Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted she sat on her couch while women took to the streets for the Women’s March in her new memoir released Tuesday.

Clinton explained that she stayed home from the Women’s March because she didn’t want to be a distraction, choosing instead to watch the march from her couch, she wrote in “What Happened.”

“The last thing I wanted was to be a distraction from the genuine outpouring of grassroots energy. If I showed up, nasty politics would unavoidably follow. So I sat on my couch and watched in delight as the networks reported huge crowds in dozens of cities across the United States and around the world,” Clinton wrote in her new book.

Clinton’s new book, “What Happened,” examines the 2016 election and explains her stunning loss. In over 500 pages, Clinton blames white voters, the FBI investigation into her emails, Vermont Sen. Bernie  Sanders, sexism, and misogyny, among other things for the loss.

Clinton added that she got her information on the happenings of the Women’s March from Twitter and friends as she sat on her sofa.

“Friends sent me excited reports of packed subway cars and streets overflowing with women and men of all ages. I scrolled through Twitter and sent out gratitude and good vibes,” Clinton wrote.”Were we now seeing the stirrings of something similar in the streets of our own country? It was awe-inspiring, as I said on Twitter at the end of the day.”
