Grabbing and kissing certainly, not grabbing pussy. And since the me too business there's a much lower threshold for what's considered assault - which is what Clinton was trying to point out. What was once a major pass - moving on her like a bitch is today assault.

Or, it's ALWAYS been assault, it just hasn't been acknowledged as such until today. I guess we could consider ourselves lucky, it took an entire civil war to acknowledge slavery was fucked up, and there are still jackholes that defend it - loudly - to this day.

So wait, you're now suggesting that despite decades of insistence to the contrary, by the standards of the day, what Bill Clinton did to women was not "sexual misconduct" and thus he deserves the same pass as you're granting to Donald Trump?

I still don't get how Bill Clinton having a consensual affair is in any way the same as Trump who, by his own admission, forced sexual contact on women because he was a "star".

I don't put Trump's many affairs with people like Stormy Daniels in the same category as his moving "on her like a bitch" and casual bragging about grabbing women by the pussy...

*sigh* No, that's not what I suggested or said.

You are so very tiresome. Can't come up with any intelligent debate, post a stupid pic or bring up race.

Clinton/Patterson book was not written yesterday. They decided to collaborate and did not know the time of completion or tour. It happened when it happened.
