The wording of the opening sentence was rather curious. Almost as if their disgust is toward the reports.
Disgusted by the reports or the actual behavior?

Looks like it took a whole ton of pressure to finally get the former president to speak about the issue.

After also being called out for her silence, Hillary Clinton released a statement earlier on Tuesday with similar language.

Nice to see they could finally muster a condemnation of someone with countless allegations of sexual harassment against him.

Doubt we’ll be seeing anything happen with the money, though.
