New Book Accusing Bill Clinton Of Rape In 1978 Published

Michael Wolff’s new tell-all book on the Trump presidential campaign and first year in the White House has hogged almost all the political news limelight over the last few days. All of the mind-boggling details of Donald Trump’s path to the White House (including Melania breaking down in tears the night her husband won the election), as well as the stunning dysfunctionality of the current Republican presidential administration, are laid bare in Wolff’s best-selling expose of Trump.

That said, while Wolff's book will continue to be the hot topic of scandal for some time to come, another salacious tell-all style book on politics was also released this week. The title of this new book is You'd Better Put Some Ice on That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton.

The author of this new book/autobiography is named Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who has publicly accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her while he was the attorney general of Arkansas. Broaddrick has been in the public eye periodically since early in 1999 when she first came out with the unsubstantiated allegations against the Democratic stalwart.

Of note, the alleged rape took place in 1978 in a hotel room in Little Rock.

According to an earlier article published in the Independent Journal Review, Broaddick claims that Clinton came to her hotel room and raped her:

"She was a 'little bit uneasy' about him coming to her room but didn't suspect she was in any danger. But the visit to the room was anything but friendly, and Broaddrick said that Clinton raped her."

The flyleaf description of Broaddick’s new book reads:

"In 1999, Juanita Broaddrick burst into the public consciousness when she accused President Bill Clinton on national television of raping her in 1978 as he ran for governor in Arkansas. It was a TV appearance she dreaded and never wanted, but felt compelled to squash the rumors: it was rape."

"Now, with award-winning former investigative journalist Nick Lulli, she tells her story of survival; from the assault at the hands of the future president, to the veiled threats by a seemingly complicit presidential wannabe Hillary Rodham Clinton; Broaddrick believes now is the time to set the record straight and ensure victims everywhere are believed."

It should also be pointed out You'd Better Put Some Ice on That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton is apparently a pretty short book at just 90 pages. While the new book has garnered a number of positive early reviews, a few reviewers have referenced the short length of the book as “small blessings”.

Here is a recent tweet from Juanita Broaddrick plugging her new book:

“THANKS TO ALL we are now rated #1 Political book on Kindle," she wrote.

"Hopefully when the book finally ships, we can reach #1 there, too. We are currently #21 and climbing."
