What?! Bill Clinton Asked Steve Jobs For Advice On Monica Lewinsky Scandal!

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.

Awkward!

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!

    Good advice.

    I don't agree with his advice. It was always a private matter. The Republicans on the Supreme Court allowed a sitting President to be sued, and Ken Starr, the rabid prosecutor spent tons of money and time going after Clinton on this, when the majority of Americans from both parties did not care!

    lying under oath in a depostion is always a public matter…lest we forget that is what Clinton did that caused the whole thing to explode on him- so by this time it WAS a public matter

    Bill Clinton stares at his rolodex thinking who can I call for help with my blow jobs scandal. He goes to 'B' for blow and can't find anyone. Then he goes to 'J” for jobs and finds Steve Jobs. He picks up the phone and dials, the rest is history!

    Re: *Sloane – The deposition was taken in the Paula Jones lawsuit. The Republican Judges on the Supreme Court allowed, for the first time, a sitting President to be sued. What was originally a private matter became public due to the partisan actions of the Supreme Court Judges.

    Re: kappuhcheenoh – What ever little why you want to twist it so Clinton sounds like a saint , go for it! Clinton was a moron, he lied publicly and he lied under oath! One is amoral and the other is against the law. Supreme Court is the highest court in the land and their word is final. So you can stand in your sandbox and scream "it's not fair " all you want! And your statement that nobody cared, is bs! A lot of people care if their president lies under oath!

    He had to tell the truth. If he hadn't he would have left himself vulnerable to blackmail. What a dangerous situation that could have turned out to be. He should have realized that. To be such an intelligent man, how could he be so stupid. Hillary may have forgiven him, but I haven't. He was president of the United States! He has no shame. He parades around now like nothing ever happened. How disgusting/disgraceful. Not only did he disgrace himself. He also bought shame to the office of the presidency and he did it in the White House.
