In an interview which aired during the “Today Show” on Monday, Bill Clinton gave an answer to a question about apologizing to Monica Lewinsky that was heavily criticized because the former president again played the victim. Very Clinton-esque!
How disastrous was Clinton’s response in the “Today Show” interview? It was so bad that Stephen Colbert gave him a do-over, and Clinton yet again played the victim. Watch:

A zebra can’t change its stripes, and Bill Clinton can’t change being Bill Clinton.
.@BillClinton gets a do-over and talks about how painful the Lewinsky scandal was ***for him***. Yet again the Clintons turn themselves into victims. Dude. You were POTUS, you committed adultery with & took advantage of an intern in the Oval Office, and you lied under oath. GTFO. https://t.co/S9jSq68aG3

And hey, Colbert would have given a Republican a similar shot at redemption too, right? *Eye roll*
Comedy's about truth to power. https://t.co/vMAu3qHKwE
