Hillary Clinton Is Sounding the Alarm on Russia Like 'Paula Revere'
When Colbert asked Clinton to what degree she believes the Russians messed with America's democracy, the 69-year-old politician had a lot to say.
"Influencing voters, and therefore, influencing opinion," she said. "I don't know what the special counsel investigation [is] going to find. I'm going to wait for that. But I don't think anybody can with a straight face say that the Russians did not set out to influence our election ... I feel like I'm a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere. I'm trying to sound the alarm about this."
Hillary Clinton Couldn't Care Less What Vladimir Putin Thinks of Her
Clinton wrote in her book about how she believes Putin doesn't like democracy of America, but Colbert asked if Putin really just has an issue with her.
She agreed that may very well be the case, since she used to say things like, "The Russian people deserve free and fair elections. They deserve to have a democracy."
"I don't take it personally. I think it's part of his worldview, which is all tied up with his anger, his disappointment in the collapse of the Soviet Union, and his feeling that we're his No. 1 rival," she said. "And partly because I'm a woman, which does seem to get him a bit agitated."
Hillary Clinton Thinks Donald Trump's U.N. Speech Was Dark
Clinton, an experienced diplomat, thought they way the current POTUS spoke to the leaders of every nation at the United Nations gathering in New York City this week was extremely unprofessional and, quite frankly, dangerous.
"I thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world show be delivering," she said. "You are both required to stand up for the values of what we believe in, democracy and opportunity, as a way to demonstrate clearly the United States remains the beacon that we want it to be. While, of course, when you face dangerous situations, like what is happening in North Korea, to make it clear your first approach should always be diplomatic."
Clinton continued to say she was also baffled that Trump called Kim Jong-Un a "rocket man" in a time of crisis.
"We view this as dangerous to our allies, to the region, and even to our country. We call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat posed by Kim Jong-un."
