Hillary Clinton Reveals She Tried to Skip Trump's Inauguration”

Hillary Clinton went on British TV Friday and joked about the lengths she went to avoid attending President Donald Trump's inauguration.

She claimed, "we thought maybe others aren't going, so we called the Bushes".

While on "The Graham Norton Show", Clinton described how she and former President Bill Clinton tried to find a way out of their customary attendance. "And 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.' Bill and I looked at each other and said, 'We gotta go, '" she says.

As a former First Lady, Clinton graciously attended the ceremony alongside her husband, Former President Bill Clinton, and every other living president and first lady (With the exception of former president George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush, who were in the hospital at the time).

Viewing Trump's initial presidential speech as a "narrowing and a hammering of what he had said before", Clinton remembers the comment Bush was overheard saying.

In her new memoir, Hillary Clinton tried to make sense of it all and even admitted that she didn't want to go to his inauguration.

While on the British comedy talk show, Clinton reiterated what she wrote in her book about Trump's speech being "dark and divisive".

The most crushing disappointment of all, however, was that Clinton would be on the couch on her own during her pre-recorded segment, with auxiliary banterers Jack Whitehall, Gerard Butler and Jeff Goldblum corralled in a celebrity pen until she had done her bit.

"It's reported that at the end, George W. Bush says, 'That was some weird s-,'" Clinton said, laughing at the recollection. "What I wanted to have happened was despite the kind of campaign he ran I wanted him to rise to the occasion of being our president and being our president for everybody, not just people who supported him", she said.
