Hume: The #MeToo Movement Was Bound To Be Embarrassing to Bill Clinton Given Predatory Behavior
CLINTON: "I’ve never talked to her, but I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I’m sorry. That’s very different. The apology was public. ... I dealt with it 20 years ago plus. And the American people 2/3 of them stayed with me and I have tried to do a good job since then with my life and with my work."
SMITH: "Former President Bill Clinton facing a #MeToo moment as he responds to questions about his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Brit Hume is Fox News senior political analyst and he joins us this morning. Brit, good morning to you."
HUME: "Thanks Sandra."
SMITH: "That was quite an exchange there. Just wondering your thoughts as you looked on in the middle of this #MeToo movement and the former president really rejecting criticism over that entire scandal."
HUME: "Well I think Sandra something like that eventually was bound to happen if Mr. Clinton was going to put himself out in public and be interviewed as he is doing on a book tour now. Because the #MeToo movement would be uncomfortable for him given his long history of predatory behavior with women, exemplified most conspicuously by the Monica Lewinsky case. So I think he was bound to face something like that and as you can see he did the best he could. But the #MeToo movement was bound to be embarrassing to him."
