Hillary Clinton: 'Corrupt Human Tornado' Trump Is Obsessed with Me Because He Knows He's an 'Illegitimate President'

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ripped into President Donald Trump for continuing to use her as a political punching bag at his rallies and in tweets, long after he won against her in the 2016 election.

"I believe he knows he’s an illegitimate president. He know, he knows, that there were a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out the way it did and I take responsibility for those parts of it that I should," Clinton said on "CBS Sunday Morning."

"It’s like applying for a job and getting 6 million of letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado. And so, I know that he knows that this wasn't on the level," she continued, adding that is the reason, "he’s obsessed with me and I believe it’s a guilty conscience in so much as he has a conscience."

With the new whistleblower complaint and the release of the transcript of Trump's call between him and Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky, Clinton voiced her support for opening an impeachment inquiry. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially endorsed the inquiry this past week. 

"There should be an impeachment inquiry opened. I don’t care who you're for in the Democratic primary or whether Republican. When the president of the United States has taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and by that, defend the American people and their interests, uses his position to in effect extort a foreign government for his own political purposes, I think that is very much what the Founders were worried about," she said.

When asked what would happen if there is another four years of a Trump presidency, Clinton replied, "I don’t accept that or believe that will happen. I believe there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again and I’m hoping both the public and press understand the way Trump plays this game."

When talking about elections in Afghanistan on Friday, Clinton made a jab at the integrity of elections within the United States because like Afghanistan, "you know we have little experience ourselves with not perfect elections."
