“We got by that scattered time, and once again we began to thrive,” she continued.

Clinton also spoke about feign news and theories perpetuated on amicable media, joking that “some are even denying things we see with a possess eyes. Like a distance of crowds.”

He distinguished incremental swell and argued opposite protest, as NPR’s Tamara Keith reported. When it was Clinton’s turn, she ad-libbed a response to Brooke, dogmatic that consolation was not adequate in politics.

“Part of a problem with only consolation with avowed goals is that consolation doesn’t do us anything,” she said. “We’ve had lots of empathy; we’ve had lots of sympathy, though we feel that for too prolonged a leaders have noticed politics as a art of a possible.”

“The plea now is to use politics as a art of creation what appears to be unfit possible,” she continued.
