What's going on?
Former President Bill Clinton is in hot water after using some ill-chosen words and fake facts to defend himself against questions about Monica Lewinsky, #MeToo and his history of reportedly harassing and assaulting women.
The Washington Post went so far as to go through Clinton's interview line by line and fact-check some of what he said.
What did the Washington Post say?
The paper listed some “facts" that Clinton was very wrong about:
- No, the Clintons did not leave the White House "$16 million in debt."
- The sexual harassment policy Clinton claimed to implement while governor in Arkansas was actually just the state adopting federal guidelines.
- The WaPo gave Clinton "four Pinocchios." You can read the full article here.
"They've now turned on Bill and Hillary Clinton," Glenn said of the media. "Here's what's remarkable: It was NBC that went after him, and the Washington Post has now done a fact check … and they are ripping him apart."
