<p>In an interview with Bill Clinton aired on Monday&#39;s NBC <em>Today</em>, correspondent Cynthia McFadden pressed him on the scandal swirling around the Clinton Foundation, but she quickly <strong>moved on to gush over the &quot;heartwarming stories&quot;</strong> <strong>of the charity&#39;s work in Africa.</strong></p>

<p>McFadden, traveling with former president in Africa, began the segment by declaring: <strong>&quot;Bill Clinton is making no apologies</strong> <strong>as he tours some of the African programs his foundation has raised billions to help fund.&quot;</strong> Clinton proclaimed: &quot;I don&#39;t think there&#39;s anything sinister in trying to get wealthy people and countries that are seriously involved in development to spend their money wisely in a way that helps poor people and lifts them up.&quot;</p>
