Actress-comedienne Sandra Bernhard has leaped to the defence of Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, after she was criticised by women for sticking by her man following his infidelity. Hillary Clinton famously stuck by her husband (and then-U.S.. President) Bill Clinton after he admitted to an 'inappropriate relationship' with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and Bernhard can't believe how hard other women are on her for doing so. She explains, "(They say) 'well who does she think she is? She thinks she's so smart and independent and she just stood by that man when he cheated on her'. The whole concept of marriage and fidelity is so puritanical in this country (the U.S.) and so absurd."
