"I asked her how in the world she can say that Juanita Broderick and Kathleen Wiley are lying when she has no idea who Juanita Broderick is", she said. His comments referred to the Monica Lewinsky scandal, in which Bill Clinton's extramarital affair with a White House intern led to his impeachment.
But the young faces that stood behind Bill Clinton as he kicked off his wife's presidential campaign looked like bored. As the presidential candidate herself had been campaigning about her sexual assault plan, emphasizing that survivors all deserve to be heard, O'Brien said she foud her stance to be hypocritical.
Bob Peters made the trip up from Lexington, Mass., to see Bill Clinton, who, he said, "hit it out of the park".

He could be especially effective with older New Hampshire voters with fond memories of his tenure, said University of New Hampshire political science professor Dante Scala, and with lower-income men who "may not see much in common between themselves and Hillary Clinton".

The stops were the former president's first solo campaign events since Hillary Clinton announced she was running for president last summer.
Clinton addressed a rally at a community college in the city of Nashua, paying tribute to Hillary's determination to make America a fairer, safer country for the poor and struggling middle classes.
"I do not believe in my lifetime anybody has run for this job at a moment of great importance who was better qualified by knowledge, experience and temperament to do what needs to be done now", Clinton's top cheerleader told voters.
In the current campaign, Mr. Clinton said that Hillary is pursuing politics that were inclusive enough to get something done.
But the attacks seem to have struck a nerve. Former President Clinton didn't mention anyone by name when speaking in New Hampshire, CNN reports.
"You are very rude, and I'm not ever going to call on you", Clinton told O'Brien, adding, firmly, "Thank you".
"We know it's a New Hampshire primary now".
