My thoughts on the Clinton affair: Linda Tripp is the one who caused most trauma to Monica.

Linda Tripp, befriended her, used her to get at BC. Linda Tripp called the FBI and set the trap for Monica to be questioned by them. This is what had her so frightened. The media has and will continue to give Linda Tripp and Ken Star a pass in this entire sorry affair. I don't believe that Bill or Hillary went after Monica.

Hillary making comments as any other woman might have about an extramarital affair by her husband was not unusual.
Hillary was criticized for "staying" with Bill but who are we to judge the toll the entire incident took on their lives and family relationships. It will all be chalked up to "political ambition" that they stayed together...but I look at their lovely daughter and think otherwise. You can absolutely love your spouse and still be either the victim or perpetrator of an affair...speaking as one on both sides of the spectrum.

Trump, however, has been accused of sexually preying on minors and inappropriately sexually touching women without consent. That's not the same thing as consenting adults. I don't care if he has affairs with consenting women. If the women want to blab to the media or write a book about it, that's his problem.

Bill is a far cry from a russian who cheated his whole life. His affairs point to his pattern of other wrong doing. Therefore, in my mind, relevant to the issue. Bill cares about his country first. Monica wasn't 'paid off' until she endlessly played the victim for her own choice. Linda Tripp certainly was the problem. Pres B Clinton got a female version of R Stone'd...L Tripp.
Neither of them were good, but, there's a big difference. Pres B Clinton is my hero. The 90s were good to me. He did a LOT for this country. The russian, has decimated our honor. Big big difference.
Plus Bill had the balls enough to go under oath. Unlike any Bush, Cheney, Red Ivan trum, or anyone else. I gotta hand it to him for that.

That woman did not violate any covenant with the wife, the husband did that. There was no covenant between the two women. The covenant was between the man and his wife, and the man broke it. The wife's anger should be directed at the husband who violated her trust, not at the woman he did it with.

The "other woman" is certainly not the wife's friend, but nor is she the one who wronged the wife. She had no duty to the wife, and therefor violated none.

The "other woman" had a duty to society, a duty to respect boundaries, and certainly should suffer some disrespect from all of us as a result of failing to follow that duty.

The double standard is amazing. When a woman is "molested" by an employer it is never in any degree her fault, not even one percent. She is 100% a victim in the affair.

But another affair, the woman is at fault. She set out to seduce the guy and he, who in the other case was all-powerful and totally controlling the woman, in in this case so weak and controlled by the woman that he is unable to remain faithful to his wife.

So sometimes it's one way, sometimes it's the other. It doesn't depend on the degree of power, either, because in this case the guy who was victimized by the evil Monica was the President of The United States of America. It depends on who's telling it and who we like or don't like, in which the whole subject loses any trace of credibility.

It's up to the married person to NOT have the affair. That's what being married is about.

That line of thinking that it's somehow the (in this case) other womans responsibility for the mans actions is what gives us the chaparone rule of the pense marriage, and making women wear black bags over their bodies so that men won't be tempted.

It's lazy and dangerous to place responsibility for anyones actions on anyone other than that person.

stealing isn't wrong because that's putting the responsibility on a person because someone else decided to own something.

There's no way around it. If a person knows someone is married and sleep with them anyway, they're knowingly doing something that they know could blow up other people's lives and cause them great pain and disruption.

It was within his power to prevent the investigation, end the investigation, or at least to call off his loyalists who demonized her on his behalf. He didn't. She acknowledges her part when she has talked about how horrible the aftermath was for her. I agree. He is 100% responsible for getting caught in his own foolish power drunk antics as well as for the abuse she suffered.

the RW bubble who embraced a racist, sexist, bigot, adulterer to lead their party

Not Hillary's job to coddle her or Linda's job to do whatever. Lewinski was a grown ass woman in her twenties making her own adult choices regardless of the poor choices they were. They are her choices and only hers.
