Since spending months out of the limelight after the 2016 campaign, Clinton has re-emerged onto the public stage as the Republican Party grapples with Trump and the Democratic Party searches for a leader.

In a series of speeches, Clinton has shown a willingness to knock the President, as was on display at Tuesday's interview.

Clinton still has a lot of plans to continue resisting Trump.

But she declared herself geared up to stay politically active and involved with the Trump opposition, for whom "Resist" has become a popular slogan. "Who do these people talk to?" But the media's election post-mortems have mostly ignored it because it implicates the media's judgment.
