Kirsters Baish| On Monday, former President Bill Clinton sat down for an interview with NBC’s “Today” show host Craig Melvin. During the interview, Clinton tried to play the victim card after Melvin asked him if he had ever issued a personal apology to former White House intern Monica Lewinsky for sexually harassing her. Today, Lewinsky decided to speak up and explain that the incident still very much effects her life to this day.
The now 44-year-old took to Twitter to tell the public that she has “evolved” since the days that she served in Clinton’s White House. She explained that she is “grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years.”
The former White House intern also posted a link to an article that she had written for “Vanity Fair” back in March. She stated that she still deals with the trauma that came from Clinton’s abuse. She claimed that a doctor had diagnosed her with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder.) She explained that this abuse, which took place twenty years ago, has changed her life immensely as the former president continues to blame her for his downfall.
“My trauma expedition has been long, arduous, painful, and expensive. And it’s not over,” Lewinsky’s Vanity Fair article reads. “For two decades, I have been working on myself, my trauma, and my healing.”
She also thanked the internet sexual abuse awareness #MeToo movement:
I—we—owe a huge debt of gratitude to the #MeToo and Time’s Up heroines. They are speaking volumes against the pernicious conspiracies of silence that have long protected powerful men when it comes to sexual assault, sexual harassment, and abuse of power.
It’s pretty sick to watch the way Bill Clinton tried to talk his way out of taking responsibility during Monday’s interview. When the he doesn’t like the questions that are being asked to him, he tries to turn it around and play the victim. He even claimed that he doesn’t have to apologize to Lewinsky! Now he’s saying that he definitely did issue a personal apology to the former White House intern.
“The truth is, the hubbub was I got hot under the collar because of the way the questions were asked,” Clinton said in Harlem, New York, on June 4 while promoting his new book.
Clinton said: “I think what was lost were the two points that I made that are important to me: The suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me 20 years ago. I did. I meant it then, I meant it now. I apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky, and her family and to the American people before a panel of ministers in the White House, which was widely reported. So I did that. I meant it then and I mean it today. I live with it all the time.”
He added: “The second is that I support the Me Too movement and think it is long overdue. I have always tried to support it in the decisions and policies that I advanced.”
The screwed up part about the entire thing is that no one cared that Clinton cheated on his wife or that he was sleeping with a girl who was barely legal. All anyone made any kind of fuss about was the fact that Clinton had lied under oath when asked about the affair… and the cover-up he put together after that was frowned upon too.
One of Clinton’s other victims came forward in support of Lewinsky:
Take a minute to think about the way the left would act if the same thing happened with President Trump. Sobering thought, huh?
