HOPE, Arkansas – If you are over 30 years old you likely remember everything there is to know about Bill Clinton. He had major successes as well as some major failures that are well-documented worldwide. A great economy mixed with purported scandals shaped his 8 years in office and made him front-page news nearly every day. If you are under 30 you have probably heard a great deal about him but are unfamiliar with every kernel of knowledge that built the Clinton brand.
We here at I.S. have decided that the best course of correction would be a series of interviews to help chronicle “Slick Willy” for those who may not be up to speed.
I.S. – Thank you so much for sitting down with us today Mr. President. It is an absolute honor and privilege to have the opportunity to gain some insight into who you are.
B.C. – My pleasure. I LOVE to laugh at your stuff. Just quit picking on me so much.(Laughing)
I.S. – No problem Mr. President. Let’s start to get to know you a little bit.
B.C. – Sounds good.
I.S. – Let’s start with the most important thing that defines you. How did you and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton meet?
B.C. – I remember it like it was yesterday. She was just a small town girl living in a lonely world. She took a midnight train going anywhere…
I.S. – Journey?
B.C. – A little bit but the train broke down. Anyway, I was just a city boy born and raised in south Detroit…
I.S. – Mr. President I thought you were from Hope, Arkansas.
B.C. – I’m from all over. Rover, wanderer, nomad, vagabond,
Call me what you will.
I.S. – Right…. So was your relationship always good? I am sure the political life caused a lot of time apart.
B.C. – They say that the road
Ain’t no place to start a family
Right down the line, it’s been her and me. And lovin’ a political man Ain’t always what it’s supposed to be. Oh, Hill, she stands by me I’m forever hers
I.S. – Is that Journey again?
B.C. – Oh, its been one hell of a journey I’ll tell ya.
I.S. – Ok, moving on. At times there must have been some strain in your relationship with allegations and admitions of infidelity. Was there a reason your name was brought up so often with these other women?
B.C. – Honestly I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get enough girly action. I try, and I try, and I try. Hey, hey, that’s what I say…anyway.
I.S. – Rolling stones?
B.C. – Nah, I’ve tried them all. All shapes and sizes. It doesn’t matter.
I.S. – Yeah, alright how about Mr. Trump? We know both you and Hillary have known him for many years. How and where did you first meet him?
B.C. – I was standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. I was such a fine sight to see. There’s a …….
I.S. – I really don’t think that’s how you and Mr. Trump met.
B.C. – True, I remember now. He was at home, drawing pictures of mountain tops with him on top, lemon yellow sun…
I.S. – Mr. President, that’s ‘Jeremy’
B.C. – No, it’s Donald. His arms were raised in a ‘V’ the dead laid in pools of maroon below.
I.S. – By all accounts you and Mr. Trump were close for some time, even sharing flights together with Jeffrey Epstine. Can you describe how close you were?
B.C. – When I met him I felt like I was always stuck in second gear. It wasn’t my day, my week, my month or even my year. He said to me, “I’ll be there for you when the rain starts to pour. I’ll be there for you as if I’ve been there before. I’ll be there for you as you’ll be there for me too.
I.S. – Mr. President that’s friends.
B.C. – Damn right, for a while we were really really close.
I.S. – Let’s move on to the election. What do you think is the most important thing to remember when we go to vote in November?
B.C. – Decisions, between a family or a porn star I’m alive for sports cars, live it or die whole bar Headache for my management, gossip columns resident Your mom and dad might hate me But in one month I’m the president again.
I.S. – Sir, that’s Busta Rhymes.
B.C. – Damn straight. With the best of them.
I.S. – I see where this is going. Dare I ask what made you decide to reach out for the political life? And do you have any regrets?
B.C. – Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew. When I bit off more than I could chew. But through it all, when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out. And may I say, not in a shy way…
I.S. – You did it your way?
B.C. – Every bit of it.
I.S.- In closing out this first segment I must say that you have shown incredible perseverance in the face of political attacks. Can you describe how this shaped you in your later life?
B.C.- I’ve paid my dues Time after time I’ve done my sentence But committed no crime And bad mistakes I’ve made a few I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through.
I.S. – Because you are a champion?
B.C. – Indeed I am.
