FXs timing of Clinton-Lewinsky TV drama hits Democrats hard

A made-for-TV drama about the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal couldn’t debut at a worse possible time for Democrats — just weeks before the 2020 presidential election.

FX has announced that “American Crime Story: Impeachment” will chronicle former President Bill Clinton’s encounter with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky and the impeachment proceedings that followed.

The release date, Sept. 27, 2020 — could be a political pain for Democrats. Election Day is on Nov. 3.

“Timing is everything and the timing they chose couldn’t be worse for the Democrats,” said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf, whose clients have included Clinton and former Mayor Mike Bloomberg. “It’ll be a great day for Donald Trump.”

Veteran TV reporter Mark Harris tweeted, “Airing this during the final six weeks of the 2020 election is an abysmal idea … I hope FX reconsiders the timing.”

Filmmaker April Wolfe added, “I’m sure this new American Crime Story will be interesting and good but am also sure I won’t be able to handle it coming out right around the 2020 election when Trump desperately wants to rehash Trump vs. Clinton.”

Although neither Bill nor Hillary will be on the ticket, the TV show could haunt whichever Dem becomes the party’s standard-bearer, Sheinkopf said.

“The question will be, especially with the Me Too movement … where was [Joe] Biden and all the others and why didn’t they act? Why didn’t they protect this woman?” he said.

if it actually hurts the democrats, I will put up with it. But of course, that is my wishful thinking, it won’t hurt not one bit. I will just be tortured having to relive that vile BS.

Lewinsky’s co-producing. I won’t watch it. I haven’t watched any of the other seasons of the program.

Agreed. Won’t change a vote.

If that stuff worked Trump wouldn’t have gotten one vote.

Media doesn’t have the power it used to.

although if it makes some high ranking Dems squirm some, I guess I could take that as a win. I think anyway.

Starr Report footnote 210:

Monica and Bill engaged in oral ANAL sex.

Gross huh? Plus you don’t believe me.

Look it up and you’ll see.

It’s in paragraph 115, down about 15% of the way at this link:

Hollywood doesn’t hurt democrats... There must be a twist in the movie that damages Republicans.

This story is BS.

I had a sweet little HP Laser Jet 5L . . . until Mrs. Chandler got the idea to surprise me by printing out the entire Starr Report -- all 453 pages at once, burning out the toner cartridge.
