With modern misinformation or fake news its hard to know what public shaming is real

I'm not calling John a hypocrite, but it does seem pretty harsh to go after Jay Leno for stuff he said twenty years earlier, at a time when pretty much *every* comedian was doing the same thing

1:13 Is calling the corona virus , Wuhan or Chinese virus a form of public shaming that he claims can be effective , or racist ...Only a lefty can decide this who unofficially by their own narcissism controls the narrative... You lefties hate Tucker because he exposes simple truth and presents a threat to your socialistic-ally controlled P.C. thinking. Trump 2020 !

All I could think of while watching this interview is how completely ridiculous the "scandal" was compared to what's going in the White House now. I was a grown adult when this happened, and at the time, I thought "Really Bill? In the White House? Geez dude...... at least get a hotel room if you're going to cheat on your wife". Definitely not a cool move, but on the spectrum of bad choices, really pretty minor. And I have never blamed her; she was a young woman drawn to a handsome, powerful and extremely charismatic man. I'd be willing to bet that some of the people who shamed her over that event are the same ones who support Orange Hair so strongly now.

You have to hand it to John, Monika said no to so many interviewers, walked away from many, but John nailed it.

I remember the utterly toxic bullshit Monica went through. I remember thinking 'God, please don't let her kill herself'. It was that bad. I was behind her then (I did some F@@@d up, shameful and embarrassing shit my damn self) and I just love her now. Good for you Monica

I think the "Dingo ate my baby lady" went through hell too- people demonized her and spent years saying she killed her baby, and then finally people looked into it and found that dingos actually can use their paws to remove a baby's clothes so she probably wasn't lying. But it's still a thing and I'm not sure how many people still think she killed her baby.
Ozziecatsmom 5 days ago
Kat Murphy Probably most people who remember it think she did it. Her and her family went through so much for years. It's been nearly 40 years, I'm sure you never "get over" the horrible loss of an infant, never mind most people thinking you were responsible.

That's the problem with social media. It makes everybody a celebrity and, in some cases, allows nameless college girls to be relentlessly insulted by massive attack dogs like John Oliver

I can tell Lewinsky how she could have gotten through everything EASILY. We have 7 billion people on this planet. AND, even during the worst periods she went though, she never faced hunger, lack of shelter, or health care. In other words, during her "worst" periods in life, she still had it better than about 99.9% of the everyone else in this world. And, here she is, crying, and saying "Poor me" about what she went through? All she did with Clinton is regularly give him "blow jobs" They never had sex. Sorry, but the only women who are satisfied with a "relationship" with a guy that involves her giving him blow jobs, CHARGE. In other words, only prostitutes put up with that. And, finally, she's become a WEALTHY women because of al this. I remember seeing film of her showing up at a ton of "Hollywood" events. So, frankly, all this "victim" stuff she's claiming is ridiculous. She came on to Clinton even though she KNEW he was a married man. She needs to stop playing the "shy virgin" whom Clinton took advantage of.
arx754 7 days ago
Please don't bring up Lewinsky. What her affair with Clinton did is make her a very wealthy women who was invited ----and showed up at---every "Hollywood" event. And, btw, she was 25 years old when she had her affair. Yet, the GOP acted as if she was a "child" that Clinton took advantage of. SHE sought him out. And, sorry to blunt, to be crude here, but their affair consisted ONLY of her giving Clinton "blow jobs". Even she has admitted they never had sexual intercourse. Im a women, and frankly, if all I did was give a guy blow jobs, I would NOT describe it as an affair. I don't care if it IS the president of the US, NO WAY would I be involved with a guy when our physical contact was ONLY me giving him blow jobs. Pathetic. So, no, i have NO sympathy for her at all. She made it a POINT to stay in the public eye because she was making big bucks from it and never had to get a REAL job. Frankly, I'm embarrassed for her that she's made such a big deal about the fact that her relationship with Clinton was only about her giving him blow jjobs. What woman would put up with that in a relationship with a guy? UNLESs he was paying her, if she was a prostitute.

When the news about Mr Clinton was broken out in my country, the only thing my dad said about it was “Clinton might be a somewhat good president but he is a shitty man, to his wife and to the lady. She is young and stupid but he is not, either of those 2. If he didn’t have the mind to do that, the lady would not become “the mistress”. He throws her out and not be hold accountable. Mrs Clinton has to help him clean up his ass, too. The one got hurt are his wife and the lady. What a shitty man!”. I didn’t understand everything my dad said at the time, but the more I grow the more I feel greatful to have he as my dad.

It is not often for me as an adult nowadays to feel moved by a show, or entertainment generally, as I used to when I was younger, but your show always makes my day. I know you sometimes read comments and if you do read this one: thank you for impeccable way of addressing life's most important matters with such deep sensitivity and glorious humor, I really admire your work.

She still hot what man would not want that what the hell is people problem like they done mess up shit
It's weird that everyone shames her for this. It was the most talked about and memorable blowjob in history. That kind of talent should be applauded. Kim Kardashian makes a tape and becomes a millionaire, Monica Lewinsky gives the blowjob of the century and her life gets ruined. What makes it even weirder is that if it were a professor and student it would have been a much different conversation. As a man thirty years her senior that holds a position of power over her, even if the professor beat charges, he'd be ostracized. But because it was the President, the most powerful man in the world, it somehow flipped to make her some kind of succubus (but we're talking about that blowjob over twenty years later, so I guess that's plausible)

Technically isn't it public shaming when late night hosts and other Twitterati pick on Trump for his small fingers, orange skin, speech, his wife, his daughter, etc? Sounds hypocritical to condemn public shaming for one individual but do it to a public figure just because of your hate for that person.
Aashay Sukhthankar
@River Tam So you agree it's not about how public or private the individual is but rather the actions of the individual? In which case, why not shame them for those actions instead of picking up on irrelevant parts of them? Like Melania has nothing to do with the administration's failure yet comedians love picking up on Melania's sex life and her marriage to Trump. Trump can be shamed for his actions, why pick on his body? It just seems hypocritical that's all. I don't recall comedians making jokes on Obama's sex life and his relationship with his daughters just because he oversaw indiscriminate drone strikes on innocent civilians.

@Aashay Sukhthankar Monica Lewinsky did nothing wrong. Trump and his family have destroyed countless people economically and now their inaction has actually killed people.

And how does that make a difference? If she was a public figure would it justify something like that?

I read the Starr Report and it sounded like the prudish roommate being jealous of other people having a life he is scared of. It was ridiculous. Bill Clinton did way worse things you could have investigated, it is very obvious they were just trying to frame him somehow. Compared to Donald Trump today having even publicly confessed to being a groper, being on pictures with his buddy Jeffrey Epstein, etc. this was ridiculous. Yes, she did a stupid thing. But Bill Clinton is a very professional groomer who had affairs etc. with very many women. He never cared about her afterwards or stood by her, he never said anything like "Leave her alone, put shit on me if you want". There was no chivalry, nothing. Like many men he just got himself what he wanted and dumped her like a used tissue. And she got all the dirt for it. Nobody slut-shamed him publicly, which would have been really well-deserved multiple times. Nobody joked about the suit he wore like about her blue dress. Hillary was shamed for standing by him, too. But. not. him. He had every help possible and even got through the impeachment more or less unscathed. I just thought that if she had killed herself people would even had said she was weak and deserved it. I am glad that she didn't and speaks out about her experience.

Having dinner with daddy Tucker would be dreamy. He’s doubled your progeny and his wife probably isn’t the man in the relationship like your war-hero husband is. Oh wait... it’s ok to shame him as a public figure but probably not you. Double standards are brilliant things. I love how this muppet is the authority behind who it’s ok to publicly shame and who, if shamed, is just a helpless victim. This teenage girl deserved it because of her Instagram following, but an adult Lewinsky who gave fucking blowjobs to the president doesn’t deserve it because poor thing? Where do you get off thinking you can be the judge of it... oh that’s right, he THINKS about it. Wowwwww... Pope John Oliver I paragon of morality

Looking at her interview, I like her already. I was pretty young when this scandal came out and although I didn't had any hard feelings for her but still somewhere in my subconcience , she was just an ex US President's mistress. This interview actually helped me understand what a wonderful person she is, much much more than my tunnel vision mental image of her. I am really happy I got the opportunity to see her in a different light. And I think I am going to follow her on Twitter.

I actually think things would have been far better for her if they happened since 2016. The entire mediascape has compacted to the point yesterdays news is yesterdays news and last weeks news feels decades ago. What she went through would have lasted a week or two at most and someone like Star wouldn't have been able to drag out the entire thing as he did.
