It’s been nearly 20 years since the infamous White House scandal involving Bill Clinton and a young intern named Monica broke. But that doesn’t mean people have forgotten about it.

Especially Hillary…

Hillary Clinton says she’s completely forgiven her philandering husband and his indiscretion. She’s even likened herself to the father in the parable of the lost son saying she’s done a good job of forgiving someone who had “a pretty good time committing every sin that you could list.”

So to say Clinton isn’t sensitive to the whole Monica thing would be an overstatement.

That’s why what happened last week in Iowa was rather noteworthy.

Apparently a University of Iowa student reporter was set to interview Hillary.

Rather than addressing the former Secretary Of State by her first name she called her by the name of her husband’s former mistress.

Reporting in The Tab, Elise Goodvin talks about the unintentional error.

“Have you ever said something and the first thought you have after is “oh f***”? One of those moments where you’re not really thinking straight, and inadvertently words come tumbling out of your mouth, words which compose the worst possible sentence you could say at that given time to the person you’re speaking to?

Well at least you haven’t called the current Democratic frontrunner by the first name of the woman her husband had an affair with.”

So why did she call Hillary, Monica?

Goodvin said she had been speaking with an employee of MSNCB who happened to be named Monica right before she spoke with Clinton.

As IJreview writes:

“I reached out and shook the hand coming towards me, looking to my side and saying ‘it’s nice meeting you, Monica.'”

Realizing her mistake, Goodvin tried to apologize and explain to Clinton that she had been looking at and talking to the Monica that stood beside her, but she wound up blurting out something else that made things even worse:

“‘Oh I meant her [referring to the Monica standing nearby]… not Lewinsky.'”

After the unfortunate incident Goodvin said she was approached by Clinton’s head of media relations and told Mrs. Clinton was done taking questions from her [Goodvin], and that she would be wise to leave at this point.

Goodvin said she learned something from the entire incident.

“So all in all, the moral of this story is to always look at who you’re shaking hands with, and if you say the wrong name, make sure it’s at least not someone who gave their husband a [removed by editor].

Do you find the humor in this story?
