Clinton said it was hard to regroup psychologically after her electoral college defeat to Donald Trump, 304-227, even though she won the popular vote by more than two million ballots.
- Misogyny: Hillary Clinton said some people had problems with a woman being their President, something that was beyond her control.
"I really believe that we should've and still should take out his airfields and prevent him from being able to bbomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them", she said. "People have to know that they will be held accountable as war criminals as committing crimes against humanity if they engage in these kinds of oppressive, violent acts".
Former Secretary of State John Kerry insisted he was "gratified" that Trump had attacked Syria, adding that he believes more military action would be a way for the U.S. to produce a peace deal in Syria after years of civil war.
Certainly misogyny played a role that has to be admitted. The United States and other Western countries blamed Assad's armed forces for the worst chemical attack in Syria in more than four years.
"I think what Putin wanted to do was sow mistrust and confusion", she said.
"The combination of the Comey letter and WikiLeaks, which played a much bigger role than many people understand yet, had a determinative effect", Clinton said.
"I'm happy to be here", Clinton said after thunderous applause from the audience at the David H. Koch Theater in New York City.
Hillary Clinton has chided President Donald Trump for ordering massive airstrikes on Syria and said the U.S. can not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America's doors to them.
She said that she supports an independent investigation of Russian hacking into the election, including potential collusion by members of the Trump campaign. "Right?" Clinton said in a jab at Trump.
However, Clinton said the Trump administration is "going through some very public growing pains" - and that worries her, as an American citizen.
Other topics up for discussion included whether or not she'd consider running for office again.
