    John is super angry. Imagine digging up 23 year old segments to complain that infidelity was made fun of. Weird. Progressives are just weird. If you thought about saying things they wouldn’t accept in 23 years, Buddy, you better think twice.

    Having worked weddings (where I was also allowed to attend the buffet) I can answer this question for you. You hold the glass of wine in your left hand (if right handed. Otherwise obviously vice versa) near the top of the glass. You then balance the plate on top of said glass, using the remainder of your wine holding hand to secure said plate. Use free hand to eat and use napkin. Avoid anything with sauce or excessive grease. Your welcome.

The aunt is still horrible because now the home owners insurance for the home owner will be through the roof. She is championing social bullying but what about having affairs with married men. I mean bullying is wrong but she did have an affair with a married man. Sorry but come on.

    She had an affair with a married man. He cheated on his wife. It is sad that both are taken seriously. 22? Two generations ago, a 22 year old would have had a husband, a couple of kids and a mortgage. Adolescence must end. No one should treat adultery as no big deal. Adultery destroys lives and families. I don't care if every POTUS had an affair it is still wrong. You've must consider that actions have consequences.

    When I clicked on this video, I would never have thought I'd be walking away and spending the rest of my day thinking how much I admire Monica Lewinsky.

  • Your Name Here

    I never felt bad about the crap Lewinsky had to endure. She had an affair with the mightiest man in the world and told lots of people about it. She publicly humiliated Hillary. She privately helped destroy the Clinton name. She kept the dress with the stains of sex on it sealed in a poly bag. She trusted Linda Tripp. She was unapologetic and shifted blame. I still don't feel bad for her or Bill Clinton. They both played themselves with their debauchery. She's no victim. She's a home wrecker. Bill is a creep. Hillary is a fool for staying with him.

    When she mentioned she couldn't get a job was so heart breaking. The misogyny in society hate her more than B.Clinton. They don't talk about how he was one of the most powerful people in the country and not setting an example and was predatorial to a 22 year old adolescent. A married man who cheated. The misogyny also showed in 2016 when people wanted to drag Hilary because HER HUSBAND cheated. P.S. those music artists owe her a cut.

    Hey, you never know what someone's going through. Bill Clinton was older, her boss, and, may I mention, the fucking president of the United States. She was 22 and has stated multiple times that she regrets what she did, with the modicum of agency she had in the situation. People can grow and change, and she is NOT deserving of that sort of blatant harassment. And Monica Lewinsky aside, yes, cheating is bad, but I also notice you mentioned nothing about this hypothetical man who decided his own wife wasn't good enough and decided to betray her trust. Why is that, do you think?

    Ok did you watch the video, or do you just not like John? He explained the process or making fun of the people they do, are they a public figure, do they deserve this ect... He also references the joke he made about Lewinsky, so admiting his hands aren't clean. The laugh track, if faked, was added post production, I doubt he has much to do with that.

But I will say this, Monica Lewinski has made a fan of hers out of me.
