Bill Clinton Gets Heated and Squirms As He’s Asked About Apologizing to Monica Lewinsky

As Reported by Julia Nista DC| Former President Bill Clinton got heated Monday morning on NBC’s “Today” show over questions about his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky in light of the #MeToo movement.

He said he had not apologized to her personally, though he apologized to her on national television, and he declined to say whether he believes he owes her apology today.


In an interview with NBC’s Craig Melvin, Clinton accused Melvin of “giving one side” of the Lewinsky story.

“This March, Monica Lewinsky penned an op-ed in “Vanity fair,” taking responsibility for her part in the scandal but also admitting that years later, she was diagnosed with PTSD from the unrelenting public scrutiny,” Melvin said, as he read aloud an excerpt from the op-ed. “Looking back, through the lens of #MeToo now, do you think differently or feel more responsibility?”

Clinton said he felt “terrible” and “came to grips with it,” and that he did apologize to Lewinsky and left the White House $16 million in debt.
