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.

Resurfaced quotes come back to haunt Graham and Nunes on impeachment
A video showing Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., during the Clinton impeachment proceedings resurfaced this week, illustrating how the Judiciary Committee chairman has reversed his stance on impeachment now that an inquiry has been activated into President Donald Trump.
This article first appeared in Salon.
Graham, an ardent ally of President Trump, sponsored a resolution that has been co-signed by all but three Senate Republicans decrying the House impeachment probe. He told Fox News host Sean Hannity in October that any articles of impeachment against Trump should be “dismissed in the Senate without a trial.” He also called the impeachment inquiry proceedings a “lynching in every sense.”
‘Covering for Trump!’ Conspiracy nuts turn on Bill Barr after he says Jeffrey Epstein definitely killed himself
Attorney General Bill Barr on Friday said that he had seen direct evidence that accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein took his own life -- and conspiracy theorists at Reddit are not happy about it.
Barr told the Associated Press on Friday that Epstein's suicide wasn't the result of a nefarious plot, but rather what he described as a "perfect storm of screw-ups" that occurred at his detention facility over the summer.
‘Insane and inane’: Devin Nunes’ closing remarks dismantled by Bloomberg columnist
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) ignored all the evidence presented in the impeachment hearings and instead asked viewers to accept an implausible counter-narrative about the whistleblower complaint that prompted the inquiry.
The House Intelligence Committee's ranking Republican gave a closing statement Thursday that laid out a timeline that he argued proved the complaint was made after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation failed to result in impeachment, reported Bloomberg's Jonathan Bernstein.
