Monica Lewinsky said she starred in a shameful moment with the Zoom calling app. Apparently, after the American ended a private video conference with her community of TED speakers, her ignorance of the popular video call service played a trick on her.
“A word of warning: when you zoom in on the phone, pay special attention to answer privately in front of everyone. It was exciting to share that I was still in my pajamas and braless with my community of TED speakers”Explained the former Bil Clinton fellow in her tweet.
A user has replied to Lewinsky’s message also warning her that the private messages of the application are still available to users if one does not delete them, to which Lewinsky replied saying: “oh fuck”.

Monica Lewinsky titled the TED talk she offered in 2015 as “The Price of Shame.” In it Lewinsky commented on the devastating consequences of having an affair with the then President of the United States, Bill Clinton, something that made her a kind of sex icon by revealing the most sordid details of the sex scandal.
In 2018 Lewinsky wrote a letter to Vanity Fair magazine in which he related that his relationship with Clinton “it was not a sexual assault ” But there was “an abuse of power” relating his case to the #MeToo movement. “This is not just my problem.

In the documentary Hillary, in which the intimate circle – both family and political – of the former first lady and US Secretary of State participated, Clinton justified her case with Lewinsky “to manage anxiety”, since “work pressure” made him feel like a boxer after having fought “30 rounds”.
The affair between the former head of state and the young intern exploded in January 1998, when a friend of hers presented recordings to the FBI where the sexual encounters between the two were reported. The scandal was made public and the democratic president was impeached perjured by the House of Representatives. Eventually, he was exonerated and later re-elected.
During the documentary, however, Clinton showed another position and apologized to the one who was his lover. “I feel terrible that Monica Lewinsky’s life was defined by that, I unfairly believe.”

Tripp He declared having acted for “patriotismBut in public opinion it was portrayed as a symbol of false friend and traitor. In 2018, she again defended her action in a. podcast. “I made a deliberate decision to say that this behavior was unacceptable by the leader of the free world” Tripp died in April of this year.
