Bill Clinton was resurrected during the 2016 presidential campaign as some sort of folk hero by the democrats.
But the truth is, he is ust as big of a sleaze ball now as he ever was, as an appearance on the Today Show this morning confirmed.
Clinton was asked, “Looking back on what happened then, through the lens of #MeToo now, do you think differently or feel more responsibility?”
His response? “No. I felt terrible then, and I came to grips with it,” Clinton replied.
Asked if he ever apologized to Monica Lewinsky for everything he put her though, the former president somewhat angrily remarked, “I apologized to everybody in the world.”
To his credit, the interviewer continued to press, saying, “But you didn’t apologize to her.”
“I have not talked to her,” Clinton responded.
The interviewer, seeming surprised, continued to press. “Do you feel like you owe her an apology,” he asked.
Clinton’s response? “No, I do — I do not. I’ve never talked to her. But I did say, publicly, on more than one occasion, that I was sorry. That’s very different. The apology was public.”
As if that were not bad enough, the former president continued talking, remarkably trying to turn HIMSELF into the victim.
“Nobody believes that I got out of that for free,” in reference to the scandal, which resulted in Clinton’s impeachment and a pile of legal bills. I left the White House $16 million in debt. But you typically have ignored gaping facts in describing this, and I bet you don’t even know them,” he said.
Bill Clinton has owed Monica Lewinsky a personal apology for 20 years. His taking advantage of a young girl like that by virtue of his position of power unjustly made her the laughingstock of America and ruined her life.
Lewinsky, to her great credit, has rebounded and leads a normal life now. But she never asked for anything that happened to her and the fact that Clinton still not only refuses to apologize but somehow thinks he is the victim in all of this shows that his public apology back in 1998 was always a farce.
Bill Clinton does not care about women. He never has.
He used them, abused them, and then tossed them to the side.
Some hero the democrats picked.
