Good thing the weekend is upon us because Monica Lewinsky needs a break. "This is definitely an 'are you f---ing kidding me' kinda day," Lewinsky tweeted before noon Friday, per the Daily Beast. The outlet suggests the statement came in response to news that Ken Starr, the former independent counsel whose report led to Bill Clinton's impeachment, had joined President Trump's defense team. She might also have been referring to Jared Kushner's Time cover story, published Thursday. It includes a scene in which Kushner shows journalist Brain Bennett around his West Wing office, adjoining Trump's private dining room. Pointing to a spot on a wall where a door once led to the president's study, he notes, "This is where Monica used to come in." (More Monica Lewinsky stories.)
