The former House Speaker says Clinton appears to have lost his swing since Hillary's loss and should have been better prepared for tough questions about his past and the #metoo movement. "Well", Clinton said with a sparkle in his eye, "2016 you had Vladimir up in there", phrasing that tickled Colbert with its first-name familiarity. "Because they had to distill and it looked like I was saying, 'I didn't apologize and I had no intention to.' And I was mad at me".
Adding "It wasn't my finest hour", Clinton clarified that he did and does feel apologetic toward Lewinsky and the American public. "That was a very painful thing that happened 20 years ago", he said.
Clinton said he has been asked about Lewinsky a number of times recently in light of #MeToo - a discussion he supports - but felt Craig Melvin's approach was different in this interview. Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie also discussed the incident with Melvin on air, mentioning Clinton's "false allegations" about the interview. "I believe that set the bar very low, so when we hear that Trump is grabbing women, doing this and he's got porn stars and what have you, everyone's like, we've heard this before". "You're talking about someone who said in 1998, I care about being pro-choice, and I'll let this go".
More broadly, he said he is supportive of the #MeToo movement writ large even as he expressed skepticism over certain aspects of it. "I meant it then; I mean it now".
Lewinsky, following years in relative hiding after she became a national fascination for her affair with Clinton, re-emerged into the national conversation in 2014 as a contributing writer for Vanity Fair.
In another appearance on Tuesday, at a New York Times event, Clinton added a dose of condescension to his criticism of Melvin.
Behar explained that Clinton's situation was more complicated, because his conduct wasn't as widely disgraceful.
Lewinsky, who has not publicly replied to Clinton's NBC interview, did reply to fans sharing Notaro's words with her on Twitter. 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?
"It shows you as to why people don't really want him around", she said.
"Now, at 44, I'm beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern", she wrote.
