MSNBC panelist skewers ex-President Clinton: 'Hillary paid the political price' that Bill 'is refusing to pay'

Responding to former President Bill Clinton's disastrous TODAY show interview where he claimed that in spite of the #MeToo movement he "did the right thing" when handling the Monica Lewinsky scandal, one NBC editor warned that the former president's time is up.


When asked by MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle if Democrats should continue running the former president as a surrogate for the party, NBC senior editor Beth Fouhy said that Clinton "was a terrible surrogate in 2016 for his wife."

"She has paid for this far more than he ever did," the editor said, noting that at one of the presidential debates, Donald Trump's then-campaign chairman Steve Bannon invited women who accused President Clinton of assault and harassment.

"Hillary Clinton was not in the position to condemn that or say anything about it because she lives with the history," Fouhy said. "She paid the political price for what happened in this century that Bill Clinton still is refusing to pay."
