A CNN panel was quick to defend former President Bill Clinton Tuesday night after a Republican commentator asked how he had not been "canceled" in the #MeToo era.

Ahead of Clinton's appearance on the second night of the Democratic National Convention, Scott Jennings, a former George W. Bush White House official, was puzzled that the Democrats continue to give Clinton a platform.
"I have to say... I am dumbfounded by this. How is it that Bill Clinton has not been canceled by the Democratic -- how has he survived all of these waves of cancellations when he has been one of the biggest violators of these rules all these years?" Jennings asked.
"We believe in redemption, brother," Jones responded.
"We talk about the use of character to try and say 'Donald Trump is a man of lower character than Joe Biden' ... he's fair game. That's totally fine," Jennings continued. "So you're gonna say that in one breath and then say, 'Character matters. Ladies and gentlemen, Bill Clinton!'
"I mean, does this make sense to anyone?" Jennings went on. "If you want Republicans to vote for Joe Biden, having Bill Clinton talk about character and not hav[ing] drama in the Oval Office- is that the right answer?"
Never-before-seen photos of Bill Clinton grinning with pleasure as he enjoys an intimate neck massage with a young Jeffrey Epstein victim emerged yesterday, serving as an ill-timed reminder of Clinton's links to Epstein just before the former president's endorsement of Joe Biden at the Democratic Convention.

A few yrs ago @TheDemocrats began 2 admit the faults of @BillClinton, even beginning to “reckon w Clinton’s sex crimes”. Tonight,he’s a featured speaker @ DNC & endorser of @JoeBiden. So, are we walking back that he’s a rapist? Or has he been granted leftist immunity to “evolve”?— Brandon Straka (@BrandonStraka) August 19, 2020

Former President Bill Clinton: “At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center.” During his DNC speech Tuesday, Mr. Clinton said voters can “hire someone else,” saying Joe Biden would be "a down-to-earth, get-the-job-done guy.” pic.twitter.com/al0l43Prjh— 8 News NOW (@8NewsNow) August 19, 2020
