Bill Clinton Probably Should Have Just Smoked Some Weed Instead

Former President Bill Clinton said he had an affair with Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties.”

In a new Hulu docu-series about Hillary Clinton covering her 2016 presidential campaign as well as her life and marriage to Bill, the former president addressed his affair with then-White House intern Lewinsky in the mid-1990s. He said he was under enormous pressure and he slept with Lewinsky to take his mind off the stress that comes with the presidency.

“You feel like you’re staggering around. You’ve been in a 15-round prize fight that was extended to 30 rounds, and here’s something that’ll take your mind off it for a while,” Clinton said. “Everybody’s life has pressures and disappointments and terrors, fears of whatever, things I did to manage my anxieties for years.”

People on Twitter wondered why he didn’t just smoke a little weed instead.

Hillary says Bill sat down on their bed one morning and told her the news was about to break that he’d had an affair. He said there was no truth to the story that was about to run and that he hadn’t slept with Lewinsky.

Hillary believed him. “If they could make up something, they were so partisan that they would do it,” she said. For a time, she defended him publicly, backing up his story that he didn’t have an affair.

Lots of people couldn’t believe he would have an affair. Jennifer Palmieri, a special assistant to the White House chief of staff who went on to become the communications director for Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign, said she didn’t think anything of Bill’s spending time with Lewinsky.
