What made global news was the fuss Americans made over the incident, the political uproar, investigations, and ultimately accusation and trial on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice by the USA president, for obfuscating and trying to duck questions about a blowjob. By the way - he WAS ACQUITTED of all the charges.
I am sure that no respectable US politician in office, male or female, would hesitate or try to duck questions about having oral sex with someone, especially someone not their spouse, right? Especially if interviewed on global TV with her, not under oath. But he apologized, accepting that US presidents should never lie even about sex or their marriages or their children or how pretty that some infant really is (or isn't).
Just as no male, if caught two-timing a gf or spouse, or questioned about intimate details of their sex life, would duck those questions - right, ladies and gentlemen?
And of course it totally disqualifies someone from any position of trust, in any capacity, because of course all good people volunteer all sexual details when questioned without hesitation. Because it affects how we do our jobs, right?
It wasn't about the sex - except it was, for some Americans and for most politicians.
