogue then and I think a lot of things would have been different in the ensuing years,” Tripp continued. “The congressmen, all of the folks you are hearing about now with women coming out so many years later makes you realize that when the President gets a pass for something that egregious, he essentially gave tacit permission to all those who followed to do the same.”
