Hillary Clinton got pretty angry in an interview with Charlie Rose about just how “dangerous” Donald Trump is.
“No self-discipline, no self-control, no sense of history,” she said, “no understanding of the limits of the kind of power that any president should impose upon himself. He has shown none of that.”
Clinton declared that “what he has laid out is the most dangerous, reckless approach to being president” that we’ve ever seen.
Rose, in the rest of the clip shown earlier on TV tonight, asked if she thinks he’s the “most dangerous man ever to run for President of the United States.” Clinton said, “I believe that.”
“We’re either going to come together and face up to these challenges or we’re going to get even further divided, aided and abetted by the voices of bias and bigotry in our midst,” Clinton said.
“I want white people to really think hard about what it would feel like to have the talk where you sit your youngster down and say, ‘You know, you’re a good kid but I’m just warning you, you’ve gotta do everything to stay out of trouble with the police.’”

“Too many Americans feel like the economy has failed them and government has failed them, and just forget about politics,” Clinton said. “If we don’t get an economy that produces results for an increasing number of Americans, then we’re gonna see more of this demagoguery and this kind of rhetorical fear-mongering. And there are some terrible examples in history of where that leads. If we don’t get the government to get off its back and start functioning and get over the ideology and produce results, the same path could possibly be waiting for us.”
Clinton declined to discuss individual potential running mates ahead of a decision expected to be announced at the end of the week. She said she has met with a “bunch” of candidates and said, “I am blessed with a broad group of people to choose from.”
The Democrats’ decision to nominate the first woman from a major U.S. party as president is “revolutionary,” Clinton said. “And it is something that I’m very conscious of. And I intend to fight for every single vote that I can possibly get in this general election.”
