Hillary Clinton says she 'couldn't have agreed more' with George W. Bush that Trump's inauguration was 'some weird s---'

Hillary Clinton said in her new book she agreed with former President George W. Bush's assessment of President Donald Trump's inauguration in January.

Writing in her newly released campaign memoir "What Happened," Clinton described contrasting her imagined inauguration with the inauguration playing out before her eyes.

"'That was some weird shit,' George W. Bush reportedly said with characteristic Texas bluntness. I couldn't have agreed more," Clinton wrote.
