9. Then explain how it clarifies a topic.

Par exemplo:

Statement: Trump raped E. Jean Carroll in the restroom of a Bergdorf Goodman.

Whataboutism: Well, Bill Clinton raped Juanita Brodderick.

Implication: Dems are hypocrites, they only care about rape when it's a Republic that does it. Therefore, it does not matter that the sitting POTUS is credibly accused of rape.

How does the whataboutism of Bill Clinton's actions "clarify" Trump's rape accusation?
