Bill Clinton defends his behavior amid #MeToo movement
President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton have each damaged the office of president in their own ways

"They had to distill it, and it looked like I was saying I didn't apologize and I had no intention to, and I was mad at me", Clinton told the comedian.
"When I first met Bill Clinton, it was when I was sent on my first story by myself after my training with my cameraman", she said. Clinton's answer was a mix of parsing the question (he was annoyed that Melvin implied that he'd never apologized to Lewinsky, which he did, though not in person) and a pivoting to his message of general support for #MeToo without implicating himself in any way.
Clinton also tried to deflect by claiming the sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump are not taken seriously "I think partly because they're frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don't seem to care", while maintaining "I think I did the right thing".
Clinton said he didn't mind being asked about it before, but resented Melvin's questions "because it started with an assertion that basically I had never apologized". He went on to say that the Todayinterview "wasn't my finest hour" but that the #MeToo movement is "long overdue, necessary, and should be supported". "I meant it then, I meant it now", he added.
As of Wednesday morning, Lewinsky has not commented directly on Clinton's interview.

Bill Clinton insists he doesn't owe Monica Lewinsky, the young White House intern he had an affair with, a personal apology.
"It shows you as to why people don't really want him around", she said.
"I just want to say about Monica Lewinsky, I know her - not well - but I want to remind people that to get a job at a young age as an intern in the White House, you have to be an exceptional human being", she continued. And is there hypocrisy when people on the left give Clinton a pass for Monica Lewinsky but are "upset" that President Trump allegedly was with Stormy Daniels and vice verse? "So I just don't think it's that different from Trump supporters".
Co-author James Patterson might be having second thoughts, as well, though when you invite Bill Clinton as a writing partner you have to know he's going to take over, one way or the other, even when that book is titled "The President Is Missing". So expect Bill Clinton to be the invisible man on the campaign trail, as nervous Democrats who want to offer fresh ideas show little interest in half-hearted apologies from a tainted surrogate.
