Bill Clinton says ‘Today’ interview wasn’t his ‘finest hour’

WASHINGTON – Former President Bill Clinton is acknowledging that his combative response earlier this week to questions about Monica Lewinsky wasn’t his “finest hour.

Still, Clinton says, “It was very painful thing that happened 20 years ago,” adding that he had to “live with the consequences every day since.”

In an interview with NBC’s “Today” released Monday, Clinton bristled at questions over whether he should have resigned 20 years ago because of his sexual relationship with the White House intern.

Clinton was asked Tuesday by the host of CBS’ “Late Show,” Stephen Colbert, if he realized why some people thought his response was “tone-deaf” in light of the MeToo movement.

The ex-president responded, “It wasn’t my finest hour,” adding, “I was mad at me – not for the first time.”

‘Fixer Upper’ stars settle with EPA on lead paint violations

WACO, Texas – Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” series, have settled with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on allegations that they used inadequate protection while removing lead paint during renovations.

Under the deal with the EPA, Magnolia Waco Properties LLC, doing business as Magnolia Homes, will ensure compliance with lead-based paint regulations in future renovations. It also promises to educate the public on lead-based paint hazards.

In a statement Tuesday, the EPA says it reviewed video footage from several seasons of “Fixer Upper.” EPA says it found violations of regulations governing lead-based paint exposure.
