Stephen Colbert grills Bill Clinton over answers in earlier interview

DON EMMERT  AFP  GettyPresident Clinton has collaborated on a novel with the world's best-selling author

Former President Bill Clinton celebrated the #MeToo movement in an interview that aired Monday but said that it would have done little to change his response to the scandal that prompted his impeachment.

All the recent comments came amid Clinton's book tour with author James Patterson, who co-authored "The President Is Missing" with the former president.

Clinton then affirmed his support for the #MeToo movement, after drawing criticisms from many for seemingly undermining it. "I've had to live with the consequences every day since".

Clinton added that he paid a price - both politically and literally - for the affair, even though he remained in office.

"I want you to enjoy this one, but I do want to ask you something: Would you like a do-over on that answer?" And I've tried to do a good job since then, and with my life and with my work.

"Some of the things that are going on, I mean there just was a thing today, just recently, about him possibly bringing Rodman to Singapore", Patterson said. Instead, Clinton defended his reaction and employed a strategy used by perpetrators of sexual harassment: painting themselves as a victim.

Footage showed rescue teams working in darkness trying to enter homes to look for trapped residents, particularly the elderly. It is the country's largest eruption since 1902, when an eruption of the Santa Maria volcano killed thousands of civilians.

"Well, I did, and they showed a film clip finally", Clinton added.

"We've put a lot of trust and faith in our candidates across America, candidates like Conor Lamb, who is driving the bus, if you will, and making sure that surrogates will travel out there, that made a difference to his constituents", Lujan emphasized.

Citizens United President David Bossie, former deputy campaign manager to President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, said Monday on Fox News' "The Story with Martha MacCallum" that Clinton's refusal to apologize personally to Lewinsky is the "perfect, quintessential Bill Clinton".

'To tell you the truth, you can't really have an appropriate consensual relationship with a 20-year-old intern in your office.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Tuesday on Fox News" "America's Newsroom" that "it sounded like Bill Clinton took a poll from one interview to the next, they poll-tested a response, and he decided, "You know what?"
