On December 19, 1998, the House of Representatives initiated articles of impeachment against then President Bill Clinton. The impeachment stemmed from Clinton’s lying about his adulterous affair with Paula Jones.
At the time and throughout the entire impeachment proceedings, the mainstream media fully supported Clinton and all of his actions. They exonerated him over the charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, which Clinton was acquitted of by the Senate on February 12, 1999.
During all of the impeachment proceedings, it was revealed the Bill Clinton had affairs with both Paula Jones and Monica Lewinski and possible other women. It was revealed that Clinton and Lewinski even had oral sex in the Oval Office.
Remember the infamous discourse between Bill Clinton and Kenneth Starr, when Starr asked Clinton if there was anything going on between him and Lewinski? Clinton stated:
“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the–if he–if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not–that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement….Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”
Through the entire Bill Clinton debacle, the mainstream media continually defended Clinton and his adulterous actions. A number of media networks kept saying that Clinton’s personal sex life should have no bearing on his ability to serve as president. They did their best to exonerate Clinton of any wrong doing.
These same mainstream media outlets that claimed that Bill Clinton’s personal sex life was none of our business, are the very same mainstream media outlets that are doing their best to crucify Donald Trump and nail him to a cross of over an alleged sexual affair that supposedly took place nearly 12 years ago.
The New York Times posted Michael D. Cohen, Trump’s Longtime Lawyer, Says He Paid Stormy Daniels Out of His Own Pocket.
Business Insider posted Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit against Trump reveals new details about their alleged affair.
Chicago Tribune posted Porn star Stormy Daniels sues Trump, says hush agreement is null because he didn’t sign it.
These are only a few of the many mainstream headlines pursuing this story of an alleged affair and subsequent payoff. Since there has yet been any evidence to prove collusion between Trump and Russia after 9 months of investigation, the school of media piranha have moved to a fresh carcass and they will continue to feed on it until they have either totally destroyed Donald Trump and his presidency or until it proves to be nothing.
It should also be noted that there were many allegations of President John F Kennedy having sexual affairs, including when he was president. One of those affairs has been alleged between him and Marilyn Monroe, but once again, the media did their job in protecting a Democrat like they did with Bill Clinton, but they are ready to sink the dagger of wrong doing deep into Trump.
