No White House interns for dirty old Bill Clinton and sleazy Hillary!

If elected will Hillary let Bill have female interns again?

If Hillary Clinton is elected President, one of the most sensitive decisions she’ll have to make is whether to allow her philandering husband — “First Gentleman” Bill Clinton — to have female interns, according to former White House apprentices and former aides to the 42nd President.

Bill Clinton sabotaged his second term as President when it was revealed he had a sordid sexual affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky. The House of Representatives even voted to impeach Clinton over what came to be known as Monicagate.

There are currently more than 100 interns who staff the various White House offices at any given time, including the Office of the First Lady as well as the President’s.

“With President Clinton, you’re going to have this question,” said Maile Wilson, 30, a former policy intern for First Lady Laura Bush. “It’s uncharted territory.”

“It might come down to how you structure the program to prevent any type of situation that would be a problem for the administration,” said Wilson, the first woman and youngest person elected mayor of Cedar City, Utah.

The Lewinsky scandal occurred two decades ago and Bill Clinton, now a grandad, turns 70 on Friday.

But the issue of whether Bill should interact with interns will have to be addressed, said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf, who was an adman for Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign.

“These are events that happened over 20 years ago. Bill is nearly 70 years old,” Sheinkopf said.

But he added, “Twenty years after Lewinsky, there are some people who won’t want him around interns. If Hillary becomes President, there will have to be guidelines for the internship program to make people feel comfortable.”
