My thoughts on the Clinton affair: Linda Tripp is the one who caused most trauma to Monica.

Linda Tripp, befriended her, used her to get at BC. Linda Tripp called the FBI and set the trap for Monica to be questioned by them. This is what had her so frightened. The media has and will continue to give Linda Tripp and Ken Star a pass in this entire sorry affair. I don't believe that Bill or Hillary went after Monica.

Hillary making comments as any other woman might have about an extramarital affair by her husband was not unusual.
Hillary was criticized for "staying" with Bill but who are we to judge the toll the entire incident took on their lives and family relationships. It will all be chalked up to "political ambition" that they stayed together...but I look at their lovely daughter and think otherwise. You can absolutely love your spouse and still be either the victim or perpetrator of an affair...speaking as one on both sides of the spectrum.

I can forgive just about anything if you are willing to take your justice and make amends that are due.

But a bold faced lie when it was obvious it was a lie.

And especially when he wagged that finger.

That was a complete breach of trust.

Trump, however, has been accused of sexually preying on minors and inappropriately sexually touching women without consent. That's not the same thing as consenting adults. I don't care if he has affairs with consenting women. If the women want to blab to the media or write a book about it, that's his problem.

40. Bill Clinton...22 million jobs. I remember the 90's well.

Bill is a far cry from a russian who cheated his whole life. His affairs point to his pattern of other wrong doing. Therefore, in my mind, relevant to the issue. Bill cares about his country first. Monica wasn't 'paid off' until she endlessly played the victim for her own choice. Linda Tripp certainly was the problem. Pres B Clinton got a female version of R Stone'd...L Tripp.
Neither of them were good, but, there's a big difference. Pres B Clinton is my hero. The 90s were good to me. He did a LOT for this country. The russian, has decimated our honor. Big big difference.
Plus Bill had the balls enough to go under oath. Unlike any Bush, Cheney, Red Ivan trum, or anyone else. I gotta hand it to him for that.

Paying hush money to silence women during a campaign is not.
Preying on underage girls is not.
Paying for 8 abortions while being an anti abortion advocate and seating the most antiabortion Supreme Court in 100 years is not.
Bragging about sexual assault is not.

I’m sure I’m forgetting some other affronts in his pursuit of women.

13. I don't think any response is "proper."

 

That woman did not violate any covenant with the wife, the husband did that. There was no covenant between the two women. The covenant was between the man and his wife, and the man broke it. The wife's anger should be directed at the husband who violated her trust, not at the woman he did it with.

The "other woman" is certainly not the wife's friend, but nor is she the one who wronged the wife. She had no duty to the wife, and therefor violated none.

The "other woman" had a duty to society, a duty to respect boundaries, and certainly should suffer some disrespect from all of us as a result of failing to follow that duty.

28. Because the husband is incapable of saying no?

 

The double standard is amazing. When a woman is "molested" by an employer it is never in any degree her fault, not even one percent. She is 100% a victim in the affair.

But another affair, the woman is at fault. She set out to seduce the guy and he, who in the other case was all-powerful and totally controlling the woman, in in this case so weak and controlled by the woman that he is unable to remain faithful to his wife.

So sometimes it's one way, sometimes it's the other. It doesn't depend on the degree of power, either, because in this case the guy who was victimized by the evil Monica was the President of The United States of America. It depends on who's telling it and who we like or don't like, in which the whole subject loses any trace of credibility.

37. "she knew...the man was married" puts responsibility on the woman for mans actions

It's up to the married person to NOT have the affair. That's what being married is about.

That line of thinking that it's somehow the (in this case) other womans responsibility for the mans actions is what gives us the chaparone rule of the pense marriage, and making women wear black bags over their bodies so that men won't be tempted.

It's lazy and dangerous to place responsibility for anyones actions on anyone other than that person.

62. That's like saying

stealing isn't wrong because that's putting the responsibility on a person because someone else decided to own something.

There's no way around it. If a person knows someone is married and sleep with them anyway, they're knowingly doing something that they know could blow up other people's lives and cause them great pain and disruption.

Let's discuss how we intend to govern, given the incredible opportunity we have just earned and won. The GOP would love for us to perpetually self-flagellate, so let's not.

But it’s okay, as long as we win right?

I’ve always hated Clinton because of all the triangulating, centrist bullshit, but also because he’s s horrible, disgusting pig of a man. We need get rid of all of them in this party, regardless.

57. According to Lewinsky the affair was consensual, which is what the OP was about. As for Bill

Clinton's behavior using the power of his position to take advantage of other women, that is a different issue, and blaming Hillary for that behavior, or judging what she should or should not have done is a perfect example of blaming the victim, because Hillary was a victim in all of this, and I would suggest that those who feel the need to do that perhaps have some latent sexist traits themselves

55. yeah, that "damn centrist bullshit", WHO APPOINTED RUTH BADER GINSBERG. (sarcasm)!!!!!!!

and in case you are misinterpreting my post, that does not mean that I am justifying Bill Clinton's sexual harassment, which incidentally had NOTHING to do with Lewinsky, which was consensual, and which was the subject of the OP, along with the unfair blaming of Hillary for Bill Clinton's behavior.

Yeah, those "damn centrist Democrats", such as LBJ, who gave us Medicare, Medicaid, the Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act, etc.

65. Trump and Kavanaugh forced sexual assault. You are really saying Monica choosing to bj

 

a married man, actively seeking him out to do just that is the same as forcing women and girls?

I disagree.

I do not like Bill Clinton, I do not support him and I would have love HRC to kick him to the curb, But, you are wrong that it is the same as Kavanaugh to the point of being offensive. Kavanaugh tried to rape a young girl.

70. He could have put a stop to the traumatizing abuse Lewinsky experienced

It was within his power to prevent the investigation, end the investigation, or at least to call off his loyalists who demonized her on his behalf. He didn't. She acknowledges her part when she has talked about how horrible the aftermath was for her. I agree. He is 100% responsible for getting caught in his own foolish power drunk antics as well as for the abuse she suffered.

45. Is this really an issue, or is it just the right wing bubble that wants to talk about it? You know,

the RW bubble who embraced a racist, sexist, bigot, adulterer to lead their party

but it sure presents a nice distraction from the insidious racism that has permeated the republican party, the Mueller investigation, and the draconian policies that are working to take away people's healthcare, social security and medicare, along with other hard fought rights relating to Civil Rights, Women's Rights, Workers Rights, the environment, etc.

56. Why is she a thing yet again? Trump is burning down democracy.

What the fuck is wrong with the media.

58. Linda Tripp is an entrapping dirt bag. The absurdity and inappropriateness of this "investigation"

 

is getting a light shined on it yet again.

Again it's getting an indirect comparison of what a total fabricated bullshit investigation over NOTHING it was and the validity of the Mueller investigation. What a stark contrast it will be.

64. Monica caused her trauma's as an adult making the decisions she did.

 

Not Hillary's job to coddle her or Linda's job to do whatever. Lewinski was a grown ass woman in her twenties making her own adult choices regardless of the poor choices they were. They are her choices and only hers.

67. My thoughts on the Clinton affair: two consenting adults engaged in an affair umpteen

years ago, and it has no bearing on my life whatsoever.

Move the hell on.
