In an interview with Reason magazine’s Nick Gillespie, feminist and professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia Camille Paglia took aim at Bill and Hillary Clinton, as Hillary Clinton is believed to be set to embark on a run for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
Paglia described the former secretary of state as a “mess” and took aim at her for enabling her husband.
“[H]illary does not have it,” Paglia said. “Hillary is a mess. And we’re going to reward the presidency to a woman who’s enabled the depredations and exploitation of women by that cornpone husband of hers? The way feminists have spoken makes us blind to Hillary’s record of trashing [women]. They were going to try to destroy Monica Lewinsky. It’s a scandal. Anyone who believe in sexual harassment guidelines should have seen that the disparity of power between Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was one of the most grotesque ever in the history of sex crime. He’s a sex criminal. We’re going to put that guy back in the White House? Hillary’s ridden on his coattails. This is not a woman who has her own career, who’s made her own career! The woman who failed the bar exam in Washington. The only reason she went to Arkansas and got a job in the Rose law firm was because her husband was a politician.”
