Bill Clinton: I don't owe Monica Lewinsky an apology

Bill Clinton says Barack Obama enjoyed favorable press coverage partly because of his race

Scott has already noted Bill Clinton's discomfort in being asked on the Today Show about Monica Lewinsky, which was supposed to be about the novel he has "co-written" with James Patterson.

NBC's Craig Melvin asked the former president if, given what he knows now, he would've handled his relationship with Lewinsky, a former White House intern, differently.

"I don't think it would be an issue because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts", he said.

Clinton added that he's tried to "do a good job since then" with his personal and professional life. "That's all I have to say to you".

Clinton also threw in special praise for Veep ("I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus"), Scandal and Netflix's House of Cards, but with a critical caveat.

"This is not the statement of accountability I wish he would've shown", said Jennifer Freyd, a professor of psychology at the University of OR who has written about the way perpetrators and institutions defend themselves against misconduct allegations.

He also said that while he has never apologised personally to her at the time, he had done so publicly: "I have apologised to the entire world". "I've never talked to her", he said when pressed on the point by Melvin. "That's very different. The apology was public", he said. Lewinsky herself recently wrote about the way she now sees the affair in light of Me Too. Scarborough believed Democrats desperately need the former president, while Brzezinski argued the party no longer needs him or Hillary Clinton, the 2016 nominee for president. Clinton asked Melvin. "Do you think President Johnson should have resigned?"

"No, I felt awful then", he said. "He said he was right in fighting the impeachment proceedings because the facts of his investigation don't fall in to the same category as other cases that have been spawned by the "#metoo" movement.

As for his affair with Lewinksy, Clinton told NBC, "this was litigated 20 years ago".

'I am in awe of the courage of women who've stood up and begun to confront entrenched beliefs and institutions.

Lewinsky wrote in a Vanity Fair essay this year that she "was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position".
