“You’d Better Put Some Ice on That”
About the Book
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.
Juanita Broaddrick is an American former nursing home administrator. In 1999, she alleged that U.S. President Bill Clinton raped her in April 1978 when he was the Attorney General of Arkansas. Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, denied the allegations on his client’s behalf, and Clinton declined to comment further on the issue.
Rumors circulated about Broadrrick’s allegation for years eventually motivating investigators during the Clinton Impeachment, led by Kenneth Starr, to further examine numerous issues and try to determine what were facts and what were rumors fomented by the leftist media and the Clinton spin doctor machine. Starr included said investigative findings in his final report.
Speculation continued that Broadrrick had more to say on the matter, and in an interview with Dateline NBC that aired on February 24, 1999, she discussed the matter in public for the first time saying that Clinton had raped her.
Among the claims of sexual misconduct by Clinton that emerged during the 1990s, Juanita’s claims proved to be the most serious.
Broaddrick’s claims returned to public attention during the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the 2017 #MeToo phenomenon.
Juanita Broderick published her memoir “You’d Better Put Some Ice on That” in 2018.
Since the 2016 election, Broaddrick has been increasingly politically active in support of Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
