Amid all of the sexual misconduct and rape accusations swirling around Hollywood bigwigs and government officials, the name Bill Clinton has resurfaced. Now, Juanita Broaddrick is taking advantage of this turn of events by coming out with a new book detailing her rape allegations against former President Bill Clinton.
“The time has come for me to talk about my life and abuse in full,” Broaddrick wrote on Twitter. “I am working on a book with [journalist Nick Lulli] to set the record straight on what Bill Clinton did to me.”
In an interview with Fox News (see video below), Broaddrick tells Laura Ingraham, “I feel like people are starting to believe and realize I was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton.”
The book’s title, “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That,” is a reference to what Broaddrick says Clinton told her after he allegedly raped her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978. The book’s subtitle is: “How I survived being raped by Bill Clinton.”
“This is the part that always stays in my mind – the way he put on his sunglasses,” Broaddrick told the Wall Street Journal in 1999. “Then he looked at me and said ‘You better put some ice on that’. Then he left.”
Broaddrick has for decades accused Bill Clinton of raping her while he was attorney general of Arkansas. She further accused Hillary Clinton of actively working to silence her.
The book is expected to come out in January 2018.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.

In a surprising twist, staunch liberal Chelsea Handler apologized to Broaddrick in a tweet, telling her, “I apologize to you for not knowing your story. Democrats along with Republicans and the rest of the world’s political parties all need to do better and respect the firsthand accounts of victims. I believe you.”
I’m sorry I’m just seeing this, @atensnut. You are right and I apologize to you for not knowing your story. Democrats along with Republicans and the rest of the worlds’s political parties all need to do better and respect the firsthand accounts of victims. I believe you. https://t.co/VDIFmCvg7g
