In a new Hulu documentary, former President Bill Clinton said he had sex with White House intern Monica Lewinsky to manage his “anxieties.”
“Here’s Something That Will Take Your Mind Off it for a While”
The four-part documentary, “Hillary,” focuses on the life of former Secretary of State, starting with her exploration into student politics and the Goldwater campaign, and finishing with her crushing defeat to President Donald Trump in 2016. The documentary also includes a close look into the affair that Bill Clinton had with Monica Lewinsky, his intern at the White House during his 2nd term in office – the affair, and his reaction to it, resulted in his impeachment, becoming only the 2nd President to be impeached.
Bill Clinton told the documentary team that having the affair with Lewinsky was his way of relieving stress and anxieties as the leader of the free world.
“You feel like you’re staggering around, you’ve been in a 15 round prize fight that was extended to 30 rounds and here’s something that will take your mind off it for a while, that’s what happens,” Bill said, adding:
Because there, whatever life – not just me. Everybody’s life has pressures and disappointments, terrors, fears of whatever. Things I did to manage my anxieties for years. I’m a different, totally different person than I was, a lot of that stuff 20 years ago… Maybe it’s just getting older but I hope it was also going through a lot of this. But whatever, what I did was bad but it wasn’t like – how can I think about the most stupid thing I could and do it. It’s not a defense, it’s an explanation. I feel awful.
I Don’t Sympathise With Clinton!
In an interview in 2018, fomer President Clinton refused to apologise to Lewinsky for the affair, but this time he came closer.
“I feel terrible about the fact that Monica Lewinsky’s life was defined by it, unfairly I think,” he told the documentary team. “Over the years I’ve watched her trying to get a normal life back again, but you’ve got to decide how to define normal.”
I’ll tell you something Bill – I don’t define cheating on my wife as “normal,” or something that will “take my mind off” work! I wonder if Juanitta Broderick was just a stress reliever too? This documentary is clearly trying to make people sympathise with someone who has had multiple women allege he sexually assaulted and abused them, not to mention the number of corruption allegations against both Bill and Hillary. He’s the same old sleazebag he was back decades ago, and we shouldn’t forget it!
