NBC Interview blind sides Bill Clinton with Lewinsky questions

Adding another post for today… first time media takes on the Clintons.  Mika on Morning Joe thought it was time for the Clintons to go away. Good idea. Bill was out there spinning another book and thought he was in for an easy interview apparently. Enjoy the clip. I added Mika’s take on it.

 

Former President Bill Clinton insisted in a weekend interview that he doesn’t owe a personal apology to Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose adult life has been defined by their inappropriate sexual affair and the global scrutiny that followed.

‘No,’ he told NBC in an interview airing Monday on the ‘Today’ show. ‘I do not – I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry.’

‘I apologized to everybody in the world,’ Clinton said, implying that was enough.

And the flustered former president, more famous for his Don Juan-like seductions than for his policy legacy, portrayed himself, not Lewinsky, as history’s victim in the mass-media’s retelling of the 1990s saga.

Obama and Hillary’s right hand man Ben Rhodes joins NBC MSNBC as contributor

Isn’t this swell? We have Clapper and John Brennan as paid hacks for the networks. Now we have Ben Rhodes. Hillary’s right hand man for all things Hillary. This addition of Ben Rhodes to the very echo chamber he joked about has to be the worst of it. For some background FP post:

A stunning profile of Ben Rhodes – the asshole who is the Presidents foreign policy guru

 

The profile of one Ben Rhodes running in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine is not unsympathetic, which makes it all the more devastating.

Perhaps the key sentence is this: “His lack of conventional real-world experience of the kind that normally precedes responsibility for the fate of nations — like military or diplomatic service, or even a master’s degree in international relations, rather than creative writing — is still startling.”

 

Former top Barack Obama White House aide Ben Rhodes is joining MSNBC and NBC News as a political contributor.

MSNBC’s media relations team tweeted out the announcement Saturday, saying Rhodes would make his NBC debut on Sunday on “Meet The Press.”

Rhodes’ official title in the Obama administration was Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, and he played key roles in numerous foreign policy decisions. He took heat in 2016 when he boasted in a New York Times profile of creating an “echo chamber” to sell the Iran nuclear deal and mocked Washington, D.C., reporters.
