Hillary Clinton said in her new book that she agreed with former President George W. Bush’s assessment of President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January.
In her newly released campaign memoir, “What Happened,” Clinton described contrasting her imagined inauguration with the one playing out before her eyes.
“‘That was some weird shit,’ George W. Bush reportedly said with characteristic Texas bluntness,” Clinton wrote.” I couldn’t have agreed more.”
The former secretary of state, who on Sunday described Trump’s inauguration as a “cry from the white nationalist gut,” previously hinted that she might have heard Bush make the statement.
“Put it in your article,” she replied when asked earlier this year about the former president’s comment.
