WATCH: Hillary Clinton reflects on election loss with Jane Pauley on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’
CBS Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley landed this first interview with Hillary Clinton since the publication of her new book What Happened. It’s worth watching. It’s interesting how painful it remains – not just for Clinton but for so many of us who still want to wake up from what feels like a very, very bad dream. Clinton reveals how she felt attending Trump’s inauguration speech – in keeping with former First Lady protocol – and it wasn’t pleasant.
“I’m a former First Lady, and former presidents and First Ladies show up. It’s part of the demonstration of the continuity of our government. And so there I was, on the platform, you know, feeling like an out-of-body experience. And then his speech…”
Ah, yes, the “This American carnage stops” speech. Trump, Clinton said, blew “an opportunity to say, ‘Okay, I’m proud of my supporters, but I’m the president of all Americans.’ That’s not what we heard at all.” What we heard, Clinton said, “was a cry from the white nationalist gut.”
