Bill Clinton Gets a 'Do-Over' on 'Late Show'

Bill Clinton defends his behavior amid #MeToo movement Bill Clinton gets a #MeToo do-over on ‘The Late Show’: ‘I was mad at me’

But because Bill Clinton is on the left he was given the opportunity to make amends for his interview performance when appearing on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

He added: "It wasn't my finest hour but the important thing is, that was a very painful thing that happened 20 years ago and I apologised to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family, to the American people". In that interview, Clinton said, of his sit-down with Melvin, "I got mad... and should have remembered that man is young enough to be my son".

After airing those clips, Guthrie assured Melvin, "You did not assert he never apologized, you asked whether he had apologized".

"And I think we all need to keep trying to be doing better".

"When I first met Bill Clinton, it was when I was sent on my first story by myself after my training with my cameraman", she told Ingraham. Clinton's answer was a mix of parsing the question (he was annoyed that Melvin implied that he'd never apologized to Lewinsky, which he did, though not in person) and a pivoting to his message of general support for #MeToo without implicating himself in any way.

It's no wonder Clinton seems to have learned little from his past discretion, even though he has in the past publicly apologised. Bill said, "and I still believe this #MeToo movement is long overdue, necessary, and should be supported".

She said she turned her life around in prison and decided that she wasn't "going to just do time or let time do me". Trump recently pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted of a campaign finance violation.


Clinton explained his frustrations came not from the question, but from how it was phrased. I apologized. I meant it then, I mean it now.

One thing getting somewhat lost in the discussion is the idea that Clinton's, or any politician's, policies or good public works should somehow excuse or mitigate his bad private behavior.

"I don't know what people say in their books, what I know is if they were complicit, that's their marriage and that's what they do", Goldberg said, insisting Clinton "is the woman who goes through it every day, every day from both sides".

Clinton received widespread criticism over his response to a question about his impeachment scandal following his 2-year affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky in light of the recent #MeToo movement.

According to Ms Lewinsky, she had sexual encounters with Mr Clinton on nine occasions from November 1995 to March 1997, with his wife Hillary being present at the White House for at least some of those. The American people, two-thirds of them stayed with me. Trump has been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual misconduct and was caught on tape bragging about grabbing women's crotches. The Republican Party used an investigation into real estate deals - which essentially turned up nothing - to impeach Clinton because he lied under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky.
