Steyn Rips Dems' Newfound 'Character': 'They All Knew What Bill Clinton Was Doing'
Author Mark Steyn said Democrats are being disingenuous when they - in the present day - call out President Clinton for misconduct he allegedly participated in several years ago.
Steyn said that, in the way the Democrats weren't worried about the Soviets during the Cold War, but waited 25 years to express outrage at Russia, that there was also a 25-year delay in their indignation toward Clinton.
Top Democrats like Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) and left-leaning media personalities like Mika Brzezinski criticized the Clintons in recent days.
Steyn noted how a recent mainstream media headline read "I Believe Juanita," referring to Juanita Broaddrick, a former nursing home administrator who says then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton (D) raped her.
He said he wrote the same post in February 1999.
"They all knew what Clinton was doing [back then]," he said of several allegations against Clinton of an untoward sexual nature.
"Why shouldn't Al Franken grope a woman? It's because the media told us it doesn't matter being a pig because character doesn't matter," he said of the sentiment during the Lewinsky scandal.
"They've got respected PBS anchors walking around naked, and I don't mean Big Bird," Steyn said of Charlie Rose, who has been accused of misconduct by as many as eight women.
Steyn also mentioned Hillary Clinton's claim that, if Fox News Channel existed during the entire Clinton years, that it would have caused her husband's administration some problems.
Steyn said that Clinton was basically saying that the media at the time was complacent with what was going on in the White House.
He said that a Sean Hannity Opening Monologue in 1992 would've thrown cold water on Clinton's victory-like speech after his loss to Sen. Paul Tsongas (D-Mass.) in the New Hampshire primary.
"[Hannity] would say Paul Tsongas was the winner in New Hampshire," Steyn said.
