Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a New York audience this week that Fox News is giving her public statements unfair scrutiny because she is now a private citizen.

President Trump’s 2016 campaign rival told a sold-out room at Rutgers University last week that reporters should stop telling her to “go away,” but on Tuesday she delivered a slightly different message. Mrs. Clinton told a group of women that she is part of “the resistance” against the White House’s agenda, but she wants less coverage of her efforts from Fox.

“Fox News is always trying to impeach me, so somebody needs to tell them, that doesn’t apply to a private citizen,” she said, The Wrap reported. “When you’ve been accused of everything like I have, and you realize some people believe it, it’s really depressing.”

Mrs. Clinton added that America is “in a really bad spot” because the political climate is “very unpredictable.”

“I’ve really been admiring the staying power of the resistance because it’s hard when you are fighting on so many fronts,” she said.

“Fox & Friends First” fittingly covered Mrs. Clinton’s remarks Wednesday morning.
