Hillary Clinton: Donald Trump Turned Out to be a Very Effective Reality TV Star

Hillary Clinton ripped Donald Trump during her first full interview since the election, telling Jane Pauley on CBS News Sunday that he turned out to be a “very effective reality TV star” to his supporters. Clinton’s new memoir, What Happened, comes out on Tuesday. It is expected to be a bestseller.

Pauley also asked Clinton about her “basket of deplorables” comment. She said, “I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner. I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable. I thought his behavior as we saw on the Access Hollywood tape was deplorable, and there were a large number of people who didn’t care. It did not matter to them, and he turned out to be a very effective reality TV star.”

She also jabbed Trump really hard on his inauguration speech, saying being at his inauguration was “like an out-of-body experience” and that his speech was a “cry from the white nationalist gut.”

“But I’m a former first lady, and former presidents and first ladies show up,” Clinton said. “It’s part of the demonstration of the continuity of our government. And so there I was, on the platform, you know, feeling like an out-of-body experience. And then his speech, which was a cry from the white nationalist gut.”
