    Monica Lewinsky Has Been Making The Same Great Joke About Her Past For Years And Years, And I Thought We Should Celebrate That

    Monica Lewinsky is legitimately one of the best people on Twitter.

    In case you didn't know, Monica Lewinsky is very, very good on Twitter. Like, Twitter can be an awful cesspool, but Monica is a legit beam of light there. She's consistently charming, real, and cool. She's also hilarious.

    And because American Crime Story: Impeachment just started, Monica has been back in the news again.

    So, I thought it would be a great time to revisit her great sense of humor toward her *situation*...

    ...and by situation, I mean the Clinton impeachment:

    i'm the chick from over 125 rap songs... 😉 https://t.co/0jxLPqqlz7

    Monica has made TONS of jokes about it on Twitter.

    It's always something like this:

    And the thing is, it's funny every time.

    i have an intern joke and it... nevermind. https://t.co/SCHRGYVIJV

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    Seriously, every time:

    #NationalInternDay cannot. believe. that. is. a. thing. *exit stage left* 👀👀👀👀👀👀👀

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    Like her response to the worst career advice she'd ever received:

    @AdamMGrant an internship at the white house will be amazing on your resume. 😳

    Or that time she responded to this weird Mike Pence quote about spending time on your knees:

    And that time she posted a picture of the Gaslight Theater:

    She's always joking about people noticing her:

    “What’s your name?” “Monica.” “Like Monica from Friends?” “Yes. Yes exactly.” https://t.co/5q75NwGtYf

    Like that time someone read her name on a credit card:

    when the guy behind the counter says your full order name (from credit card) and then looks up to hand you your coffee. 😂😘

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    And that time she responded with a simple "if. fucking. only."

    if. fucking. only. https://t.co/6N7SFiKRln

    There was that time she responded to some questionable advice for younger generations:

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    That time she acknowledged her witness testimony:

    gee, too bad i had to give that videoed witness testimony for the senate trial in the clinton impeachment. (i mean, talk about unflattering lighting and having a bad hair day.)

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    And that time she brought it back to the '90s:

    blaming the intern is so 1990's. 🙄 https://t.co/6CGPERpNqx

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    She basically doesn't give a shit anymore:

    i get a version of this tweet a lot. and i feel like i finally nailed the reply today. so, ya know, showing off!

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    It's clear she's moved way beyond that time and has a good sense of humor about it:

    just realized i am more scared of our government now than i was in 1998. and that’s saying a lot. A. LOT.

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    She's really funny!

    too bad it’s @TheOnion https://t.co/pSUswmvSgR

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    It's refreshing:

    dear intern: it gets better. ♥️ ps. don’t wear a beret for awhile, k?

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    And she's used the situation as a learning experience.

    a gentle reminder for ways other than using my name re 1998. let’s not frame it by the woman + youngest, least powerful person involved: The Starr Investigation The 1998 Impeachment The Scandal of 1998 The Clinton Impeachment That Crazy, Fucked Up 1998

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    "Fixed it for you. You're welcome."

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    It’s nice to see her confronting the awful treatment she received in the past head-on:

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    The event may have followed her for the past 20 years:

    dear world: please don't invite me to an event (esp one about social change) and --then after i've accepted-- uninvite me because bill clinton then decided to attend/was invited. it's 2018. emily post would def not approve. ✌🏼Me

    Twitter: @MonicaLewinsky

    But now she finally has her voice back:

    Thank you for making Twitter just a little more bearable, Monica. You rock, never change, etc.
