An Example Of Sleaze & Hypocrisy In Today's Politics

It's now mid-October 2106 and we are nearing the election of our next US president.

As seems to be typical of today's politics, the stories enjoying the most coverage deal not with policy, as one might hope, but rather with sleaze and hypocrisy.

The latest involves the accusation by a woman that Trump raped her when she was 13 years old.

The supposed incident occurred some 22 years ago. The woman filed a civil suit in California on this issue back in May of this year. That was thrown out of court. She then refilled the same suit in New York in June.

I always have an issue with complaints, of any kind, filed decades after an incident. One should always look to the motive(s) for the delay. Well, in this case it seems fairly obvious. Trump is running for president.

But, there is more. Two men are behind this woman's coming forward. Both have a severe hate for Trump. This linked story is interesting. And, it seems, this woman is being (or was supposed to be) paid for filing the complaint.

I, of course, have no idea what really happened back in 1994 re: this incident. However, the media's coverage of it is a bit hypocritical.

The man who is a co-defendant in the civil suit is Jeffrey Epstein. Who is he? He is a billionaire, a convicted pedophile, and is infamous for his "sex parties" back in the 90s. He, also, was a prime contributor to the founding of the Clinton Foundation. Bill Clinton was a frequent "guest" of Epstein's "parties.

Does the media cover the fact that the Clintons have a cozy relationship with Epstein or the fact that Bill Clinton was a frequent "guest" of Epstein? Of course not. This does NOT mean that 2 wrongs, if there were any, make a right. It merely points out the media bias against Trump and for Hillary Clinton.
