Liberal late-night TV host Trevor Noah ridiculed former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her remarks downplaying her husband's affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky.
During a recent interview, Hillary Clinton said President Bill Clinton’s affair with Lewinsky wasn't an abuse of power.
Clinton said that her husband and Lewinsky were consenting adults during the affair. Later in the interview, Clinton also deflected, attempting to turn the focus on President Donald Trump and the sexual misconduct allegations made against him.
Noah discussed Clinton's remarks, which she made Sunday during CBS "Sunday Morning." He addressed Clinton's remarks head-on during his Monday show, noting that Clinton was in no position "to be throwing stones" and added that, if she continues to give such soundbites during interviews, she may want to "go back into the woods."
"No, Hillary," Noah said. "Oh, I’m sorry, man. Look, here’s the thing. That's not cool."
"Maybe it was different in the '90s, but today, I think we're all understanding that there's a massive power imbalance between an intern and the president of the United States, all right? I mean, forget intern — a president with anyone is a power imbalance," he added.
Noah also went on to criticize Clinton for "trying to deflect" from her husband's affair in order to make Trump look bad.
During her "Sunday Morning" interview, Clinton asked, "Where's the investigation into the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?"
Noah took exception to her remarks and said, "[W]hat’s also not cool is Hillary trying to deflect and make this about Trump.
"You're not in a position to be throwing stones at someone, Hillary," Noah warned, "especially when you're literally sitting in a glass house," pointing to the glass house that Clinton sat in for her interview.
