Pot, meet kettle. Former president Bill Clinton has hit the campaign trail hard on behalf of his wife, jonesing for another term or two in the White House.

In New Hampshire on Sunday, the former president launched an attack on Hillary’s lone rival, Bernie Sanders, on multiple fronts. One of the topics he touched upon was — remarkably — the “Bernie Bro” (see also “Berniebro”) phenomenon. For the uninitiated, that term is used derogatorily to describe a loose-knit group of male supporters of the Vermont socialist who have attacked Hillary supporters for “voting with their vagina” and called them “bitches.”

Apart from the fact that Sanders has urged the Bernie Bros to tone down their rhetoric, even distancing himself from a group of potential voters, Bubba has little room to talk, considering his own well-known history as a womanizer and an accused rapist. How rich to hear Clinton castigate other men for being “too profane — not to mention sexist — to repeat.”

To add irony to insult, Kathleen Willey, a former White House volunteer who says Clinton groped her in an Oval Office hallway in 1993, announced her intention to work for an anti-Clinton political group.
