In an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow aired Monday night, Hillary Clinton explains why she believes there has been a "concerted effort" to cloud people's judgment of her. Clinton says she is only left to conclude one reason why she has been a constant target: "Because they're afraid of me"
"I have to only conclude that there is a concerted effort to try to make partisan advantage by really throwing so much at me that even if little splotches of it stick, it will cloud people's judgment of me," Clinton told Maddow.
"That's a burden I will carry," Clinton said.
"I want your viewers and anyone else who would be interested in this to ask themselves, why does the right and particularly the Republicans, spend so much time, money and effort through the media, through their advertising?" Clinton rhetorically asked. "Because you look at the Republicans are running more ads against me than they run against each other. Why? I'll tell you why. Because they are afraid of me. They know that I will be a president who, yes, I will listen to people but I will stand my ground and I know how to get things done. That's the last thing these guys want to see again."
