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

Yuck.

Published

on

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.

BLM Activists Suggests Waukesha Parade Massacre is Beginning of a ‘Revolution’

The left just cannot help themselves when it comes to promoting violence.

Published

on

As with any tragedy that occurs here in the United States, there are political and cultural organizations and individuals looking to spin the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre into something that selfishly behooves their cause, and these suggestions are growing more offensive by the day.

The latest allegation comes from a self-proclaimed “militant” with the Black Lives Matter movement, who believes that the event may be the start of something much larger.

A Milwaukee Black Lives Matter activist said the Christmas parade attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin, appears to signal “the revolution” may have begun.

“I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Vaun Mayes said on Facebook Live on Monday. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”

Mayes is a well-known activist in Milwaukee. He describes himself as a “Battle rapper, Community activist, Songwriter, Tattoo artist, Militant,” in his Twitter bio, which is accompanied by various hashtags, including “#BlackLivesMatter,” “#BlackLoveMatters” and “#RBG.”

Mayes would go on to parrot a largely-condemned suggestion that the attack was meant as revenge for the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial.

“I said I wasn’t going to speak on no rumors. Y’all are repeating some of the stuff that, you know, that has come up. And I can tell you that the initial person who reached out to me said that they believe that this has to do with the verdict, and so I made an assumption of which side it would be from, but I don’t know,” he added in the video, referring to the not-guilty verdict of Kyle Rittenhouse. The video was filmed at the scene of the parade attack.

These comments speak to a larger issue here in the US, in which many on the left side of the aisle are continuing to turn toward violent rhetoric, and away from the principles of liberty and justice for all.

Ukraine Accuses Russians of Plotting Coup for Next Week

The highly specific threat was made public just hours ago.

Published

on

For years now, Russia has been bullying the world.  From weapons tests to forced annexations to being the likely cause of “Havana Syndrome”, there is little doubt that Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin cronies are playing the role of the global villain without even the slightest amount of regret.

And, after spending years attempting to force Ukraine back into Russian control, the small nation’s President is now suggesting that some miscreants from Moscow are planning to stage a coup in his country.

Russia has denied any involvement after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday that an attempted coup d’etat is being planned in his country to take place next week.

Zelenskyy told reporters that Ukraine had uncovered a plot for an attempted coup and that Ukrainians and Russians were involved, The Washington Post reported. While he also spoke of a threat of military escalation from Russia, he fell short of accusing the Kremlin of an involvement in the planned coup, according to Reuters.

The Ukrainian President was not subtle in his statement, either.

“We have challenges not only from the Russian Federation and possible escalation – we have big internal challenges. I received information that a coup d’etat will take place in our country on Dec. 1-2,” Zelenskyy said, adding that his country was prepared for any escalation, Reuters reported.

While Putin and the Russians continue to deny their involvement, his reputation for mischief makes it all that much harder to take his rebukes seriously.
