Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton derided Republicans in a recent New York Times Opinion podcast, calling them "cowards" and "spineless enablers."

Clinton said it makes her "literally sick" and would cause her "cognitive dissonance of a grave degree" to imagine President Trump winning reelection.

"It makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we'd have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions," Clinton said. "And damaging of our norms and our values. And lessening of our leadership. And the list goes on."

Clinton also suggested that most Republicans do not like the president.

"Most Republicans are going to want to close the page," Clinton said. "They want to see him gone as much as we do, but they can't say it publicly."

She then went onto say Republicans "have been cowards, spineless enablers."

Interviewer Kara Swisher also asked Clinton if she thought a female president would have handled the pandemic better.

"I have no doubt, especially if it were me," replied Clinton. "I have no doubt. I mean, I was born for that."
