Hillary Stands By Her 'Deplorables' Remark

11 September 2017

Hillary Clinton on Sunday reflected on the pain of losing the 2016 presidential election, calling the experience one that "hurts a lot" in one of her televised interviews since that defeat last November.

Despite Clinton's denials about the impact of her comment, an internal study conducted on behalf of her campaign suggested that voters were turned off by the quip.

"I love Hillary", said Sen.

"What an opportunity to say, 'Okay, I'm proud of my supporters, but I'm the president of all Americans, '" she said. And there were a large number of people who didn't care.

During their vehicle ride back to their Chappaqua, New York, home, Hillary remembers his unwavering support. "To that he now added, 'That was a great speech".

Hillary also offered an explanation of the infamous "basket of deplorables" label she put on Trump supporters. Although she knew she had to respond to the "virtual avalanche of messages" eventually, for now, her husband of more than 40 years is what she needed. "I was just gob-smacked, wiped out", Clinton recalled.

Clinton calls her use of a private email server while at the State Department "dumb".

While the NY real estate mogul was busy "referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort (and) settle grievances" for millions of Americans, Clinton said she was seeking to offer answers to that resentment, not fan the flames.

"It was a very hard transition", Clinton said of the days following the election.

She said she plans to stay engaged in politics, however, 'because I literally believe our country's future is at stake'.

"I am done with being a candidate".

Clinton answered no when asked if she had any inkling that the election's outcome might not be in her favor.

Not only did she only draft a winning-speech, but she also purchased a home next door to the Clinton family's NY property as a location for White House staff and security.

"I've said it before, I'll say it again, that was my responsibility".

Though the interview did not mention Clinton's perspective on the 2016 Democratic primary, many Democrats have privately and publicly grated at the release of the former candidate's book, noting that it reopens numerous intraparty fights that Democrats have been attempting to put behind them since the election.
