Hillary Clinton To Stephen Colbert: "I Am Not Going Anywhere" Hillary pulls no punches on Trump, Putin, and her election loss. Plus, watch an exclusive web extra!
Posted on Sep 20, 2017 12:40am

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her first late-night television appearance since the presidential election, joining Stephen Colbert on The Late Show for a wide-ranging interview that covered what happened in 2016 and what's happening today in the Trump administration.

What Happened also happens to be the title of her new book. She called the process of reliving the election "painful and horrible," but explained in the interview why she felt it was important for her to address the events of the past couple years.

After assuring her supporters that "I am not going anywhere," Hillary's first segment on Tuesday night tackled Russia and her take on their efforts to influence the election—plus the ongoing risks in 2018 and 2020. She addressed Putin's role directly, saying that "he really doesn't like democracy." She also described her personal interactions with him as only a former Secretary of State could do, from Putin's his tendency to manspread to an unexpected "invitation."

In the night's second interview segment, Hillary turned her attention to some of the things President Donald Trump is doing now, including criticism of his "dark, dangerous" speech to the United Nations. She also spoke about how to lead with diplomacy and what she would have done in that speech had she been at the dais.

Oh, and there was chardonnay.
