Bill Clinton Apologizes For His Controversial "Today Show" Interview
Bill Clinton sat down with Stephen Colbert to hawk his upcoming novel The President is Missing, co-written with James Patterson. Of course, the late night host decided to bring up his highly contested interview on Today, which showcased the former diplomat as particularly unapologetic about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and the #MeToo movement as a whole.
In response, Clinton admits that "when I saw the interview, I thought that and it looked like I was saying I didn't apologize and I had no intention to and I was mad at me." He continues to note how his comments did not represent his "finest hour," and has begun to reconsider his controversial statements. "That was a very painful thing that happened 20 years ago," Clinton remarked. "I apologize to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family, to the American people. I meant it then and I mean it now. I've had to live with the consequences every day since."
Clinton also reveals how "this #MeToo movement is long overdue, necessary, and should be supported . . . I'd like to think that we're all getting better as we go along."
