Hillary Clinton is reportedly blaming NBC’s “Today Show” host Matt Lauer for focusing on her highly publicized email scandal at the presidential forum held in New York City’s U.S.S. Intrepid last September.
The 69-year-old Democrat is releasing a new memoir on September 12 titled “What Happened,” focusing on what caused her loss in the 2016 presidential bid against Donald Trump.
The Daily Mail reported Thursday Clinton wrote she was “ticked off” and “almost physically sick” by the morning show gabber's persistent focus on her emails.
“Lauer had turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush,” she reportedly wrote.
At the time, the anchor pressed Clinton about her email negligence, saying: “You’re communicating on highly sensitive topics. Why wasn’t it more than a mistake? Why wasn’t it disqualifying?”
