Hillary Clinton Is Taking Her L Really, Really Hard
She talked about her despair at her recent engagement.
From the moment she postponed her concession speech, it was obvious this wasn't going to be an easy loss for her. I mean, really, 19 months of campaigning and dealing with a sexist, racist, homophobic, pompous bigot would do that to you, right? I'm just guessing.
Hillary confirmed that logic when she made a speech for The Children’s Defense Fund gala last night.
Very honestly, according to the Daily Mail, she confessed that she hasn't had the best of days since Election Day aka Doomsday 2016.
"I will admit coming here tonight wasn't the easiest thing for me," she began. "There have been a few times this past week when all I wanted to do is just to curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house again."
"If there's anyone who knows how to pick yourself up, and get back on your feet and get to work, it is Marian," Clinton said, referring to the organization's founder Marian Wright Edelman. "She has been doing it all of her life, and she has been helping the rest of us do it, too... You don't get to stop paying rent just because things don't go your way."
It sounds like Hillary is trying to make a way to get back to doing good for people while having to give up her dream of becoming the first female president of the United States.
After Clinton's speech, she didn't stick around for the event. The press was in attendance and you can only imagine all of the questions they would have for her.
Still, she ended it on a high note.
"I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election. I am too, more than I can ever express. Our campaign was never about one person or even one election - it was about the country that we love and about building an America that is hopeful inclusive and big-hearted. We have work to do," she said.
