Coulter Revives Decades Old Smear, Compares Bill Clinton To "Rapists"
Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF
In a May 19 Human Events op-ed titled, "To Liberals, Every Woman Looks Like a Hotel Maid," Ann Coulter compared former President Bill Clinton to "rapists," alleged statutory rapists and alleged sexual predators. Fox Nation promoted Coulter's column in a May 19 post. From the op-ed:
Only in Hollywood movies are handsome lacrosse players from nice families seen as likely rapists. In real life, they look more like the 5-foot-2-inch Roman Polanski or pudgy, unathletic Bill Clinton -- or the homunculus 5-foot-2-inch Strauss-Kahn.
Coulter has previously pushed the falsehood that Bill Clinton is a rapist, as have various other right-wing media contributors.
