Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump’s Inauguration speech “a cry from the white nationalist gut” and an “out-of-body experience” in an interview that aired Sunday.
Clinton told “CBS Sunday Morning,” “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, which was a cry from the white nationalist gut.”
She also added, “He was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others.”
Host Jane Pauley responded, “What you’re saying is millions of white people?” to which Clinton confirmed, “millions of white people, yeah. Millions of white people.”
Clinton also said that in the days following her election loss, “I really struggled. I couldn’t feel, I couldn’t think. I was just gob-smacked, wiped out.”
Hillary has been making headlines once again as her new book, “What Happened,” is set to be released this week. Already, excerpts from the book have surface online.
In one excerpt, Clinton reignites an old feud with Bernie Sanders, accusing him of “causing lasting damage” by criticizing her and accusing his supporters of being “Bernie Bros” who “harassed” Clinton supporters online. (RELATED: Hillary’s Latest Wrath Falls In Bernie’s Lap)
