Twice-failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows on both sides of the Atlantic Friday, likening her “polarizing” public persona to Winston Churchill while speaking with a British newspaper.
The former Secretary of State was speaking with Guardian when she was asked to comment on her “polarizing” persona in the United States, saying “I’m sure they said that about Churchill between the wars, didn’t they?”
“I mean, I’m not comparing myself, but I’m just saying people said that, but he was right about Hitler, and a lot of people in England were wrong. And Churchill was a pain. He kept popping up all the time,” she added.
“I love what I do and I care about a lot of things, so I’m very interested in what people are doing to try to figure stuff out and solve problems. So it’s not really work to me. No, it doesn’t feel like work,” said Clinton.

CLINTON CAVES: Hillary Says She ‘Meant NO DISRESPECT’ to Female TRUMP Voters
Twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is backing away from comments she made last week when she viciously attacked “white women” who voted for President Trump; saying her comments were “misinterpreted” and that she “meant no disrespect.”
The former Secretary of State was responding to a fierce backlash against comments she made while speaking in India, saying “white women” only voted for Trump because they were pressured to do so by their “husbands, bosses, and sons.”
Clinton posted a response on her official Facebook page, saying “I also mentioned something in passing that’s gotten a lot of negative attention.”
“There is anecdotal evidence and some research to suggest that women are unfortunately more swayed by men than the other way around,” she writes. “I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.”
Clinton’s comments were harshly rebuked by leading Democrats and other liberal lawmakers last week, with the hosts of ABC’s ‘The View’ slamming the former candidate for her inflammatory rhetoric and labeling her a “political virus” on the Democratic party.

HERE WE GO AGAIN: Hillary Blames ‘SEXIST’ and 'FRIGHTENED' Trump Voters for 2016 DEFEAT
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her non-stop excuses tour Monday night, telling a packed crowd that “sexism” and “misogyny” ultimately cost her the 2016 race for the White House.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at a Human Rights event in the nation’s capital when she lashed out at Trump supporters for “going backwards,” saying GOP voters were “frightened” and “feeling insecure” about the future of the country.
“I see [the election] as a reaction that is driven by lots of different motives, some of them having to do with people feeling insecure, frightened, disappointed, discouraged […] about their lives and the ongoing globalization of the economy.”
“Any of you who’ve read my book about what happened know that I think misogyny and sexism was part of that campaign, it was one of the contributing factors,” said Clinton.
“Some of it was old-fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women -and certainly the equality of women’s leadership- and some of it as an outgrowth of all of this anxiety and insecurity that is playing on people and leading them in a hunt for scapegoats,” she added.
