Bill Clinton joked this week about the possibility of getting away with murder during his administration.
Although, considering how the Monica Lewinsky affair turned out, some critics might say he did.
Getting an early start on the pop culture circuit in the lead-up to wife Hillary Clinton’s anticipated 2016 presidential run, the former president was a guest Tuesday on the daytime talk show “Ellen” and political TV thrillers came up in conversation.
Host Ellen Degeneres mentioned that even with his busy schedule, Clinton still finds time to watch TV and then asked if he watches “Scandal.”
Clinton responded that he does, saying he also watched “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away With Murder,” as well as “House of Cards, which stars “close friend” Kevin Spacey.
“But the thing about ‘Scandal’ and ‘House of Cards’ that makes it fun to watch is that I can’t imagine that either a President Spacey or the president’s chief of staff on ‘Scandal’ could really get away with murder,” Clinton said with a laugh.
“I wish I’d known about that when I was in office,” he joked. “You know, think of all the opportunities I’ve missed. So little time … so many people had it coming. Crazy.”
