    SooooOOOOoo Dick-structive - Monica Lewinsky. .

    Oh and the power of sucking a powerful mans dick. Makes Monica Lewinsky, still relative in 2019

    She also had an affair with her former married high school teacher and bragged about it so her credibility was questioned. Check the net.

    I just adore her (Monica)! That's a Wonder Woman. Bill should have had to endure commensurately the same results - it took two, and one was in a much bigger power position (intimidating - it's the dang pressie). I don't think his fees for his appearances are commensurate with Ms. Wonder Woman Lewinsky's! THAT is a shame, a public shame!

    omfg, that interview was worse than watching Piers Morgan. Way to softball her, although what can you expect she's the anti-bullying mascot. But she then goes on to endorse some vague mob-rule system of determining and shaming individuals we 'mostly' agree are objectionable. "Oh yeah public shaming is awful and it needs to stop but we DO need some sort of mechanism to...y'know...broadcast a widely held opinion about a particular person, by scrutinizing their lives and judging their past decisions. uuuuhhhh well, not just anyone I mean just politically affiliated people...UUHHHH, I mean elected officials, specifically, of course. Just NOT ME!. Other people."

    Wow Monica Lewinsky has really surprised me recently. I admit I've made some jokes at her expense but anyone who could survive and endure the bullshit she did is surely a stronger person than me.

    Ok so the president of the united states at that time was married, she also could have stayed out the spot light and she is not fighting for peace she is fight to be able to do a awful thing and not be judge for it or be responsible for her part. not once has she came out an apollogize for sexaul activities with a man she knew was married. I do agree that the internet doesnt let anything go but she still should know it was partially self inflicted and there is always a consequence . I have yet to see this type of segment done for people who are put in jail, lynched , and/or died by the hands of the government . she got off easy for helping to disrupt our executive branch of government.

      In addition to what you said, she claims it was a secist attack (around 21:10). She slept with a married man, both parties were guilty, she's just a dumb slut that did something stupid and refused to own up to it.

    I love John Oliver's interviews. He never looks for someone just because they're famous or controversial, but he talks to people who matter in regards to the rest of his pieces.

    What does she mean by "allowed to talk to my friends."?

  • TheDubstepAddict

    I wonder how many of the people sitting in the audience or in front of their screens rn used to slutshame and laugh at her back in the day... i wasnt alive back then, but many of you must have been.

    Midnite Matinee Day ago

    Honestly props to Family Guy and South Park back in the day for putting the spotlight on Bill Clinton instead of Monica Lewinsky. I don't know if they did it on purpose or not but those shows' audiences were like 12-16 year olds and exposing them to the other side of the scandal really must have left an impression on a lot of kids. I know I was one of them. I seriously grew up not even knowing what Monica looked like and didn't even learn her name until I heard the famous "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky" quote from Clinton.

    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 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.

  • Azrael2812

    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.

    Also, about Monica Lewinsky, public shaming was not even on the radar after 1 week. She was publicly executed with more than just public shaming. Capitalism had a big row, and maybe Hilary.

  • Alexzandro Rivera
    Alexzandro Rivera 6 days ago

    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 have always thought that the Monica Lewinsky was really not a thing and was overtly covered, Ken Starr and his henchmen/women was a shit storm of assholes.

    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.

  • Justin Suerken
    Justin Suerken 8 days ago

    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
      Kris Anticknap 8 days ago

      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.
