Hillary Clinton Says She's Done Running for Office

Hillary Clinton finds more excuses for why she lost to Trump — including man you’d never expect

Hillary Clinton finds more excuses for why she lost to Trump — including man you’d never expect

Clinton is about to embark on a book tour for her new tome What Happened, which comes out this week, and sat down with Pauley for her first television interview to mark the occasion.

Clinton said she never thought of not going to Trump's inauguration as a former first lady.

She also opened up about the continued hurt she feels following her stunning loss to Donald Trump.

Asked about her "basket of deplorables" comment during the campaign, in which she said half of Mr Trump's supporters were "irredeemable", Ms Clinton sought to repeat the view. "I am done with being a candidate".

Clinton expressed some regrets, including what she described as a failure to appeal to the outrage of the American worker.

"I think it's a little bit silly to keep talking about 2016", the senator added.

Clinton said, "I just kind of went into the bedroom, laid down on the bed, just thought, 'OK, I just have to wait this out".

She argued that her political situation was the "perfect storm" of obstacles, blaming sexism and misogyny, Russian hacking and the release of private internal Democratic party emails, and former FBI Director James Comey's investigation into her email practices.

Clinton also recalled her head-spinning distress on election night and the following morning, when giving her concession speech felt like "an out-of-body experience", she said. And, you know, my share of Chardonnay.

Hillary Clinton has blamed a whole lot of people for losing the election.

"She paints decent Americans, you, as racists", Trump told a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire, after her speech.

"Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner", she said, citing the Access Hollywood tape.

HILLARY CLINTON: I think I am good, but that doesn't mean I'm complacent or resolved about what happened.

While her career as "an active politician" is "over", Clinton said that she is "not done with politics because I believe our country's future is at stake".

"I just went into the bedroom, laid down on the bed, i just thought 'Okay". But there was one person who could help her cope: Bill. It did not matter to them, ' Clinton said.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Clinton saved her most vehement invective for opponent Bernie Sanders, an Independent Senator from Vermont, whom she defeated in the 2016 Democratic Primary.

"I don't know quite what audience he was playing to", Clinton remarked.
