Bill Clinton Asked Steve Jobs for Help with the Lewinsky Scandal

Portions of Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs have been leaking out with all sorts of interesting tidbits. He preferred Issey Miyake shirts over St. Croix; he thought Mick Jagger was “brain-damaged” when they met; and he believed Bill Gates could benefit from tripping his ass off on acid. The most unexpected thing to come to light thus far though, has got to be a late night call from Bill Clinton asking for Jobs’ help with the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The pair became friends when Chelsea went to Standford and Jobs called to offer them a place to stay when they were in town. Still, he seems like an odd choice for someone to call for advice since Jobs never went through a highly public cheating scandal.

Clinton: So Steve, how do I use your Apple Time Machine? I need to go back to 1994 and not do some stuff. Jobs: It’s not an actual time machine. It’s for backing-up files. Clinton: How fast and how much will it cost for an actual Delorean? Jobs: No. Just no.

Ok, that didn’t actually happen. In reality, Jobs’ advice. “I don’t know if you did it, but if so, you’ve got to tell the country.”

The book comes out on Monday.
