Former President Bill Clinton is acknowledging that his combative response earlier this week to questions about Monica Lewinsky wasn't his "finest hour".
Still, Clinton says, "It was [a] very painful thing that happened 20 years ago," adding that he had to "live with the consequences every day since".
In an interview with NBC's "Today" released on Monday, Clinton bristled at questions over whether he should have resigned 20 years ago because of his sexual relationship with the White House intern.
Clinton was asked on Tuesday by the host of CBS' "Late Show", Stephen Colbert, if he realised why some people thought his response was "tone-deaf" in light of the MeToo movement.
The ex-president responded, "It wasn't my finest hour," adding, "I was mad at me — not for the first time."
