Bill Clinton: 'I Wouldn't' Handle Lewinsky Scandal Any Differently Today

CBS WennBill Clinton and James Patterson collaborated on fast-paced The President Is Missing

Just one day after Bill Clinton made tone-deaf remarks about the Monica Lewinsky scandal on the Today show, Stephen Colbert offered the former president an opportunity to re-answer the questions that got him in deserved hot water during the interview, which Clinton acknowledged wasn't his "finest hour".

A woman who accused then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton of rape expressed her outrage over the former president's recent comments during an NBC interview.

So when will Clinton finally face his #MeToo reckoning?

Clinton added that he paid a price - both politically and literally - for the affair, even though he remained in office.

Clinton responded to his critics Monday night during a joint appearance with co-author James Patterson at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City to promote their new novel, "The President Is Missing". "As a fiction writer, it's hard to keep up with- I mean, that's tough competition".

"Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction", Gillibrand said.

Whoever it was, they weren't as good as Allison Closs's date. "Plus, he treats me the way a woman should be treated". Later in the video Allison interviews her father about the plan, who is completely on board with the joke.

"The second is that I support the Me Too movement and think it is long overdue, and I have always tried to support it in the decisions and policies that I advanced", he said. Instead, Clinton defended his reaction and employed a strategy used by perpetrators of sexual harassment: painting themselves as a victim. "Beyond that, I think it would be good if we could go on with the discussion".

Clinton said he didn't like that particular interview because it "started with an assertion that basically I had never apologized".

Mr. Clinton insisted he isn't "surprised" when people bring up his affair with Lewinsky, and he said he "didn't like this one" because he felt it began with the assertion that he hadn't apologized and hadn't been held accountable, which he disputes.

"Well, to tell you the truth, you can't really have an appropriate consensual relationship with a 20-year-old intern in your office", Paul noted.

"People need to know I apologized".
