Hillary Clinton Tells Ellen She Is 'So Tired of the Finger-Pointing'

The Democratic front-runner visited Ellen Degeneres to discuss Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. 


Hillary Clinton went on Ellen Degeneres's talk show Tuesday to discuss Bernie Sanders's dogged determination to stay in the nominating race and his commitment to contesting the Democratic convention in July.

Degeneres asked the former Secretary of State how she feels about Sen. Sanders staying in the running, despite calculations that indicate she has nearly secured the nomination through pledged and superdelegates. The out host then asked Clinton if she believes the Senator from Vermont should drop out of the race. Clinton noted that in 2008, when she was running against then-senator Barack Obama, she supported his bid for president after she suspended hers in early June.

"I do believe that Bernie will do that, " Clinton told DeGeneres.

"We have to unify," Degeneres suggested, prompting Clinton to add that she was tired of the "fingerpointing" and "scapegoating" culture of this election cycle.

The former New York Senator also called out presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying he continues to be "very derogatory" towards women. "There's just no evidence that he has an understanding of what women's lives are like today," said Clinton. She did commend Trump for getting this far in the race and garnerning enough votes to secure the nomination, but said she doesn't believe Trump will find success in the general election.

Clinton also played a game of "Who'd you rather?" choosing between different potential vice presidential candidates on the program. Kate McKinnon, who plays both Degeneres and Clinton on Saturday Night Live, also stopped by Ellen's set on Tuesday, and performed back-to-back impressions of both women -- in front of them.
