Former President Bill Clinton is not holding back his thoughts on Donald Trump following his election victory.

Addressing several topics including the Russian cyber attacks on wife Hillary Clinton just weeks before the election, as well as the Trump team attempting to spread the false narrative that his election victory was a "landslide," Clinton spoke honestly. "[Trump] doesn't know much," he told the Record Review newspaper in early December. "One thing he does know is how to get angry White men to vote for him.”

As for his response to reports of Russia hacking the election (note: his comments were made prior to the CIA confirming that the 2016 election hack did indeed take place), Clinton says it was obvious to anyone who bothered to pay attention.

"You would need to have a single-digit IQ not to recognize what was going on,” the former Commander-In-Chief continued, but added that it was ultimately FBI Director James Comey who "cost" Secretary Clinton the election by announcing less than two weeks before Election Day that the FBI was investigating new information about her use of a private email server. 

According to Politico, former President Clinton's interview comments were published in the newspaper's print edition, but have yet to be published on its website.
