The Clintons were in Little Rock, Arkansas, over the weekend to celebrate the 25th anniversary of President Clinton's election. But Mrs. Clinton didn't mince words during an appearance at the event as she spoke about President Trump's continued attacks on her.
"Apparently, you know, my former opponent is obsessed with my speaking out," she told the crowd at the sit-down chat moderated by longtime Clinton campaign veteran James Carville. "Apparently there was another, somebody told me, tweet today."
On Saturday, Trump brought out his "Crooked Hillary" nickname once more in a tweet criticizing her for continuing to be a public presence despite her loss in the 2016 presidential election.
"Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!" the tweet read.
Clinton, and many others, wondered aloud how Trump has time to focus so much of his energy on her.
"Honestly, between tweeting and golfing, how does he get anything done? I don’t understand it. Maybe that’s the whole point," she mused.
But she insisted that Trump's attacks wouldn't keep her down, saying, "I’m gonna keep speaking out."
When it comes to her election loss, Clinton blamed a lot of it on the proliferation of "phony news," such as her alleged involvement in the murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich and running a child prostitution ring out of a D.C. pizza parlor, which a surprising amount of voters bought into.
"We cannot let our politics be turned into a fiction that benefits a very small minority of Americans."
She reiterated that point again, saying: "There is no such thing as an alternative fact. It does not exist — in politics or in nature. And it was astonishing to me the things people believed about me in this campaign."
"I’m going to do everything I can to try to have an election in 2018 that’s about real things," she added.
But if Trump can help it, Clinton will be on the mind of every voter come 2018, and Twitter has theories about why:
