President Donald Trump recently criticized those who are calling for the removal of statues memorializing Confederate figures such as Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Trump suggested that if people remove monuments to these men, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson could be next. Well, Trump may have been off by a couple hundred years, but another U.S. president’s statue has been called for removal: Bill Clinton.
Juanita Broaddrick said in an interview with The American Mirror that she wants to see the destruction of a Clinton statue located in Rapid City, South Dakota. Broaddrick famously alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978.
“I would like to ‘personally’ use a sledgehammer on it, with the help of Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones,” she said. Willey and Jones, of course, are two other women who have accused President Clinton of sexual misconduct.
Jones also expressed displeasure with the statue, posting Wednesday on Facebook that she is offended by it.
Liberals have blasted those who wish to continue memorializing Confederate figures, as they owned slaves and fought against the Union with the hopes to maintain that practice. Broaddrick points out that liberals themselves have overlooked the misdeeds of Clinton, who they continue to admire.
“I don’t think it would be in their best interest (to acknowledge them), even though they know Bill Clinton is abhorrent and morally deficient, to say the least,” Broaddrick said.
