The former Secretary of State was speaking to the India Today Conclave event on Saturday when she found yet another excuse for her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump; this time blaming "white women" of both political parties who would have voted for her otherwise.
"Well, I would have to say no, we did not deserve that", Clinton replied. And he was the first reality TV candidate. "And it was meant to unnerve me, of course, because he's a large man".
In the hour-long appearance, Clinton also bemoaned the "reality campaign" tactics of her opponent in the 2016 presidential campaign - musing that perhaps she should have provided more "entertainment" to voters who were responding to Trump's brash campaign of "insulting and attacking". "I'm the mother who says, 'Eat your spinach you'll grow up strong.' Someone else is saying, 'Eat all the fast food and the ice cream you can possibly stick in your mouth'".
"So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign "Make America Great Again" was looking backwards".
"It's fascinating, and something I think will come to a democracy near you at some point".
The moderator asked Clinton why she thinks nearly 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite them knowing about the controversial "Access Hollywood" tape. "He really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior", she said during the event, according to The Washington Post.
