Hillary Clinton blames election loss on sexism during United Kingdom book tour

For many in the room last night, it seemed that a strained Clinton was laughing tightly through her frustration at how things have turned out.

Clinton, who is in Great Britain to promote her campaign memoir, What Happened, arrived late and wearing a surgical boot to a scheduled appearance on the BBC's The Graham Norton Show.

The former First Lady said her political loss had left her stunned and admitted at times it was hard to get out of bed but long walks in the woods, reading mystery novels, playing with her dogs and yoga helped her to deal with her "grief".

"I think he is part nihilist, part anarchist, part exhibitionist, part opportunist, who is either actually on the payroll of the Kremlin or in some way supporting their propaganda objectives, because of his resentment toward the United States, toward Europe", she said.

A Clinton spokesman did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment in response to the president's tweet. "You said you hope she runs again in 2020". "That is the reason she lost the election", he added.

Hillary Clinton referred to Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election as a "cyber 9/11" at a speaking event in London Sunday. My answer was, "I hope so!", the president wrote in a tweet.

If Clinton did, in fact, decide to run again in 2020, it would be her third attempt at the White House.

"You're disrespecting our flag, and you're disrespecting our country", he said. And when confronted with the reality of her failed campaign-which even she herself acknowledges in the book-she deflected into a verbal bashing of UK Independence Party founder Nigel Farage. "Look, the whole Russian Federation thing was an excuse for the Democrats losing the election, and it turns out to be just one excuse", Trump said.

Mrs Clinton points to examples of releases by WikiLeaks timed to do her maximum damage or distract from Mr Trump's campaign scandals. Notice that Trump doesn't mention one of the biggest factors in the 2016 election.
