Hillary Clinton: Misogyny played role in election loss

"And I also hope that they will recognize that we can not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America's doors to them". "I think we should've been more willing to confront Assad".

During her tenure at the State Department and her presidential campaign, Clinton, 69, advocated for more aggressive action to deter Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and said the USA should implement a no-fly zone, the CBS News reported. "I really believe we should have and still should take out his airfields and prevent him [Assad] from being able to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them", said Clinton. In an extensive interview with New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof, Clinton covered a range of issues, including US intervention in Syria and the bipartisan investigation into Russian Federation election interference. "It should have been you", Samantha Bee said during her introduction, to enthusiastic applause.

Hillary Clinton said the USA should "take out" the Syrian regime's airfileds. "Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women, and children", the president said. She said that Republicans should also be concerned of what Russian Federation did. The statement from the former FLOTUS came amid reports that her name is being tossed around as a possible runner in the mayoral race in New York City where Democrat Bill de Blasio is the incumbent.

"It should have been you", she pleaded before the former U.S. Senator from NY took the stage. She got laughs, cheers and a standing ovation. Kristof was referring to the current commander-in-chief, President Donald Trump.

Clinton singled out the Russian hacking that led to Wikileaks' release of Democratic National Convention leadership emails, saying it "should give chills to anyone who cares about democracy".

Clinton made a brief retreat from public life after her presidential loss in November, but has recently become more active in making appearances and criticizing President Trump. "Certainly misogyny played a role", Clinton said.

For a candidate who throughout her public career has been criticized as rehearsed and stiff, Clinton appeared relaxed in front of a friendly audience of about 3,000, most of whom were women.

Watching the Republicans struggle, she admitted, "was somewhat gratifying." .

"I don't take any pleasure in seeing the kind of chaotic functioning [of the current administration]", said Clinton."Here's what I don't understand I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House seems to be pursing".

Turns out Hillary Clinton's favourite meme sums her up perfectly.

"I will put it this way: As a person I'm OK. As an American, I'm pretty anxious", Clinton said.

"Having listened to them talk about repeal and replace for seven years - they had not a clue about how that worked".
