If former President Bill Clinton was hoping to just regale media hosts who would coddle him by plugging his new book he is quickly discovering that he was badly mistaken.
The ex-degenerate in chief is getting a taste of life in the era of #MeToo and he isn’t liking it one bit. On Monday Bubba lost his cool during an interview on NBC’s “Today Show” over questions about the infamous sex scandal that erupted when he used a chubby young intern as a humidor.
It may have been over two decades since he also erupted all over that blue dress but the media is even more smutty in 2018 and let’s face it, that affair will be his enduring legacy.

The old finger wagging sex fiend whined about the unfairness of it all and that host Craig Melvin was only giving one side of the story which was vintage Clinton.

Via The Washington Free Beacon “Clinton Accuses Reporter of Giving One Side of the Facts When Asked About Monica Lewinsky”:
Former President Bill Clinton accused NBC reporter Craig Melvin of only giving one side of the facts when he asked questions about Clinton’s handling of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
“You are giving one side and omitting facts,” Clinton told Melvin during the interview which aired on “Today” on Monday.
Famed author James Patterson, who was there to promote a book that he co-wrote with the former president, intervened and said the scandal was 20 years ago and that it was time to stop talking about it.
“I think this thing—it’s 20 years ago, come on. Let’s talk about JFK. Let’s talk about—you know, LBJ. Stop already,” Patterson said.
Clinton questioned Melvin’s formulation of his questions.
“You think President Kennedy should resign? Do you believe President Johnson should resign? Someone should ask you these questions because of the way you formulate the questions. I dealt with it 20 years ago, plus, and the American people, two-thirds of them stayed with me,” Clinton said. “That’s all I have to say to you.”

He also denied that he owed Ms. Lewinsky an apology.

Melvin, speaking with Clinton on the “Today” show about the relationship in the context of the #MeToo movement, asked the former president if he ever apologized to Lewinsky.
“I apologized to everybody in the world,” Clinton said.
“But you didn’t apologize to her?” Melvin pressed.
The former president said that he does not feel like he owes Lewinsky an apology and that he “never talked to her.”
“But I did say, publicly, on more than one occasion, that I was sorry. That’s very different. The apology was public,” Clinton said.
In a way he has a point..
When Ms. Lewinsky made the personal choice to flirt with the sex maniac in chief – fully aware of his reputation of a horn dog and accused rapist – when she made the conscious decision to wear a thong and jiggle her pudgy ass cheeks at him, it was the equivalent of a matador waving a red cape at a bull and she knew damned well what she was getting into at the time.
Put it this way – she could have blown any one of millions of other men and there would have been no media circus and she wouldn’t be a celebrity today.
She’s not exactly a sympathetic character but neither is he. Where were the questions about Juanita Broaddrick?
