While filling in for Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday, columnist and author Mark Steyn asked a pointed question: Why is Bill Cosby finished but not Bill Clinton? Steyn asked the question the day before prosecutors laid charges against Cosby for sexual assault.
“I mean that as a seriously question incidentally,” Steyn said. “Why is Bill Cosby finished? He was the most beloved guy. We keep hearing Bill Clinton is the most beloved guy in America. ‘If Bill Clinton was on the ticket, he’d sweep all 50 states. It would be a landslide. Americans love Bill Clinton.’ They loved Bill Cosby – nice grandfatherly Bill Cosby. But somehow, for whatever reason – you don’t see ‘The Bill Cosby Show’ on TV anymore. You don’t see it on the rerun channels. He is not appearing anywhere.”
“You’d almost think it’s some kind of like racism thing,” he continued. “That somehow, when a bunch of women make accusations against the black guy – boom, he’s vaporized. When a bunch of women make accusations against some white southern redneck — we're talking about putting him back in the White House for another eight years as first gentleman.”
Clinton has faced a long list of accusations over the years ranging from affairs to outright sexual assault but has never been charged nor pursued hard by the media. Bill Clinton has even been celebrated by women's groups - mainly due to his support for abortion.
