    This unprecedented Monica Lewinsky interview by John Oliver just shows how great of a guy he is. While every other comedian particularly the biggest douchebag of the 90s in Jay Leno couldn’t stop slut-shaming a single 22 yr old woman, Monica Lewinsky even though Bill Clinton was clearly the bigger slut since he was married and he was much older...John Oliver understands the hypocrisy with our society and the excessive damage of public shaming. Most of the comedians mocking Lewinsky sleep with countless people themselves yet because their personal life isn’t in the spotlight...they can get away with their own slitting. Jay Leno is a perfect example of this. Slut-shaming Monica was like Jay Leno being the pot calling the kettle black. How many mistresses and hookers did he fuck in his time throughout the 90s to have the audacity to mock Monica. It’s because Jay Leno is an unbelievable douchebag. John Oliver didn’t really want to attack him hard since he’s retired but Jay Leno belongs to the Good Ol Boys club...same age group as Bill Clinton which is why he related to Clinton and constantly slut-shamed Monica. Really one of the ugliest public shamings in American history.

    Public shaming will always exist because we all have this inherent torch and pitchfork mob mentality. Shaming a and person makes our miserable lives feel a little better because misery loves company. Even though public shaming does nothing to better yourself, we all feel it’s a productive form of leisure and expression. People have a bunch of rage and anger built inside for being wronged by society in some way. It’s those same people that are first to lead the public shaming mob. It’s highly counter productive even though people believe they are merely bringing to light a shameful human being. Most people who issue death threats and have extreme hatred for a person they don’t’s usally because they have their own personal demons as a result of being unfulfilled. I can attest to all of this.

    When this story broke its known that Hillary took Bill into another room and SLAPPED him across his face not because he cheated on her but because he publically got caught. I know she was a young impressionable girl but blowing Clinton??? Ugh. Always thought he was butt ass ugly. Now Pence is another story. I'd def get down with him. Best looking politician since Kennedy.

    Am I missing something from this story? Weren't her and the president both consenting adults? Isn't it their business whatever they did or didn't? Why would a whole country concern itself with something so unimportant

    i'm sorry but rich girl tries to land a powerful married man and it backfired. I find it hard to care. had it not come out would she not have continued the affair? I don't agree with buying but usually the person being bullied didn't willingly put themselves in that position. I'll save my sympathy

    I always felt for Monica Lewinsky. It was Bill Clinton who did something wrong. She was just a normal girl who was enamored by his stardom and charisma. Any woman in her position would have been flattered by his attention. It's really an indictment of a patriarchal culture that lets men off the hook for (almost) any sexual deviance. And no, I'm not a feminazi. I'm jus'sayin' - why blame her and make excuses for him?

  • Joshua Willinsky

    Why is everyone here defending Monica? She slept with a married man, that man being the President!?!?!? You literally were asking for your private life to be destroyed. This isnt a case of non consensual sex, she was a willing partner???

      I think you are missing the point. Was Bill Clinton shamed on the same level as Monica Lewinsky? No. He wasn't. That points out the hypocrisy of the situation.

    Despite the whole country giving her shit, Monica strove on through. That takes big balls, yo. Good on you, Monica, for being made of such sturdy stuff. I'm definitely not that tough myself; I get panic attacks when I think about how I'm gonna talk to the librarian when I have to return a book that's late.

    From my experience: people tend to use the person (accused of doing "the bad thing") as a representative of a group of similar people that've hurt them in the past. That's why trump doesn't get as much attention (of that kind) as someone who could be seen as: a home wrecker, malevolent family member or someone most people would relate to not liking.
    It's simply mob mentality

    Both Monica Lewinsky and Harvey Weinstein are amazingly strong people for enduring the public's vicious shamings, and should serve as role models and heroes for us all.

    I feel like what’s worse is that Hillary said she’s a feminist but didn’t blame her husband, and then let the media flame the shit out of a very young woman

      Craig Simpson defend? No, but the woman was 22 years old and an intern. She could have said “okay my husband sucks and this young woman made an awful mistake that hurt my family” but instead she acted like Bill was an innocent party and Monica was lecherous when in fact he was a grown man, married, and the president

      Ellie A aw you’re so nice lol and yeah I think if she had left bill, I probably would have identified more with her. Then she would have been a better role model to young girls that women should stick together and not stay with cheaters

    • Ellie A

      I wonder if she would have took a stand then, left bill... what her life would be now. Who she would be. Maybe someone i would vote for and be proud she was our first female president (no political agenda here!! Independent thinker here. You sparked something when I read your comment. I needed it. Gratitude !)

    LOL I honestly still have 0 sympathy for Lewinsky. She did it to herself. Somehow "amazed" by media coverage, omg! A psycho keeps the dress and goes public. That's why people hate her. Not the act, it was the gross way she handled it, then she victimized herself to the nth degree for being called out...
