Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Hold Back and Blames Russia’s Vladimir Putin for Election Loss
One would think the past few months have been hard for Hillary Clinton with having to deal with the aftermath of losing the presidential election.
Clinton is now starting to make more public appearances and on Tuesday, she attended the Women for Women International Luncheon, and was interviewed by Christiane Amanpour.
Clinton was asked about her loss, and she said it will be in her book, but she does believe misogyny played a role.
“I do think [misogyny] played a role… It is real, it is very much a part of the landscape, politically, socially, economically,”
She also spoke on Russian President Vladimir Putin, and said what everybody has now come to believe.
“Well. He certainly interfered in our election, and it was clear he interfered to hurt me and help my opponent,” said Clinton.
“Look, I think Russia is a great country. I think the Russian people are extraordinarily talented, and I think they are badly governed.”
Clinton went on to say,
“I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter and WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people inclined to vote for me. The evidence for that intervening event is compelling and persuasive. If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president.”
Along with writing her book, Clinton considers herself a part of the resistance.
“I am now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance,” she said when describing what she’s doing these days.
