Monica Lewinsky didn’t pull any punches when it came to talking about Bill Clinton in Vanity Fair.
She also blasted the media …

From Vanity Fair:
Victim or Vixen? That’s a question as old as time immemorial: Madonna or Whore? Predator or Prey? Dressed scantily or appropriately? Is she telling the truth or lying? (Who will believe thee, Isabel?) And it’s a question that is still debated about women in general. And about me.
The debate over who gets to live in Victimville fascinates me, as a public person who has watched strangers discuss my own “victim” status at length on social media. The person at the epicenter of the experience doesn’t necessarily get to decide. No—society, like a Greek chorus, also has a say in this classification. (Whether we should or shouldn’t is a debate for another time.) And society will no doubt weigh in again on my classification—Victim or Vixen?—when people see a new docuseries I chose to participate in. (It’s titled The Clinton Affair. Bye-bye, Lewinsky scandal . . . I think 20 years is enough time to carry that mantle.)
Lewinsky, on Bill Clinton:
“If you want to know what power looks like, watch a man safely, even smugly, do interviews for decades, without ever worrying whether he will be asked the questions he doesn’t want to answer.” https://t.co/bdfHVL8onM

Pretty damn powerful.
That is as brutal a representation of our modern journalistic class as I've ever read.
And she's right. They only speak truth to power when it is the right party. https://t.co/g5CnwaoWbE

Exactly. If Bubba had been a Republican the media would have destroyed him BUT since he’s a Democrat he got a pass.
And still does get a pass. Heck, his wife RAN FOR PRESIDENT (and lost!).
Dr Ford is credible but Monica is not because she embarrasses Hillary – horrible double standard

Oh, and of course the Left is out in full force blaming Monica and claiming this is old news (all but proving Monica’s piece right). Look at these people.
Old News. Why aren't we focusing on the much worse crimes of the current occupant of Oval Office, who has besmirched it far more than Clinton? Lewinsky is finding her voice,25 yrs later. Fine. But don't let it be a distraction from the real problems going on in this country today

I know she was young but she did initiate the whole thing by liftng her skirt to show him her thong.

Her skirt was too short.
She was a willing participant who knew exactly what she was doing. She kept the dirty dress for God sakes. Who does that?? She needs to apologize to Hillary as did bill. Hillary was the only victim.
