WASHINGTON (CBSDC) David Letterman regrets the way he treated Monica Lewinsky throughout the years over her affair with then President Bill Clinton while she was a White House intern.
With retiring ABC News Barbara Walters as his guest on his CBS show Wednesday night, The Late Show host said he started to feel bad about the role he played taking shots at Lewinsky after she penned a story for Vanity Fair opening up about the affair and the troubles she had finding a job.
Now I started to feel bad because myself and other people with shows like this made relentless jokes about the poor woman and she was a kid. She was 21, 22, Letterman said, adding that it was a sad human situation.
Letterman continued: I feel bad about my role in helping push the humiliation to the point of suffocation.
Walters said it was time to turn the page on Lewinsky.
She has been ridiculed now for all these years and she is an intelligent woman, Walters told Letterman. I wish her well.

But he will call Palins daughter a whore screw him
I feel bad about both my children knowing about BJs before they got out of junior high school.
in the runup to a hillary candidacy for president, the lewinsky boil needs to be successfully lanced by all the leftys.
You should feel bad about your role period, EX-Hoosier.
So the senile old shit is another example of, “do as I say & not as I do”.
He loved those attaboy’s, and slaps on the back for a jib well done from the New York Media wonks.
Disingenuous piece of crap...
And he enjoyed the same celebrity while attacking Sarah Palin. The libs f-in LOVED it. How many attaboys from the New York lefty’s did he get for that, at those Manhattan Parties he likes to attend??
> David Letterman regrets the way he treated Monica Lewinsky...
No he doesn’t, it’s part of the Democrats’ War on Women, just as his philandering was, the humiliation of his most recent wife and his only child.
He’s a Demwit, and had the nerve to deny that he’d ever registered as one, put his staff on this, and admitted on the air that he had registered as a Demwit a few years earlier.
They destroy her and then feel bad about it, then wish her no ill will.
How noble of them.
Cry me a river Dave.
Still screwing young females on your staff ??
Lecherman has his own history of screwing internee. FU Lecherman.
On the plus side, his impending divorce is going to cost him $200 million.
now he feels bad. loser.
I’m with you. I bet we’ll never hear these “late night” bozos tell us about how bad they feel about their role in trashing Sarah Palin and her kids. They might say they just got caught up in the Obamamania that was “sweeping” across freeloader land.
Beat me to it.
Dried up, bucktoothed piece of garbage.
Beat me to it.
She knowingly had sex with a married man. She deserves worse than she got.
I don't disagree, but their motivation was insidious.
They were only concerned with making sure the married man didn't have to face any consequences and they accomplished that by destroying her.
Monica was a willing girlfriend.
Paula Jones was a state employee, at work, when Governor Clinton had a state trooper fetch her, where he then exposed himself to her, and she fled the room.
Aside from Governor Palin, no American female has been more trashed that Paula Jones.
If Letterman really felt bad he would use his money, contacts and influence to help her. The truth is super wealthy liberals pretend to feel the pain of others but when it comes to actually lifting a finger, or taking money out of their own pockets, they walk away.
Thanks for sharing. DIAF, loser.
Letterman is a pig.
David Letterman isn’t particularly my favourite creature in the world, but I’m going to take him at his word. He’s making a public statement. Should he make apologies to other people? Perhaps so, but he’s making a public statement about Lewinsky, whom he probably really skewered over the years, so his apology and that realization is maybe a good start in my opinion. Lewinsky was a mixed up girl looking for love, affection, and attention in the wrong fashion with a very powerful man that didn’t have her best interest at heart. Been there, done that...just not the same circumstances and not in a public way. I hurled some stones at her, too, probably along the way. I’m thinking back, and I don’t know that she had anyone in her corner. Not women. Not men. Not left. Not right. Unless she does something EVIL (I’m talking psychopathic) in the future, I will not do that any longer. I refuse to dog pile on people any more...Obama et. al. and EVIL people being exceptions and are FAIR GAME IMO. I wish her the best in having a happy life, being a good person, and finding meaning for her life. It’s human compassion and we all need that.
I was trying to think how to put it, and there you nailed it!
However, she had the most powerful people in the world after her who labeled her "stalker" among other such things to deflect the blame from Clinton and no help from NOW or other women's groups.
That was atrocious.
“Walters said it was time to turn the page on Lewinsky”
In other words sweep it under the rug, we have Hillary running for President. What a bunch of losers.
He’s just jealous that it wasn’t him sucking on that ‘cigar’.
Almost everything that happened to Lewinsky, including any unjustified ridicule by Letterman, was the fault of Clinton. It is he who deserves the shame of having squandered his time in office by abusing this young woman.
I won't hold my breath waiting for someone like Letterman to see what master he was serving.
They gave Linda Tripp real hell.
The description writes itself...ugh.
Thanks, trisham. ;)
I’m not gonna say she was not an opportunist. But BC held the keys to the Oval Office! An Immoral Ass that forgot the three most important things, God, Country, Family,~ And Defiantly had no Honor!
Nope he is all part of the plan to put this all behind us as Hillary ramps up for 2016
I feel bad about my role in helping push the humiliation to the point of suffocation.
You should have allowed her to come up for some air more often.
They would do it again in a heartbeat to save a RAT president.
I agree with what you say. I’ve never watched Letterman and never will, and I don’t take seriously any “regret” he claims to have about the matter. He’s nothing but garbage. As for Miz Walters, the wrinkled old Methuselah should have been put out to pasture eons ago. She’s another one I’ve never watched, as I was never interested in anything she had to say. A pox on both of these losers.
A 14 yr old at that time!
Talk about a war on children.
How about making up sex jokes about Palin’s underage daughter? No problem there?
I don’t know how bringing the subject up and apologizing to Lewinsky helps the Clintons, but my mind isn’t big enough to know all the intricacies and workings of these vast conspiracies.
You wait, Lewinsky will emerge as a big Clinton supporter. She is getting paid to forgive. Yuck. This is all probably a set up.
of course it is. thats the way the clintons have always done everything.

Exactly the point. Letterman is just doing his duty to Hiliary by these quotes.
give her $10 million and i may believe you, dick - i mean dave.
Letterman should feel bad that he is taking up air another could breathe.
