HILLARY CLINTON BOTCHES HER #METOO MOMENT
Clinton had the chance to apologize for failing to protect her staffers from a sexual harasser. Instead, she buried her mea culpa in a late-night news dump.
When news broke last week that Hillary Clinton failed to fire a senior adviser from her 2008 presidential campaign after he was accused of sexual harassment—and that he continued to harass women in subsequent jobs—it was initially met with a two-tweet statement from the former secretary of state saying she had been “dismayed” when the incident occurred, and that she had reached out to the woman in question. For critics, this was insufficient: “How do you write a primal scream?” asked The Washington Post’s Ruth Marcus. So on Tuesday night, with the eyes of the world trained on Donald Trump, Clinton published a 1,500-word opus amending her response.“I very much understand the question I’m being asked as to why I let an employee on my 2008 campaign keep his job despite his inappropriate workplace behavior,” she wrote, adding, “The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t.” She went on to offer a lengthy explanation about why she declined to fire the adviser, Burns Strider, citing her attempts to discipline him, her desire to practice forgiveness, and her general aversion to firing people. “At the time, I believed the punishment I imposed was severe and fit the offense. Indeed, while we are revisiting whether my decision from a decade ago was harsh enough, many employers would be well served to take actions at least as severe when confronted with problems now—including the very media outlet that broke this story,” she added, alluding to The New York Times’ recent decision to reinstate Glenn Thrush after he was accused of repeated sexual harassment. Though supporters flooded her comments—“Why do you even need to defend this when we have a sexual offender in the White House and not a single Republican seems to care?” one wrote—the response on the left more closely resembled disappointment. “Her statement falls short as an apology, attempting to deflect attention onto others and failing to address some of the key issues in the case,” wrote Vox’s Anna North, while longtime supporter Alyssa Rosenberg declared that she was “done” with Clinton. “I believed that when confronted with allegations of sexual misconduct . . . that she would handle those accusations decisively and in a way that made clear that she was on the side of other women,” wrote Rosenberg, citing Clinton’s history of fighting for women’s rights. But when it came down to it, Rosenberg said, Clinton acted solely in her own self-interest: “I respect Clinton’s personal religious faith and the depth of her belief in forgiveness. What I can’t accept is the idea that forgiving Strider means minimizing the consequences he faced for his behavior, especially when doing so put him in a position to offend again.”
There was also the issue of timing: Clinton published her post just minutes before Trump took the podium to deliver his lengthy address to Congress. A Clinton aide told CNN that the move had not been engineered to deflect press, saying it was “simply when she finished writing it,” but to Clinton foes, it was a prime example of what they perceived as calculated cold-bloodedness. On a broader level, too, the timing was terrible—in the throes of the #MeToo movement, a misstep on the issue of sexual harassment cuts deeper than ever before.In the aftermath of her election loss, Clinton has positioned herself as a Trump antagonist, warning in her first major post-election speech last March that the president’s policies would “hurt people and take our country in the wrong direction.” She penned a ferocious book, toured the country, and inspired certain corners of the Internet to speculate as to her future political ambitions. But if Clinton was truly angling for a comeback, the Strider fumble might have snuffed out that possibility for good, particularly as a member of a party in the throes of its own frantic sexual harassment referendum.
