Juanita Broaddrick wants to know why plaudits are being heaped upon Oprah Winfrey for her Golden Globes speech despite offering muted criticism of former President Bill Clinton for decades.
Celebrities cheered Sunday when Ms. Winfrey told abusive men that “their time is up” due to the #MeToo movement, but Ms. Broaddrick says she’s a hypocrite. The 75-year-old, who has maintained for decades that Mr. Clinton raped her in 1978, took to social media this week to blast Ms. Winfrey — a longtime supporter of the Democratic Party — for selective moral outrage.
“Hey @Oprah #GoldenGlobes,” Ms. Broaddrick tweeted Monday. “Funny I’ve never heard you mention my name. CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? Guess not. My rapist was/is your friend, Bill Clinton.”
Ms. Broaddrick then referenced a 2004 interview between Ms. Winfrey and Mr. Clinton, which avoided rape allegations against him.
“What was the most difficult part of [the Monical Lewinsky scandal] for you?” the talk show host asked Mr. Clinton at the time, Fox News reported.
Ms. Winfrey was on hand Sunday to accept the Golden Globes’ annual Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. Pundits speculated that she may run for president in 2020.

Mr. Clinton’s legal team called the allegations “false and outrageous” in February 1999.
