The Enduring Awfulness of Hillary Clinton

Yesterday the New York Times reported that Hillary Clinton allegedly “chose to shield” a “top adviser” from sexual harassment allegations. The story itself is rather simple. A woman accused her faith adviser, a man by the name of Burns Strider, of sexual harassment. After a “brief” investigation, her campaign manager recommended that he be terminated. Clinton refused to fire him and instead docked his pay and ordered him to attend counseling. His victim was reassigned. 

In 2016 Strider joined a different part of the Clinton-industrial complex, a pro-Clinton organization called Correct the Record, where he was fired for, yes, harassing a female subordinate. 

How does Hillary respond to the Times story? With this absurd tweet:

And to think, there are members of the #resistance who still think they were on the side of the angels in 2016. Nothing could be further from the truth.
