A Democratic Senator close to Hillary Clinton said that she is “hurting” following her recent loss to President-elect Donald Trump.
California Senator Dianne Feinstein, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that she’s “extraordinarily fond of this woman,” referring to Clinton.
Feinstein, who went to dinner with Clinton after they attended Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s retirement party, went on to say, “I think it is fair to say she’s hurting.”
“She is brave. She is a real professional in the sense of her values, care, concern. I think all of us know who watch that campaign, it was a very hard campaign for her — the name-calling, the email intrusion, the misinterpretation of what she had done with the emails,” she continued.
“11 hours she stood up to a committee while she was a candidate, and she stood up to it all,” Feinstein said.
Since her loss in November, Clinton has made only a few public appearances. At her first appearance, at the gala for the Children’s Defense Fund – held a week after the election – she talked about the struggles she had been facing since her loss.
“Now I will admit, coming here tonight wasn’t the easiest thing for me,” said Clinton, who appeared disheveled. “There have been a few times this past week when all I wanted to do was just to curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house again.”
Despite Clinton’s admissions of having a hard time, Feinstein said, “I think she has a spine of steel. I think she’s going to come through this fine, but I think this is really a tough time for a wonderful human being.”
