David Letterman Talks About Monica Lewinsky with Barbara Walters

David Letterman had a guest on his show recently with whom he shared past memories. Barbara Walters sat down with him and the two recalled the good old days. Talk turned to Monica Lewinsky who had an illicit affair with President Bill Clinton in the mid-90s. 

Monica later on regretted her decision to have a casual fling with the president. She gained notoriety as a vamp and floozy and had quite some difficulty moving on with her life. Even holding a job was next to impossible for Monica after the fact. 

Letterman had played his part in the media hype by cracking one too many Monica Lewinsky jokes during the length of the scandal. He now admits that he made a mistake. The guilt and remorse he feels is genuine. 

According to Letterman, she was so young and he should have shown better judgment as a mature adult by not engaging in light banter and badinage regarding the poor lady. 

"I started to feel bad, because myself, and other people with shows like this, made relentless jokes about the poor woman. And she was a kid!" Letterman told Barbara Walters during his late night show."With some perspective, you realize this is a sad human situation."

Letterman has gone ahead to say that actually what transpired back then was not even funny. It was a tragedy of the highest order. He said that both Bill Clinton and his wife carried on with their usual patterns of living after the storm and stress of the scandal. 

But it was Monica who had to bear the brunt of the burden and her life is just not the same anymore. The thing is that when you point a finger at someone, three fingers are pointing at you as well. 

"Would you ever have considered putting her on 'The View'?" Letterman asked Barbara Walters. "Umm, I won't tell you what we have done, but it would have been possible," Walters answered cryptically. "I think it would be great if she were on 'The View.' I wouldn't expect it tomorrow," Walters said.

Letterman had a whirlwind affair in his times with a staff member. And later on the lady was fired from the office premises after a male she knew tried to blackmail Letterman. 

Letterman has reformed himself a lot since those wild days of youthful excess. He has a son just like Monica has children and knows how it feels like when you have to explain your past to your kids.
