Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky spoke out Monday afternoon just hours after President Bill Clinton said he doesn’t “owe” her an apology; reposting an interview and thanking those that have helped her the “past 20 years.”
Lewinsky broke her silence on social media after the former President cold-heartedly reacted when pressed on the current ‘Me Too’ movement, saying he has never issued a personal apology to his intern and has no plans of doing so.
“grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years […] worth reposting this today from @VanityFair,” she tweeted.

President Clinton found himself in hot water among Democrats and other ‘Me Too’ supporters this week after he refused to comment on the possible apology, adding he had settled the matter 20 years ago when he said he was sorry to “everybody.”
BILL TOO? Clinton Says He DOESN'T Owe Monica Lewinsky an Apology
Former President Bill Clinton shocked Democrats and other ‘Me Too’ advocates across the country Monday, saying he doesn’t owe Monica Lewinsky a personal apology and has no plans to say “he’s sorry” to his White House intern.
According to the New York Post, Clinton was speaking with NBC’s ‘Today’ Show when he was asked to comment on the current movement sweeping the entertainment and political world in recent months; saying he’s “never talked” to Lewinsky after their secret affair rocked the world back in 1998.

“I apologized to everybody in the world,” Clinton said.
The former President pushed back when asked if he plans to personally apologize to the former intern, saying “I do not.”
“I’ve 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,” he added.
Clinton deflected further when asked if the modern political climate would have forced him to resign from office had the scandal taken place today.
“Well, I don’t think it would be an issue. Because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts. If the facts were the same today, I wouldn’t,” he added.

HELL FREEZES OVER: ‘The View’ TRASHES HILLARY, Calls Bill Sexually ‘ABUSIVE’
The hosts at ABC’s ‘The View’ had a brief moment of sanity during their panel discussion Monday morning, slamming Bill Clinton as a sexual “abuser” and labeling Hillary a political “virus” ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
“If you’re talking about inequality of power, that’s the biggie. The intern and the President,” said Joy Behar. “It haunts him to this day. Have you seen him lately talking with this ‘Me Too’ thing? He can’t stump for Democrats easily.”
“Going forward for Democrats, I do think this scandal and Hillary’s role in the bimbo eruptions really hurt her. I would just leave the Clintons as far out of 2020 as possible if I were a Democrat,” added co-host Meghan McCain.
“I think the Democratic Party has to reconcile that the Clintons are a virus that is going to continue to hurt you in elections going forward and these conversations about Monica Lewinsky are never going to go away,” she added.
