Monica Lewinsky Goes After the Clintons with 1 Not So Subtle Tweet About Sexual Assault

If you found yourself on Twitter yesterday there’s a decent chance you saw scores of people using the hashtag #MeToo.

It deals with women who have been sexually assaulted or harassed. Check out conservative firebrand Dana Loesch’s tweetstorm using #MeToo that details fleeing her house due to death threats from left-wing radicals at this link.

Former President Bill Clinton’s sidepiece White House intern Monica Lewinsky used the hashtag in a message, as well. Many believe it was a swipe at Slick Willie – and maybe even twice failed presidential candidate Hillary.

This is the tweet Lewinsky was referencing:

Reactions:

Yowza.

Here’s an interesting note, considering Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s name is on the tip of everyone’s tongue – per Fox News:

Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to sex scandals – back when Bill Clinton was battling allegations he lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, Weinstein had the president’s back, and a hefty check in hand.

A recently uncovered 1998 story in The Washington Post lists the powerful producer – now accused of sexual harassment and assault by numerous women – among several Hollywood heavyweights who gave the maximum $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.

The detail gives a fuller picture of the longstanding financial relationship between the former first family and one of their best West Coast fundraisers. That relationship has been under the microscope after Hillary Clinton came under criticism for waiting five days to condemn Weinstein.

In eventually saying she was “shocked and appalled” by the allegations against the producer, Clinton said in a CNN interview that she would donate Weinstein’s political contributions to charity, as other Democratic beneficiaries have done. Weinstein’s contributions to her various campaigns, as well as a political committee she used to support other Democrats and a joint fund with the DNC in 2016, total more than $46,000.

Hillary Clinton, though, moved to shift the focus during a BBC interview that aired Friday, bringing up allegations against President Trump – a move that inadvertently brought up her husband’s past.

Lewinsky on her tryst with Clinton, says “I’m still held frozen in amber.”

Though it was nearly 20 years ago that Lewinsky’s name first became news, the 41-year-old said the history-making headlines still follow her today. She said recently her name was brought up in a lewd way in connection to the #TakeTheKnee movement.

“There are many ways that I have been able to move forward but there are certainly times [like] with that meme that was going around, where I’m still held frozen in amber from incidents from two decades past,” she told People Magazine.

From People:

When Monica Lewinsky first started thinking about making a PSA for Bullying Prevention Month, there was one thing she wanted to stress above all else: “I wanted to creatively demonstrate the difference between our online and offline behavior in a thought-provoking way.”

The result, the powerful new PSA In Real Life, which she worked on with ad agency BBDO New York, and Dini von Mueffling Communications, premieres Monday. The video, she says, highlights, “How people hiding behind a screen will write something they’d never say to someone’s face — and what that says about the inhumanity of their actions. It’s a stark and shocking mirror to people to rethink how we behave online versus the ways that we would behave in person.”

She would know.
