Vice President Harris is being slammed over her decision to appear with former President Clinton for a Clinton Foundation event focused on empowering women amid the Covid-19 pandemic, given Clinton’s alleged history of sexual abuse.
The Clinton Global Initiative event will take place on Friday and will be hosted by Howard University, of which Harris is an alumni.
A press release promotes it as “a one-on-one conversation” between Harris and Clinton “on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, and empowering women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.”
After news of the event circulated Tuesday, social media lit up with reactions to Harris’ choice — particularly as the first female vice president — to appear alongside a man accused by Paula Jones in 1991 of sexual harassment and of rape by Juanita Broaddrick in 1978.
Clinton has denied both claims, and both women have stood by their stories for decades.
Two other women, Kathleen Willey and Leslie Millwee, have also accused the 42nd president of sexual assault, both of which Clinton has also denied.
What he no longer denies is his affair with Monica Lewinsky, which lasted from 1995 to 1996, while she was a White House intern and he was leader of the free world.
In response to news of Harris’ appearance with Clinton, Broaddrick tweeted her shock, asking, “Is this a f–king joke? This pervert,” she began, “who raped me…is going to talk about empowering women.”
“Inviting Bill Clinton to speak on Empowering women,” Broaddrick then wrote on Wednesday afternoon, “is like asking Jeffrey Dahmer to host a cooking class,” she continued, referencing the noted serial killer.
Broaddrick was not the only woman to express her outrage.
One of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking victims hit out at Vice President Harris for planning to take part in a women’s empowerment seminar with former President Bill Clinton, a onetime pal of the convicted pedophile.
“Wow!! She’s asking Clinton how to empower women???” Virginia Giuffre tweeted on Wednesday, “Wrong person, what she should be asking him is what the hell was Clinton doing on #Epstein island & private jets 27 TIMES!”
Clinton has faced considerable scrutiny over his years-long association with Epstein and his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
While he denies any involvement in or knowledge of the pair’s horrific sex crimes, it is widely understood that Clinton maintained his friendship with at least Maxwell as recently as 2014, years after Epstein’s pedophilia became public.
Like Broaddrick, Millwee was appalled at Harris’ decision to sit with the former president, telling the Daily Caller in an interview Wednesday that she could not think of anyone more “ill suited” to discuss women’s empowerment.
“He is going to get up on a stage and tell us about how to be empowered? I truly can’t think of anything more brazen. I think this goes to show you the political power that the Clintons still have,” she noted to the outlet.
“It goes back a lot to partisan politics and I hate to keep bringing that up, but I think that’s crux of it. It’s brazen. This man has gotten by with so much in the last 50 or 60 years. And I think it goes back to a power entitlement. He feels like he can do whatever he wants. Nothing’s going to get in this way, and he’s going to bulldoze his way through anything he wants to.”
A spokesperson for Harris did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
