Monica Lewinsky Speaks Out About Clinton Affair for First Time in 13 Years

Standard

The Media has Been Quick to Hail the “Comeback” of Monica Lewinsky

Monica Lewinsky received a standing ovation and was showered in praise after she publicly spoke out about her affair with Bill Clinton for the first time in 13 years.  She spoke to a large crowd of millennials at the Forbes Under 30 Summit, calling herself “Patient Zero” of online bullying.

“Sixteen years ago, fresh out of college, I fell in love with my boss,” is how Lewinsky began to describe the infamous affair, which made her one of the most talked about people of the late 90’s.  Fighting back tears, she described how she was humiliated by the media and how the suicide of Rutgers Uniersity freshman Tyler Clementi in 2010 inspired her to speak out.
