Hillary Clinton has claimed that Matt Lauer's questioning of her during an election special was so biased that 'Donald Trump should have reported his performance as a contribution in kind,' her new book reveals.

The former Democratic Presidential candidate said that NBC host 'turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush'.

Clinton - Sense - Lauer - Tongue

Clinton said that she 'fantasized about shaking some sense into Lauer' but held her tongue.

Clinton went on the attack in her new memoir, What Happened, her account of her loss to Donald Trump.

Book - President - Likes - Trump - Meaning

In the book she claims that no living former president likes Trump, meaning he is loathed by Jimmy Carter, George H W Bush, George W Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.

Such is former First Lady Michelle Obama's dislike of Trump that during his inauguration she swapped a glance with Clinton which said: 'Can you believe this?'

Clinton - Husband - Class - Democrats - Guns

Clinton also reveals that her husband warned her that she might lose because working class Democrats thought she would take away their guns as well as force them to go to gay weddings.

What Happened is Clinton's most personal memoir to date and, after four decades in public life, she says she is finally 'letting my guard down'.

Pages - Blame - Defeat - Finger - Others

Over 500 pages she accepts some blame for her defeat but points the finger at, among others; the media, Russia, partisanship, sexism, gerrymandering, the FBI, its former director James Comey and, of course, Trump.

The two candidates took part in a 'Commander-in-chief' event on NBC with Lauer last September, two months before the election.

Discussion - Policy - Candidate - Lauer - Front

It was billed as a discussion of foreign policy and each candidate was interviewed by Lauer one after the other in front of a live studio audience.

In her book, Clinton said that it was 'disappointing but predictable' that Lauer immediately asked about the scandal over use of a private email server.
