Her recovery from all that bullshiat is just amazing.

Yeah, she is good.

There's one where someone asked about the worst advice you've ever been given.

And her response was along the lines of "apply for a white house internship. It'll look great on a resume"

Okay, I think she has to be the front-runner on this one.  But only because Jennifer Strange can't submit hers.

Monica Lewinsky blew the president of the United States because she thought he would fall in love with her and leave his wife. Lewinsky is no victim, just a glutton for attention. Why else would she keep dragging up an old scandal when most people would just get on with their lives? It's amazing that so many people keep buying her act.

She listened when someone said "Come in here, big girl, have a cigar"

Jokes, aside -- It's good to see her re-emergence on her own terms these last few years.

Nice you can take a break from excusing genocide to take some quality slut shaming.

educated: She is amazing.

She said explicitly in her recordings to Tripp that she was looking for fame, excited over the possibility of becoming like Oprah if I remember correctly which was why she kept evidence of the relationship. It certainly sucks how dramatically sexist the press was to her for years, but there was no way she could predict how that reveal would go (which she had planned to do herself in the future but the conservative Tripp did first because conservatives are assholes).

Not to mention, this was the same press that forced Hillary to add Bill's last name to hers. She was just Rodham at the time and became Rodham-Clinton after attacks by the press about her capability as a wife.

How could anyone actually believe the Monica/Bill relationship would go well for the woman (especially back then) and turn into a lucrative career is beyond me.

Alternate take:  unless she changed her name and probably appearance, that was going to follow her until the day that she died.  Now, maybe not in the papers.  Maybe just at every job she was ever at; every store clerk that processed her credit card, every doctor's office she ever went to, etc.  So, you know what?  If rather than being forced to go to witness protection to avoid that, she's decided to at least own it?  Good for her.

Probably doesn't help that she has a relatively distinctive name. If she was Barb Smith, it would have been a lot easier to fade into obscurity if she wanted.

How many people would remember her more than 20 years after the events? There's a whole generation of adults that would never have heard of her if she didn't demand attention.

That was awesome. The interview with John Oliver was pretty incisive. She's got guts to come back from that.
 
2021-05-21 1:14:47 PM  
I will admit, I had a pretty low opinion of her when the scandal broke- deliberately chasing after someone who is married is a scumbag move in my book.  But I also didn't like the way Bill Clinton threw her under the bus to cover his ass- it takes two to tango.  I will also say I respect how Lewinsky survived cyberbullying hell.

/but MeToo does not apply to her

Her farking brain wasn't even done developing. She thought childish fantasies about her future because her brain wasn't done developing.  That's what it means to be young and dumb.

She most certainly was taken advantage of by the most powerful man in the world who destroyed her future and overall just farking 2 shades shy of rape.

I get it, incels will always blame the women. But here that women was barely more than a child in a relationship with an experienced educated rich and one of the most powerful men who have ever lived.  So maybe y'all incels can just stfu for once.

I was disgusted with Bill Clinton, why he couldn't just come out and admit he was having an affair, retreating into the lawyer armor that eventually got him disbarred.

But of course, all that pales in comparison to the waste of resources the Republicans were doing with the Whitewater "Investigation" and then using the affair as a weapon.

For real?  Her name is distinctive.  Damn near EVERYBODY who paid attention in 1999 would remember. And the millennials who don't?  Yeah, they'd hear it from their older coworkers.  "Hey, why are you guys always making snide comments about Monica.  OH.  No kidding?!  Wow."  She's never living that down.  Yes, it may fade with time.  But it will never go away.

She was 23? 24?  At some point you need to adult-up.  I think it's unfair that she got far more crap than Bill Clinton did, but this wasn't her first rodeo.
