Bristol had the bad luck to fall in love with a selfish, opportunist loser, whose real nature she didn’t understand until too late. That can happen. I suspect that he was a very good liar.
If she had been a typical lib, she would have quietly aborted her baby and shoveled the whole thing under a rug, baby and all. She made one bad choice, but she could have done a lot worse, and then the media would have applauded her for it.
And far from shoveling the whole thing under the rug, she is going the extra mile to try to keep others from making the same mistake she did. Good for her.
