“As a person, I’m O.K.,” she said. “As an American, I’m pretty worried.”

 

“As any sane, person, informed, humbled, educated and not brainwashed, Donald Trump’s Policies against Women, Immigrants, Health Care, Climate Change and the Trump Administration in complete Chaos, it is fair to say, we are all worried, here in America and abroad, especially when the Republican Congress are enabling Trump’s insanity.” [Sheriff Ali]

 

Hillary Clinton NYT Interview:

 

 [NYT] “In the most wrenching, humiliating way possible, Hillary Clinton has been liberated. She is now out of the woods again, and speaking her mind.

 

In her first interview since the election, she acknowledged that she had expected to defeat Donald Trump and that the outcome had been “so devastating.”

 

“I just had to make up my mind that, yes, I was going to get out of bed, and, yes, I was going to go for a lot of long walks in the woods. And I was going to see my grandchildren a lot and spend time with my family and my friends. They have rallied around me in an amazing way.”

 

“As a person, I’m O.K.,” she said. “As an American, I’m pretty worried.”

 

Clinton spoke to me for more than 45 minutes on stage Thursday at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit. She seemed relaxed and comfortable, much less guarded than during the campaign.

 

I’ve known Clinton a bit for many years, and when she was running for office she was always monumentally careful in her language — a natural impulse when critics are circling, but it also diminished her authenticity as a politician. Her prudence came across to voters as “calculating.”

 

Now she’s out of her shell, freed by defeat, and far more willing to speak bluntly.

 

“Certainly misogyny played a role” in her loss, she said. “That just has to be admitted.”

 

She noted the abundant social science research that when men are ambitious and successful, they may be perceived as more likable. In contrast, for women in traditionally male fields, it’s a trade-off: The more successful or ambitious a woman is, the less likable she becomes (that’s also true of how women perceive women). It’s not so much that people consciously oppose powerful women; it’s an unconscious bias.” Open NYT Link For One Of The Most Amazing Hillary Clinton Interviews: https://nyti.ms/2ojG3bp
