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.

TOO SWEET: These Seventh Graders Saved Their Money for Amazing Act of Chivalry on Valentine’s Day

Published

They say that chivalry is dead, but I say we’ve got hope in the next generation.

In a world where simple acts of gentlemanliness are often denounced as “patriarchal” and gender is supposedly a social construct, it is great to see men and boys unswayed by silly modern notions and going out of their way to be chivalrous.

A boy named Tristian Valentine teamed up with two of his friends to buy 300 pink carnations to pass out to all the girls and female staff at their school on Valentine’s Day so that none of them would be without a gift.

“He wanted every young lady to feel special that day and accepted,” Principal Sarah Guerrero, who happily approved the plan when the boys asked for permission, told USA Today.

Western Journal has more:

After getting the go-ahead, Valentine rallied the troops, which included 6th grader Lincoln Holmes and 7th grader Kyan Rice. Together, the three of them pooled their cash and earned enough to buy several hundred pink carnations, ensuring no one would be left out.

“We wanted every girl to feel important and special on Valentine’s Day,” their ringleader, Valentine, told KMBC. “We worked hard to make sure it was going to be a surprise to everybody. I only told a few friends, and the girls seemed surprised and happy.”

“I got chills seeing it happen,” the principal added. “The ladies were so excited. It gives them something to look up to and feel good about themselves. It’s also what makes Summit Trail special.”

“I donated $100 of my own money,” 7th grader Rice said. “I had the money from soccer refereeing. Tristan and his mom got the flowers Wednesday and brought them to school today. Lincoln and I got here early, and we started handing them out.”

Too sweet!

Film Industry Expert Explains How Christians Can Engage the Culture Through Film (and Why We Should)

Published

on

By

We live in an era when Hollywood couldn’t be more opposed to Christianity.

The silver screen is often wrought with violence, sex, scandal, and worldly ideology, not to mention rhetoric that is starkly opposed to that of the teachings in the Lord’s Word.

On top of all that, Hollywood has a history of crudely twisting biblical themes…let’s not get started on the “Noah” movie or last year’s “Mother.”

In spite of all this, however, Stephan Schultze, the executive director of the cinematic arts department at Liberty University, recently explained in an interview with The Christian Post why it is more important than ever for Christians to use film to spread the Gospel.

And that, as he knows from personal experience, it’s entirely possible for Christians to get involved in the film industry because of the Gospel.

“[The film industry] has great potential to shape culture,” Schultze explains, explaining that filmmakers are creatively obliged to be mindful of the worldview their work presents.

“But it can go awry and in the wrong direction and affect culture in an inappropriate way…filmmakers design and create content that drives traffic to their movie in order to make the next movie. When the film industry is least healthy, it’s driving traffic in a way that’s unproductive for us to engage in conversation and to care about one another, or it’s successfully violent and dehumanizes what it’s like to be a human.”

As an active industry professional, Schultze speaks from experience. He’s contributed to projects directed by Hollywood legends James Cameron Ron Underwood, as well as worked in every facet of the film industry from major motion films, television, music videos, commercials, industrial videos, and countless independent films.

In the many decades that his vast experience has spanned, Schultze says there is one vital truth he has learned: whatever your role in the film industry may be, your outward behavior plays a big role in the outcome of the project you’re involved with, which gives Christians an amazing tool with which to impact the culture and share the life-changing message of the Gospel.

“At the end of the day in the film industry, you attract what you’re like. If you’re kind, you attract people who want to work with you,” he says. “If you’re quick to anger, if you’re cavalier in your personal life, and you bring that onto a set, that it is what you end up with at the end of the day.”

“If you’re someone of the faith, how you demonstrate your faith…when it’s really hard, when you’re really pushing through a difficult moment…it’ll reflect extremely well in your opportunity to have someone say, ‘Wow, you’re different, what’s different about you?’” he continues.

“That’s what we try to emulate,” he continues. “We tell our students, ‘You have this great opportunity, and it’ll show up when it’s the hardest day you ever had, and that’s the day you can’t let that down. That’s the day you’ve got to push forward in a way that separates you from the pack.’”

This is certainly advice that applies to any industry. The Bible admonishes us to do everything we do unto the Lord (Col 3:23-24), so whether we scrub toilets or direct blockbuster films, in trials and challenges, by hard work, perserverence, and everyday kindess, we have an endless supply of opportunities to let Christ’s light shine through us.

Praise Him!
