Monica Lewinsky cuts trail and runs after an interviewer asks her an intimate question about Bill Clinton. Oddly enough, the once famous Clinton White House intern was in Isreal giving a speech about the pros and cons on the internet – of all things.
Let me just apologize in advance for my sarcasm here, but how could she seriously believe her relationship with Bill Clinton wasn’t going to get brought up?
Lewinsky, who gained notoriety in the 1990s over her sexual relationship with Clinton, was at a conference hosted by the Israel Television News Company, and speaking on the pros and cons of the internet, The Daily Wire reported.
This was the question:
“Recently in an interview with NBC News, former President Clinton was rather irate when he was asked if he ever apologized to you personally,” news anchor Yonit Levi said. “Do you still expect that apology, the personal apology?”
“I’m so sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this,” Lewinsky replied as she stood up and walked off stage.
Behind the stage, Levi could be heard saying, “Sorry Monica, I didn’t think it was insulting.”
According to Haaretz, the interview took place at a conference organized by the Israel Television News Company, where Lewinsky delivered a speech.
Lewinsky later commented on her walk out in a Twitter post, saying the question was presented to her by Levi the day prior, and that she rejected it.
“When she asked me it on stage, with blatant disregard for our agreement, it became clear to me I had been misled,” she wrote. “I left because it is more important than ever for women to stand up for themselves and not allow others to control their narrative.”
She concluded by apologizing to the crowd for ending the talk in such a way.
Monica also didn’t appreciate the exact verbiage the media used when covering her little blowout. She insisted on Twitter that she didn’t ‘storm off stage’, but her definition of storming-out is obviously different than the rest of the worlds.
stormed? not quite. politely said i was leaving? yes. walked as fast as i could off stage in heels? yes.
But isn’t that sort of what ‘stormed’ off stage means? Would it be better if we called it the brisk walk out of shame? Would she even have been in Isreal talking about the internet’s ‘pros and cons’ if it wasn’t for the ‘work’ she did as an intern in the oval office?
Speaking of, the Clinton’s are currently hiring for interns but this time they’re expected to work for free. I wonder if that is some sort of loophole or maybe they’re just that cheap?
