As Twitchy reported, Donald Trump invited some special guests to his second debate with Hillary Clinton, though debate officials reportedly wouldn’t allow Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, and Kathleen Willey to be seated in his VIP box, relegating them to the front row instead.
Despite Hillary’s insistence that victims of sexual assault be heard and believed, the three women are still referred to collectively only as Bill Clinton’s accusers. Asked about Trump’s decision to bring up (a very small portion of) his scandal-ridden past during the debate, Bill Clinton admitted to reporters in Iowa that he’s “beyond being moved or surprised.”

"I’m beyond being moved or surprised” by Trump, Bill Clinton tells reporters in Ames after being asked about Trump's recent attacks on him

That doesn’t sound very compassionate, though President Clinton did confess to feeling bad for the participants in the town hall who were waiting patiently to ask questions about issues they really care about — whatever Clinton did in the past doesn’t affect their lives, apparently, so why should they care any more than he does at this point?
Funny, though, that Clinton didn’t complain about Anderson Cooper confronting Trump after his very first answer by asking, “You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?” At least one person there cared about sexual assault, if rather selectively.

So, not only is Bill Clinton beyond being moved — he has been for a long time. If he can get over it, his accusers ought to as well, right?

They don’t call him Slick Willie for nothing. That is why they call him Slick Willie, right?

He did say he was proud of his wife, calling her “calm, relaxed, and focused on other people,” though the photo of Bill and Chelsea doing their best at the debate to focus on anything but certain other people really says it all. If they can avert their eyes, shouldn’t Americans follow their lead?
