Vice President Kamala Harris participated in a public conversation this week with former President Bill Clinton to discuss the best ways to go about “empowering women and girls.”
According to Breitbart, actress Rose McGowan, a champion of the #MeToo movement, was among the many critics who voiced opposition to Clinton’s involvement, given his particularly controversial history with women.
McGowan slams “obscene” discussion
The discussion came as part of an annual Clinton Global Initiative event held at Howard University and was announced several days in advance.
For her part, McGowan decried the Harris-Clinton conversation as “obscene” and “disgusting,” but she was not the first to speak out.
Virginia Giuffre, an alleged victim of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein who claimed to have personally seen Clinton on Epstein’s private island, was among the first critics to voice concerns.
In her statement on the matter, Giuffre declared that the former president was the “wrong person” to engage in a discussion with anyone about “empowering women and girls.”
McGowan retweeted the comment and added her own message.
“Have you no soul?”
“You speaking with Bill Clinton about empowering women & girls is disgusting,” she wrote in a tweet directed at Harris, as Breitbart reported. “Have you no soul? Have you no ethics? Ask him about being on an island of human trafficking victims 27 times. You are showing us exactly who you are.”
This is obscene @KamalaHarris. You speaking with Bill Clinton about empowering women & girls is disgusting. Have you no soul? Have you no ethics? Ask him about being on an island of human trafficking victims 27 times. You are showing us exactly who you are. https://t.co/DQsbgxWhx4 pic.twitter.com/j3DhtixHtW

The actress also included a screenshot from Clinton’s Wikipedia page covering some of the many allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.
One of those accusers, Juanita Broaddrick, similarly expressed disgust, tweeting: “Is this a f***ing joke? This pervert…who raped me…is going to talk about empowering women…with a woman who spread her legs for power.”
McGowan has been critical of Clinton and other powerful Democrats in the past, going after President Joe Biden for essentially ignoring or downplaying allegations against him. As for Clinton’s conversation with the vice president, it remains to be seen whether the mainstream media chooses to ignore the criticism or grant it the coverage it deserves.
