Monica Lewinsky Says She Thought Bill Clinton's Jizz on Her Dress Was Spinach Dip

Source - It’s the most infamous stained dress in presidential history, but Monica Lewinsky says when she wore it after her widely chronicled hookup with President Bill Clinton, no one noticed.

“I went to dinner that night. None of these people said to me, ‘Hey, you’ve got to go to the bathroom, you’ve got stuff all over your dress,’” Lewinsky said in “The Clinton Affair,” a new A&E series.

She said she also didn’t spot the telltale semen stain that proved she and Clinton were more than just friends.

Lewinsky went into detail about the day the piece of evidence was created, as she continued to carry on a years-long relationship with Clinton in the early months of 1997, after he won re-election.

Clinton had invited Lewinsky to a White House radio ad, she recalled.

“He said he had a present for me. I didn’t quite know — would I get to see him alone? Wouldn’t I?” Lewinsky said. ...

He also gave her a “really beautiful copy” of “Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman.

“It was a very meaningful present to me. It’s an intimate book that you don’t give lightly." ...

“And so we moved to the bathroom and were more intimate. There was some attention paid on me and then I was reciprocating, where up until that point he had always stopped before completion on his part,” Lewinsky said, delicately trying to explain their encounter.

“I sort of stood up and said I wanted to move past that stage and so he finally said OK.”

That’s when the dress was soiled, but Lewinsky didn’t notice at the time.

“So that finished and then I hugged him after. And he hugged me,” she said. “And off I went.”

In 1998 grand jury testimony, she said she initially thought the marks on her dress “could be spinach dip or something.”

I don't know if there's ever been a public figure harder to pin down than Monica Lewinsky. She's been a household word now for 20 years and for the life of me, I just can't get a read on her. Because nobody toggles back and forth between completely different public personae than she does.

One interview she's a victim of workplace harassment. The next, she was an independent woman in total control of her own sexuality. Then she's an early pioneer of #MeToo. Next, she's been bullied and slut-shamed like nobody ever has. Then it's she and Clinton had a mutually respectful relationship, before switching back to she was coerced into blowing him by the imbalance of their power paradigm.

I mean, which is it? How many times have we heard her talk about how difficult it was to have her name become a noun? THE go-to shorthand for when you wanted to make reference to blowjibbers in polite company. To her it was mortifying and an invasion of privacy. Now it's 2018 and she's pretty much back to bragging about it. Telling the story like you'd brag to your friends about scoring Dumpster Head out back behind the club. And even here she can't make up her mind about whether it was nice, simple, loveless hookup with a happy ending or a romance. "Leaves of Grass"? Really? Like Gale Boetticker gave to Walter White in Season 3? This one story sounds half like a post on a Reddit sex thread and half like a passage from a romance novel at the same time.

Which is fine by me. Monica is a grown woman. One of the few who can say she gave nogging to the most powerful man in the world in his office. So you do you. It's just a little hard to say a thousand times how much you're trying to put that all in the past and then do a TV docuseries where you get into the details and compare the President's boy butter to spinach dip. Even after 20 years, we can't stop talking about it until she stops talking about it first.
