Jake Tapper “Stunned” at Bill Clinton’s Poor Handling of #MeToo Questions

“I’ve been amazed at how poorly he’s handled these questions,” Tapper said.

Jake Tapper told Seth Meyers that he’s been “stunned” by Bill Clinton’s “poor” handling of questions pertaining to Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement on the former president’s book tour.

“I know some of the people on that team, and I’m sure they tried to prepare him,” the CNN‘s chief Washington correspondent allowed, before laying into Clinton’s handling of the sensitive subject matter.

“I would think he would have had automatic answers for, ‘Do you owe Monica Lewinski an apology? What do you make of the #MeToo movement? What do you make of this individual case, Harvey Weinstein, whoever.’ And, boy, some of the answers have been just — you couldn’t — if you wanted to write the worst answer he could give – it is almost as if. That one he did today about whether or not you can grope people…”

“It was not well thought out,” Meyers agreed.
