Hillary Clinton has made another attempt to absolve her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of any responsibility in his scandalous affair with Monica Lewinsky.
According to Mrs. Clinton, Lewinsky was an adult when they were having an affair and so her husband did nothing bad, RT is reporting.
The former presidential aspirant said this during her sit-down with CBS’ Sunday Morning anchor Tony Dokoupil, after she was asked her about Bill Clinton’s 1990s affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
The then-president had lied under oath that he had no sexual relationship with Lewinsky, and the scandal eventually led to impeachment procedures, but Clinton was acquitted in the end. Hillary defended her husband throughout the drama and even dismissed it as a “right-wing conspiracy.”
It turned out to be true, and now Hillary Clinton changes tune and says she believes her husband did nothing wrong.. And asked whether he should have stepped down, she said, “Absolutely not.”
When her interview argued that the affair can be seen as an abuse of power for the sheer imbalance of said power between the US president and an intern, Mrs. Clinton responded that Lewinsky was “an adult,” before cutting the line of questioning.
This comes amid the wave of the #MeToo movement.
Here’s what folks think of her statement:
Every word that Hillary Clinton utters publicly creates one more Republican voter this November.
Every single word. Keep it up Hillary.

WTF Hillary? Like I understand you are ride or die b*tch but damn come tf on! A president compared to a 22 year old intern is literally the definition of power abuse. One is power FULL and the other power LESS #HillaryClinton https://t.co/w1s0p7TI5j

With every passing day, Hillary Clinton proves she is a shittier human than even I think.
If this is the standard bearer for the @DNC we should lose every election for the next decade.
If she has this little awareness, values, morality, or humanity, I’m so glad she’s not POTUS https://t.co/KAP8O9wTaz
