Wife of top Trump aide had radio show where she said women in military should expect sexual harassment

(CNN) - Darla Shine, the wife of new White House deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine, hosted a radio show in the late 2000s where she once mocked victims of sexual harassment in the military and repeatedly pushed fringe conspiracy theories about vaccines.

CNN's KFile reviewed hours of audio from Darla Shine's radio program after her controversial views came to light. Shine, who long maintained a blog called "Happy Housewives Club" where she featured recipes and tips for cleaning and budgeting and promoted her radio show and book, has faced scrutiny in recent days after Mediaite and Huffington Post reported she had made racially charged comments and spread baseless anti-vaccination conspiracy theories on her now-deleted Twitter account.

Shine pushed her controversial views to a much wider audience and in much more depth on the "Darla Shine Show," a radio broadcast she hosted on the Talk Radio Network in 2008 and 2009 that boasted syndication on 100 radio stations nationwide.

Speaking in August 2009, Shine declared herself a "sexist" and said women serving with men in the military should expect to be sexually harassed.

1. They should expect it?

Should offending male harassers "expect" to get shot in the balls the moment the women they molested are allowed to use live ammunition at target practice, too?

4. As a female veteran, I am beyond offended and appalled by this statement

Believe me, I never expected the amount, and different types of harassment I saw and experienced. I enlisted to serve the country, not to become a target for puerile, prurient male behavior. The toll forced me to make a decision about which is more important - serving the country or serving what was in my best interest - which was to not re-enlist.
