Hillary Clinton “ve opened” about her failed presidential campaign, how she managed losing to a reality TV superstar, and what that nighttime was really like when she went in expecting to be the first female American chairman.
In a CBS Sunday Morning interview with anchor Jane Pauley( Clinton taped the segment Friday at her New York home ), Clinton appeared back at the past 10 months and shared some inside view of the campaign against Donald Trump.
Since the election, and with a book coming out this week detailing about what happened, Clinton made clear in the Sunday interview that she’s done operating for public agency. “I am done being a candidate, ” she said. But she’s not done with politics, she assured.
Clinton “was talkin about a” the night and days after “shes lost”.
Late on election nighttime after recognizing this is not just running as expected, she called Trump to concede and then she called President Obama. “I felt like I had let everybody down, ” she said.
“I felt like I had let everybody down.”
After an unexpected loss, she admits that she hadn’t prepared for this scenario. “I had not drafted a concession speech, ” she said with a sad laughter. “I had been working on a succes speech.”
As to how she dealt with the enormous political blow, she cleaned, took plenty of long strolls in the timbers, and detected the benefits of yogic breathing.
“Off I went into a delirium of closet clean and long strolls in the lumbers, and playing with my puppies, and yoga — alternative nostril breathing, which I highly recommend — trying to tranquilize myself down. And, you are familiar with, my fair share of chardonnay.”
Despite the gags about how she coped, she acknowledges she truly fought: “I couldn’t feel, I couldn’t belief. I was just gobsmacked, wiped out.”
Looking back at the election, Clinton again called Trump a creep and talked about practice sessions to develop for Trump “scowling and leering” at her at the second debate — right after the “grab them by the pussy” Access Hollywood tapes leaked.
After remaining relatively quiet about her personal take on the campaign, with the book came to see you now we’re hearing a lot more of the details straight from Clinton. The interview is embedded above.
