    Great interview. I'm glad the experience didn't destroy her. Hillary didn't have to leave Bill but she definitely should have helped and supported her. The fact she didn't speaks volumes about her character.

    Whether it's Monica Lewinski, or Stormy Daniels, I say, "who cares!?" We should not know, or care, what a man does in his private life, if he isn't hurting anybody.

    The people who destroyed Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton, are the same people who are ignoring all of the Trump scandals.

    the same shit for brains conservatives who were "morally outraged" by the clinton/lewinski affair defend donald trump. and most of them are evangelicals. which just goes to show you that religion and right wingers are complete hypocrites, and that religion has NOTHING to do with morality.

    jay leno deserved that, a right winger who literally made a living telling clinton/lewinski sex jokes. it was almost every night. and george w. bush getting selected by the supreme court didn't stop him, you thought well he'll stop with the clinton/lewinski jokes. nope, kept doing them until he retired. what a fucking hack.

    I had heard about Lewinski and some of the jokes like "oral office" but tbh, as a non-american, I couldn't even pretend to care. I felt like if anyone should have been held to a higher standard, it should be Clinton but it's not the type of story that I would be interested in anyways. However now, watching this interview, I'm starting to like and sympathise with her. She seems bright and friendly. I'm glad she managed to turn her experience into character strength instead of letting it destroy her.

    The problem is that it isn't public shaming. It is public destruction. We aren't teaching people lessons in hopes they get better. We are deleting them from our brains. Sadly, one very important word no longer has any meaning: "redemption".

    How did the media even catch wind of the aunt who was suing her nephew? I would have sued them back for lost wages. If her insurance didn't cover her injuries and the parents were fine with her using the home owners insurance to cover the rest so why the hell was this a problem to begin with, that is what home owners insurance is there for. This is when I lose respect for the media, learn the story before putting someone, especially a private citizen on blast. SMH. As for Monica I did feel that she got the worst of it and Bill got off very lightly, but even someone with half a brain would know how dangerous a position she got herself into, I mean the POTUS. If anything her story is now the ultimate cautionary tale to people who can find themselves in similar situations and for them to ask themselves, is this really worth it? Decisions have consequences, are you prepared for the fallout if the worst should happen???? Monica was railroaded, but I am truly surprised she survived this. She is forever stuck with this image but she is making it work, I have to hand it to her, she is strong.

    Completely disagree with the notation that good can spawn out of public shaming. Public shaming is based off opinions that we choose to be facts, where facts have substance from scientists and the public involvement. Public shaming is just bullying because you cannot get your way, and anything that involves bullying is wrong no matter how right you are in that issue. Darkness in Ignorance is lit by education and should not be delivered with shaming others. It is done by helping others to accept a fact through tolerance. When someone changes their view through there prerogative and willingness, it's meaningful and long lasting. Public shaming is childish and the results are temporary.

    I do not feel bad for Monica in the slightest. If you do not want to be publicly shamed, maybe don't f-ck a married president...If they weren't outed, she would probably still be Clinton's mistress and minus the remorse so spare me... I'm just saying.

    Here's the thing i think your video misses. If public shaming is used for good, who dictates whats good and bad? The reason Monica Lewinsky had it so bad, is because it was bipartisan and global. In retrospect, yes it was horrible, but if you would've taken a poll when it happened, I'm sure most of the public would've deemed it and "acceptable" use of public shaming.

    Lewinsky did wrong, but Clinton did colossally wrong. However, I am neither's moral superior, nor is anyone else. If a crime is committed, a court of law should determine the punishment. Regular citizens? GUIDE, please. Let's not pretend that taking part in a pile-on isn't a self-indulgence: Going after easy targets and letting fly is a thrill for the nastiest people. People should not be shaming others. The task of executioner ought to be a very uncomfortable one, not pleasurable. We're all human and prone to failing. We can only hope that our moment of poor judgment doesn't become public knowledge.

    • Kris Anticknap

      To clarify, Clinton should have faced actual punishment for that scandal, but no one seemed to want it badly enough because he was the "face" at that time. The scapegoat needed to be Lewinsky, because the scandal couldn't be denied and Clinton was not going to go down for it. This speaks to the danger of a powerful person being corrupt, regardless of whether or not he's your boy.

    Monica became the collateral damage of yet another Clinton scandal. She was a young woman that the married president took advantage of. He then proceeded in helping the narrative that she was the one at fault in the relationship to try and save his own skin when he got caught. Kudos to Monica for coming back out of the shadows and being a voice for such injustice as this. And shame on anyone who buys into a public shaming without finding out the facts behind a rumored story and piling on.

    At the time this trial began I was in college and followed news outlets and read the newspapers every day. Brilliant and stupid is probably the best description of this piece. I remember watching the same video footage of her following the president in crowds like a groupie at a rock concert. Then the infamous dress with...DNA evidence. Ken Starr knew what he was doing and took this girl down with the Clintons. I don't think she would have known the backlash she would get out of this and the cost, not only to taxpayers, but her reputation for the rest of her life. Good to see that she was capable of moving on. A couple of years ago I did read that she had her own line of handbags. Maybe all those who left positive comments on here could purchase one to show support.
