Monica Lewinsky disinvited from event after Bill Clinton added to guest list

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

There is little debate that former White House intern Monica Lewinsky saw her life be incredibly disrupted and nearly ruined following her sexual involvement with former President Bill Clinton during the late 1990s.

But now some 20 years later, Clinton is still having a disruptive and ruinous effect on Lewinsky’s life as she was dis-invited from an event on “social change” after Clinton decided to attend the event as well.

Siding with a rapist

That report came from USA Today, which noted that while Lewinsky declined to specifically name the organization that had rescinded their invitation to her for the unnamed event, she revealed they had instead offered her space to publish an article in a magazine.

Lewinsky tweeted Wednesday, “dear world, Please don’t invite me to an event (esp one about social change) and — then after I’ve accepted — uninvite me because Bill Clinton then decided to attend/was invited. It’s 2018. Emily Post would def not approve.”

That tweet was followed by: “p.s. … and definitely, please don’t try to ameliorate the situation by insulting me with an offer of an article in your mag.”

While Lewinsky may have demurred in singling out the organization which had slighted her in favor of the former president, The Huffington Post went ahead and revealed that it was Town & Country magazine who’d pushed Lewinsky off to the side.

The event in question was the magazine’s annual philanthropic summit held at Hearst Tower in New York City on Wednesday.

USA Today reported that Town & Country declined to comment on the matter, and are catching some flak for their decision to dis-invite Lewinsky from the event once it was learned Clinton would be attending as well.

Lewinsky: No consent

Lewinsky was 22-years-old when she had a brief affair with the president in the Oval Office, and though she has long maintained that the sexual relationship was consensual, she has rethought that characterization 22 years later in light of the #MeToo movement.

She wrote for Vanity Fair in March, “Now, at 44, I’m beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern.”

“I’m beginning to entertain the notion that in such a circumstance the idea of consent might well be rendered moot,” she added.

Indeed, most of us realized way back then that Clinton had used his powerful position to coerce Lewinsky into the illicit affair. It’s sad that 22 years later, the former president is still having a negative effect on the former intern’s life.
