U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris is expected to attend two controversial events this week.
The first of these events will feature her debate with former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
Harris and Clinton will talk about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, and the event will also include recommendations about how women and girls should cope with the unprecedented situation caused by the virus.
Many people pointed out that Harris’s participation in an event with Clinton is particularly controversial given the history of sexual harassment allegations against the former U.S. President.
Even left-wing activists stressed that nothing that aims at discussing women’s rights should involve Bill Clinton.
On the other side of the political spectrum, Scott Walker, a former Republican Governor of Wisconsin, pointed to remarks Vice President Harris made about always believing women when they accuse men of sexual harassment.
He suggested that such statements contradict her collaboration with Clinton.
The Daily Caller website recalled that Clinton was accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick.
The website also published that the former President was accused of sexually harassing other women, including Leslie Millwee, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Willey.
Of course, the most well-known was his affair with 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky during Clinton’s second presidential term.
Moreover, Clinton was linked with a notorious sexual harasser Jeffrey Epstein.
Journalist Conchita Sarnoff revealed in 2019 that Clinton traveled in Epstein’s private plane at the same time when several underage girls were on the same jet.
Anti-Semite who believes that Israel should not exist
Another event Harris plans to attend will be hosted by Black Women’s Roundtable.
The organization is controversial because of its ties with Tamika Mallory, a leftist known for her support of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and her negation of Israel’s right to exist as a country.
Following the widespread backlash, Mallory had to resign from her involvement with The Women’s March.
Black Women’s Roundtable is one of the organizations comprising the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation.
The head of the latter, Melanie Campbell, is Mallory’s friend who defended her from the criticism of her radical views and a petition against her participation in The Women’s March.
Given the scandals surrounding the people connected to the events Harris is about to attend, it is up to the Vice President to say a word to justify herself.
Given the circumstances, statements of that sort are not likely to happen.
