After former President Bill Clinton angrily responded to questioning about his former mistress Monica Lewinsky Monday, the public outcry led him to attempt to clarify his comments at a later event.
Here’s what he said
Clinton was promoting his new book at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture Monday evening when he addressed the furor over his earlier comments.
“The truth is, the hubbub was I got hot under the collar,” Clinton explained. “Because of the way the questions were asked, and I think what was lost are the two points that I made, that are important to me.”
“The suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me twenty years ago,” he continued. “So first point is, I did.”
“I live with it all the time”
“I meant it then, and I meant it now,” he said. “I apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family, and to the American people. Before a panel of ministers in the White House, which was widely reported, so I was, I did that. I meant it then, and I mean it today. I live with it all the time.”
“The second is, that I support the ‘Me Too’ movement, and I think it’s long overdue,” he added. “And I have always tried to support it in the decisions and policies that I have advanced.”
Watch the CNN video report on Clinton’s second comment:
Keith Boykin, former White House aide to Clinton, said on CNN that the former president needed to apologize to Monica Lewinsky, and he listed off the three times he hurt democratic presidential candidates.
“I’ve tried to do a good job since then”
In the earlier interview, Clinton protested that he didn’t owe Monica Lewinsky an apology, leading many to condemn the former president. As noted by CNN Erin Burnett, Clinton doubled down in his clarification by saying that he had already apologized publicly.
“I dealt with it 20 years ago. And the American people, two-thirds of them, stayed with me,” Clinton said. “And I’ve tried to do a good job since then with my life and with my work. That’s all I have to say to you.”

Sunday on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” longtime Clinton confidant and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) said former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did “a horrible thing” in the way they attacked former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who had an affair with Bill Clinton. Partial transcript as follows: HUNT: Given what we know now and the way this movement has unfolded, should Bill Clinton have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal? MCAULIFFE: This was 25 years ago, it was difficult—different standards. I think people looked at it in totality. HUNT: Why were they different standards? MCAULIFFE: I’m saying at the time we dealt with this 25 years ago, it wasn’t the standards we have today. I think if it happened today, I don’t think you’d be having the same argument that would go on with the new #MeToo movement. But 25 years ago, as I say, it was a different standard. HUNT: Do you think the Clintons victimized Monica Lewinsky in that, do you think the way they dealt with her would be tolerable today? MCAULIFFE: No, I don’t. I think it was a horrible thing 25 years ago. As you know, we’re very good friends. I told the
