    Just saw this cross the news wire.

    A strange woman to be sure. Secretly records conversations with a then unknown intern about her affair with the president, and then passes them on to the authorities.

    She sure ruined Monica's life, and in the end it amounted to nothing except heightened political revenge, failed impeachments and lots of division.

    I doubt Trump would have gone through what he did except for her. I would say good riddance except cancer got her and I would not wish that on anyone.

    How times have changed. 23 years ago that was such a big deal! Remember, "If you will cheat on your wife, you will cheat on your country" lol, I remember ever bit of the scandal! Heck you STILL see people making memes about it.

    Today, "grab them by the pu$$y" and Presidential porn star payoffs don't even blip the radar. Can you even imagine if that would have happened in the 90's...

    Has society progressed?:crying:

    You must have your radar off, it sure seemed to blip to me. Lots of fuss about it and the one guy got fired just for being there.

    It was a big deal and I am not real happy with Trump for his methods either but in that regard we knew he was a snake when we picked him up.

    Monica "ruined" her own life.

    She had an oral agreement with Bill Clinton that she failed to keep a secret when she told Linda Tripp about it.. You might say she wasn't able to keep her mouth shut when it mattered the most.

    What amazed me was a director (a play IIRC) went on tv to tell that he used her “willingness to perform on her knees” in exchange for letting her act in a few stage shows (iirc she was understudy)
    She just didn’t meet Weinstein...

    Women can never ever keep a secret of that nature.

    Indeed.
    Different time and place in our countries history.......

    I will say that Willy made bad choices, not the least of which was thinking a 20 YO intern could keep a secret. A 20 YO intern blowing the President of the United States is eventually going to tell everyone.
    Willy should have used actresses and high end hookers like his predecessors.

    Who's water is that you are carrying?

    Mere locker room chat (inappropriate) vs actual victimization of a real person.

    Linda was buried in an old blue velvet dress with shades of Pearl. I bet she had a nice service.
