In one of her first major public speeches since losing the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton didn’t miss the opportunity to condemn the Trump administration.
Clinton was the closing keynote speaker Tuesday at the 2017 Professional Business Women of California Conference in San Francisco, where she spoke to a sold-out crowd of thousands.
Her speech hit on women’s issues, inequality, and sexism in the workplace, and blasted President Trump for not having more women around the conference table or in his administration.
Clinton referenced a recent article in The New York Times suggesting that “it may not be an oversight at all, but an intentional signal that says, ‘Don’t worry, the men are in charge of everything.'”
She threw up a picture of dogs sitting around a conference table with the caption, “Discussing feline care.”
Press Secretary Sean Spicer was poked, as well, when Clinton blasted him over a recent interaction with journalist April Ryan in the press room, claiming that she (Ryan) was just doing her job when Spicer cut her off.
Clinton also blasted FOX host Bill O’Reilly for his recent comment that Congresswoman Maxine Waters looked like she was wearing a “James Brown wig.” O’Reilly has since apologized for that statement.
Finally, she encouraged the “resistance movement” to keep at it, saying, “There’s a little mantra I’ve been repeating to myself lately … the kind of thing that pops into your head when you take a lot of long walks in the woods. But as I think about the outpouring of activism we’re seeing — despite all the noise and the nonsense — four words keep coming back to me: resist, insist, persist, enlist.”
Below are two videos of short clips from Clinton’s speech.
