The former President of the United States of America was a guest on CBS' The Late Show on Tuesday, June 6, 2018, and revealed that he wasn't happy with his own approach during an interview with NBC News' Craig Melvin.

According to Clinton, after being asked if he would have handled the situation differently today, he said that he wouldn't and that he didn't owe Lewinsky an apology.

Yet, the 71-year-old told Colbert that he didn't mean to sound tone-deaf and didn't explain himself particularly well during the interview with Melvin.

What the former President meant to say was that he dealt with the consequences of his actions for the past 20 years and had already apologized to Lewinsky for dragging her into the situation in 1998.

As explained by Clinton, that was the reason why he told Melvin that he didn't feel like he owed the former White House intern an apology when the NBC News reporter asked him about it.

After listening to Clinton's words, Colbert offered him the chance for a 'do-over' on his answer, which the 71-year-old gladly took. He started by admitting that it wasn't his 'finest hour' and that the affair with Lewinsky was a very painful moment in his life.

At the time, Clinton apologized to his family, to Lewinsky, to her family and the American people as well for bringing such shame upon them. According to the politician, those words kept their meaning and worth for the last 20 years.

Colbert referred to the affair with Lewinsky as the prime example of the #Metoo movement and Clinton agreed, claiming that he still believed in it and that it should be fully supported.

Aside from the 1998 scandal, Clinton urged Americans to vote in the primaries, adding that Russian president, Vladimir Putin, interfered with the presidential elections in 2016. For more follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
