The woman who 20 years ago alleged former President Bill Clinton raped her when he was running for governor of Arkansas in 1978 is calling Hillary Clinton a hypocrite for putting out her new book about "gutsy women."
Co-authored by daughter Chelsea Clinton, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience celebrates women who fearlessly left their comfort zones to make a difference. Juanita Broaddrick chides the former first lady on social media for assuming to be a qualified judge of character.
Getting called out …
Even though tens of thousands give Hillary Clinton's tweet promoting her book a thumbs-up, many dissenters voiced their condemnation of the twice-failed Democratic president candidate – among them, her husband's vocal accuser.
"While the tweet was liked more than 33,000 times, there are a number of comments criticizing their message, including one from Juanita Broaddrick," Townhall reported.
Over the years, Broaddrick has been very gutsy in her criticism of both Bill and Hillary Clinton, and she did not hold back as the new book's October 1 release date approaches.
"Give me a d--- break, Hilly," Broaddrick tweeted Saturday in response to Clinton's promotional Twitter post. "You wouldn't know gutsy if it kicked you in the [posterior]. You've been shielded and protected all your life. Be assured, I will never give up telling the world about you and your rapist husband. I'm still here."
She was responding to the following tweet Clinton posted asking and answering her own question, which was followed by a video discourse given by her and her daughter.
"What does it mean to be a gutsy woman?" Clinton posed in her tweet Friday before giving the answer. "It's about never giving up – and working to pave the way for the next generation."
This was followed up with definitions presented by the two in the embedded video.
"[Gutsy women are those] who faced obstacles and kept going and they could see what a difference it might make in their own lives and even more broadly," Hillary asserted in the video. "We're in favor of people who are gusty not only because they want to achieve something, but because they want to pave the way for others who are going to come behind."
Her daughter echoed much the same in her own take.
"[Gusty means] having a clear sense of purpose and then having the perseverance and just the refusal to give up," Chelsea offered.
The publisher's online promotion of the book has Clinton describing the female role models of her life – ultimately alluding to her own bid to become the first woman to serve as president of the United States.
"Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home, so I looked to my mother, my teachers and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration," the former secretary of state is quoted on Simon & Schuster's website. "After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible."
Below that statement, Chelsea touts her mom as a modern-day American champion of women.
"This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little," the former first daughter is quoted. "For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers."
Wait a minute …
However, a few years back, Broaddrick released her own book, You Better Put Some Ice on That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton, portraying Hillary Clinton as anything but a hero. The book title is said to reflect what the former president said to Broaddrick after forcing himself upon her.
Broaddrick accuses Hillary of working as an attorney to slander Bill's alleged rape victims in order to discredit their testimonies and declare him as innocent.
According to one conservative journalist, Broaddrick's boldness in coming forward about her experience with the 42nd president earns her a place in Hillary's book. "Seems pretty gutsy of her to come forward with that story," Townhall's Leah Barkoukis impressed.
More than 100 women's portraits are featured in Clinton's book, honoring their contributions to society in the midst of adversity, according to The Associated Press. A handful include lesbian entertainer Ellen DeGeneres, the teenage European climate-change activist Greta Thunberg, and scientist Marie Curie, plus friends and family members Clinton regards as heroines.
Another woman Clinton has praised in recent years is Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger, whom she applauds for advancing women's "reproductive rights." In 2014, the former first lady received Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Award for her contribution to abortion "rights" in America.
Commenting recently on Sen. Bernie Sanders' "population control" agenda, complete with abortion and euthanasia, Dr. Alveda King, Jr. – Dr. Martin Luther King's niece – quoted Sanger's plan to forward Planned Parenthood's racist infanticide within black communities.
"Colored people are like weeds that need to be exterminated," Sanger argued, as quoted by King. "We don't want that word to get out, so let's get some of their ministers on our side, and they can keep the more rebellious ones – in other words, the ones who can think – in line.'"
