Hillary Clinton’s non-stop ‘Excuses Tour’ stopped in New Zealand Monday, where the twice-failed candidate compared President Trump to a “train wreck” and blamed sexism for her disastrous 2016 defeat.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at an event hosted by the Growth Faculty in Auckland when she launched into her anti-Trump tirade; slamming the Commander-in-Chief as a “reality TV” star who easily manipulated the American media.
“You know, in the past, I felt like I had to be, kind of careful in public, sort of keep my guard up. Well those days are over, and I am so pleased that I can pull the curtain back in the book on the unprecedented election – the first reality TV election in American history,” Clinton said.
“Part of our problem was this unprecedented reality TV campaign, and he being the first reality TV candidate in our history,” Clinton told Stuff, New Zealand’s online publication. “The media didn’t know how to cover him. It was like they were watching a car wreck or a train wreck all the time.”
“It was just so hard to understand,” she added. “So, the press didn’t do the job it should have… I think people were almost mesmerized by this display.”
