OPINION

JOHN BRUMMETT: One lucky dog

By John Brummett

This article was published June 7, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

Bill Clinton should be thankful his tomcat heyday occurred a quarter-century ago. He should stay blissfully quiet about all that now, or, if necessary, say nothing beyond words of abject contrition.

I guess Brummett missed the NY Times interview that happened the next night in which Clinton did simply apologize for the incident and stated it was his darkest hour. We'll se how it's handled tonight in DC at the Warner Theater and Saturday at the Jack Stephens Center.

I agree he’s a lucky (hound) dog and should shut the heII up, but to suggest there’s a different standard today is simply not true. Trump is a serial philanderer and his base completely dismisses or denies it. I also don’t believe any of Clinton’s encounters were non-consensual. Broaddrick’s claims have been repeatedly discredited and denied even by herself. That’s not meant to dismiss his infidelity. I actually think had Hillary divorced him she would have fared far better politically.

Don't think so RBear, Brummett has probably forgotten more than you know about Clinton. Y'all can rail on Trump all you want in Clinton's defense and I agree Trump is a serial philanderer who does not respect women, however, he has not sexually harassed a White House intern yet, which would even be a new low for him.

Seriously, Jfish? He’s said he would have sex with his DAUGHTER if she weren’t his daughter, for crying out loud. Me thinks you’re desperately splitting hairs.

Sexually harassed a grown woman, who said she wasn't sexually harassed? This cuts both ways. Did he abuse his power? Maybe. Did she abuse her's? Maybe she was coming on to him constantly. No one really knows. What we do know is it was two adults that had a consensual affair. In the end, Clinton got in trouble for lying under oath about cheating on his wife. And the GOP is mad today because the Police are looking into all of Trumps connections to Russia and their interference? Wow. Hard to know what the F&^& a republican thinks is important now a days.
And rule number one. If asked if you cheated on your wife while on camera, you say No!!!! Until you tell your wife of course.

3WorldState..........."If asked if you cheated on your wife on camera , you say NO "

The difference is Bill Clinton was under OATH when he said NO.

Did you conveniently forget that or omit that on purpose ?

JFish totally out of context on your comment. Referring to the Times Talk interview conducted Tuesday night with the Times book editor and Patterson. The rest of your comment shows your ignorance on the subject.

Brummett nailed it. Clinton is guilty of sexual harassment by any standard. And his abuse of power would have gotten him fired, or demoted in any private business. Throw in the fact that he lied about it, and you have a disgraced president. Hillary Clinton stayed with Bill because without him she would be nothing, politically. Clinton is a lucky dog and his wife is a (in dog terms) B**ch.
