In an interview with Newsmax, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday continued to make hay out of former President Bill Clinton‘s sexual history.
“Yeah, I mean, a predator — a sexual predator, basically,” Paul said when asked for his thoughts on Clinton. “Repetitive.”
On NBC’s “Meet the Press” in January, Paul referred back to Clinton’s affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinksy. “He took advantage of a girl that was 20-years-old and an intern in his office.” For that, Paul said, Democrats who associate with Clinton cannot take the moral high ground on women’s rights.
“What if that unsavory character is your husband?” Paul said in the Newsmax interview, tying Clinton to his wife Hillary, a possible 2016 contender. “What if that unsavory character is Bill Clinton raising money for people across the country, and what if he were someone that was guilty of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior at the workplace — which, obviously, having sex with an intern at the office is inappropriate by any standard.”
