The former president got a little choked up when discussing his electoral vote for Hillary Clinton
On Monday, former president Bill Clinton grew a little teary-eyed while discussing his electoral vote for wife Hillary Clinton. The former president is an elector in New York and said he couldn’t be prouder of the hard work his wife did during the election season. He praised her tenacity through the FBI’s repeated investigations into her private email server, and he shed a few tears as he continued:
“I never cast a vote I was prouder of. You know, I watched her work for two years. I watched her battle through that bogus email deal. She fought through that. She fought through everything, and she prevailed against it all and then at the end … the FBI deal — she couldn’t prevail against that.”
Bill hasn’t been restrained in his criticism on how the FBI dug into Clinton’s emails, which some believed was a contributing factor to her losing the presidential election. In an interesting turn of events, Clinton’s comments came on the 18th anniversary of him being impeached.
In a separate interview with The Record Review, Clinton directed some words towards president-elect Trump. He doesn’t feel that Trump knows much, but, “One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.” He admitted to feeling taken aback at a “cordial” phone call from Trump the day after the election and was amused at how Trump’s team call from Trump the day after the election and was amused at how Trump’s team called the election a landslide victory, stating how his own 1992 election was a landslide
