Not everyone was fawning over Oprah Winfrey’s barnstorming speech from Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards

Juanita Broaddrick, who has alleged that former President Bill Clinton raped her during his 1978 campaign for Arkansas governor, called out the media mogul for addressing the #MeToo movement during her speech.

Broaddrick, 75, tweeted on Monday morning: ‘Hey @Oprah #GoldenGlobes. Funny I’ve never heard you mention my name. CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? Guess not. My rapist was/is your friend, Bill Clinton.’

The tweet was particularly poignant as Winfrey’s speech decried sexual misconduct and abuse by men in powerful positions as she accepted the Cecil B DeMille Award.

‘For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men,’ she said. ‘But their time is up. Their time is up.’

Broaddrick then pointed to an interview the 63-year-old talk show host conducted with the 71-year-old former president in August 2004.

When Winfrey questioned Clinton about his sex scandal involving former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, she simply asked: ‘What was the most difficult part of that time for you?’

Broaddrick tweeted: ‘Remember this @Oprah, You’ve had so many opportunities to bring up my allegations, which have never been discredited. Why??’

In 1999, after years of staying silent, Broaddrick, the woman known in government documents only as 'Jane Doe No 5' decided to come forward about her allegation that Clinton sexually assaulted her in a hotel room in April 1978 (Broaddrick, far right, and Clinton, second from left, April 1978)

In 1999, after years of staying silent, Broaddrick, the woman known in government documents only as ‘Jane Doe No 5’ decided to come forward about her allegation that Clinton sexually assaulted her in a hotel room in April 1978.

‘It was a horrible, horrible experience and I just wanted it to go away,’ she told The Washington Post at the time.

The Clinton legal team has denied Broaddrick’s allegations, labeling them as ‘false and outrageous’.

‘Any allegation that the president assaulted Ms. Broaddrick more than 20 years ago is absolutely false,’ Clinton’s personal attorney, David E Kendall, said in a statement released by the White House in 1999. ‘Beyond that we are not going to comment.’

On Tuesday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said that many Democrats have told him privately they believe Clinton raped Broaddrick.

Scarborough brought up topic while discussing GOP Senorita Lindsey Graham’s appearance on the View  remarking that he had previously called Trump a ‘xenophobic, race-baiting religious bigot’ but that he was also doing a lot of good things ‘on multiple fronts’ as president.

 

‘How do you split the difference? And I’ll make Democrats uncomfortable and make them hate me too, because I want to be an equal-opportunity offender,’ Scarborough said.

‘How did Democrats split the difference on Bill Clinton when they knew, or many believed and would tell me off the air that he raped Juanita Broaddrick? How do you split the difference to move your political agenda forward?’
