Since the election, and with a book coming out this week detailing about what happened, Clinton made clear in the Sunday interview that she's done running for public office.

Clinton also criticised Trump's address at his inauguration, which she attended in January out of what she deemed a sense of duty, as a speech that spoke to the anger of some white voters.

Contributing to her loss, in Clinton's view, are Russian hackers, accusations by then-FBI Director James Comey, and a primary battle with Bernie Sanders.

Clinton's Sunday appearance comes just days before her upcoming book, What Happened, becomes available for purchase.

"How are you?" And as if she was approaching a triggering topic, the CBS host asked Clinton for permission to talk about Election Day, 2016. "I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable". As Clinton was explaining how candidate Trump played to the "millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others", Pauley finished Clinton's thought and blamed it on "millions of white people".

While recalling her election night experience, Clinton expressed that the morning after, she had only written a victory speech and hadn't drafted a concession speech.

And, you know, my share of Chardonnay. "But I think in this time we're in, particularly in this campaign, you know, maybe I missed a few chances".

"George told me that his neighborhood was outraged, that many of his hard-working, church-going, family-loving friends resented being called that name", Hessan wrote an op-ed reviewing her findings.

So tell us more about how Trump is so much different a president than Hillary Clinton would have been.

'I was godsmacked, wiped out, ' she said.

'You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. "I'm sorry I gave them a political gift of any kind, but I don't think it was determinative", said Clinton.

She said the word "deplorable" was floating around in her head because 'Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner'. "There were a large number of people who didn't care". It did not matter to them. 'And he turned out to be a very effective reality TV star'. "And I should've done a better job of saying, 'I get it'".
