Default What would the reaction be to a Lewinsky scandal today?

I don't mean with Trump, or having this be a left vs. right thing.

I'm talking about just the age of social media and the impact that this info-at-your-fingertips era would have on a situation like that paralyzing Congress for a year. Would the girl get more torn apart and embarrassed today (if that's possible), or be able to find support in more people vocally backing her up instead of blaming her for something the President was always completely at fault for?

It's hard to say for sure, but it's kind of crazy how a scandal can be made way bigger or way smaller based solely on the time in history that it took place.

Lets say it did happen with Trump. He'd get absolutely crucified for it until his death

I imagine there would be some slut shaming blowback but a lot of the feminist types wouldn't know where to take it. Will they consider it slut shaming to hate on the woman even though she was ****ing a married man? Hard to say.

I still don't get how the media and the left basically took a hands off approach to Robert Byrd being a former KKK grand wizard. By 2002 pretty much everyone had the internet and knew Robert Byrd's racist history but no one cared and he was able to remain a democrat in high standing until his death in 2010. That has always puzzled me. Even if his constituency didn't care, you figure the media would have eaten him alive years before his death as a sitting senator.

Trump - "I could sleep with a hooker in the middle of the street and I wouldn't lose a vote."

And he wouldn't because he represents white supremacy.

You mean he'd be voted to a second term with ease.
