Clinton: ‘Norms have changed for what you can do to somebody against their will’

 

While the events of the day have overtaken Bill Clinton’s latest view on the #Me Two Movement and the removal of Al Franken – supporting Franken in the full interview, this one tidbit below should not go without notice. The unhappy looking sidekick in the form of the real author of the so called Clinton novel, flails desperately at times to bail out his Kemosabe. The Lone Ranger rides again.

 

 

It’s probably time for Bill Clinton to stop doing interviews.

The former president has come under fire once again for comments he made during a recent sit-down — this time noting how “norms have changed in terms of what you can do to somebody against their will.”

Clinton made the controversial statement while speaking to PBS Newshour about the resignation of former Senator Al Franken last year following his sexual misconduct scandal.

“I assume you think that what happened with you was more serious than what happened with [Franken],” host Judy Woodruff asked Clinton. “He was driven from office, from the US Senate. So, norms have changed. Do you think that’s a good thing?”

“Well, in general, I think it’s a good thing, yes,” replied the former president.

“I think it’s a good thing that we should all have higher standards,” he said. “I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work.”

Clinton added, “You don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good.”

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.

 

 

Bill Clinton’s false lies and deceit. The deposition.

Yes, Hillary wants to take the high road. Indeed. How easy to forget the long nightmare of the 1990’s when we went through the Bill Clinton escapades. The blue dress. What the meaning of “is’ “is.” A normal person would want to crawl under a rock. But no. Probably America is going to put this Riff Raff back in the WH. Trump used words. Clinton? A cigar at the least. The entire deposition is out there on You Tube.

In November 1995, US President Bill Clinton infamously began an affair with 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

For the next year and a half, America’s 42nd president would engage in a dozen sexual encounters with Lewinsky, most of which took place in the Oval Office.

And while the nation wouldn’t find out about President Clinton’s scandal until January 1998, White House staff “witnessed the fallout from the affair.

In the course of his deposition, the president finally conceded after years of denial that he once had sex with Gennifer Flowers, a former news reporter and state employee, in his days as governor of Arkansas.

But he maintained his denial of allegations that he had recklessly groped a White House volunteer, Kathleen Willey, or had engaged in a consensual affair with a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.
