Leftist comedian, talk show host, and psychotically partisan keyboard warrior Chelsea Handler thought she had Republicans up against the ropes over Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
“Imagine being molested by an older man,” Handler tweeted about Moore on Sunday. “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?”
However, Handler’s gotcha moment was abruptly ruined by the sudden appearance of one Juanita Broaddrick, whom allegedly was raped by Bill Clinton.
@chelseahandler I can imagine,” Broaddrick tweeted back. “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.”
Handler didn’t respond to Broaddrick until Wednesday, claiming she hadn’t seen the tweet, nor did she know Broaddrick’s story — the one that has been all over articles about Clinton, and was even a centerpiece during one 2016 presidential debate — but Handler finished by telling Broaddrick she believed her.
I’m sorry I’m just seeing this, @atensnut. You are right and I apologize to you for not knowing your story. Democrats along with Republicans and the rest of the worlds’s political parties all need to do better and respect the firsthand accounts of victims. I believe you. https://t.co/VDIFmCvg7g

People have dismissed Broaddrick’s claims that Bill Clinton has raped her for a long time, but with the purge of sexual harassers and assaulters in full swing, and with Hillary Clinton having not won the Oval Office and Bill’s protection not required, Broaddrick’s claims are suddenly viable.
But as the Free Beacon points out, among those who were ready to dismiss Broaddrick’s claims before it became popular to point out sexual deviants…was Handler herself.
bill Clinton isn't running for office. Hillary is.

Handler’s sudden belief and indeed learning about Broaddrick’s claim rings amazingly hollow in the face of the political and social convenience of coming forward or standing up against men like Bill Clinton. While Handler is attempting to make herself look like a brave warrior standing up on behalf of all women, her sudden readiness to stand up to this evil only now makes her look like a partisan coward.
