Hillary Clinton said that when she called President Trump the night he won the 2016 election to concede, the president was more surprised he won than she was.
"I called him that terrible night," the former secretary of state said in a Wednesday interview on The Howard Stern Show. "I said, 'Look, Donald, I want you to be a good president. I will do whatever I can to help you.'"
Howard Stern, 65, then asked Clinton whether the president was gracious in the phone call. "He was so shocked he couldn't — he could barely talk," the 2016 presidential candidate responded. "He was more shocked than me, I think."
Clinton, 72, also talked during the interview about Trump's inauguration, which she attended. "You know, I went to the inauguration of Donald Trump, which was one of the hardest days of my life, to be honest," she said. "Obviously, I was crushed, I was disappointed, and I was really surprised because I couldn’t figure out what had happened."
She said she found Trump's speech to be "bizarre" and that even former President George W. Bush said to her that it "was some weird shit."
After hearing President Trump’s inauguration speech, @HillaryClinton says she began to get nervous. And it sounds like she wasn’t the only one. “George W. Bush says to me, ‘Well that was some weird sh-t.’” pic.twitter.com/BOlOHaLpER— Stern Show (@sternshow) December 4, 2019
