WATCH: Colbert Offers Clinton a ‘Do Over’ On Lewinsky Questions, Here’s What Happened

Yuck.

Published

Earlier this week, former President Bill Clinton spoke with NBC and during this interview he was asked if he felt he owed Monica Lewinsky an apology for the whole sex scandal debacle.

Can you guess what his answer was?

If you said a big, fat no, then you’ve won the prize, which is a pat on the back and fifty gold stars.

As you might imagine, this caused a bit of backlash and pushback, especially from women — including several who have previously accused Clinton of sexual assault — but never fear, Stephen Colbert is here!

Clinton has since made an appearance on Colbert’s show, where he offered the former commander-in-chief a “do over” and practically spoon fed the answers to him, quite clearly attempting to rehabilitate his image after the gaffe.

Ben Shapiro breaks it down.

On Tuesday evening, CBS’ Stephen Colbert offered former president Bill Clinton a second chance at redemption after Clinton botched a question from NBC’s Craig Melvin about Monica Lewinsky on NBC’s Today. Melvin asked Clinton, “Looking back on what happened then, through the lens of #MeToo now, do you think differently or feel more responsibility?” Clinton shot back angrily, “No. I felt terrible then, and I came to grips with it.” He then said he had apologized to “everybody in the world” but didn’t owe Lewinsky a special apology. “The apology was public,” Clinton stated. He added, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt. But you typically have ignored gaping facts in describing facts, and I bet you don’t even know them.” Then Clinton talked about how he was pro-abortion.

Colbert began by saying he always enjoyed his conversation with Clinton. He then asked pleadingly, “I noticed you did not enjoy that entire interview. I want you to enjoy this one, but I do want to ask you something. Which is, when I got home last night on the CNN they had a lower-third banner that said something about ‘William Clinton’s tone-deaf response to the question on the Today Show.’ My question is, would you like a do-over on that answer? Do you understand why some people thought that was a tone-deaf response to his question on the #MeToo movement, and how you might reflect on your behavior 20 years ago, and how that reflection may change based on what you’ve learned from the #MeToo movement?”

Clinton responded, “When I saw the interview, I thought that, because they had to distill it, it looked like I was saying I didn’t apologize, and I had no intention to. And I was mad at me – not for the first time…Here is what I want to say: It wasn’t my finest hour.” Clinton went on to say that he “apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family and the American people. I mean it then, I mean it now. I have had to live with the consequences every day since. I still believe this #MeToo movement is long overdue, necessary, and should be supported.”

A few minutes into the interview, Colbert finally asked a real question, “If I could, I would think that some of the reason that people saw that interview and thought it was tone-deaf…is that you seemed surprised that that question would come up, that somehow that this had all been adjudicated in the past and there was no reason to talk about it again, when it seems like the spirit of the #MeToo movement is it doesn’t matter how long ago it happened…It seemed tone-deaf to me because you seemed offended to be asked about this thing when, with all due respect sir, your behavior was the most famous example of a powerful man sexually misbehaving in the workplace of my lifetime.”

Clinton responded by stating, “The question had been asked…in this context. And I didn’t mind at all. I didn’t like this one because it started with an assertion that I had never apologized.

Wow. Just wow.

Colbert really seemed to bend over backwards to accommodate Clinton and provide him with an opportunity to sort of walk back his earlier comment, which was quite telling in that it revealed what he really thought about the scandal all these years later.

It’s amazing how willing the mainstream media is to ignore and overlook the wickedness of the folks in their own camp, all to save face and continue pushing their own agenda. It’s sickening and gross on every level.

Assange’s Latest Charge has First Amendment Advocates Alarmed

With free speech and a free press, America will cease to exist.

As the US government grows ever larger and more powerful, it will be of the utmost importance for Americans the nation over to be ultra diligent in bucking any overreaches of power. We The People have built this nation for the purpose of advancing freedom both throughout our continent and abroad, through leadership by example. Our legislators were purposefully given the title of “public servant”, as the job was never meant to be a lucrative one. Of course, that has all changed over the course of the last 200+ years, and we are now staring down a ruling class in Congress made up of wealthy and out-of-touch career politicians. It is now more than ever that we need someone like Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, to keep an eye on all of the government’s dirty tricks. Unfortunately, Assange is currently incarcerated and awaiting trial, extradition, or both, and has added a troubling charge of “espionage” to his rap sheet this week. It is this ridiculous assertion by authorities that has journalists the world over very worried. The editors of the nation’s most influential newspapers on Friday warned against President Donald Trump administration’s latest threat to the First Amendment, expressing distress over the Justice Department’s unprecedented use of the century-old Espionage Act to indict WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for publishing classified material. American media outlets regularly publish classified material, even on occasion over the objections of the White House, as a legitimate journalistic exercise in serving the public’s right to know. Previous administrations have conducted leak investigations, and sometimes have charged the alleged leakers, but they have uniformly opted not to prosecute the journalists. There were some big names in the mix as well. In statements to The Daily Beast, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet, Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron, Wall Street…

Mainstream Massacre Continues as CNN Cuts Payroll…AGAIN!

The move comes just days after a vehement denial that such a thing could occur.

CNN

The American people don’t get nearly the credit they deserve when it comes to the mainstream media. We’re played for dummies more often than not, with the talking heads on the television constantly goading us into some mild form of hatred for one another.  The medium thrives on conflict, with sensationalism often being the key to ratings success and economic fortune, so dividing the nation down the false dichotomy of right versus left works. But they’ve gone too far, and We The People are waking up to the truth. Amid all of this manufactured outrage, Americans are tuning out, and sending a message to the infotainment industry that enough is enough. Sanjay Gupta is safe, but much of the rest of CNN’s Atlanta-based staff that covers health care found out Tuesday they are getting pink slips — only a few weeks after the network called mass layoffs a “crazy rumor.” Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that “basically the whole division” will lose their jobs. CNN was unwilling to comment on the matter. TVNewser, a media watchdog site started by CNN’s Brian Stelter, managed to get confirmation from the network — just in time for a Friday news dump. “As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser’s A.J. Katz. Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday. Katz noted that correspondent Elizabeth Cohen is also safe. The move comes after social media corporations began a mass censorship campaign targeting conservative news and opinion figures. The CNN debacle could very well be backlash by Americans who choose to remain vigilant in the face of such political discrimination.
