Monica Lewinsky, private citizen and pop culture punchline, tried to board an airplane in peace, but was followed through check-in by a persistent cameraman.
Lewinsky was flying out of LAX early Friday morning when a cameraman asked her about the 2016 presidential election.
In recent weeks, Lewinsky’s name has been a focal point in the election due to her ties to the Clintons. In the late 1990s, former President Bill Clinton admitted to engaging in a sexual dalliance with Lewinsky, who was then a White House staffer.
“How do you feel about the charges against Donald Trump, the sexual charges?” a TMZ cameraman asked Lewinsky. “Do you feel like he’s fit to be president?”
Lewinsky stayed silent throughout most of the interaction, only speaking to offer some advice to the cameraman.
“It’s 5:30 in the morning,” Lewinsky said with a tinge of annoyance in her voice. “You should be asleep. You should not be at the airport bothering people with your camera.”
