In recent weeks the presidential election has gone from candidates talking about issues (at least sometimes) to candidates launching personal attacks over matters of sexual misconduct, specifically that of GOP nominee Donald Trump and Democrat ex-President Bill Clinton. Now conservative commentator Matt Drudge is making Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton a player in her own right.
Hillary Clinton has attacked Trump over the tape of him making lewd commentsabout women, and Trump has fired right back by bringing up Bill Clinton’ sexual misdeeds and his wife’s shabby treatment of his victims.
Drudge decided to get in on the action Saturday by sending out an ominous tweet (one of only three he has ever posted) directed squarely at Clinton.
“Oh, on the sex stuff. Hillary is about to get hers …” he tweeted, along with a photo of Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres.

The picture, and the caption, were most likely a thinly veiled reference to multiple unsubstantiated rumors that Clinton is a lesbian and that her aid, Huma Abedin, is her secret lover.
There have been various stories over the years that have “exposed” Clinton’s lesbian tendencies, but none have contained anything beyond innuendo and circumstancial evidence.
Drudge gave no timeline for when Clinton would “get hers,” nor did he give any indication what sort of evidence he had that would expose the “sex stuff.”
Clinton is already being hurt by the steady leak of thousands of emails from her campaign chairman, John Podesta, which have exposed her deceitful nature and the ugly outlook of her campaign staff.
If actual verified evidence of her “sex stuff” were to come out, it would most likely damage her even more. With only three weeks to go until Election Day, any sort of scandal of that nature could be hard to recover from.
I suppose we just have to wait and see if Drudge follows through on his threat.
