Vice President Kamala Harris and former President Bill Clinton are being ridiculed for an upcoming discussion at the Clinton Foundation on “empowering women and girls.”

Clinton was impeached by the House in 1998 on grounds of perjury and obstruction of justice over his sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

He was later acquitted by the Senate.

“Bill Clinton” + “impact on women” = NO. Please stop doing this,” tweeted CNN host S.E. Cupp.

“Did anyone vet this?” tweeted Newsmax host and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. “Bill Clinton is going to discuss empowering girls with @VP @KamalaHarris - maybe @NYGovCuomo can join - will it be followed by a panel about etiquette on zoom calls led by @cnn’s @JeffreyToobin?”

Spicer was referring to eight allegations of sexual misconduct or harassment against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo by current and former female staffers. The state attorney general is investigating the claims.

Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of rape, tweeted, “Is this a f----ng joke? This pervert …. Who raped me ….. is going to talk about empowering women …. with a woman who spread her legs for power.”

“Inviting Bill Clinton to speak on Empowering women.... is like asking Jeffrey Dahmer to host a cooking class,” she said in another post.

Leslie Millwee, who accused Clinton of repeatedly sexually abusing her, told the Daily Caller she couldn’t think of anyone more “ill suited” to discuss women’s empowerment than Clinton with his alleged years-long “history of abusing, raping and sexually assaulting women.”

“And he is going to get up on a stage and tell us about how to be empowered?” Millwee said. “I truly can’t think of anything more brazen. I think this goes to show you the political power that the Clintons still have.

According to the Washington Examiner, conservative commentator Rita Panahi wrote on Twitter, "Is this a comedy sketch or are they seriously trying to present Bill Clinton as a champion of women?"

The Clinton Foundation meeting is being held in partnership with Howard University, Harris’ alma mater, and will showcase, “a one-on-one conversation with President Clinton and Vice President Kamala Harris on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, and empowering women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.”

The virtual meeting will “bring together 600 students from across the world who have made Commitments to Act — new, specific, and measurable initiatives that address pressing challenges,” the Clinton Foundation wrote.
