Bill Clinton Reportedly Watches Show About Beautiful Woman Sleeping with President

Washington and Tony Goldwyn, who plays the president in 'Scandal,' on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.


ABC's Scandal has been a breakout hit of the television season in the ratings and critically, and according to star Kerry Washington, Scandal has a very famous fan: Bill Clinton.

The actress, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention last year, told Entertainment Weekly she was surprised to find out the former president was a fan of the show:

The show has averaged more than 220,000 tweets per episode since January, according to SocialGuide; some of these fans include Oprah Winfrey, Lena Dunham, and Mary J. Blige. "Bill Clinton was another person where I was like, ‘What?! You watch Scandal?!’" Washington says. "I feel like it happens at least once a week — that I am totally floored by somebody who watches the show."

In the show, Washington stars as a crisis communications professional in Washington, D.C., who also has an on-and-off affair with the young president of the United States. 

A Clinton spokesman did not immediately respond to Politico's request for comment.
