Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) accused former President Bill Clinton of “predatory behavior” Sunday in an interview on “Meet the Press.”
“I think, really, the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this,” Paul said. “He took advantage of a girl that was 20-years-old and an intern in his office.”
“There is no excuse for that and that is predatory behavior and … we shouldn’t want to associate with people who would take advantage of a young girl in his office,” he continued. “This isn’t having an affair … someone who takes advantage of a young girl in their office.”

“I mean, really? And then they have the gall to stand up and say ‘Republicans are having a war on women?'” Paul concluded.
The characterization came in response to comments Paul’s wife, Kelley, made during an interview with Vogue magazine, in which she also said Clinton’s behavior “was predatory” and “offensive to women.”
