Bill Clinton bashes Trump, says he couldn't be elected now because he doesn't like embarrassing people

Bill Clinton did not hold back when he was asked about President Trump on "CBS Sunday Morning" this weekend.

"I don't like all this," the former president said in response to a comment about Trump's Twitter activity. "I couldn't be elected anything now 'cause I just don't like embarrassing people. My mother would have whipped me for five days in a row when I was a little boy if I spent all my time badmouthing people like this."

Clinton was speaking to Mo Rocca alongside his "The President Is Missing" co-author, James Patterson.

He went on to say that he's reminded of his wife, Hillary Clinton's, loss in the 2016 to Trump on a daily basis.

"There's a Trump supporter here in town that I walked past his house with my dogs," Clinton said. "He had a 'Lock her up' poster in his front window. And I said to him, 'If you're gonna do that to my wife, you make sure the prisons are comfortable, 'cause you're gonna have a lot of company of your supporters in there!' And you know what he said? 'Obama and Hillary started the second Civil War.'"

"So, there's division. But underneath that, there's a core of fundamental decency that can be really skewed when people feel abused, left out, or looked down on," he added.
