Hillary Clinton is in trouble with Fox News for daring to utter a curse word on a British late-night TV show.
Clinton appeared on BBC’s The Graham Norton Show last Friday during a U.K. tour to promote her book “What Happened,” which details her account of how she fell from ahead to lose the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
During the interview, Clinton recounted her experience while attending the inauguration of Trump as the 45th president of the United States, a title she once hoped would be hers.
Sitting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and his successor former President George Bush, Clinton remembered Trump’s speech as “dark” and “divisive.”
“We were listening to this really dark divisive speech that I describe in my book as ‘a cry from the white nationalist gut’ and I was so disappointed,” she said. “Really so, so sad that it wasn’t an outreach, it was a narrowing and a hammering of what he had said before.”
Apparently she wasn’t the only one who didn’t like Trump’s inauguration speech.
“It was reported that George W. Bush, as it ends, says ‘that was some weird s—t’,” Clinton continued.
Though Clinton said the swear word during an appearance on a TV show intended for mature audiences, Fox News called her out for her potty mouth.
As a former first lady, Clinton’s attendance at presidential inaugurations is traditional — Republican and Democratic ex-presidents and their wives always attend inaugurations to show unity and continuity in government, she explained.
Still, with the sting of her monumental loss still fresh, Clinton said she really tried to get out of attending Trump’s inauguration.
“We thought, Ok maybe others aren’t going, so we called the Bushes, and the elder bushes were in the hospital — which I think was legitimate — 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,’” Clinton said, laughing. After the phone calls were through, Clinton said she turned to Bill and they realized they too had to attend.
