Monica Lewinsky continued to prove that she has the best sense of humor when it to the scandal that made her a household name.
On Saturday, Adam Grant, an American psychologist who is currently a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, asked a simple question to his Twitter followers: “What’s the worst career advice you’ve ever received?”
What’s the worst career advice you’ve ever received?
(1) Don’t waste your time helping others
(2) Drop 90% of your projects, because you can only do one at a time
(3) Don’t write a book

While Grant threw out his and many others responded with their answers, Lewinsky swooped in and shut the whole thread down with her response.
She wrote, “an internship at the white house will be amazing on your resume.
an internship at the white house will be amazing on your resume. 😳

Lewinsky’s epic answer was met with a slew of praise for the legendary retort.

Lewinsky is, of course, referring to her affair with President Bill Clinton while she worked at the White House in the mid-1990s.
She testified to having several sexual encounters with Clinton but said the two never had intercourse.
Clinton originally denied anything happened between them but later admitted, “I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate.”
Earlier this year, Lewinsky sat down with John Oliver for an interview about public shaming.
She told Oliver, “It was an avalanche of pain and humiliation, and, obviously, I could not have gotten through it without my family, and, eventually, when I was allowed to talk to my friends, my friends, too . . . At 24 years old, it was really hard to hold on to a shred of dignity or self-esteem when [I was] just the butt of so many jokes and being misunderstood.”
