Clinton chided US President Donald Trump's administration for launching an investigation into voter fraud - which she called "voter suppression" - rather than of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
Clinton: No. I would not. She declined to give her last name or say which school she goes to. And it doesn't mean everybody is sexist or everyone is a misogynist, we're just not sure what to make of her.
The former First Lady added that being president is "the toughest job in the world", remarking that: "It used to require a level of curiosity and focus that you would want to think that someone with that responsibility would have". Clinton brushed off her croaky throat and need for a lozenge by saying she was both emotional and battling allergies. Clinton argued during the campaign that questioning the integrity of the presidential election outcome constituted a "direct threat" to US democracy, while Trump repeatedly insisted the system was "rigged" against him. Trump has had a hard relationship with CNN since taking office and has regularly complained about their coverage of his presidency.
Clinton came biting back Thursday morning, trolling Trump with another one of her books.
"Something like 24 percent of the people who voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries ended up voting for John McCain", Sanders said, referring to the Arizona senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee. She has since switched to supporting Trump because she didn't like "the way people were complaining on how Trump wasn't president and making rumors that the election was rigged". I don't know. But that's not the point.
If only Cillizza had bothered to read NPR's reporting, he would have found this following that excerpt where she says she "would not" rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.
Trump slammed Clinton over her new book earlier this week too, tweeting that she "blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss".
