Pick & Choose Battles

bill clinton did some cool shit! it’s true. but he was also pretty fucked up and if you wanna chat about men of power getting away with shit, then he shouldn’t be left out of the conversation. just saying. he had our society hate lewinsky. you realize this yes? i’ll put it to y’all this way: three fucking days after he testified to a grand jury that he didn’t boff monica, he bombed a sudanese aspirin factory. they claimed at the time it was where bin laden was “working on nerve gas”. it wasn’t. it was a civilian target. civilians died. and for what? to distract society. to pull focus from his testimony and her appearance in court, to bombing the bad guys. and as much as i do find bill clinton entertaining and smart, to answer hillary’s question of her aptly titled, “What Happened?”, what happened was you ultimately lost because of your husbsnd’s “legacy”. i still contest she should have left him right after she allegedly smashed the bedside lamp upside his head! then, i think she would have won. instead, around the time of this bombing and the grand jury trial, the monica shaming started. “i did not have sexual relations with that woman.” hillary, being a politician herself, decided to stand by her man and blame the other woman. the mistress. how fancy! hillary then blamed herself in the process, saying she believes she perhaps wasn’t giving bill what he needed emotionally. monica lewinsky was 21 years old at the time. “the girl the president came on”. “the blue dress”.

see, truth is-bill clinton is just as ambitious and just as narcissistic as frump is. as most of them are. but because he and guys like jfk are charming and handsome, they kinda get a pass. fat harvey and gross frump don’t. we pick and choose our battles. we decide which crimes are worse. who should serve a harsher takedown despite committing the same fucking heinous acts. bill cosby is still going. new trial coming up. simpson is walking around town. clinton is writing book reviews for the ny times and lecturing. as if he never deregulated wall street, didn’t “slut-shame” his intern and didn’t intentionally murder innocent sudanese civilians to draw attention away from his penis. elijah wood comes out with others like corey feldman, admitting hollywood has a pedophilia problem, and no one does a god damn thing. no one’s like, “holy shit! children are being molested in hollywood?!?!” no one. there’s a modern day slavery issue in which our nation has over 50K slaves, and no one bats a fucking eyelash. we pick and choose our battles. shame on what our society has morphed into and shame on what it’s always been.
