Hillary Clinton is reveling in the fall of Matt Lauer, one of a handful of reporters who actually stood up to her during the 2016 presidential election.
“Every day I believe more in karma,” she said of Lauer on Thursday in Philadelphia, the Philly Voice reported.
The former secretary of state was at the Academy of Music to promote her book “What Happened.”
Clinton took a respite from her Russia blaming to turn to another favorite excuse for her election loss to President Donald Trump: Sexism.
Lauer, who has been sidelined by reports of sexual harassment and assault, is one of the “men who shaped the narrative,” according to Clinton.
That ignores the men who supported her, like Sen. Al Franken, Rep. John Conyers, Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, former Rep. Anthony Weiner and her own husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“The only way we will get sexism out of politics is to get more women in politics,” she said.
Her shot at Lauer is no surprise as Clinton ranted about the former “Today” show host in her book.
Lauer handled her roughly in an NBC News “Commander-in-Chief Forum” two months before the election which infuriated Clinton and her supporters.
“I was ticked off,” she lamented in her book. “NBC knew exactly what it was doing here. The network was treating this like an episode of ‘The Apprentice,’ in which Trump stars and ratings soar.”
“Lauer had turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush. What a waste of time,” she wrote.
Lauer was fired in a shocking move by NBC on Wednesday that was announced by his own “Today” show co hosts.
