comparisons between Trump and Bill

When these journalists interview tRump's surrogates and those surrogates try to compare tRump to Bill something that I wish Clinton's surrogates would point out is that first of all Bill was never tried and convicted of those allegations. In fact, they were investigated and not found not credible by someone who was going after him, Ken Starr. I am not calling those women liars, but Bill is innocent until proven guilty,. I mean we could start calling tRUMP A CHILD MOLESTER because one of his accusers is a 13 year old, but without being proven we don't call him that. The only thing that was proven about Bill was the affair with Monica,----a consensual affair----- with someone old enough to give consent. The tape where we dubbed Trump a sexual predator was where he described non-consensual acts.

sexual assault, rape, abuse of power, etc., are all bad and condemnable things whether trump did it or bill did it.

but in trump's case, do we want a president who has pending litigation on such matters? who may be guilty of such things?

in bill's case, what's the point? perhaps he never would have been elected had we known such things, but it's rather late for that now.

are we really supposed to think hillary can't be president because her husband may have done some bad things?

Presidents and Congressman have bog libidos...no surprise. That seemed to hold for 200+ years. Then the rules changed. Suddenly the opposition party decided it was a moral outrage. Bob Livingstone and Newt Gingrich conducted a sexual wit hhunt that they themselves were enjoying. It is not the sex, it is the hypocrisy.

If the GOP continues to support Trump, it is like giving these religious groups, the middle finger.
It's very disrespectful and they need to realize this.
