In an interview on the Today show Monday, Bill Clinton got testy and said he did not owe Monica Lewinsky a private apology, arguing that he had apologized publicly 20 years ago.
By Monday night, he realized that this wasn’t too cool in the #MeToo era. “I meant it then and I meant it now. I apologize to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family, and the American people,” he said.
Clinton has even tried to suggest that he’s down with the #MeToo movement, which is a little like John Gotti saying it’s time to do something serious about organized crime.
Anyway, Bill was a bad boy, many times. He has even credibly been accused of rape. And he has to pay for just a tiny bit. And of course, he doesn’t like it.
Overall, the guy is doing great. But the inconvenience of the payback for having oral sex in the Oval Office with an intern still is very annoying for him.
