We rag on liberals a lot around here — as you’re well aware — but that doesn’t mean we won’t give them credit where it’s due. And some credit should most definitely be given to “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who did what a lot of his fellow liberals have refused to do: Call out Hillary Clinton for her hypocrisy on victims of sexual predation.

More from Salon:
“Look, there’s a few areas where I don’t necessarily expect Hillary Clinton to nail it,” Noah continued, “managing emails, visiting Wisconsin, you know, weaknesses. But I won’t lie, I expected standing up for a woman on her staff to be one of her strengths. So the story is disturbing.”
Noah said it was puzzling that the woman was the one reassigned after coming forward with her accusations, essentially punishing her while the accused was shielded. “It’s possible that Hillary Clinton had a good explanation for why she kept this guy on over the objections of her top campaign advisers but instead of an explanation, all we got was this.”
“Yeah, ‘women deserve to be heard,’ and then quietly reassigned,” Noah said. “‘Thank you for speaking up — now into the closet.'”
“It feels like Hillary’s not only trying to dodge all the blame, she wants to present herself as having always been on this woman’s side, which doesn’t fly, because not only did the woman get reassigned, but this guy, Burns Strider, he went on to get another job in Democratic politics, where he got fired for doing the same thing to other women,” Noah said. “So you could argue that if Hillary had fired him, she would have been protecting many women, instead of just herself.”

Trevor Noah gets it. These people? Not so much:
We don’t actually know what was said in her call, so once again the critics attack HRC without the facts.

And the daily show continues the media obsession with smearing HRC.

Hillary's issue happened years ago. In the meantime, we have a sexual predator in the WH. FOCUS!

Yet again, let's hold Hillary accountable for the actions of men.
Her response went a step further than what was normal for 2008. Stop judging her harsher than her male colleagues & by today's standards – you don't watch Friends & criticize Joey for all the sexism, do you?

Turning you off. You just can't let go of your obsession with Hillary. By the way most of your "correspondents" are not funny.

A man is telling a woman that she is on the "wrong side" of #MeToo? Thanx for mansplaining, of course an American female former Secretary of State needs the advice of a male South African comedian.

Shut up, Trevor Noah. You've been on the wrong side of a lot of things…
But more importantly, you idiot, you are perpetuating a divide in the group of people fighting strongest to stop everything wrong with this country. Yes, HRC should be addressed – just not now.

No the part of the problem is people saying it's OK for Trump to do what he did and to keep doing it. Please don't blame her thsnks

Oh well. At least others aren’t tying themselves into knots to defend Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy:
One of the few times I’ll agree with this guy.

YES………I am so glad her called her out. She can not speak for women anymore.
— maurjoh15 (@maurjoh15) January 30, 2018
She never should’ve spoken for them in the first place.
