Former President Bill Clinton gave an interview on “CBS Sunday Morning” promoting his new book with author James Patterson, ironically entitled: “The President is Missing.” Clinton stated that Obama enjoyed better press coverage than other presidents partly because of his race.
Bill also admitted that the media favored Obama more than President Trump and “other Democrats and Republicans.” “They did treat him [Obama] differently than other Democrats and Republicans,” Clinton said in the interview. “It was the political press. “I don’t know. They liked him. And they liked having the first African-American president, and he was a good president I think. I don’t agree with President Trump’s assessment of his service,” Clinton explained.

He went on to say that a Democratic president would have already been impeached if faced with the same accusations as Trump. He seems to have forgotten that he himself was impeached. Clinton was referring to the more than year-long investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race. “I think if the roles were reversed — now it’s me just talking, but based on my experience — if there were a Democratic president and these facts were present, most people I know in Washington believe impeachment hearings would have begun already,” he said. You are kidding right? Obama was not impeached and he actually committed crimes.
Bill Clinton had his impeachment proceedings begin in 1998 after his inappropriate affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 22 year-old White House intern, was discovered. He had eleven grounds for impeachment, including perjury, obstruction of justice, witness-tampering and abuse of power. At the time, he was very confident he would not be impeached. “It wasn’t a pleasant experience,” Clinton said. “But it was a fight that I was glad to undertake after the elections, when the people had solidly told, by two-thirds or more, the Republicans to stop it. They knew there was nothing impeachable. And so we fought it to the end. And I’m glad.” What horse puckey.
He also spoke about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat. In November, Gillibrand told the New York Times that Bill should have resigned over his relationship with Lewinsky. “You have to really ignore what the context was,” Clinton said. “But you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different reasons. So, I — but I just disagree with her.” Gillibrand told the New York Times that it would have been appropriate for Clinton to step down over the extramarital affair. “But I think things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances, there should be a very different reaction,” Bill said.
Here’s the relevant exchange between CBS correspondent Mo Rocca and Bill Clinton:
ROCCA: You hear from Trump supporters who say, “You know, the press slobbered all over President Obama. He could do no wrong. And now this guy can do no right. What gives?” That there’s a kind of whiplash.
CLINTON: Well, they did treat him differently than other Democrats and Republicans because they –
CLINTON: It was the political press. You know, I don’t know. They liked him, and they liked having the first African American president – and he was a good president, I think.
Then Bill took aim directly at President Trump. “I don’t like all this. I couldn’t be elected to anything now because I just don’t like embarrassing people,” Clinton declared. “My mother would have whipped me five days in a row when I was a little boy if I spent all my time bad-mouthing people like this.” But cigars and an intern in the Oval Office made her proud? Sheesh. Hypocrisy so deep you need a shovel for it.
Then in true hypocritical fashion, Bill went on to badmouth people. “There’s a Trump supporter here in town that — I walked past his house with my dogs. He had a ‘Lock Her Up’ poster in his front window. And I said to him, ‘If you’re gonna do that to my wife, you make sure the prisons are comfortable. ‘Cause you’re gonna have a lot of company of your supporters in there.” Not so much, Bill. Your wife is guilty of a mountain of crimes and you aren’t far behind her.
Clinton championed decency, which is really rich coming from a Clinton: “And he said, ‘Obama and Hillary started the second Civil War.’ So, there’s division,” Clinton continued. “But underneath that, there’s a core of fundamental decency that can be really skewed when people feel abused, left out, or looked down on.” Well, the Democrats would know all about that as Hillary calls Trump’s supporters ‘a basket of deplorables’.
Talk about a cringeworthy interview from leftist unicorn land. But what do you expect from a guy who got lost in his local parade this year? Time to call it a life Billy and shame on James Patterson.

Can't be elected now because he might actually get kicked out of office for his impeachment.

No, you couldn't be elected for multiple reasons: 1.) Monica, 2.) You could bite the dust at any moment 3.) You've already been president, 4.) Your wife.
