Hillary Clinton Howard Stern, dogged for decades by rumors.
Hillary Clinton insisted at the top of her voice on Wednesday that she is a heterosexual woman who has ‘never even been tempted’ to have a lesbian relationship.
The former secretary of State and two-time presidential candidate has been haunted for decades by persistent rumors that she is gay. In the meantime, progress has whizzed by the ghosts of gossip past, making LGBT candidates for public office less and less remarkable.
But on the Howard Stern radio show, she protested in a half-giggle that ‘contrary to what you may hear, I actually like men.’
Stern had asked her point-blank to deny it: ‘Raise your right hand—you’ve never had a lesbian affair.’
She screamed: ‘Never! Never! Never!’
Being openly gay or bisexual isn’t a black mark against politicians in 2019. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is married to a man—and polling near the top of the Democratic presidential primary pack this year.
But Mrs. Clinton married former president Bill Clinton in 1975. And as the future president’s infamous lothario ways asserted themselves, she had her own dalliances, one of Bill’s misstresses would later claim he told her.
Gennifer Flowers, among Bill Clinton’s more famous extramarital conquests, was one of his ‘other’ women for 12 years. She told Mail Online—the previous name of DailyMail.com—that Bill was well aware Hillary was bisexual, and didn’t mind.
‘I just know what Bill told me,’ Flowers said in 2013, ‘and that was that he was aware that Hillary was bisexual and he didn’t care. He should know.’
Flowers also dropped a bombshell that later appeared in her tell-all book: ‘He said Hillary had eaten more p***y than he had.’
Another of the future president’s paramours, Sally Miller, told Mail Online in 2016 that ‘Hillary is a lesbian.’
‘I take him at his word and he told me she liked females more than men,’ Miller said then. ‘She was the child of a more progressive community. She was exposed to all the liberals, she was a flower child.’
‘This is what Bill told me,’ the onetime Miss America finalist added.
Mrs. Clinton waxed about her first encounters with Bill on Wednesday, telling the shock jock Stern that ‘he was so handsome, really handsome. He looked like a Greek god. He was very attractive.’
Gennifer Flowers’ story wasn’t the first to allege Clinton was attracted to other women.
