Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence on Sunday called the Monica Lewinsky scandal “the most appalling behavior” of any president in U.S. history.

{mosads}During an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation,” the Indiana governor noted that his running mate, GOP nominee Donald Trump, apologized for remarks he made about groping women in an 11-year-old video that surfaced earlier this month, but former President “Bill Clinton didn’t just talk about doing things, he did them.”

“It took a while to find all that out. He was under oath in 1998 and he finally came clean on having taken advantage of a 23-year-old intern at the White House named Monica Lewinsky, in the most appalling behavior by an American president in the history of this country,” Pence said.

Multiple women have come out in the past week to level accusations of sexual assault against Trump. The real estate mogul and his campaign have denied all of the women’s allegations.

Pence argued that media outlets are focusing on “unconfirmed, unsubstantiated accusations” of sexual assault against Trump rather than the “avalanche of hard evidence” of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s corruption found in a trove of stolen emails published by WikiLeaks.

“People are getting awful tired of this two-on-one fight with many of you in the national media doing half of Hillary Clinton’s work for her every day,” Pence said.
