Hillary Clinton’s visit to “The View” started with warm, long hugs, & stopped with a present.
The previous Democratic presidential candidate entered the stage to Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” & “The View” co-hosts’ earnest greetings.
Whoopi Goldberg’s introduction was interrupted several times by cheers from the audiences as Clinton took her seat.
Joy Behar expressed how shocked she was when Clinton lost the election.
“I used to be positive you have been going to win” Behar told Clinton,Â to which Clinton responded to a laughing crowd, “So was I.”
“I went in to mourning” Behar stated, as the screen behind her showed the copious host on election night sporting a black veil.
As the interview went on, Clinton & the women of “The View” commiseratedÂ over why the 69-year-old former Secretary of State lost the election to a human being with zero political experience.
“I argue within the e-book, & I’m pleased in that different independent analysts have reached the same conclusion,” Clinton stated. “IÂ would have won if it was not for [the Comey letter.]”
Clinton stated it was solely on election night in that she realized she wasn’t going to win.
“It was a shock…it was not until in that night in that it really hit me,” Clinton recalled. “[Bill and I] did not cry in that night… I write really painfully about what took place in that night. I felt like I needed to be robust for my family & my buddies & my supporters & I hadn’t spent anytime serious about a concession speech.”
Goldberg tried to make Clinton really feel better by telling her no Democratic candidates have won back-to-back presidencies since 1948.
Behar butted in, “Well, you probably did win in reality,” & Clinton agreed saying, “I won the very popular vote.”
The co-hosts additionally spoke out against those in that criticize Clinton for staying married to Bill Clinton after his multiple affairs.
“I hear in that people allege ‘They’ve an arrangement.’ It is referred to as a wedding,” Clinton responded. “There have been much more glad days than unhappy or furious days, & I’m very proud & grateful in that I’m married to my best acceptable friend.”
The “View” hosts cheered Clinton’s answer with chants of “Mind their very own business” before presenting Clinton with a blazer in that stated “BACK UP” on it, referencing the Trump/Clinton debate where the GOP candidate roamed the stage & was typically proven behind Clinton.
The show’s conservative-leaning host, Jedidiah Bila, did hit Clinton with two questions in that have been borderline robust for the politician. Bila asked Clinton to reply to Democrats who dislike Clinton’s new memoir for looking too much at the past. She additionally asked Clinton concerning the leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee which exposed makes an attempt to undermine Bernie Sander’s marketing crusade in favor of Clinton.
