Hillary Clinton is still upset at the forces which led to her defeat in 2016, telling an audience Tuesday that Fox News was still out to get her.
“Fox News is always trying to impeach me, so somebody needs to tell them, that doesn’t apply to a private citizen,” the former Democratic presidential candidate told a group of women in New York City Tuesday. “When you’ve been accused of everything like I have, and you realize some people believe it, it’s really depressing.”
Under Trump’s leadership, Clinton said the United States is in a bad place.
“I think we are in a really bad spot because I don’t understand exactly how what is happening is going to better prepare us for the future. It just seems like we’re off on tangents, it’s very unpredictable, unstable,” she said. “I’ve been encouraged and really be admiring of the staying power of the resistance because it’s hard when you are fighting on so many fronts.”
In a bit of self-fulfilling prophecy, Clinton’s comments were immediately picked up by Fox News Wednesday, reaching the set of “Fox & Friends First” in the 4 a.m. hour. The remarks were also discussed on the “Fox & Friends” morning show, which runs from 6:00 a.m to 9:00 a.m.

Despite the naysayers, Clinton may have a point about Fox News. Despite being a private citizen for over a year, the channel has mentioned her name on air more than 60 times this week, according to the television monitoring service TVeyes.
