Answering the question, the former United States president accused the journalist of ignoring "gaping facts" in Monica Lewinsky's case and tried to downplay his misconduct, saying that he doesn't "agree with everything" the #MeToo movement does and still "has some questions about some of the decisions that have been made".
"Bill Clinton was on the right side in many ways", Behar said, pointing to Trump's attacks on the handicapped and his denigration of McCain's father, Sen. "When I saw the interview, I thought that - because they had to, you know, distill it - it looked like I was saying that I didn't apologize and I had no intention to", he said. In that interview, Clinton said, of his sit-down with Melvin, "I got mad... and should have remembered that man is young enough to be my son".
"I would like for the #MeToo movement to be so kind and recognize myself and Paula [Jones] and Juanita [Broaddrick] and Kathleen [Willey] and many, many other women starting many years ago that have come out with claims of sexual harassment from Bill Clinton", she said, adding, "They haven't given us any respect as far as I'm concerned". Melvin to his credit persisted with Clinton who then tried to portray himself as the victim in the Lewinsky scandal "I left the White House $16 million in debt [from legal fees], but you typically have ignored gaping facts in describing this, and I bet you don't even know them".
'I think partly because they're frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don't seem to care'. "And I still believe this #MeToo movement is long overdue, necessary, and should be supported". I meant it then.
After Colbert's interview with Clinton was over, Notaro filled his seat and also addressed the affair, albeit from a different angle. "I have had to live with the consequences every day since". The American people, two-thirds of them stayed with me.

According to NASA , the trio will orbit Earth a total of 34 times before arriving at the outpost on Friday, June 8. Eighty percent say the International Space Station has been a good investment for the country.
Colbert didn't let Clinton off the hook, however, and argued that the question should have been expected.
Clinton was asked in the interview Monday if he would deliver a direct apology to Lewinsky, which he declined, saying he had publicly apologized in 1998.
"I don't think it would be an issue because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts".
Clinton is promoting his new fictional thriller, "The President Is Missing", with best-selling author James Patterson. And so it doesn't seem surprising that the question would be asked. "You have to get away from the Clintons if the Democrats want any future whatsoever".
Lewinsky, now 44, has not specifically commented on Clinton's remarks, but did repost her March Vanity Fair column about the tryst.
