Twitter users had a field day with the news.
Most expressed that it is laughable to ask Clinton’s authority on the topic of empowering women and girls, given his famous philandering, numerous accusations of sexual assault, and close previous relationship with the late convicted sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.
One person joked that “Monica Lewinsky and Ghislaine Maxwell will be calling in via zoom” for the panel.
Yet another suggested, “Refreshments to be supplied by the Cosby foundation.”
Others were outraged by the decision, with one follower tweeting, “This is sickening.
“@BillClinton used the totality of his time in public office using power to procure sex from young women at the start of their careers & burying them, he is credibly accused of forceful rape AND sexual assault.
“Shame on @KamalaHarris. @VP should cancel this.”
Someone else added, “Tell @VP and Billy boy this is beyond tone-deaf. It’s an insult.”
One person commented that agreeing to the event was a bad call on the part of Harris’ people, writing, “Can’t believe whoever booked this for Kamy didn’t pause just a SECOND and say……..
“Should we really have Bill discussing this with the VP?
“Maybe they will fly Monica in to be in the audience for the open question portion of the program.”
Harris is set to speak with Clinton despite the former president having faced allegations of rape and sexual assault from multiple women spanning decades.
Clinton was also close associates with convicted pedophile and child sex-trafficking billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
Clinton has remained largely silent regarding the flights that he took on Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” private jet, which reportedly offered underage girls to passengers for sex.
In January 2020, the U.S. Sun published an article that showed a photo of Clinton standing on Epstein’s plane with a young girl, Chauntae Davies, who is mentioned by the Sun to have been Epstein’s “sex slave.”
Additional photos of the president with Epstein’s victims, including one of Clinton receiving a shoulder rub, have since been leaked.
Additionally, Harris previously called for impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over allegations of sexual harassment.
However, she has remained silent regarding the sexual assault allegations from several women against Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
