By Michelle MalkinFox News — With President Donald Trump under fire for his handling of the #meToo movement, Fox News contributor Michelle Malki is asking viewers to help them heal from the impact of the movement on their lives.
The #MeItMe campaign, started by former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and others, has been criticized for not offering any concrete answers to the question of whether President Trump is a serial sexual abuser.
Lewinsky’s allegations against Trump, which he denies, led to his resignation from the presidency in disgrace.
Malki, who worked for Bill Clinton’s White House during the 1990s, spoke with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly about the #MEit movement on Thursday.MALKI: So I wanted to ask you, if you had a message for the millions of people who have been affected by #Meit, how do you want them to respond?
O’REILLY: Well, I would like them to be empowered.
Well, it’s true that the President has not spoken about #MeIts, but it has been a long, long time coming.
So I want to see them heal.
And I would also like them understand that their feelings about it, they are not the first to have them.
O’RELLY: But I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you that he’s been accused of that, too.
So we have a lot of people that have felt like they were silenced, that they’ve been attacked.
I would hope that when they have a conversation with someone about this, they can look at what they’re feeling and say, “What is this, the president of the United States?
Are you telling me I am not allowed to feel this?”
O’REGILLI: You know, I don’t think there is anything to be done about it other than to talk to them.
O’RANNIGAN: And to try to figure out what is going on, what is the solution.
Malki is an award-winning journalist, author and political commentator.
She is the author of the book, “The Man Who Would Be President: Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinski and the Battle for the White House.”
O’Neill also spoke with O’Brien.
OBELLI: But you know, what you are saying is that the president has not been willing to step up and talk about this.
But I think he has been reluctant to do it, as you mentioned, in an attempt to be a kind of a peacemaker.
So you are asking a lot.
And so I would just like you to think about that and, you know…
I think the best thing for people to do is to try and figure out how to deal with this.
That’s the most important thing, right?
That’s what I would tell people.
Obeill and O’Reillig are guests on “Fox & Fox News Saturday.”
OBEELLI: It is important to remember that this was a very traumatic time for the President.
He was attacked, and the allegations came out, and he was forced to step down.
He then became the victim of another attack, which is what he is doing right now.
MALIKI: And that is why we need to come together as Americans.
It is not just about Trump.
It’s about how we all feel, and that is the real issue here.
