"Well, I'd like to be president", Clinton explained, to the audience's enjoyment.
Clinton made the remark during an interview on Friday after her questioner asked her what she thought of recent remarks by Holder that stated: "When [Republicans] go low, we kick them".
"This is the ultimate arrogance", Greg Gutfeld said.
"I think a lot of people definitely think she was screwed in this last election but no one is urging her to do this", the confidant said.
Clinton, however, refused to offer any endorsement, saying she was instead focused on the current midterms and with so many potential presidential candidates, she didn't want to get ahead of the race.
"Your fantasies are out of control", he said. "They have no idea what the United States stands for, what we're likely to do, what we think is important", she said. The clip even begins with her flatly saying "no" when asked if she'll run again.
Clinton had just finished arguing that what some call "political correctness" was "just politeness" that Democrats valued because they were all about diversity. When I say we kick them, I don't mean we do anything inappropriate, we don't do anything illegal, but we have to be tough and we have to fight.
CLINTON: Oh I have no idea, Kara, but I'm going to - I'm not even going to even think about it til we get through this November 6 election about what's going to happen after that, but I'm going to everything in my power to make sure we have a Democrat in the White House come January of 2021.
Longtime aide Philippe Reines told Politico earlier this month that there is a "not zero" chance that Clinton will seek a rematch against Trump. "Well, I'd like to be president", she explained.
Philippe Reines, a longtime confidant to the former NY senator, said he doesn't see any reason why she shouldn't throw her hat in the ring again. She's younger than Joe Biden by four years. Holder was the Attorney General under Obama, while Cory Booker is a Senator from New Jersey.
But she added, 'Well, I'd like to be president'. "She had 65 million people vote for her".
