According to Hillary Clinton, she did her best to try to get out of going to President Trump’s inauguration.
“I really tried to get out of going,” Clinton said on “The Graham Norton Show.” “We thought ‘OK, maybe others aren’t going.’”
“We called the Bushes, and the elder Bushes were in the hospital, which I think was legitimate,” she laughed.
“And so then, we called the younger Bushes and they said ‘yeah, we’re going.’ We called the Carters, and they said ‘yeah, we’re going,’ so Bill and I looked at each other and we said, ‘We gotta go.’”
She said she was hoping Trump would “rise to the occasion of being our president” during his inaugural speech, but said “that didn’t happen” due to his “dark, divisive speech.”
She has called that address a “cry from the white nationalist gut.”
In the speech rumored to have been written by former staffer Steve Bannon and current staffer Stephen Miller, Trump envisioned an America on it’s knees and said, “This American carnage stops right here and right now.”
