“Comedian” Chelsea Handler — known far more for her left-wing politics than for anything funny — shocked and awed the Twitterverse recently with an apology to the oft-maligned woman who accused Bill Clinton of rape.
Juanita Broaddrick alleged in 1999 that former president Bill Clinton raped her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978 when Clinton was Attorney General of Arkansas. Rumors of Broaddrick’s ordeal circulated for years, yet she refused to speak publicly about it until a Dateline NBC interview, seven years after Clinton’s second term in the Oval Office. The left-wing network refused to release the interview until Clinton was acquitted by the United States Senate of obstruction of justice and perjury.
Since Broaddrick’s revelation, those on the Left have repeatedly dismissed and derided her. But when a conservative is accused of sexual impropriety, different rules apply. To that end, Chelsea Handler posted a November 12th tweet about claims against Alabama Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore:
“Imagine being molested by an older man. Then that man denies ever doing it and then goes on and gets elected to United States senate. What kind of message does that send to young girls everywhere? And men to all the men who abuse women?”
Surely much to the entertainer's surprise, Broaddrick responded within a few hours to Handler’s post, writing, “Yeah…I can imagine. I was raped by the Arkansas AG who then becomes Governor & President and NBC held my interview explaining the rape until after his impeachment hearing. But I'm sure you don't want to go there.”
Incredibly, on November 15th, Handler did what the Left seems to never do: she apologized. And even more shocking was her statement that she believes Broaddrick.
Broaddrick wrote something she likely hasn't had many opportunities to say to a Democrat: Thank you.
