Late-night comedian Trevor Noah on Monday slammed Hillary Clinton for attacking President Trump in “trying to deflect” from her husband’s own sexual misconduct in the White House.

The former first lady said on “CBS Sunday Morning” over the weekend that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, should “absolutely not” have resigned over his affair with Monica Lewinsky, despite changing cultural attitudes toward consent in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Mrs. Clinton declared Ms. Lewinsky was an adult at the time before trying to shift the focus to the sexual harassment allegations Mr. Trump faced before taking office.

“Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies and ridicules?” the twice-failed presidential candidate asked in a clip played by Mr. Noah.

“The Daily Show” host said that was a bad move, Mediaite reported.

“No, Hillary,” Mr. Noah said. “That’s not cool.”

“Maybe it was different in the ‘90s, but today, I think we’re all understanding that there’s a massive power imbalance between an intern and the president of the United States,” he said. “I mean, forget intern, a president with anyone is a power imbalance.

“And what’s also not cool is Hillary trying to deflect and make this about Trump,” he added. “You’re not in a position to be throwing stones at someone, Hillary. Especially when you’re literally sitting in a glass house.”
