Putin Manspreaded Every Time He Met With Hillary Clinton


Hillary Clinton stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss her new book, What Happened.

Hillary Clinton stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night to talk about her new book, the perfectly titled What Happened. While being interviewed, Clinton discussed Russia, which she covers extensively in her latest publication, as well as sexism, misogyny, voter suppression and the bizarre behavior of the former director of the FBI.

On Putin, she explained: "He doesn't like democracy. He thinks it's a really inconvenient, messy process. And he doesn't like us. He wants to destabilize our country--sow doubt about our democracy."

She continued to relay a story of the sexism she felt from Putin during her meeting with him as Secretary of State, which led to his grudge for her "Partly because I'm a woman, which does seem to get him a bit agitated."

In fact, Putin appears to have treated Clinton with very little respect during their political encounters--as Clinton explains: "As I write in the book, there's an expression--we certainly know it in New York--called manspreading. And every time I met with him, it would be the whole deal."

What Happened is available now at bookstores everywhere. Take a look at Clinton's charming and insightful Late Show spot, below:
