Democrat partisan with his own TV show, Chris Matthews, is shocked, shocked, to find that Donald Trump would accuse Hillary of being an enabler of Bill Clinton's sexual crimes.
So let's get in the Way Back Machine and look at what was said at the times Hillary was covering up for Bill.
-- "There's a risk -- the risk is that (Hillary) gets out there even further in saying nothing happened, and then (President Clinton) has to announce on national television in two weeks ... 'I've been lying to her,' or, 'She's been cooperating with me in a conspiracy.' Which is worse?" -- Chris Matthews, "Hardball," Aug. 19, 1998-- "In 1992, Hillary was very effective when she came before the American people on the '60 Minutes' program and offered herself very effectively as a character witness for her husband. She said, 'Of course, he's had problems in the past,' as he admitted he caused pain. 'But he was a good man.' She was a character witness."In 1998, in January, on that Matt Lauer interview on the 'Today' show, she didn't offer herself as a character witness. She offered herself as an alibi. She said, 'He didn't do it.' I'm here -- I'm this guy's wife and I'm telling you it didn't happen. ... How can a woman, who's been betrayed by her husband so vividly, come back and offer herself once again as a character witness? How can she swear to his character if he betrayed her?" -- Chris Matthews, "Hardball," Sept. 18,1998.-- "Men feel they get married and they cut a deal. It's called fidelity. It's a great deal, you spend your life with somebody you love, and it's a great deal, let's face it. But there's one little catch. ... And then they see Hillary say, 'Well, our deal's a little more complicated,' as they like to say at the White House. Everything's more complicated when you're guilty." -- Chris Matthews, "Hardball," Sept. 30, 1998-- "Was Hillary Clinton part of the cover-up (of the Monica Lewinsky scandal) the last seven months?" -- Chris Matthews, "Hardball," Aug. 19, 1998
