Suddenly Hillary Clinton is the shocked and disgusted prude? How clownish can this all get?

As the RNC circles the wagons, redirecting campaign funds from Donald Trump to down-ticket candidates, Hillary Clinton wants America to know how shocked she is by the audio of Donald Trump that her campaign released two days before tonight’s second presidential debate.

Ever since the decade-old sound bite of the real estate mogul talking about his sexual conquests was made public Friday afternoon, Clinton’s tweets have dripped with stern, school marm shock and opprobrium.

As Clinton rides her high horse into the sunset of this ugly campaign, she clearly has the upper hand. Even if Trump were a gifted orator, no amount of sweet-talking would persuade the American electorate — including members of his own party — to place his locker room banter in its proper perspective.

That would include tweets by another woman who has had sexual relations with Hillary’s husband during the Clintons’ marriage. That woman is Juanita Broaddrick, who yesterday reminded the Twittersphere:

Broaddrick has sworn that Hillary Clinton confronted her in an attempt to intimidate and silence her after President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her in a Little Rock hotel in 1978.

Another of Bill Clinton’s sexual conquests, Paula Jones, took to social media as well yesterday, posting on her Facebook page:

So Donald Trump had to apologize about the woman comments. I don’t recall that Bill or Hillary has apologized to me and Juanita Broaddrick or Kathleen Willey yet Bill was getting his wee wee sucked under the Oval Office desk and still won a second term, UNBELIEVABLE! No liberal ever questioned his ability to run our country then, why NOW with Trump..???? Two faced hypercritical liberals!

Maybe the Clintons believe that the $850,000 they paid to Jones, an Arkansas state employee, to settle her sexual harassment lawsuit was apology enough. Whatever the case, Hillary Clinton is running as the voice of women wronged.

What an unfunny joke Hillary Clinton has become.
