"Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley," she said in the 95-second video.

Even Hillary Clinton is down to see Wonder Woman, and it just might have something to do with President Donald Trump.

No, Hillary Clinton hasn’t seen Wonder Woman — yet. Clinton appeared in a surprise taped message at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards on June 13, and in a brief speech honoring actor and director Elizabeth Banks, she made a pointed, crowd-pleasing nod to both the pop-culture phenomenon and Donald Trump‘s presidency.Clinton admitted she hasn’t yet gotten a chance to see the new female-driven blockbuster, but told the audience: “I’m going to, in part because it’s directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins.” She then went on to draw a subtly sly comparison between the Amazonian superhero’s storyline and her own role in the 2016 presidential election. “Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster,” Clinton teased, “is right up my alley.” The quip drew a roar of laughter and applause from the crowd gathered in Beverly Hills for the ceremony.

BEVERLY HILLS, California — Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Sen. Kamala Harris made surprise appearances at Women in Film’s awards ceremony with special videos, while veteran newsman Dan Rather called the group’s work toward gender parity in entertainment an example of “basic American decency, tolerance and generosity.”

Comedian Jessica Williams hosted the unexpectedly patriotic Crystal + Lucy Awards Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where F-bombs flew freely and “Wonder Woman” earned applause anytime it was mentioned.

Clinton said she hadn’t seen “Wonder Woman” yet, but planned to: “Something tells me that a movie about a strong powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley,” she said before introducing Crystal Award-winner Elizabeth Banks.

It was not the Javits Center event we had planned for Hillary Clinton, but seven months after a sad night under that glass ceiling, Hillary Clinton finally did make her entrance and was cheerful, open, and honest.

She was interviewed by Cheryl Strayed who wrote (and experienced) Wild and said she’s been reading mysteries. She mentioned Louise Penny. I went through every Louise Penny book this year as an escape from the political news. I recommend her books! Very educational about Canada for Americans who might not know a lot of Canadian history and a nice, warm, small-town set of stock characters with whom you become friends.

What Is Hillary Clinton Doing Now? Writing a New Book, Reading Mysteries and Resisting Donald Trump

After Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump last November, she found solace in an unusual place: murder mysteries. As Trump was celebrating his victory and selecting his cabinet, she was diving into works by authors like Louise Penny, Jacqueline Winspear and Donna Leon.

The reason, she said, was simple: “It was very comforting because it”—solving the murder—”was somebody else’s problem.”

Touching on everything from those fictional crimes to chardonnay, Clinton spoke Thursday night to a packed house at Book Expo, a publishing industry event hosted by ReedPOP in New York City. The event took place in the Javits Center, the location for what was supposed to be her victory party on Nov. 8.

For the first few minutes in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, it seemed that Hillary might be embarking on an apology tour wherein every public speaking event for the next X number of months would have to consist of Hillary enumerating reasons why she is not president.  After the initial, compulsory mea culpas, however, the interview, moderated by Kara Swisher and Walter Mossberg, got into the real meat of how technology writ large including data collection and analysis, social media, and hacking affected both the running of the campaign and how people received and viewed information.

Hillary, as always, was informed and informative. She knows a lot about where the holes were, and it was fascinating to hear her explain what went wrong, what went right, and how to move forward.

A moment that was particularly gratifying was her response to a question about her Goldman Sachs speeches which, infamously, were weaponized (a word she used a lot) by Bernie Sanders and his surrogates. She said, very simply, “They paid me. Men make speeches, and they get paid.”  Toward the end, to one Swisher’s questions: “Are you running?” The short answer. “NO!” But she did say, “I’m not going anywhere.”  We’re all sure glad about that!

Hillary Clinton says Republicans might probe Trump if the party risks losing in 2018

She says the current probe in the House of Representatives isn’t good enough.
