You mean Hillary Clinton is a flaming, faux-feminist hypocrite? Who’d’a thunk?
It's not like Hillary to defend someone like this. https://t.co/RfRJholel6

I find it hard to believe Hillary Clinton would stand by and protect someone accused of sexually harassing a young subordinate.

Come on. We all know Hillary Clinton would never help protect a powerful man or political ally accused of sexual harassment from the consequences of his actions.

More from the New York Times:
A senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clinton’s request, according to four people familiar with what took place.
Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.
The complaint against Mr. Strider was made by a 30-year-old woman who shared an office with him. She told a campaign official that Mr. Strider had rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead and sent her a string of suggestive emails, including at least one during the night, according to three former campaign officials familiar with what took place.
The complaint was taken to [Patti Solis Doyle], the campaign manager, who approached Mrs. Clinton and urged that Mr. Strider, who was married at the time, be fired, according to the officials familiar with what took place. Mrs. Clinton said she did not want to, and instead he remained on her staff.
Raise your hand if you’re remotely surprised by this. Go on … we’ll wait.

This might be the least surprising thing I've ever heard about Hillary Clinton. https://t.co/mqHeAEgsCu

Those of you who have long suspected that Bill Clinton wasn’t her first rodeo, give yourselves a big hand.
Hasn't she been doing this since 1975? https://t.co/kNpVq0jy04

And this is different from the 1990s how? https://t.co/BuXqEYkOx6

This comes as zero surprise to anyone who lived through the 90s. https://t.co/tzk8HZeFlx

Well, at least this didn’t come out until after her presidential campaigns, right?
Shocking that the Clintons would coverup something!!!
It's like breathing to them.

That said…This is old news for Hillary, right?
She is the national expert in cover ups! https://t.co/vnHbPlkvdl

Sticking to what she does best: Defending men who prey on women.
Hillary Clinton Chose to Shield a Top Adviser Accused of Harassment in 2008 https://t.co/yvLFZJDnJr

Running interference for prominent harassers and perverts is kind of Hillary's thing. You might even say she and her team wrote the playbook on how to do it. https://t.co/HTgwGMzF1h
— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) January 26, 2018
It would be a major break from tradition if Hillary *didn't* shield someone from sexual misconduct charges. This one's dog-bites-man
— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) January 26, 2018
Hillary fights for women, except for when she lets an advisor accused of harassment stay on her team. https://t.co/pswqCOTN3e
