Monica Lewinsky blew the Internet away Friday after addressing a tweet about poor decision-making.

“What’s the most high-risk, low-reward thing you’ve ever done?” asked the account for Uber Facts, to which the former presidential paramour replied with eye emojis.

The simple statement drew more than 52,000 retweets and her pithy response won praise from the web.

“We don’t deserve you,” said podcaster Bridget Phetasy.

Others felt her reply was not unimpeachable.

“Make no mistake, ‘she/her’ loves the attention, even now,” griped former Met Lenny Dykstra, taking a swipe at the pronouns that Lewinsky has ostentatiously added to her Twitter handle.

“Gets to play the victim … check. Gets to interact with other hotshot loudmouth liberals … check,” the scrappy center fielder added.

Lewinsky’s affair with then-President Bill Clinton when she was a 22-year-old White House intern went on to derail much of his second term and directly led to his impeachment in 1998.

She infamously first caught the philandering president’s eye by flashing her thong underwear at him over the top of her pants – then went on to pleasure him in a series of sordid encounters in the Oval Office.

Clinton’s presidency was saved after he was acquitted by the Senate on a bipartisan 50-50 vote – 17 votes shy of the two-thirds needed to convict.
