When it comes to Bill Clinton, Democrats are no better than Republicans

Bill Clinton and #MonicaToo Bernie Sanders Says Bill Clinton’s Affair With Monica Lewinsky Has ‘Haunted That Family Forever’

The Fox Theatre presents former President Bill Clinton at the Cobb Energy Centre on Wednesday, June 13 at 7:30 p.m. for a wide-ranging conversation as he discusses his forthcoming novel, "The President is Missing", on sale now.

Too late to wade into it now.

Former President Bill Clinton, who has been deemed too toxic for Democrats in the mid-term elections, had a hard time answering Monica Lewinsky questions during an interview this week, leading many to wonder why the president hasn't had his own #MeToo self-examination. "You, of course, did not assert that he never apologized, you asked whether he had apologized".

Now, Clinton has defended former Minnesota Sen. The result is a powerful, one-of-a-kind thriller filled with details only a President could know, and the kind of suspense only James Patterson can deliver. "I will make that decision as to whether I do it or not". "I meant it then. But I had to live with this".

"I dealt with it 20 years ago, plus", the 71-year-old politician-turned-author said, insisting that he doesn't owe Lewinsky a public apology.

Bill Clinton's second attempt at the #MeToo movement went better than his first - and not just because it couldn't go worse.

Trump exits G7 with trade warning: Retaliatory tariffs would be 'mistake'
Donald Trump has been busy attacking US allies ahead of the G7 summit which begins today in the town of La Malbaie in Quebec. Canada, Mexico and the European Union all threatened retaliatory tariffs after their exemption status was lifted.

"Well, in general, I think it's a good thing, yes", Clinton said about norms changing.

He said perpetrators don't have to physically assault somebody to make them uncomfortable at work and said recognizing that fact is good. "I think it's a good thing that we should all have higher standards".

Clinton has received a lot of criticism for the interview with many people-including fellow liberals calling his remarks "tone-deaf" for his response to questions about Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement. While Clinton admitted the interview was "not his finest hour", he doubled down on what he had said at the book tour event.

Lewinsky, now 44, has not specifically commented on Clinton's remarks, but did re-post her March Vanity Fair column about the tryst.

Clinton said that Melvin's questions began with the "assertion" that he had never apologized to Lewinsky and that Melvin "aggressively" said he had never apologized.
