During US President Donald Trump’s election campaign, the media – and the celebrities – attacked him for being a misogynist, or sexist. He continues to be hated by the so-called feminists in the US and, perhaps, other left-leaning ‘liberal’ groups across the world.
So, obviously, ‘feminists’ failed to see what Bill Clinton did at the inauguration ceremony of Donald Trump. Or, probably, to the ‘feminists’ Clinton actually did not do what the social media is claiming that he did. Because, as I write this, ‘feminists’ are busy taking out a huge protest rally against Donald Trump.
What did Bill Clinton do? He appears to be ogling at Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka. And you’d laugh when you see Hillary’s reaction when she catches her 70-year-old husband looking at the 35-year-old Ivanka.
But as usual, the media sees Trump as their sexist punching bag. So they did not carry scathing articles against Bill Clinton’s behaviour, which, at least, begs this question:
Can you imagine what he would’ve done back in the White House? https://t.co/Bdy351hbw1

On the contrary, some of the Trump-hating media, which gave space to Bill’s act, used a question mark in the headline or the word ‘alleged’.
In fact, if you type ‘Donald Trump Misogynist’ in Google, the first page carries articles of all kinds focussing on Trump’s alleged sexism. One look at them and anyone would be compelled to believe that Trump is a sexist.
All the publications in the first page are mainstream, mainly British publications (they dominate the media both sides of the pond) who relentlessly talked about Trump’s alleged character flaws than the flaws in the Obama administration and the total failure of Hillary Clinton as a Secretary of State.
On the other hand when one types ‘Bill Clinton Sexist’ (note that sexist is a word googled more than misogynist) one gets this result:
A few publications are right-wing. Those who are not are not exactly talking about Clinton specifically. One of them is an opinion piece. And the last one is actually in Clinton’s defence and blames Trump.
Despite Clinton’s involvement in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the media did not raise that as an issue in their flowery praises of Hillary Clinton during the campaigning. On the other hand, the entire Trump family had been dragged for any opportunity to demean Donald Trump.
That speaks a lot about the media hypocrisy in the West.
