    Maryland (MD)

(WASHINGTON) -- Hillary Clinton was “sure” that she was going to win the 2016 election, saying she didn't realize it wasn’t going her way until election night, she told The View Friday morning.

The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate said she thought the race "was going to be a close, hard-fought campaign," but that she would ultimately come out on top.

When asked if she cried the night of the election, Clinton said, "No."

“No, we didn’t cry that night,” she said, referring to her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton explained her reaction was caused by a need to “be strong for my family and my friends and my supporters.”

She said the Oct. 29 letter issued by former FBI Director James Comey’s about continuing investigations into her emails cost her the election.

“I would've won but for Jim Comey's letter,” Clinton said.

“That stopped my momentum, and it really caused enough people to move away from me. Some moved to Trump. Some moved to third parties. Some didn't vote. The net effect was pretty clear,” she said.

Hillary Clinton's appearance on The View comes a day after her latest book, What Happened, went on sale.

Taking on the Trump administration

She responded to the remarks White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made during Tuesday’s press briefing about Clinton’s book, with the former Democratic presidential candidate saying, “I honestly don’t pay much attention to what she says.”

“Unfortunately -- and I don’t say this with any glee --I’m sad about it, we’re not getting the kind of information from this White House that we should,” Clinton said.

Clinton added that she believes in continuing to give President Donald Trump “a chance to lead,” as she said in her concession speech, but that didn’t stop her from criticizing Trump’s performance thus far.

“I'm very disappointed in what I've seen so far,” Clinton said. “I also hope that there can be a greater understanding of what it means to be president for the entire country.”

She specifically criticized the president’s handling of the threats and rising tensions with North Korea, saying that it is “a very serious issue” and adding that the U.S. needs to be working with its allies, such as South Korea, Japan and China.

“It doesn't help for the president on Twitter to insult South Korea. ... That’s not useful,” she said.

Weighing in on the investigation into Russian meddling

Clinton said she adamantly supports the investigation into Russian interference in the election, saying that “there’s a lot to investigate.”

“There’s a lot of smoke, and whether or not there’s fire, we need to figure it out,” she said. “There is no denying that the Russians interfered in the election, whether or not they had willing or unwitting help from the Trump…

    When filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick began research for a 10-part PBS documentary on the Vietnam War, they thought they knew the material. After all, Burns was of draft age in 1970, though his draft number was too high for him to be called to serve. But as they began interviewing subjects and sorting through archival footage, Burns and Novick soon came to appreciate just how complicated the war was. "We went in, both of us, with this kind of arrogance about it, and immediately had…

  9. 'Victoria And Abdul': Part Satire, Part Love Story, All Charming

    Victoria & Abdul is not the first movie to show the Queen of England cavorting with the help. And you don't have to be a cynic to read Stephen Frears' new film as a brazen attempt to piggyback on the runaway success of 1997's Mrs. Brown. In which, you may recall, the newly widowed monarch (played, as is only right and proper, by Judi Dench) found all kinds of implied solace in the company of a lowly Scottish servant (Billy Connolly) who raised every hackle on the royal entourage by…

    In 2014, the directing/screenwriting team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller surprised a cynical, jaded nation that was expecting, from The LEGO Movie, a cynical, jaded toy commercial. It was that, to be clear. But it was also frenetic, funny, colorful, clever and desperately eager-to-please: a hugely imaginative joyride through a riotous landscape of Warner Bros.-owned intellectual property. Movie as theme park. Mostly, though, it possessed something few putative tentpole blockbusters…

    In the story of Billie Jean King beating Bobby Riggs, told again in Battle Of The Sexes , it's often forgotten that she didn't particularly want to do it. In fact, she didn't do it until Riggs had badly beaten Margaret Court, who was one of the greatest players in women's tennis at the time. Court, who wasn't invested in feminism the way King was, treated it as an exhibition for money. But when she lost badly to a 55-year-old man, she inadvertently gave ammunition to people who believed — a…
