Rudy Giuliani Reopens Monica Lewinsky Affair To Throw Shade At Hillary Clinton

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called Hillary Clinton “too stupid” to lead the country because she came to her husband’s defense following his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Giuliani also said that Donald Trump should have called out Clinton for her actions during and after the Lewinsky affair, which led to the near impeachment of Bill Clinton when he was still the President.

According to Giuliani, what made Clinton’s actions so deplorable was that she attacked the character of the intern to make her husband look like the victim.

“I sure would have talked about what she did to Monica Lewinsky, trying to paint her as an insane young woman when in fact Monica Lewinsky was an intern,” he said in an article by Telegraph.

“The President of the United States, her husband, disgraced this country with what he did in the Oval Office and she didn’t just stand by him, she attacked Monica Lewinsky.”

He said her decisions only bolstered the assumption that she doesn’t do well under pressure.

“After being married to Bill Clinton for 20 years, if you didn’t know the moment Monica Lewinsky said that Bill Clinton violated her that she was telling the truth, then you’re too stupid to be president,” he added.

According to Trump, he had considered raising the issue about Lewinsky during the debate with Clinton, but he stopped at the last minute because Chelsea Clinton was in attendance.

He said that he would feel “very uncomfortable” bringing back an old issue in front of his opponent’s daughter so he restrained himself, stating that he “didn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings.”

That is in stark contrast to what the GOP presidential candidate had promised days before the debate when Trump said that he might invite Gennifer Flowers to reopen the sex scandal involving Clinton’s husband.

Giuliani said that Trump is an honest man who practices equal treatment of employees, regardless of gender. He also criticized the billionaire for holding back when Clinton accused him of being a misogynist.

But Giuliani claimed that not pouncing on his opponent during the debate for the comment about him not being a “feminist” only proved that Trump is a gentleman. The former NYC mayor said that he wouldn’t have been as nice if put in the same position.

According to Yahoo, Lewinsky has rebranded herself as an advocate against bullying. She was also quite open about her experiences as a White House intern and her affair with Clinton, along with the ensuing fallout after she was depicted in the press as the bad guy.

The article also pointed out that Clinton was asked by ABC News reporter Diane Sawyer about Lewinsky being back in the public limelight and she replied that the former intern has every right to express herself in the manner that she sees fit. The presidential candidate also insisted that she doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about that episode in her life and claimed that she already said her peace in her book “Living History.”

In an April interview with The Guardian, Lewinsky mentioned that she is still trying to live down the sex scandal that happened in the late 1990s. In the interview, she said that the stigma stuck to her like glue and that it was very difficult to peel off. Even now, over two decades later, people still remember her as the intern who seduced the president. She also revealed that she came really close to ending it all because the shame was too much for her to bear.
