Conservative commentator S. E. Cupp met stiff resistance from most of the panelists on ABC's "The View" on Friday when she said that people who are dwelling on President Donald Trump's purported liaison with adult film star Stormy Daniels should be giving equal time to Monica Lewinsky.


"Don't you want her on the show?" co-host Joy Behar asked about Daniels. "I want her here."

Daniels, said Cupp, is "playing the hand she was dealt. What bothers me, though, in giving her this platform, Monica Lewinsky was caught having an affair with a president. Who's going to interview her? I'd love to see someone her. Her life was ruined."

"She's been interviewed a hundred times," said Behar. "She's been on this show."

In fact, Lewinsky was considered for a co-host slot on "The View" in 2015.

"But Bill Clinton isn't the president anymore," said Sunny Hostin. "The president is Donald Trump, so it's much more relevant at the very least."

Cupp said that until "the left" answers for how former President Bill Clinton's accusers were treated, "you can’t say he’s not president anymore.”

Bill Clinton stepped down at the end of his term in January of 2001 when President George W. Bush was inaugurated.
