Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were spotted strolling along a Hamptons beach this week sporting long pants and sullen faces.

The former first couple walked on the sand in the sunny Amagansett on Tuesday, August 24, as Bill wore a black t-shirt, jeans, and a baseball cap, while Hillary was garbed in baggy blue pants, a long sleeved top, and hat. The beachside stroll came just days before the slated release of the FX limited series “Impeachment: American Crime Story" on September 7. The show is said to chronicle the former president's sex scandal involving then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky, Fox News reported.

The show is centered on the "national crisis" that saw Clinton deny having sexual relations with Lewinsky, and will track the events that led to his impeachment on December 19, 1998. The drama boasts a talented cast starring Clive Owen as Clinton, Edie Falco as Hillary, Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, and Beanie Feldstein as Monica. The series is spread across ten hour-long episodes but the most intimate it gets is a kiss between Lewinsky and Clinton, the Daily Mail reported.

According to show writer Sarah Burgess, the reason for such restraint is cold comfort for Hillary, considering most people know the "graphic sexual detail" of the 90's White House scandal that made Monica's blue dress as sensational as herself.

Speaking to Deadline, executive producer Brad Simpson seemed confident the former first couple will avoid watching the show. “No one, as far as we know, from the Clinton camp has seen this series,” Simpson said. “Of course, I’m curious what they would think.” Simpson added of Hillary, “I don’t imagine she will watch, no matter how emphatic we are to her.”

The Clintons were reportedly celebrating Bill's milestone 75th birthday in the Hamptons. The couple walked the beach for almost half a mile before Hillary took a break on a boardwalk while her husband headed off the beach and walked up the stairs towards Amagansett's famous Bell Estate, which is an enclave of multi-million dollar houses. The former president returned after a brief sojourn and joined his wife to resume their shoreline stroll, according to the Daily Mail.

A number of well known politicians have been spotted around the Hamptons in recent days. New York Gov Kathy Hochul attended an event in Southampton last weekend, days before she took her oath to replace her disgraced predecessor Andrew Cuomo.

That said, critics of the Clintons poked fun at the couple's day out on the beach, with Hillary bearing the brunt of the mockery. "Bill and Hillary Clinton were spotted on the beach Tuesday during their annual Hamptons getaway now that Epstein’s Island is no more," ex-NYPD officer John Cardillo tweeted. "Among Donald Trump's greatest accomplishments was preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming President, pictured on beach sans pantsuit," filmmaker Joel Gilbert added. "Something tells me Americans probably shouldn't be taking health or medical advice from her..." Washington Times columnist Tim Young wrote.

"Looking at the pictures of Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton walking the beach it certainly looks like they are eating quite well," one Twitter user quipped.

"A slew of people believe that @BillClinton is a lucky man to have #HRC for as Frankie Valli sang, "Big girls don't cry." I'm not saying that @HillaryClinton isn't his trophy wife, but it's patently obvious it wasn't for 1st place," a comment read.

"Saw your picture today walking on the beach in the White privileged Hamptons. This is just a suggestion but if you want to make it to another election you might want to walk away from the dessert table. Just saying!" another joked.
