From my experience: people tend to use the person (accused of doing "the bad thing") as a representative of a group of similar people that've hurt them in the past. That's why trump doesn't get as much attention (of that kind) as someone who could be seen as: a home wrecker, malevolent family member or someone most people would relate to not liking. It's simply mob mentality

Gid that Dickead Wilie Jeff Clinton ever send her an apology? Or a cheque to make up for what he did to her?

No offence to Lewinsky, but her net worth just keeps climbing due to her incident. I think we've heard enough about it but.. Sure, lets get an FX special ripping open those scars again for profit. *shrugs*

Oh my god, imagine having the stupidest thing you did as a 22 year old completely destroy your & your family's life.

Both Monica Lewinsky and Harvey Weinstein are amazingly strong people for enduring the public's vicious shamings, and should serve as role models and heroes for us all.

I was a kid during that whole lewinsky scandal. So my memories are vague but i really like her, she seems a kind and genuine person and if there is an american in the last 50 years who has a right to be bitter its her
Done in the dark comes out in the light
She should have told it all been better not hid
Don't be own it no pain when you sucking and fucking just Rember actions have reprcutions for sure if your not rich really how sad she is on tv paid shows and make good money making it of sucking and fucking like Charlie sheen could have been worse she was Epstein lol

I feel like what’s worse is that Hillary said she’s a feminist but didn’t blame her husband, and then let the media flame the shit out of a very young woman

The only shaming that works is fat shaming!!!

Maybe you should not do it because of things like the covington kids.

Monic Lewinsky is the badass bitch this nation doesn’t deserve

LOL I honestly still have 0 sympathy for Lewinsky. She did it to herself. Somehow "amazed" by media coverage, omg! A psycho keeps the dress and goes public. That's why people hate her. Not the act, it was the gross way she handled it, then she victimized herself to the nth degree for being called out...

I like Monica. I think Clinton & Ken Starr should have been publicly shamed.

I don’t feel sorry for her. Free will...why did she save the dress? She had her own motives for advancement and it backfired. I don’t care what age you are. After the age of cognitive enlightenment of right & wrong...there’s consequences.

I love this interview! Monica is a stunningly beautiful person inside and out. I was always mad about how Monica took the brunt of all of the 💩, when she was single, and in a very tough profession at the time. I think it’s still somewhat difficult for women in the political arena. However, Bill Clinton was the one who was married, and also the one who lied about his affair with Monica. Seeing the beautiful person Monica is STILL after all that she endured, and her ability to be able to joke about it, especially her going as her younger self, complete with the bare’ to her friends 90’s themed party, is brilliant! Thank you, John, for this episode. I hope that people going through a tough phase in their life can see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You can recover and shine even though it feels like the end of the world right now.

The dumbest thing I did at 22 was not to or with the most famous married man on the goddamn planet. I didn’t give a fuck about her then and I don’t now. She did that to herself and at NO point has she claimed she didn’t want to do it or said no and it was forced on her. That age is not an excuse. You know the differ nice between right and wrong by your third decade.

WHY Bill clinton didn't go through public shaming as bad as Monica Lewinsky??? It needs two to tango

He started getting shammed. Then Hillary got involved and created then bimbo explosion squad. She was pretty effective at using all the white house resources to humiliate and eliminate potential "Bimbos" as she called them and of course shamming Lewinsky.

I don't know how anyone can say Monica Lewinsky is ugly. I think she's a very attractive girl both then and now.

Aww that actually made me tear up. 💖 I'm glad she's doing OK. I did see that Tedtalks speech in it's entirety awhile back. Worth watching!

I love how he takes the story about how public shaming is bad, unless its someone he doesn't like, then its fine! lol Funny how that works.

Even though he's being i think a bit unfairly attacked by some groups at the moment Dave Chappelle was ahead of the curve in being sympathetic towards Monica. In Killin em softly he says he feels sorry for her. Nobody wants to be the most famous cocksucker of all time and points out most women had probably done worse but not publicly shamed.

To this day I still can’t believe that Bill Clinton basically got away with what he did to that woman.

Well, it was a bigger deal than her just getting caught. Her reputation was ruined on a global scale and her identity was ceaselessly attacked for the entertainment of millions. You could get caught blowing someone in a position of power you shouldn't have been blowing but it wouldn't traumatically destroy your entire life

It's pretty easy to dig up episodes of Last Week Tonight decontextualizing some event to the point where the audience believes something totally false for the purpose of public shaming.

Here in France, there was a scandal a few years ago when some football players raped a prostitute who was a minor (or as the media call it, "Had sex with an underage escort".) Today, they're rich, they're fine, they have a job, and she's still the most slut-shamed woman of the country. Female victims are always held accountable for the predatory actions of wealthy men. This is beyond disgusting.

I'm already a bit suicidal if what happened to Monica happened to me I wouldn't survive it
“She’s so smart but so fake physically. I’m so perplexed.” Is what I commented originally but then she explained it. Genius.
