The former mistress of former President Bill Clinton may have just turned his wife Hillary’s world upside-down.
During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Lewinsky said that if she ever happened to run into Hillary Clinton in public, she would want to tell her “how very sorry I am.”
These are odd words coming from a woman who was publicly berated by the former first lady and twice-failed presidential candidate.
After years of staying in the shadows, Monica Lewinsky has found her stride and is no longer shy about telling her story.
The #MeToo movement has seemed to have energized the disgraced former White House intern.
While initially ridiculed by liberals and persecuted by the Clinton machine, people are now realizing that Lewinsky was the victim in all of this.
She was an impressionable and very young lady who got caught up in Bill Clinton’s web of power.
Lewinksy served as Clinton’s sexual toy until he had no further use for her.
When the story first broke, Hillary Clinton was not shy about putting all the blame on Lewinsky and admonishing her serial sex offender husband.
Lewinsky, however, apologized for the incident — and would do so again now.
Lewinsky said in the interview: “My first public words after the scandal…were an apology directly to Chelsea and Mrs. Clinton.
“And, if I were to see Hillary Clinton in person today, I know that I would summon up whatever force I needed to again acknowledge to her – sincerely – how very sorry I am,” she added.
Oddly enough, Hillary has never stated she would express a similar sentiment to Lewinsky.
Only a few months ago, Bill caused quite the stir when he was directly asked if he thought he owed Monica an apology, and he said he did not.
He later appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he was given the opportunity to apologize for his words.
“It wasn’t my finest hour,” the former president said, “but the important thing is that was a very painful thing that happened 20 years ago and I apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family, to the American people.”
Nobody really believes Bill’s hollow words, and nobody really believes Hillary will ever apologize for the cruel things she said about Lewinsky during the scandal.
It sure would be nice, though, to put them both on the same stage and see how it all plays out.
