Donald Trump’s win of the US election comes as a surprise, still, to many American citizens and even people around the world. Naturally, one of those people includes Hillary Clinton, whom sources stated was “devastated” after Trump’s win by the electoral college.
In her new memoir, Hillary Clinton tried to make sense of it all and even admitted that she didn’t want to go to his inauguration.
During an appearance on the Graham Norton Show, Clinton claimed she didn’t want to go. Hillary, who is a former first lady due to the presidency of her husband Bill Clinton, had to face the reality that she lost to Donald Trump who has proved to be a contentious figure.
She claimed, “we thought maybe others aren’t going, so we called the Bushes.” According to the former presidential candidate, some of the senior Bushes were in the hospital which seemed like a legitimate excuse no doubt.
However, the younger Bushes revealed they would go, and the Carter’s went as well, so the Clintons realized they had to attend the event as well to appear professional at least.
Despite the controversial US campaign, Clinton hoped there would be a semblance of rationality in Trump’s speech. However, she claimed it seemed more like a bad dream.
She explained, “I wanted him to rise to the occasion of being our president,” and that didn’t pan out the way she expected or hoped. Clinton stated, “we were listening to this dark, divisive speech I describe as a ‘cry from the white nationalist gut.'” Hillary added that she was “disappointed” by his speech, and became exasperated by Trump’s choice of policy later on in his presidency.
