You’d think Bill Clinton would avoid anything prurient after he almost lost the presidency over (and over seems the appropriate word) Monica Lewinsky.
Not our Bill. Caution isn’t part of his personality. According to the Washington Free Beacon, ABC’s show “Scandal” counts him among its fans. In particular, Clinton likes star Kerry Washington.
The actress, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention last year, told Entertainment Weekly she was surprised to find out the former president was a fan of the show:
The show has averaged more than 220,000 tweets per episode since January, according to SocialGuide; some of these fans include Oprah Winfrey, Lena Dunham, and Mary J. Blige. “Bill Clinton was another person where I was like, ‘What?! You watch Scandal?!’” Washington says. “I feel like it happens at least once a week — that I am totally floored by somebody who watches the show.”
In the show, Washington stars as a crisis communications professional in Washington, D.C., who also has an on-and-off affair with the young president of the United States.
No wonder Republicans don’t watch ABC.
