Bill Clinton still can’t help himself when it comes to his sexual misconduct while in office.
During a recent interview, Clinton said he did not owe Monica Lewinsky a personal apology, then said he was just “hot under the collar” when he gave the answer.
Can’t Avoid It
When someone gets Bill in the chair, he absolutely must be prepared to answer questions about his indiscretions throughout his career.
Especially in the #MeToo culture we currently live in.
Clinton recently appeared on the “Today” show and was asked specifically about the Lewinsky incident.
He stated, “I apologized to everybody in the world. The apology was public.”
He then stated, “No, I do not,” when asked if he thought he should apologize directly to Monica.
Clinton later conceded he was upset at the line of questioning and further explained.
“The suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me 20 years ago.”
“First point is, I did. I meant it then, I meant it now. I apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family and to the American people before a panel of ministers in the White House, which was widely reported.”
Wrong Again Bill
Clinton got it wrong, though.
The question was clear… does he think he owes Monica a direct apology, something to our knowledge that has ever happened.
A public apology is not the same as looking someone in the eye and admitting you wronged them.
Always the Martyr
The king of deflection, Clinton tried to move the conversation over to how he suffered directly as a result of the presidency.
He left the White House “$16 million in debt.”
Well, whose fault was that Bill?
And how is anyone in this story a victim other than Monica?
When you think about it, it is appalling that he even tried to go there.
Perhaps that does explain why Hillary was offering pay-to-play while Secretary of State, though.
After all, they have to figure out some way to pay off all of those bills.
