Monica Lewinsky Joins Taylor Swift’s ‘Asylum’ Trend With Savage Meme Mocking Bill Clinton’s Case

Monica Lewinsky may have won over Taylor Swift’s “Asylum” trend.

After the release of Swift’s song “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” Last week, fans flocked to social media to share photos of places or things that shaped their personality.

In the song, Swift sings the lyrics, “You wouldn’t last an hour in the asylum they raised me in.”

Although the lyrics are seemingly about the singer’s struggles growing up in the spotlight, the Swiss have taken a more humorous approach, often highlighting the trauma they’ve endured — and the activist’s entry was spot on.

On Wednesday, Lewinsky poked fun at her traumatic past by sharing a photo of the White House with the words captioned above.

The bold tweet quickly spread, garnering more than 11 million views in less than 24 hours.

“You win this way.” One X user repliedlike I entered again“If tweeting were an Olympic sport, Monica Lewinsky would have won a gold medal with this gem.”

“Being able to have a sense of humor about what they did to you is so inspiring.” A third wrote.

“Spit today” The fourth joked.

The 50-year-old was a White House intern in her early 20s when she began an affair with then-President Bill Clinton.

Clinton was eventually impeached for his actions in 1998. Meanwhile, Lewinsky was vilified by the public and became an anti-bullying activist years later.

“You go to bed one night as a private person, and the next day you’re a public person and the whole world hates you,” she recalled during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2021. “You may go to prison. Your family will be bankrupt.”

“Just because I wasn’t in the news every night for 20 years the same way I was in 1998, doesn’t mean this story is over. Ten years later, I still couldn’t get a job. I couldn’t support myself.”

That same year, Lewinsky co-produced the HBO Max documentary 15 Minutes of Shame, which detailed the impact of cancel culture.

She also tried to reclaim her narrative by producing an FX series called “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” which explores her relationship with Clinton — who is 27 years her senior.

Despite stepping back from politics in the wake of the scandal, Lewinsky recently teamed up with the reform movement in a campaign to encourage women to “use their voices” at the ballot box.

“A woman of authority is an empowered woman — and an empowered woman uses her voice,” Lewinsky said in a press release.

“It’s very simple: voting is using our voice to be heard, and it is the most defining and powerful aspect of democracy,” she added.
