It’s 2016 and liberal women are still shaming sexual-assault victims.

Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), who has endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, described Bill Clinton’s accusers as being “middle-aged-looking women” who were “not looking their best, perhaps looking much better, you know, 40 years ago,” on Monday’s “The Bill Press Show.”

Ms. Norton said she “almost felt sorry” for these “middle aged-looking women” who attended the second presidential debate at Donald Trump’s invitation, adding “Now, you bring in a bunch of women, not looking their best, perhaps looking much better, you know, 40 years ago, to present them before the debate, for what purpose?”

Her opinions were echoed on Monday’s edition of ABC’s “The View” program, where co-host Joy Behar, took it a step further, calling Mr. Clinton’s accusers “tramps.”

Ms. Behar recommend Mrs. Clinton should’ve addressed the victims of her husband’s indiscretion at Sunday’s debate by saying: “I would like to apologize to those tramps that have slept with my husband.’ Maybe [Mrs. Clinton] could have said that.”

On Tuesday, Ms. Behar apologized, saying her comment was a joke gone awry. God forbid a Republican say anything similar.
