Juanita Broaddrick who accused Bill Clinton of rape boycotts Hillary docu: ‘To watch that woman talk is torture’
Broaddrick had alleged that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 and Hillary spent several decades covering it up. 'I can't watch it. I'll see clips of it probably from Twitter or Facebook but to watch that woman talk is torture'
The upcoming documentary about Hillary Clinton might have several eager takers, but there is one person who has sworn to never watch it — Juanita Broaddrick, who has vowed to boycott the Hulu documentary.
Broaddrick had alleged that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 and Hillary spent several decades covering it up. "I can't watch it. I'll see clips of it probably from Twitter or Facebook or something like that but to watch that woman talk is torture," the former nurse told the New York Post.
"I guess it is because I have so many feelings about her as being a fake person, a fake feminist and knowing what she did to all of the victims of her husband," she said.
Hulu's four-part documentary 'Hillary' explores Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky and Hillary's decision to stick by her husband through the ordeal and the following impeachment.
Broaddrick first met the then-31-year-old Clinton when she was 35 and working as a nursing home administrator in Van Buren, Arkansas.
Clinton at the time was paying a visit during his first campaign for governor in 1978. She became a fan and a campaign volunteer, and Clinton told her to call when she was in the capital.
A few weeks later, Broaddrick was in Little Rock for a conference when she suggested they meet for coffee in her hotel lobby. However, when Clinton arrived, he insisted they go to her room to avoid journalists, she had claimed.
And then he attacked her. In her 1999 'Dateline' interview, she first recounted the horrific incident. "He turned me around and started kissing me, and that was a real shock. I first pushed him away. I just told him, 'No, please don't do that'."
"He tries to kiss me again, and the second time he tries to kiss me, he starts biting on my lip. And then he forced me down to the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him, 'No'. He wouldn't listen to me."
The incident left Broaddrick traumatized, who later recalled that she was "a walking zombie for months" and that she couldn't even do her job properly. "I could hardly believe what had happened to me."
Although Clinton has been denying the attack ever took place in the first place and has not acknowledged it since 1999, Broaddrick strongly believes that Hillary knew about the attack and has been covering the incident.
Broaddrick recalls the strong words that Hillary had shared with her shortly afterward at a fundraiser. "She comes straight over to me and as she is walking toward me... takes ahold of my hand and says, 'I just want you to know how appreciative we are for everything you are doing for his campaign'."
This might read just normal but Broadderick recalls just how hurtful her words were. As she turned to leave, Hillary grabbed her by the arm and with an icy glare reiterated the point.
"Do you understand everything that you do?" Broaddrick said Hillary asked her. "It was hateful. I couldn't believe it. She knows."
Broaddrick's sex-abuse claims against Bill Clinton are the earliest known but she says that Hulu did not contact her or ask her to participate in the documentary.
