In an alternate universe, Hillary Clinton would have been the first woman to be President of the United States. On Thursday’s episode of the ABC daytime talk show The View, the panelists reacted to a video of Hillary Clinton reading the speech she would have read had she become the first female President of the United States in 2016.
In a moment in history that continues to reverberate through the United States, the former Presidential candidate shockingly lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
“We will not be defined only by our differences. We will not be an us versus them country. The American dream is big enough for everyone,” Clinton recited from her speech. “Through a long, hard campaign, we were challenged to choose between two very different visions for America. How we grow together, how we live together, and how we face a world full of peril and promise together.”
Clinton’s video received acclaim from 'The View' panelists.
“This is about resilience,” Whoopi Goldberg said. “If you ever think you can’t get over something, watch this. Because this tells you how to do it, and who you have to be, and how you find the kahunas to get back up again.”
Navarro also gave Clinton her flowers, expressing her conviction that a woman will be elected as President in the United States.
“There will be a woman president, and that first woman president is going to be standing on the shoulders of Hillary Clinton,” she said.
Sunny Hostin held Clinton’s speech in higher regard to Donald Trump’s presidential speech.
“It took me back to the twice-impeached, disgraced former president’s speech,” Hostin said. “It was like the apocalypse. It was carnage. It was disingenuous.”
