On a day when Hillary Rodham Clinton is winning headlines for calling President Trump a "creep" in excerpts of her upcoming book released to MSNBC, another book set for release next week said she put up with Bill Clinton's creepy groping of women.
Biographer Craig Shirley, who's written several authoritative histories on former President Ronald Reagan, poured over Clinton's womanizing and its impact on his early presidency in his latest book about former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Citizen Newt, the Making of a Reagan Conservative....
"Everybody knew somebody who had a story about Clinton grabbing or groping a woman," Shirley wrote in Citizen Newt, provided to Secrets in advance of its August 29 release.
"The astonishing thing was not just that he got away with it, repeatedly, without being sued, but that Hillary put up with it, as did the American people. But Clinton had perfected the talent of ‘getting away with it' since his childhood. He could, as they say, charm the pants off of you. Or her," he penned on page 357 of the book published by Thomas Nelson Press, a branch of HarperCollins Christian Publishing Inc.
He referenced an American Spectator story about how Arkansas troopers "essentially acted as pimps for Clinton," and how, according to Time, the then-Arkansas governor would sometimes return home to an angry wife who would just yell.
Wrote Shirley: "Time magazine called him a ‘reckless, obsessive womanizer.' If Hillary was awakened in the wee hours by her glandular husband, according to Time's report, she would greet him with a ‘mouthful of four-letter words.'"...
