What a weird conversation that must have been.
In the new Steve Jobs biography, author Walter Isaacson reveals that Jobs was asked to give President Bill Clinton advice on that whole Monica Lewinsky situation.
Back in 1998, Clinton was accused of having an affair with the then-intern, which he denied for months.
During a "late-night phone conversation," Clinton asked Jobs for advice on how to deal with the scandal. Jobs told him:
"I don't know if you did it, but if so, you've got to tell the country."
"There was silence on the other end of the line," Jobs says in the book.
That was probably the best advice Clinton received, though. Honesty is always the best policy!
If you're curious about more interactions with Jobs and celebs, Steve Jobs the biography goes on sale October 24. It's sure to be an interesting read indeed!
