On Thursday, CNN’s Jake Tapper appeared on Chuck Todd’s podcast. During their conversation, both Todd and Tapper expressed frustration that Bill Clinton still hasn’t publicly apologized to Monica Lewinsky after approximately two decades:

TAPPER: I never made light of it at the time, and I never made light of Bill Clinton's ... committing perjury, and I understand why people at the time were upset. I understood it then, but now, having kids, I understand it much more because it's a horrible example because he's setting the example of somebody who uses women for his own personal –

TODD: His own personal pleasure.

TAPPER: Pleasure, right. And from Monica Lewinsky's public statements, you sense that she's just now kind of coming to grips with the relevance of her story to the #metoo movement.

TODD: It galls me that the former president hasn't even simply apologized to her for ruining her life.

TAPPER: It's crazy. It's crazy.

TODD: Her life is never the same. He ruined it; he got to move on.

TAPPER: Oh yeah, he's a multi-millionaire.

TODD: I've never understood, never understood why he couldn't simply apologize to her ... He owes it to her.

TAPPER: I took advantage of you when you were a child, essentially.

TODD: She cannot live a normal life because of his, whatever you want to call it. Whatever it is.

TAPPER: His crude needs.

TODD: Yeah, his carnal needs, and he ruined a woman's life.
