Hillary Clinton told Jane Pauley on CBS’s “Sunday Morning” program that she was “done being a candidate” and would not be running in any election in 2020.
Clinton clarified that she was not finished with politics because “our country’s future is at stake” but that she was done actually being a candidate for any position.
“‘I am done with being a candidate, but I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake,’ Clinton said.”
Pauley and Clinton mostly talk about what is in Clinton’s new book What Happened, which came out today, and how Clinton still seemed “gobsmacked” over the defeat to Donald Trump.
In her book, Clinton likes to place the blame on herself while also “dishes out blame” to various other parties that she believes is responsible for her defeat.
She doesn’t fail to mention former FBI director James Comey and his untimely decision to investigate Clinton’s private emails, as well as mentioning Sen. Bernie Sanders and his disruptive efforts in trying to dismantle the democratic party.
Clinton also wasted no time in ridiculing President Trump over his remarks about how being president was harder than he was expecting.
“Well, yeah, because it’s not a show. It’s real. It’s reality for sure,” Clinton said.
Well, the reality is that Trump is now in the position that Clinton thought she was going to be in about a year ago and it’s time for Hillary to move on.
