Pence: Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky Scandal ‘The Most Appalling Behavior’ of Any President

Mike Pence

During an appearance on today’s edition of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Republican vice-presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence called the Monica Lewinsky scandal “the most appalling behavior” of any U.S. president.

It took a while to find all that out. He was under oath in 1998 and he finally came clean on having taken advantage of a 23-year-old intern at the White House named Monica Lewinsky, in the most appalling behavior by an American president in the history of this country.

Pence is absolutely right about that. I’m old enough to remember when news of Then President Bill Clinton having an affair with a young White House intern. All the network news anchors immediately flew back from Cuba where they were covering a papal visit. Almost everyone expected that Slick Willie would be resigning in short order. As we know that common wisdom proved wrong as it all too often does. The point is that initially most thought it so appalling that Clinton could not survive.

It is notable, if not surprising, that in the CBS News article about Pence’s appearance on “Face the Nation,” Reena Flores didn’t even mention “the most appalling behavior” shot at President Clinton.

Flores did mention Pence’s defense of Donald Trump against the allegations of sexual assault how Trump has treated his accusers on the campaign that followed the release of the 2005 “Access Hollywood” video. All of which a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, found appears to “have had only a minimal impact on his overall support.” It should also be noted that the same poll also found that Trump’s attacks against  the Clintons aren’t working.

In addition, Flores briefly wrote about Pence’s attack the media for ignoring the “avalanche of hard evidence about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation and her years as Secretary of State.”

And Pence also discussed Trump’s “rigged election” comments:

“I think what Donald Trump is talking about is frankly what appears to be the monolithic support of the national media for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, their willful ignorance about the avalanche of hard evidence,” Pence said.

[. . .]

And, and elections get really tough. But, the American people are getting awfully tired of this two-on-one fight with many of you in the national media doing half of Hillary Clinton’s work for her every day.

Pence also reaffirmed that he and Trump will respect the outcome of the election, saying “Well, look, let me be very clear. Donald Trump said in the first debate that we’ll respect the will of the American people in this election. The peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of American history.

    That “scandal” was some of the most absurd steaming piles of shit ever handed americans.
    PResident Clinton was able to completely reverse the reagan depression and put the working man back on the map, which caused corporations to actually have to pay for labor for a change.
    And the republican party, which is corporate americas slave pen, were beholden to their owners to do all the could to stop President Clinton from benefiting the working man for a change instead of the corporations.

    The plain reality is that the imbeciles in congress could NOT find a legitimate reason to hamstring President Clinton, hard as they tried, so they had to lower themselves to some sordid bullshit that was none of anyones business.

    Big fucking deal, the guy lied about a blowjob to a bunch of evil demons whose business it wasn’t.
    Lying about blowjobs is part of what men do. INCLUDING his political enemies as well as preachers, deacons, and churchgoers who wouldn’t curse if they fell out of a plane.

    I am GLAD President Clinton got a blowjob. He deserved it.

    I’d have given that idiot bush a blowjob if he would have resigned and taken his puppet-master cheney with him, and in the process not undone the greatest economy ever to exist in written history.

    We should have impeached congress for being busybodies and looking in someone elses windows.
    Especially that hypocrite Newt Grinch.
    At least President Clinton didn’t leave a very seriously ill wife for an intern.

    I wouldn’t vote for President Clintons ball and chain, I will indeed vote for Trump.

    But President Clinton was one of the greatest Presidents this country has had.

    He was also this countries final President, the United States of America ceased to exist the day cheney and the oil companies took over the whitehouse in 2000. Until someone like Trump is able to rise this country back to being The United States of America again, this country will never have a real President again, because in order for it to have a President it must exist.

    there’s been plenty of talk about politicians using their interns and staff more like personal property than business associates/interns

      There is all kinds of talk about all kinds of things all the time, how much of it is unsubstantiated?
      Talk is talk and isn’t necessarily reality.

      Seems to me monica was a willing participant.

      Why do interns become interns? I conjecture it is in order to climb the political, professional, and social ladders.

      I think we should ask the question who is using who.
      I suspect it is more likely that interns are using politicians.
